This has been quite a week in preparation for All Hallows Eve. D&B have been busy at home and with our friends doing all kinds of tasty and crafty things that make the Fall season fun. The weather has even been pretty nice! Somebody knock on wood…Ryan, where are you when I need to knuckle your head? 😉
We made caramel apples a la Annie. They were yummy!
We painted some cute Jack-O-Lanterns from Kari.
The persnickety painting princess. She painted the other side of her pumpkin pink with sparkles.
That Jack-O-Lantern has the same number of teeth that Drew is missing. Big money!
The march of shame. Don’t touch ANYTHING until you get in the shower!
The other night Brinley whipped up this “scary monster.” I was quite proud of her spur of the moment craftiness.
This is the best way to use up extra frosting. That way I’m not tempted to lick it off their faces.
I don’t know what it is about black paint, but the kids were covered in it.
Brinley ended up with black paint on her hiney. She must have had an itch.
Precise placement of the pipe cleaner legs and googly eyes is required.
Our spiders ended up with a major case of conjunctivitis. Next time we’ll splurge for some clear glue.
Our cute little spider spawn. These little guys live on the kids’ bedroom doors. Maybe they are the reason Drew ends up crawling into Brinley’s bed in the middle of the night?
And finally, our collection of constuction paper scaries…
It will be a sad day when these come down.
