Happy Halloween!

No trick or treaters this year, unfortunately - it's blowing like the dickens out there and pouring rain to boot, but we had our own little Halloween celebration inside.

You'll remember from last year's gala that we like to make spooky food for dinner on October 31st.

eyeball salad, witches fingers, vulture wings and scary soup (with a big wave to Sandra in Korea!)

dirt pudding with cookie ghosts and gummy worms

Is your mouth watering yet?

The boys carved pumpkins too. (Boy13's on the left, Boy10's on the right)

and of course we lit up the yard a bit to confuse the neighbours

Back to "normal" tomorrow.

You really know how to celebrate, Christina. I declare!

Every time I visit your blog, I leave hungry.

You have an incredible amount of creative energy. I would have never thought to make a scary dinner for Halloween.

But...where's the Bloody Cesar?

Only you could make stuff called "witches fingers," "vulture wings" and "eyeball sanwiches," and leave us all drooling!

Happy Halloween!

That is so cool ... I gain weight while visiting here.

No trick-or-treaters here also ... I guess the candy I have left over won't help on the weight front.

I was wondering what you'd be cooking up for Halloween. That looks "dreadfully" good!

Living in a small expat community, we had plenty of gobblins, witches and littles princesses ringing our doorbell. We even had a toilet bowl visit us!

I want to come live at your house. You guys look like you have so much fun!

Your pictures look like they're out of a magazine! What a mom!

Yes, back to normal, please....!

Dixie - We do have lots of fun. The kids really love it.

Ginnie - A bit of silliness now and then keeps us all sane.:-)

Sal - Well, amigo, you're no shabby cook yourself. Sometimes I wish I could put some of that creative energy into more mundane tasks. I drank the Bloody Caesar before dinnner, of course!

Carol - The yuckier the name, the more the kids like it, right?

mikeb - Sure, sure, blame it on my blog. :-) Save the candy for St. Martin's Day. You'll have kids for sure then.

CanSwiss - A toilet bowl! Awesome. Must have been fun to see the little kids. I saw two witches when I was out shopping in the afternoon but I guess it was too dark and windy in our street this year.

swissmiss - You're welcome any time. I'm sure when Small Boy gets older he'd love that type of thing.

Cathy - Thank you, but don't be fooled! The rest of the house is definitely NOT Better Homes and Gardens. I just shove the debris aside when I take a picture. ;-)

Wow, Christina! I wish I was motivated (and creative) enough to whip up a batch of witches fingers and eyeball goo! I need to get my act together next year because Halloween is one of my favorite holidays!

Hope yours was fun!

You truly know how to celebrate every holiday! always enjoy your pics and menu :)
I have seen the weather chaos in northern Germany on TV, heading to HH tomorrow and hoping for quiet weather..

I think everything looks great! I hope to be able to do something like this with our kid(s), when they arrive.

oh I love it!!!!
That dessert looks so appealing and considering that it's past lunch and I haven't eaten yet, I'm starving...

Love it!!! I went to photo class and thought of what I was missing outside..

Maybe next year I'll volunteer to go out with kids.

Betsy - I'm sure your little guys could give you some great ideas so you can go for it next year.

mar - Hope the wind in HH didn't blow you away!

pardon my french - The kids really love it. You can start by dressing up your baby like a pumpkin next Halloween!

Expat - Thanks! You should definitely go out with the kids next year. I went out with one of my nieces one October when I was visiting Vancouver and it was so much fun.
