It's getting Halloweenie around here...

The costumes have been broken in... The decorations have been up for weeks... The candy has been bought (and broken into)... So it was only fitting that we themed the last Monday family home evening before Halloween around the anticipated festivities. Our dinner was Mr. Bones, our edible skeleton with breadstick bones, spaghetti intestines, and veggie head and hands and feet. He sure was tasty and the kids couldn't stop laughing about the parts they were eating. Thanks for the idea Mandi- you always do the cutest stuff.



Next we carved our pumpkins. I have learned my lesson from years past and srape out the pumpkins during the day so they are ready to go when we get to carving. The kids picked out the design they wanted and Jeremy and I did the knofe work. Gavin wanted a really scary face, and then freaked out when we turned the lights off.

Mason wanted a part of those pumpkins too! Then we made doughnuts with chocolate icing and sprinkles- and ate more than we should...

Halloween is coming! Boo!

That little skeleton man is so cute!
Mason sitting in a pumpkin makes me happy.
Your boys decorating donuts is classic.
You are a fantastically (word?!) fun mom!

Wow! You went ALL out! How cute are you?! What a fun (& busy) evening; I would have been able to do ONE of those things in an evening, if we were lucky! LOVE the pic of Mason in the pumpkin - he's a doll (well, they all are!)

You made doughnuts? Give me the recipe! Mason looks so cute. That must have been a large pumpkin.

I'm so glad you are documenting these things to show your kids all the great things you've done as a mom! Pull these pictures out when they start saying, "We never do anything fun!"

I love Mason in the pumpkin! He's such a cutie! And I can't believe how much Cameron is looking like Jeremy-esp in that picture with Mr. Skeleton's head. Wow. I definitely think Mason is favoring you and Gav's has a good mix of both of you! Just my opinion. You guys have a precious famiy.
