boo

We're stretching Halloween out over three days this year because Boy9 is going on a four-day field trip with his class first thing Monday morning and he didn't want to miss any of the action.

We carved three pumpkins today and may do a couple more on Sunday, depending on how well the field trip packing is going. Other exciting activities included:

Mr. M's ghostly tree




Boy9's scary lanterns




Boy12's swamp water to go with dinner




Dinner - bat, pumpkin, ghost and skull-shaped chicken nuggets and fries.




Dessert - lobotomized oranges filled with ice cream and bloodshot eyeball cupcakes. Yum!





I didn't make the following cuties, but I wish I had


If our beady red eyes don't scare you to death, our artificial colours surely will!

More Halloween fun tomorrow!

Hey Christina,

I love how cool, original and non-landfill all your Halloween stuff is! It's just awesome!

We would love to see you, Boy9 and Boy12 as well as your husband here next year - we can hike up to Castle Frankenstein. I'm sure it would be a hoot for the boys.

Gosh, thanks for the compliments. *blush* It was all pretty spontaneous, actually, like most of our holiday celebrations. Everything came together well, though, and the kids thought it was fun.

Wow! Now that is how holidays should be celebrated with the family!! Very nice!!

Awesome decorations! At my last job we did a Fear Factor Potluck for Halloween, it was so cool what people brought, and I like those lobotomized oranges & the swamp water!

You might just be too creative for you're own good! Remind me not to show you our single, poorly-carved pumpkin head.
