Someone crawled into bed with me at 4:00 a.m. on the morning of October 31 because she was too excited to sleep. And then around 5:00 a.m., another little someone crawled into bed with me! This necessitated me to move the first little one back to her own bed–which was a mistake, since she woke up and never went back to sleep.
We managed to stay in bed until 6:30, with me drifting in and out of sleep, knowing that the day ahead would be a long one. While the girls were at school having their Halloween parties, I was getting ready for a party at our house after school. Lily’s school had a noon dismissal and trick-or-treating didn’t start until 3:00, so I thought it would be nice to have some of their friends over.
You know how October has been a crafty month for me? I decided to get “crafty” with some Halloween food! I made mummy hot dogs and cheese stick bloody fingers. I made blood punch and a little red pepper jack o’ lantern with veggie dip inside. Unfortunately, I didn’t take pictures of all the food I made! You will have to trust me when I say it looked really cute (or gruesome, depending on how you look at it!).
After the party, we went trick-or-treating with some of Lily and Emmy’s friends. They both dressed up as Rapunzel. A couple of people were confused by Lily’s frying pan, but if you’ve seen the movie Tangled, you would know that Rapunzel used it like a weapon against “ruffians and thieves”.
|Oh, Rapunzel! Let down your hair!|
It was the perfect fall day, a little on the cool side, but no rain! The girls had a wonderful Halloween. So wonderful, in fact, that Emmy woke up on Tuesday morning and asked me if we could go trick-or-treating again.
This mommy is thankful we have to wait a whole ‘nother year ’til Hallowe’en comes around again!
Head on over to Sprite’s Keeper for more entries in the Spooooky Cycle! (I think I added tooooo many o’s!)

That's awesome! They look wonderful and the frying pan is a perfect touch. We saw a few Rapunzel's at Sprite's school when we went for the Fall Festival and every single time Sprite saw one, she lamented that she wanted to be Rapunzel too. I think I know what we're doing next year. :-)You're linked!
Sounds perfect except for the early morning! Yes the frying pan is a must. I love the movie and watch it often. Believe me if I had grandchildren they would enjoy this grandma.
Okay, the frying pan totally makes the costume. What a fantastic use of purple. And we make the mummy dogs too, they're always a hit. You're already on day 4! Keep up the momentum! Only 26 days to go. And sleep is so deliciously tempting too. 😉
NaBloPoMo's kickoff…I want to thank you for your comment today at <a href="http://thebloggingvalley.wordpress.comhttp://thebloggingvalley.wordpress.com<br />Jackie PaulsonI know that I keep notebooks of all sizes in all important areas just for writing ideas too…I think I am obsessed. And I have Binders for each family member for remembering things or I put clear sheets in it to put notes, or to remember something.
Ha! Love the frying pan. Xander also keeps asking me if it's Hallowe'en again yet.
