tricks and treats

“Trick or treat, you’re so neat.
Give me something good to eat.
Nuts and candy, fruit and gum.
I’ll go away if you give me some”

– Unknown

A few pictures of our trick or treat adventuring. . .

Halloween at Munkey Joe’s house is always a spooky affair, but as always, T is unaffected by such things as severed heads (though she was a tad bit concerned about the worms in his mouth),

Spooky cemeteries,

and giant fuzzy spiders (AWWW!)

Even such frightful faces as her own daddy with a hole in his head

and the terrifying zombie version of Munkey Joe didn’t phase her one little bit!

Ro didn’t care either. She liked the giant fuzzy spider just fine!

But there was much trick or treating to being done, so T headed out with her cousin Abby in search of some sugary goodness.

And sugary goodness they found!

lots and lots of it!

Mmmmmmmm. Candy!

at the end of the night, a tired (and thirsty) Teaball hitched a ride home on the twins’ wagon.

Bu those weren’t ALL the treats this holiday brought us. . . we had other special things, too!

Not all treats are edible, and this adorable Halloweenie hair bow collection arrived on our doorstep from Kendall’s TuTu Perfect Creations. She makes such beautiful girly things for us! (Thanks a MILLION, Momma!) T loves these, and Ro. . . well, she doesn’t pull them off so fast that I can’t get a picture 😉

But most of them WERE tasty treats,

. . . like Puff’s new favorite – MummyDogs!

These are what inspired our mummy craft – and T’s new (weird) obsession!

And what better way to eat them than with some fantastically spooky mac n’ cheese with noodles shaped like bats, jack o’ lanterns, and – you guessed it – MUMMIES!?

They look odd, but we made (and loved) banana and yogurt frozen ghostie pops with spooky raisin faces! Super simple kiddy creation…

And when we saw some Halloween sprinkles at Target’s $1 spot, we had to make enough mini cupcakes to accommodate them. . .

with Pilsbury’s special Halloween funfetti cake mix and icing!

we made SO many cupcakes. . .

. . . with SO many sprinkles (and candy corns) on top. . .

. . .it was ridiculous!

(and so was her face by the time we were done!)

Hope you had a treatastic Halloween!
