I am so excited about Halloween this year that I could eat a bag of candy corn! I have loved Halloween my entire life and now to celebrate with Henry, it makes it even better.
The other night I found the Halloween skit we did in Mrs. Ciesla's 2nd grade, The Littlest Pumpkin! Karen Gibson had the lead role of the girl and I was a pumpkin in the patch. I can still remember standing in the front of the class room doing the skit for our parents at the Halloween party.
A few weeks ago we got a flyer from Henry's school saying there was going to be a parade. I squeeled in delight. I have been waiting a long time for this parade. Charlie called me nuts but could sense my excitement. Then yesterday, there was a sign up for a party after the parade in Henry's room, I squeeled again! A parade and a party - what fun!
My mind was spinning of what I could make. I signed us up for treats but didn't write down what we would bring. I was thinking of spider web cupcakes and had it planned out in my head. Then I went back this morning and someone else was bringing cupcakes, darn it, I missed my chance!
I headed over to Target trying to figure out what else I could make. I came across these ghost baking cups. I thought I could do something with this. Well, then they showed Jell-O ghosts and I got all excited about making orange Jell-O ghosts! We may have made these in college, just with some other ingrediants ;) I aslo picked up a skeleton platter to display my ghosts on.
I just think Halloween is the best way to kick off the whole holiday season. It really brings out the child in everyone!
