Halloween Fun

Last night, we had a little halloween party for the neighborhood kids. It really ended up being a lot of fun for them, I think! Do you like my "batty" headband? I know it's hard to see in the picture, but I thought it was festive! Here's the kitchen decorations...now you know I don't like spiders, but this big one hanging from the ceiling was a must for halloween spirit!

This recipe for caramel corn puffs is so easy...and really tasty! Better than caramel corn, because no hulls get stuck in your teeth!
Fun little spiders made of Ritz crackers, peanut butter, and pretzel sticks. Those are raisins for the eyes...
The kids headed to the basement to decorate their little pumpkins...what fun! We also played musical chairs, Pin the Mouth on the Mummy, and had a pumpkin hula-hoop toss.
Here's little Reagan with her finished pumpkin. She looks happy, wouldn't you say? What a cutie patootie!And here's Ms. Shea...modeling her newly won prize after a harrowing game of musical chairs...
Happy Halloween everyone!!

Looks like a great party! You are so ambitious and creative. The spider decoration is crazy! I love it! And the spider snacks are too cute. What kid wouldn't love to come to a party at your house?

Terri - Thanks! I must admit, we had a really fun time!

Kenady - Definitely do one! Halloween is so fun...and no presents to buy! Glad you liked my headband...I was feeling a bit batty! LOL!

Jenelle - Yes, of course! We are headed first to a pizza party at a friend's house and then out to do a few streets in their neighborhood before hitting the lake. It will be a LOT of walking!
