Halloween Party

We had some good friends and family over for a pre-trick or treat dinner party…  It really was a great way to spend the holiday!  We had chili with all the fixin’s, corn bread, chips, cookies and these amazing cupcakes that my neighbor made… The cupcakes were so amazing in fact that no one wanted to eat them…  The best part of the night was of course the kids in their cute costumes going door to door asking politely for their special little baskets to be filled with all sorts of great treats!

BDP_3436The boys and I made spiders for decoration…  I used black construction paper cut into a circle for the body… Fan folded strips of black paper for the legs and used a white crayon to draw the faces… I certainly wouldn’t want to find one of these guys in the corner of my living room!

BDP_3440I made these “mummy cups” by wrapping a paper cup in gauze and sticking some google eyes to the front of the cup… I filled the cups with glow sticks, pencils, erasers, noise makers and a sucker and gave one to each of the kids…

BDP_3560What is a special holiday without cut out cookies!  My kids love rolling, cutting and even decorating cookies!

BDP_3565My neighbor Melanie made these amazing cupcakes.  I’m not going to even attempt to tell you how she did it!  One thing I know for sure is that they were so cute no one wanted to eat them!  THANKS MELANIE…
