I am officially the world's greatest procrastinator! I have started numerous blog posts and always seem to get side tracked by a couple of busy little boys. Since this blog has basically become somewhat of a family journal, I vowed that this week I'd finally complete all my posts and finally get them up here - so here goes ...
Halloween has always been a fun time of year, but I have to say that as Zach gets older it has become all the more exciting! Zach loves to paint and was absolutely thrilled when I told him he could help paint the pumpkin. We used black chalkboard paint so we could write a Halloween countdown '5 days til Halloween', etc.
A week ago I was craving sugar cookies so we invited some friends over to help decorate and eat some.
Zach didn't quite understand the concept of decorating cookies as he would repeatedly spread some icing on the cookie and then lick it all off. He never ate a single cookie. Mmmmm ... icing!!! We experienced quite the sugar high at the Corie house that day!
Thanks to my latest addiction that is 'PINTEREST', I have found so many fun ideas for Halloween. I thought it would be fun to try a few things out and throw a little party for Zach and some of his friends.
Here are a few things I put together:
Floating Frozen Hand
Ghostly Cheese Strings
And here's a few pictures of all the kiddos all dressed up. Too cute!!!
The night before Halloween we got together with Brian and Lanise to carve pumpkins. Zach was enthralled by the whole experience!
He helped me sort through the pumpkin 'guts' to pick out the seeds for a later snack.
Blake even dressed up for the occasion.
We had to take it outside and light it up for Zach. It was hilarious to see how excited he was!
And the finished product ...
Here's my little guys ready to go trick-or-treating.
We just took them to Mark's parents and grandparents and some of our neighbours.
Zach was just starting to catch onto the idea of trick-or-treating when we headed home. I already can't wait for next year!! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!
