I know it's been a loooooong time since my last post--  my computer's hard drive died and I've been slowly getting it back to normal again. Just in time for my niece's second birthday this Friday. I love having a niece whose birthday is on Halloween. I get to celebrate my favorite holiday with someone I love! We're celebrating her birthday on Saturday and I made her a birthday mix for the occasion. It's a blending of Halloween songs for kids and some not-too-spooky songs that I think have a good vibe for a kids' Halloween/Birthday party. Sophia is just starting to put words together into phrases and short sentences. The title of the mix comes from something she was saying the other night while we were all driving home from a dinner out together.

I don't know if you have kids or if you ever plan on having kids or if you're a professional nanny or whatever, but I hope all of the above. this stuff is incredible and would give any child wonderful life-long Halloween memories. favorites? "Guess What I Am?," "The Rockin' Ghost," "The Headless Horseman," "The Blob," "Lullaby of Ghost Land" and the entire bunch from "Halloween Cats" to "I'm a Little Jack-o-Lantern." ghoulishly terrific!
