halloween haunts. . .
. . .this past weekend was halloween. . .
both the boys had parties at school on friday, i gave myself a martha moment and made really easy chocolate dipped pretzels for them to bring in and share with the class. thanks to the lovely wilton bags - they looked darn near professional.
saturday john put on a big batch of southern living chili and i intended to make the kids mummy dogs for dinner. . .we waited for the rain to stop. . .it didn't. . .we went out to look for a carving pumpkin, since the pre-halloween weather didn't cooperate either - and we found ourselves without a big pumpkin in as long as I can remember. . .but the halloween gods were smiling on us, and we got the last, mostly orange, large pumpkin in the lot. . .
we came home and john helped get the house set up - even though it was STILL rainy and rather miserable out. . .i carved the pumpkin. . .we loaded up the candy and the kids and i got into our costumes
john took the kids around to the neighborhood houses, and i stayed behind and handed out candy and enjoyed a nice glass of yellow tail. . .
the rain got the better of us and we called it quits early - but not before the kids each had a bag of candy : )
how did you celebrate?
catch you soon -
