|Getting ready to shop|
The night before I went shopping I asked Doodle what he wanted to dress up as. He said a ninja so I figured I'd be able to pull that off. My boys are still young enough that I don't have to take them with me to shop for their costume. I know what they like at this point.
There were costumes to choose from for my youngest and I was worried that now I had an idea, but would they have the ninja costume? Thank goodness they did and he has worn it ever single day since I bought it! Next I started scooping up candy. I got mixed candy to hand out in the new treat bowl I also stuck in my cart! Then I found some Halloween Peeps, which made it at day at the house.
|Time for some baking|
|Time to decorate|
Last Saturday, my best friend came over for coffee and she decided she was going to help me do some decorating. Man am I glad because she can envision this kind of stuff where I just look at it and wonder where to start! She grabbed the spider web and started pulling it apart. One thing I was bummed about in regards to the spider web was that there were no spiders included and all I could find at Kmart were spider rings. We made them work.
|The house and kids decorated|
Finally today, Monday, I was able to have the neighbor kids come over for some necklace making and cupcake decorating. I had to work all weekend so no time to bake or invite people over. I know my kids and the neighbor kids are older so I wasn't sure if they'd think I was lame with my ideas or if they'd embrace them. HA! They were so excited to get creative!
First they went for the necklaces, except for Doodle who never follows the crowd. He wanted his cupcake done first and he went for all the sprinkles!
Buddy and his friend, along with the neighbor girl had quite the experience with their candy necklaces. They kept forgetting to watch the end they weren't stringing and ended up with several half strands of candy pinging all over the floor. Five second rule was in effect tonight!
