feeling spooky....

well tonight is trick or treat night AND the kids halloween parties at school.  Last night while Jacob was at his Cub scout party, Emmy and Sam tried on some costumes...my favorite for Sam is the penguin.  it's too funny!


Mr. Choo-Choo!


To get ready for a spooky time tonight, Nick and I carved our pumpkins.  We saved the seeds and sauteed them in butter and added kosher salt...delicious!


our pumpkins...(left to right) my pumpkin with the charlie brown shirt mouth (we watched "it's the great pumpkin charlie brown" last night....wow that brought back some memories!!), emma's is next (carved by daddy), then there's nicks super cool warty pumpkin!  I love how it looks!  They all will look awesome all lit up on the stoop tonight!



emma's party favors.  i blanket stitched two pieces of felt together, we glued glitter felt eyes, mouths and noses on.  Then I added a cookie inside (wrapped in cellophane (oatmeal with raisins,m&m's and lots of nuts) then added two pixie sticks tied with green ribbon as the stem and leaves!  I love how they turned out!


our yummy pumpkin seeds all wrapped up and ready to go!


more chocolate dipped pretzel sticks for the party...


Apricot bars...omg...delicious!  saving these for trick or treat tonight
as a "healthier" snack!

Now, off to shower and get the kids dressed to do the school halloween parade..sky is looking a little gloomy..hope the rain holds off!!
