Halloween 2013

I love Halloween. It's one of my favorite holidays. I love making costumes, and making dinner to gross out my kids. This year we had...

 Hannah as Belle from Beauty and the Beast

 Lyra as a 50's gal (the sad part is that she found that skirt at my mom's house. I made and wore it to my best friend's Sweet 16 party when I was 15!)

 Seth as Dr. Who (Eleventh Doctor, in case you cared)

 And Pyper went as the Lady of the Wood from Lord of the Rings. 

Dinner didn't disappoint.  I made a brain with crackers (it was just shrimp dip!), earwax q-tips (marshmallows with butterscotch then stuck on sucker sticks), Zombie hands (meatloaf in hand shapes and mashed potatoes), and Ghoul's eyes (sausage balls with olives and pepperonis), and blood punch (juice with ginger ale and pureed berries). It served it's purpose and grossed us all out! But it was actually pretty tasty also!
