This is what October and Halloween is all about, TRICK OR TREATING! We ate dinner at Countrys BBQ which has there waitresses dress up and kids eat free then headed out to Autumn Ridge subdivision and wheeled the kids around. We had a good time but crashed HARD at the end and had to book it home where we of course put on our cutest Halloween jammies that glow in the dark and heading to bed for the best day ever tomorrow.....Reeses 4th birthday!!!

Pumpkin carving time!!! Its time here in Georgia to carve your pumpkin! You can't carve to early because the humidity will cause you pumpkin to mold and become even more scary, of course if thats the look you are going for.Picture of a little pumpkin reese had to carve only a few days ago...
Reese gutted our pumpkin and I carved out the Nightmare before Christmas mans face.

We got the kids some Franken berry cereal just for the fun of it and they where so excited to eat the spooky cereal. I normally dont buy "treat" cereal but it seemed like a fun treat for the kids. You can find them at your local supermarket for about $2 a box.

Halloween Jello. It was a pain to make. It took a long time. It came out cute. Our colors would have been better had we stayed with orange and yellow but I dont like lemon or orange Jell-o so I chose peach and pineapple and Reese had to have a purple streak so I put that on the bottom. The unflavored Jello you is to make it with smells AWFUL! It almost made me gag. I wouldn't make it again but the kids liked it. Here is the LINK if you dare to try it :) Sorry for the way blurry pics my camera was acting funny and I didnt bring the good one with me that day.

Pumpkin patch time!! We went to a local "pumpkin patch" (really a local nursery that has pumpkins for sale and little hay ride) with our local playgroup. The kids had a blast picking out there pumpkin. Brodie would of taken everyone if we would have let him. Reese picked out a little baby pumpkin and she is the mommy. It was a cute little outing with the kids. :)

Tonight I am making shepards pic for dinner. I wanted to make the ghost pile of potatoes on tip but I didn't want them to get all dried out in the oven so I just took some Halloween cookie cutters and cute out some halloweeney shapes out of the cheese. Who doesn't need a chunk of yummy cheese on top? YUM! Sorry my pumpkin looks a little sad he lost his stem when he was cut.

Today I made chocolate covered Oreos. They were supposed to be orange but the white chocolate was acting up so I ended up with white chocolate ones covered in Halloween sprinkles. Still a hit!! YUMMY! Sorry I didn't have the camera on me again. I know post are boring without pics.

My kids LOVE fries. What kids doesnt right? I am trying to get Reese to eat better these days. I dont worry about Brodie so much because he is still at the age that eats anything. So last night I made special Halloween fries...aka Sweet Potato fries. Brodie didnt like them and kept making funny noises and such but he ate a few and Reese ate her fill and was done, no comments made on how they where yucky or anything....I might have to try this "trick" again ;)

We did marshmellow art today. We made a pumpkin out of the colored marshmellows we had left over from another craft. You can also make a ghost out of white ones on black paper. Reese enjoyed her "snack" and craft in one :) I drew a really rough pumpkin and she lined it with orange marshmellows for the pumpkin and green for the stem, she took it a step further and made a pink face. :)

We had Reese birthday party at my moms house on Saturday. My mom and I have decided that house parties are a lot of work and from now on we are going to a location so we dont have to clean up and be the entertainment for the little ones. Reese had a awesome time telling me that it is the best party ever!! We had the little girls come dressed up like princesses and we decorated crowns, painted nails, did glitter hair and had a wacking of a princess pinata. Even though they wacked me a few times! Ouch! It was really fun seeing my little princess playing with her friends and having a good time. She is getting big way to fast!! Stay little my little princess!! I love you!

Today I made or should I more correctly say I tried to make candy corn pinwheel cookies. I am not a patient person. Something I need to work on. Desperatly. So my dough was a little sticky because I didnt let it sit in the fridge and get cool long enough so we ended up with tie dyed cookies. Still yummy and still cookies so not that much of a fail! LOL! This where I got my recipe and they are supposed to look like this....
and well, we ended up with this...
like I said tie dyed cookies ;) One had a little swirl.
I need to practice my patience with cookie dough. When I want a baked good I want it now! LOL!
