Bring it!

Hope and I made Graveyard Pudding for Peyton's and Nannie's class last night. Even though Peyton and Sommer are spending the weekend away we thought it would be nice to keep our Halloween traditions going. Hope says she will make chocolate stinky fafas and graveyard pudding with her kids one day.
It's not as fancy as we used to make it, but budget cuts and other restraints mean a bare bones graveyard, pardon the horrible pun. S'okay, we had an awesome time and it tastes much better than it looks.

Bring it on! I'm a fluent reading, sweet smilin', mommy hugging champion!

Halloween is so much fun with kids!

This year I really cut back on my Halloween baking/prep, too--no witches' fingers, no ghost pops, no monster eyes.

But I did manage ghost cakes, body fluids punch, and pond scum. A little fried skin chips and bloody pulp, sauted animal flesh, and some wartcaps (2 varieties) helped balanced the table. Of course, a little wrapped sugar for the beasties.

Only 18 yelling, screaming beasties--nieces and nephews-- who came about 7 and went home about about 10PM. A few adults to help tame the beasties.

No photos, though.

And just fyi, I have written more than 11,000 words since 11/1 for NaNoWriMo. :-) (wrapped sugar helps with that too!)
