What's on the Menu?

We had a little Halloween dinner/FHE tonight. On the menu was...

Mini, mummy pizzas.

Individual, seven layer dip and chips.

Punch with gummy worm ice cubes.

Mummy dogs.

Skinny girl cupcakes.

It's a good thing that Halloween food can look a little scary :) Jaden and Hailey helped make all of the food. The pizzas were made with Rhodes rolls, pizza sauce, cheese, and olives. The layered dip was fun in individual cups. (with lids, so easy to keep the leftovers in the fridge) Frozen and thawed gummy worms are pretty slimy! Mummy dogs are hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls- they were "the best hot dogs we've ever had"! Skinny girl cupcakes are made with a cake mix and Sprite zero. The frosting is cool whip and fat free, sugar free vanilla pudding. The kids decorated them. They tasted pretty good, but were a strange texture. Like I said...good thing Halloween food can be a little scary. hehe
After dinner, we played "Don't Eat Frank" and "Halloween Bingo".

Trunk or Treat

I gave out 80 treats in about 10 minutes, then 50 more in about 5 minutes. If you showed up alittle late, it was too bad :)

Since I have allergies to ragweed pollen, this is a problem-
weeds as far as the eye can see. Pollen counts have been in the extreme catagory for most of October so far. It was also interesting, when I was looking at the pollen charts last night, another city in the "extreme" catagory was Goleta, CA. (I was surprised to see it listed on the chart :)

Grandma Duty

I was teasing Ashley today about not doing her "Mommy blogging duty", when I realized that I have been neglecting my "Grandma blogging duty" :)
Sooo... here are a few cute pics.


Mom and MIP

Jaden, Hailey, Papa and MIP


MIP & J & H & (some other baby :)

M & J

and 1 more picture of MIP :) He's getting pretty cute.

The best part about being "the Grandma" is that I can go shut myself in my room whenever I want. And now that Ron is back home- I can shut him in there with me :)

Don't Eat Pete

I found this cute game on pinterest and I just had to copy and paste and blog. I have some kids named Pete that might like this :) Although, it's a game where all you do is eat candy corn. But... I do have a bag of candy corn that needs to be eaten. If you can't find my "Kids" board on pinterest and you want details, let me know.
