Did I scare you???

Today is a fun day in the Hunt Household!!! We have such a good time on Halloween!! I used to hate to trick or treat as a kid...had a problem with knocking on people's doors and asking them to give me candy...just weird. I used to shove my younger brother, Jerry, in front of me and make him say 'trick or treat'. But Mark loves halloween and so do my kids so that changed after I was able to be on the other side of the door!!! Now it's like a national holiday at our house. We decorate, carve pumpkins, stuff candy treat bags, and plan costumes. This year a friend had us over for Pumpkin Day!! We went over to their house and carved our pumpkins and of course ate!!! We also worked on making decorations. I bought some Martha Stewart bones(at Ruban Rouge)...not Martha Stewart's bones...that came in a glitter kit. AWESOME!!! The kit comes with 12 bones and 2 skulls, glitter (very fine glitter), and a bottle of white glue with an applicator. I had the kids ditch the glue brush and rub the bones with the glue and then moved to modpodge - put the glitter in empty page holder(your clear plastic brand Ruban Rouge gives you to carry your 12x12 papters in), threw in the bone and had the kids scrunch up the bag and then shake. Did a nice clean job. All was well until Kali (8yrs-old) decided to blow INTO the opened bag of glitter with her face right at the opening...haven't looked at the pix yet to see if the glitter shows up...of course, being the scrapbooker I am, I yelled to Mark, "Get the camera! Get the camera!" and wouldn't let her wash off until he got a shot of her. Does that make me a bad gma? No! That makes me a good would have been better if he had been filiming when it actually occured. Oh, well. Used the stamps to decorate our goodie Peyton got orange paint on his back is still a mystery. But, it was a lot of fun! Peyton will be a vampire! Kali is going as a soccer player. Jordyn isn't coming over...she's staying with Mom. Morgan will be the sumo wrestler again. And I'll be a worn out costume necessary!!

Dinner is planned and made already...3 pans of ziti for the 15-20 that will eat with us tonight. Someone is bringing an Olive Garden salad and 4 dozen breadstick!! Yeah! And no dessert tonight as candy is the food of choice.

Can't wait for the little gobblins to show up tonight!! I'll post pix tomorrow!!!

Beware of things that go bump in the night!!
HAVE A GREAT TIME!!!! ...and....
