Halloween Recap

I hope you all had a great Halloween! We had a fun day with lot of food and friends!

I dressed up like Medusa, which is sort of ironic since snakes are my worst fear.

I tried to make the edible graveyard that I had posted earlier on here. It didn't come out as well as I had hoped, but it still tasted good. Turns out getting little olive eyes and mouths into an egg-not so easy! Looks and magazine photos can be deceiving.

I really liked the ghost cake idea that I got from Martha Stewart. We hated to cut it!

Livi, Kaylin, me and Adrienne. I didn't get a picture of Kaylin's mom and dad, but they were dressed up really cute. Our little ladybug was celebrating her first Halloween!

Gabe looks like he is taking Barkley and I hostage!
Unfortunately we didn't have as many trick or treaters as usual, meaning unfortunately I have tons of candy left to eat! Good for my eyes, not for my thighs! ;) I guess since Halloween was on a Saturday more parents had parties of their own, because our trick or treaters were only about a third of the usual amount. We had a few and then a few of the too cool for school kids. You know the type, the ones who throw on Mickey Mouse ears from a trip to Disneyworld and then just shove a trash bag at you. They are above uttering the words "Trick or Treat". I feel so old when I think that back when I was a kid I always said "Trick or Treat" and "Thank you".
What did you all dress up as?

Thank you Angela! The edible graveyard was so good, thanks to my hubby's guacamole. It is the best ever! :)

Looks like a fun Halloween and I love the cake and the edible graveyard! So cute! Your Halloween sounds like the Halloween we had too - not many trick-or-treaters and lots of leftover candy!

Happy Banyan-Thank you! I know. I don't know what was up with the lack of trick-or-treaters this year!
