Halloween Party

Halloween Party

We enjoyed our afternoon with some special friends and had a lot of fun!We enjoyed our gruesome treats that I made with Saucy the day before,I added some mini cupcakes too.

The guests made haunted gingerbread houses, played games (the favorite was when I read a story book and everytime I said "Frankenstein" they had to pose with arms up and standing tall, everytime I said "dead ant" they had to lay on the floor with their hands and feet up.) We made glow in the dark ghost goo using this.
(The short instructions are get Glow Away from Michaels. Mix 1 part white glue with 1 part water, and a squirt of the glow away in one container. In another container mix 1 part borax with 6 parts water. Stir the glue mixture into the borax mixture. It will immediately get slimy. Take it out and knead a bit to remove most of the water. Store in a baggie and have fun.)

Special thanks to Miss Saskatoon 1987 and Miss Calgary 1989 who came to help out! You sure did surprise me!!! Better get working on the jacket for Sunday AV!

Pumpkin Pie Blizzard

Moto-Moto took CJ out for a dessert date this evening.
He misses his little girl now that she is in school full time and is trying fit in "dates" with her on the weekends.
I am so lucky to have such a caring man for a husband.
He treats the girls like the princesses that they are!

He brought me home a treat too:

We usually just pick up a little special container of ice cream at the grocery store to enjoy because we are too thrifty to buy ice cream elsewhere. But I have to say I'm glad he brought this for me.
It is too YUMMY!

Halloween Decor & Giveaway

We pulled out the Halloween Countdown on the 1st and have filled it with little treats, prank treats ("eye" bouncy balls, plastic spiders & rats), jokes and special coupons for the girls. CJ has been telling everyone her latest joke:

What do witches use to keep their hair in place while flying?

"Scare spray!"

We made some very easy decorated blocks.

(We've seen these a few places, sorry I don't remember where exactly,
likely some examples on twopeasinabucket.)

Viki saved us her 2x4 scraps when she made her garage.
Painted them up with some acrylic paint,
mod podge on some Halloween scrapbook paper,
cut out some letters to mod podge on top

This "eek" set CJ & CD have created just for you!!
CD says "Mommy 'care (scare) me!"

Leave a comment and we'll give them away on October 17th!

Turkey Fry 2009

We celebrated Thanksgiving with our dear friend
Viki (aka "my wife").
We tried something new with the turkey this year and had our first
It was tasty, Baba and Moto-Moto were picking at the crispy skin while carving it and thought they could just fill their plate with that.

The rest of us enjoyed a few other things:

Garlic Herb Mashed Potatoes
Honey Glazed Garden Carrots
Oriental Salad
Roasted Mixed Veggies
Fried Turkey

CJ helped make a yummy banana chocolate crepe dish AND we had
one of Viki's famous cheesecakes...
Pumpkin Spice Cheesecake with Gingerbread Crumb Crust!

We spent the rest of the evening playing, visiting and being thankful for our great family and wonderful friends! Thanks Viki!
