for the first time in 6 years we have had to cancel our party. my husband is working out of town the entire month, including the weekend we had scheduled the party. we cancelled in plenty of time, but I get text messages and people asking every day if we are sure we have to cancel it. makes me sad and happy at the same time, knowing that so many people see the hard work and are really going to miss it as much as us this year. I have lots of projects to do, so I guess this gives me extra time. I can't even go into a Halloween store or decorate at work, as I have to ignore it's coming....
