We went as Monster High and The Wolf Man. I have to say, this has been one of the busiest---most memorable Halloween weeks. I'm so glad we decided to dress up.
I spotted the witch fingers, probably on Pinterest. Super easy. Just melt white chocolate, add food coloring. Dip large pretzel rods in melted chocolate. Put on wax paper, place almond for nail. Using a toothpick draw knuckle lines. Easy---Easy-----and Super gross and creepy.
Jake was Damaged Darth Vader. He's so excited for the Star Wars movie this December. He had a blast hanging out with his buddies and trick or treating. They also had a Book Costume Parade at his school. I tried to talk him into another costume, since they don't allow masks and I didn't have time to do his makeup---but he wouldn't budge :)
Dan and I were in charge of the school party craft. We found some cute kits at Michael's and called it good. I think they turned out really cute :) You could even add a string or apply a magnet.
October is always full of lots of birthdays for our family.
I looked high and low for a Minecraft cake for Jake's birthday. They are pretty hard to find, but our local Harmon's custom made one for us. I love how it turned out. Minecraft balloons are also very hard to find, so I just went with the Minecraft colors and laaaa loved it too :) It was a pretty great day.
We celebrated birthdays for Austin, Jake, Dan, Flower and also welcomed Baby Alicia to our family. We're so excited to be Grandparents!!
Jake's party was at Boondocks again this year. He invited his best friends and they played all night bowling, golfing, paddle boats, laser tag and gaming. I'm pretty sure he had a GREAT time :)
I'll share a few more recipes this week as we get ready for Hallow's EVE, one of my favorite times of the year.
Boy was it hard to go back to work on Monday. We had such a fun amazing week!
Last week was my birthday, so we did a lot of celebrating. We went to Applebee's for dinner and then home for cake and ice cream. I LOVE strawberry filled cake with whipped topping. Dan always finds me the perfect cake.
We hung out with my mom and sisters on Friday. My sister treated us all to shakes at Arctic Circle. Jake loves his Aunties.
On Saturday night, we ate at Rumbi after church and then headed to a college basketball game. Weber State Wild Cats---we WON! Weber State Weber State---Great Great Great. ( I can't get this cheer out of my head). I always forget how much fun it is to go to these games. Our credit union was giving out free tickets. We got there early and scored free t-shirts. Jake of course had waaaaay too much popcorn.
Sunday, Aaron and Jess came over. Dan made his famous chicken dinner and I whipped up a really time consuming batch of Rice Krispy Treats.....ha!
At the end of each month, I look through all of my photos and make a quick Project Life layout with the app. It just gives me an idea what photos I need to print for the month and helps me along the way.
