halloween food goodness

I love any reason to celebrate. And Halloween gets oodles of attention. I like creating, and decorating, and kind of sort of like my kids too, so, well this is what you get.

This was what I packed for lunch. I cut out sandwiches in the shape of pumpkins, made witches fingers out of string cheese and bell pepper nails, and monster mouths out of apple, peanut butter, and marshmallows. I topped it off with a little note, and drawings. I so wanted to play a trick and fill their lunches with fake bugs, but maybe next year.

I decorated the table, and chandelier, complete with skulls and hanging bats, that Baloney spent hours trying to knock down.

We ate:

Mummy Dogs

Spider cupcakes

Goblin Brain

Monster Eyeballs

Goblin Guts

Vampire Blood, complete with blood thirsty worms.

Any moment that I can sprinkle magic into the lives of my children, I'll take it. It is most certainly about the little things. :)
