We decided that today was going to be a Happy Halloween, regardless of any old flu bug that might be lingering around our house. Luckily, I feel fine and had the energy to plan and bring off a fun day for my little one.
We decorated the living room…
Set up a refreshment table…
Picked and arranged flowers and made paper lanterns.
This gal is an old friend I met in the Italian Alps.
Today Martina and I were ready for some fun! First off there were flying lessons on her home made besom with Hootie. They are both naturals.
Then we bobbed for apples. Martina was more excited about this than any other thing I planned for today. There was morning apple bobbing and afternoon apple bobbing. I only participated in the morning division.
We made homemade candy apples. Aren’t they beautiful? They look better than they taste.
I thought so, anyway…and no, it’s not the camera, she really is a little bit green. We also made sugar cookies, which is a bit of a trick with demerara sugar and whole wheat flour, but we succeeded and the little ghosts and bats are delicious and coated with orange frosting. Yum-o!
Last night I mentioned to Mark that I think I like Halloween better than Christmas. He told me he’ll remind me of that come mid-December. He’s right. But it’s damn close.
Happy Halloween everyone!
