Warts Up Halloween Treat

Hello there!!!!  I have been so busy, and I also got to actually talk on the phone to the that guy in Korea!  He called me on Thursday, and he said that I need to have an adventure and come to Korea!!!!  I actually really want to do it, but the plane tickets are so expensive!  My family and friends are telling me that I would be crazy not to do it...  I think it would be really exciting and fun!  :)  Anywho, I am so excited that tomorrow is the first day of October!!!!  I LOVE Halloween!  My students at school are already getting excited too...  All month long we dance to my favorite Halloween music, they get to dress up on that day, I read all my favorite Halloween books to them, etc...!!!  This week at Joy's Life, we were asked to create a Halloween treat project.  When I was at Target one day, my niece helped me find the perfect candy to use on this project.  It is so creepy and disgusting!  :)  Best of all, the candy has no dairy in it, so my niece can eat some of it...  Okay, here's my Halloween treat...
