Trick or Treat
Tonight is Trick or Treat Night. Try explaining to an almost 5-year old why children don't trick or treat on Halloween proper. Even I don't understand why that is but apparently in this area, it's just not allowed.
I had nothing to post today so I thought I'd find some Halloween pictures since, for all intents and purposes, it is Halloween here tonight.
I made these cookies for my son's first Halloween party at school (now, they have 'Fall Celebrations' instead of Halloween parties). They came out awesome. I've never been able to get that same glaze recipe to set like that again.
This was another attempt at cookies where I resorted to almond bark and I was NOT pleased at all with the results:
These are three of my older son's past costumes. He didn't want one this year and frankly, I was thrilled to not have to spend the money for a costume he would usually only keep on long enough for me to take a picture (and then maybe even not that long - I can't find a picture of his giraffe costume). He may look happy in these pictures but believe me, except for the first one, he wasn't.
First Halloween in '04 (and that is not poop in that picture! I think it's a foot from another child's animal costume.):
Halloween in '06:
Halloween in '07:
I'll be back tomorrow if I get a chance to document what I'm making for dinner tonight.
