Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! We've been gearing up to celebrate this spooky day for the past few weeks. Gabs is dressed as an ice cream sundae. As for Nate he's changed his mind about his costume a million and a half times but finally settled on a veterinarian.

Both kiddos are pretty darn cute but the hat for Gab's costume is just so adorable!

To celebrate this spooky holiday we've had several projects. One project were these Rice Krispie Treat ghosts. Simply follow the recipe on the box for Rice Krispie Treats. When cooked spread evenly onto a jelly roll pan sprayed with cooking spray or lined with a silicone baking sheet. When the mixture has cooled take a ghost cookie cutter and spray with cooking spray then cut away! We added mini chocolate chips for the eyes and mouth.

Our second project were these cute spider sandwiches. They were super simple and we've made them several times. Just make a Ritz cracker sandwich with a nut butter, stick pretzel sticks in between the crackers for the legs and affix a couple of raisins on top with more nut butter. This has been a favorite snack the past week.

Boo! The last project was one Jim did with the kids. They made this door monster. I love the imagination and whimsy that comes along with Halloween!
Wishing you all a very safe and Happy Halloween!
