There were just too many great moments and great fun and great food to share. Although, be forewarned, I see a pumpkin recipe (or two) to come during the month of November.
Hey! It's a fall season food, not just Halloween!
Here are my three kiddos and all their Halloween finery.
This year, in sixth grade, Evan and his classmates were directed to choose some friends to team up with to dress in a costume that reflects teamwork. Some kids came as parts of a s'more, some were members of the rock band KISS and my son and his friends? Mario and the gang, of course! It's fitting, really, since these three are typical video-game obsessed adolescents.
Why are there crickets chirping?

|It was a fun night for the Mom friends too! Hi Marla and Michelle!!|
As frightening as this is from a mother's point-of-view, there is also the side of me that is secretly excited at the prospect of these being in my house:
|A cookie lover at heart, if I have to eat candy, this is what I reach for every time.|
|I always set the Heath bars aside for my Mom. One of her few indulgences.|
|These are the candies that automatically go into the donate bag. |
Yuck! Yuck! And triple YUCK!

Put down the peanut butter cups Jenna and no one gets hurt.
