We are having fun getting ready for Halloween at our house. We put all of our Halloween decorations up on September 30th. Abby has been doing lots of spooky art projects in school and they are fun to decorate our house with too! The girls had lots of fun figuring out what costumes they wanted this year. Leah decided about a month ago that she wanted to be a butterfly, but Abby had a really hard time deciding and finally decided last week to be a pink pirate. Her school is year-round and she goes off track tomorrow, so today is her school party. I took a picture of her today before we left for school. Isn’t she the cutest pirate ever?
I’m not much of a cook…I don’t like to eat a lot of kinds of food and I don’t like to cook them either. I should be better, but lucky for me, Jess loves me anyway! I do like baking yummy treats though. Last January I found a blog that I LOVE. Bakerella has so many fun treats on her blog, but her most popular items are cupcake pops. You make a cake, put it in a food processor so you have really fine crumbs, mix it with a can of frosting, roll it into balls, then stick it on a lollipop stick and dip it in chocolate. They are SO cute. I’ve made them a few different times and decided last week to make a variation of them…they are cupcake bites. She made some awesome Halloween ones…I’m not nearly as talented, but I still think mine are cute. They take a lot of work, but I love making them! The girls helped me by putting on the sprinkles…didn’t they do a great job?
