We had two Halloween parties: one the night before and one on Halloween. We took Abs to the first one but decided to let her stay the night with GramB and PapaBon for the second one. I forgot to take many pictures of the first one.
I’ve got a Bun in the Oven, and J’s the Bun Maker
You can click on the pictures to see the details of my costume. It was simple to make, and it was super cheap! We only had to buy the apron ($3), chef hat ($3), spray paint, and a hot glue gun. We had all the other stuff on hand. The oven box is made from Abs’s Huggies diaper box.
As you read here, she was a little lamb.
Halloween night we went to a party thrown by our besties, Tiffany and Justin (Tinkerbell & Peter Pan).
Nancy & Jacob came as a UPS worker and his package
The Bookers were the Swine Flu
Our team won in charades
And our pumpkin tied for first in the Pumpkin Contest
So, at the end of the night, we went home as winners of the “Date Night Package” (a Chili’s gift card, wine glasses, and roses, in a cute basket.
If you use Firefox or an updated version of Internet Explorer, you might notice a little icon in the address bar, to the left of http:// . . . . These are called favicons.
Gmail’s favicon is an M over an envelope, Craiglist’s favicon is a peace sign, Ebay’s favicon is “ebay”. If a website has not customized a favicon, the icon looks like a blank page (see blue arrow in above image). Boring. I noticed these favicons a few months ago and decided I wanted one. So, I chose a Gerber Daisy (see red arrow in above picture). They’re my favorite. Hint hint.
Anyway, if you don’t have a favicon yet, here’s how you can get one . . .
- favicon.cc- On this site, you can “paint” your own favicon (16 x 16 pixels). You can upload an image, use animation, adjust the color, or paint it.
- FavIcon from Pics- On this site, you can upload any image, and the site will make your favicon to the right size. You can animate it or add color or words.
- favicon generator- This site gives you a cleaner looking image because you must upload an image that is the correct size (100 x 100 pixels). So, you can only use this site if you can scale an image to be 100 pixels square on your own. I chose to use this site. I made the image with Microsoft Picture It, but I’m sure that any photo editing software you have can also resize an image to the correct proportions.
Did you use another site to make a favicon? Are you going to make one now? Let me know if you have questions.
