Starting Early

The other day, Monique wanted to watch videos of the Jonas Brothers on YouTube. Yes, I know what you are thinking. She is pretty young to even care, but she does. She loves those boys. I'm not sure if it's because of Bella or not, but she thinks they are ceeeeeee-ute! Anyway, as we were sitting here watching the Jonas Brothers, Olivia became really excited and decided she needed a kiss from those cute Brothers. Luckily, my camera was close at hand and I was able to snap this priceless picture.
That baby kills me!

Every year, we have our traditional HALLOWEEN FEAST. The kids think it's really fun, and I get to do crazy things with food. We usually have our feast the Sunday before Halloween, but Monique had the stomach flu that day, and didn't really feel like eating. So, we had our feast the Sunday after Halloween. This actually worked out better, because Grandma was able to enjoy our tradition with us. This year I decided to have a little more fun. We made Jack-0-lantern hats for each of us to wear, and I covered the table with paper, and we all made a Halloween tablecloth. Everyone was really creative, and had a great time drawing all over the table. It was tons of fun, and the kids did a fantastic job.

What's on the Menu?

Jack-o Patties
Monster Mashed Potatoes with Orange Worms
Gooey Fingers
Witches Bread
Blood to Drink

I think Izabella's trying to make the same face as her hat!

Monique did not want to share markers with Olivia.
See how she's protecting her territory from little sneaky fingers.

Of course, Kirk couldn't just draw ghosts, pumpkins and witches.
No, he had to draw psycho Santa on a motorcycle. He's so strange.

Our table setting. We used our hats as place cards to know where everyone was going to sit.
We had black paper for place mats, and I pulled out my nice white dishes and goblets
to make it extra special.

This is our creepy dinner.
I'm not very good at taking pictures of food.
One of these days, I'll get it right. You get the idea though.
