Halloween recap, pumpkin, candy and yummy eyeballs! :-)

Despite the snow we had a fun Halloween! I made eyeballs with the girls and Jerry for a fun time and a yummy treat!
Simple ingredients....I modified a few things but I found the idea at

This was my delicious example, lol.

Melt white chocolate and dip your favorite donut holes into the chocolate and let harden.

I think the girls did a pretty good job! :-)

Ewwwwww!! LOL

Anyone missing an eyeball?


We also were busy decorating our pumpkins!

She's not afraid to get her hands dirty! ;-)

Snow and pumpkins! Never thought I'd see that combination!

My Sally always watching in the doorway.

My clematis blooming in the snow....

Getting ready for trick or treating.

My beautiful princess!

Trading candy :-)

This was Kathleen's idea to make lunch for Hayley and I, we didn't eat it for lunch :-)

I was proud of her learning to cut up her own strawberries, that's a snack I encourage.

Just overlook the wild hair! LOL

So proud of her :-)

This is what happens when there's a day off school! LOL The American Girl's take over!

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Your pics of the Jack o Lanterns on the porch with the snow as backdrop was so pretty!
Love the girls trading candy. I remember those days!! Love...Love...the American Girls doll party. And who is that behind the granny square afghan? I love it!
Have a great rest of your week!!

I have to admit I love seeing the snow with the pumpkins - I am sure it was a cold night for you guys but so pretty!
Those eyeballs are great - I am going to have to remember those. I have made a lot of fun Halloween food in my day but I have never seen those - Super duper cute!

You guys rocked the pumpkins - I cannot believe how great your girls are - they just dig right in and have so much fun all the time.

So glad you had a happy Halloween!

Stay warm!

Honestly, what's up with those giant Three Musketeer Bars? Next year, I'm TrT-ing in your neighborhood.

So that's where my eyeball is!!

Actually my Princess has been studying the eyeball this week in her Anatomy & Physiology class. (we home school). I've learned waaay more about the eyeball than I really want to know!

I actually thought your eyeballs were made from a marshmallow at first, but your eyeball is much more tasty than a simple marshmallow would be.
