My 3 Monsters: All Hallow's Eve

All Hallow's Eve

Good times were had by all this Halloween. I had the most fun I've had in years decking out my trunk for the annual Trunk-or-Treat at church Friday evening.
My utter lack of photography skill makes it difficult to appreciate how fun it really was. The chandelier was my very favorite part. It was the perfect finishing touch, in my humble opinion. I won a box of instant hot cocoa for my troubles. Nice.
I also enjoyed how the white painted pumpkins turned out. Sis carved the one next to them that says boo. Clever, huh?
She was the cutest little Dorothy you've ever seen. Her complete bliss in that costume made all the sewing and fitting and re-sewing worthwhile.
The boys were a little bit less demanding this year. We found this cool black cloaks at a thrift shop and that's all they wanted to wear. No skeleton face make-up. Nothing. D did carry a light saber -- he was Darth Sidious. Not up to my usual costume designing standards, but whatever. They had fun and that's all that matters.
We had a lovely meal of Monster Sandwiches and Goblin Juice to kick off Saturday evening's festivities.
Looks delicious, no?
OK, for the record, I CAN cook real, truly delicious food when I want to. For our Halloween breakfast I made Pumpkin Pancakes with Homemade Cinnamon Vanilla Syrup. Breakfast "to die for" . . . such a perfect way to start off a spooky day!

Now we're up to our eyeballs in candy, the little monsters are bouncing off the walls, and Cass has found her newest love in life -- Caramel Apple Candy Corn. They happen to be my favorite, too, and I may or may not be her supplier. So, sue me. She deserves some fun, too.


  1. Looks festive and fabulous. LOVE the jars with the vintage labels. Did you buy them like that or print them off?

  2. My, but that Dorothy looks exactly like someone I knew in the dorms freshman year. She had a roommate named Cathy. Sis sure is growing up!

    Very impressive trunk-or-treat decorating! I would totally hang out at your trunk even if you didn't have candy. It's that good.

  3. Kristen, I downloaded those fun labels at and printed them out. Cool, huh?

    You and Jeff went all out in the costume department this year! Most impressive.

  4. Looks like a fabulous time & I loved the Dorothy costume. Boys just don't get into dressing up at that's all about the candy!


Thanks for leaving a comment. I try to respond to every one, even if it takes me a little while!
