Our Sunday dessert were Candy Corn Cupcakes which we whipped up out of the box of coconut cake. The lighting is terrible and somone pointed out on FB that they look radioactive! They were yummy, though. Everyone thought the orange-flavored buttercream was genius!
I post this bad picture, of cupcake and Katie, because I want you to see it and her black fingernails with spiderwebs. She's so creative!
Pip went out as Mojo Jojo from the Powerpuff Girls. He made his hat out of posterboard and duck tape (white and silver). The cape is an old, purple, crushed velvet maternity top that I turned into a cape. I don't know why it came out royal blue in the photo!
The pumpkin: They did a great job on the creative aspect, not to mention the execution. Katie thinks the little pumpkin being eaten looks bored, not scared.
Meg went as Bubbles from the Powerpuff Girls. Her BFF went as the one in green, whose name slips my mind. I made both of their costumes, and I wanted to make a mask of the big eyeballs, but they weren't into it. So they were very simple. Fine by me!
Pip and his cohort went to every house in the neighborhood, as usual. He even dropped off his first pillowcase halfway through and pick up another! Meg had about half as much, most of which she put in the "Do Not Like" pile. :-)
We made up a few "movie theater bags" for special events, and I'll let them eat it at certain times for a couple of days, and then we'll get rid of the rest. Thank God the days of 4-5 kids trick-or-treating are over! I remember one year with a laundry basket full of candy!
Now, it's on to the real feast: All Saints Day! I was running around, printing, laminating, and generally planning party games yesterday. Let's pray that we have all we need! I'm very thankful for all those wonderful bloggers that post their pics and their ideas every year!
