Trick or Treat!!!

What could be more fun for kids than dressing up, and getting candy with friends? My kids and I had a blast this year.  Travis went out with a couple of friends from school, the girls and I went with one of their friends, and Tyler doesn’t go trick or treating anymore, but helps hand out candy for us. Here we are all dressed up and ready for fun…well, except for me. I am really in costume the entire year, and on Halloween, I can reveal my true self! 🙂


A spunky witch!

A Gothic Empress!

Harry Potter!

Any guesses? He is a “cereal killer”

Halloween Brownies!

One of the kids favorite parts of any holiday are the parties at school. We try to send in goodies with them. This year Daylyn took the Marshmallow Mummies that we made earlier, and Allison wanted to bring brownies. I am sure that many other busy moms out there know that helping our children make things takes more time than just simply making it ourselves, but in my quest to have and create more memories with my kids, I thought it would be fun to have her help me make them. She was thrilled.

  1. Read instructions
  2. Pour brownie mix into bowl.
  3. Crack and add eggs.
  4. add water and oil
  5. stir, stir, stir!

  6. Pour the batter into pan and bake. While brownies are baking, run upstairs and get dressed for school!
  7. Let brownies cool and frost with orange frosting of course
  8. The big decision, what sprinkles to use? (I have a sprinkle addiction, so there is normally more than one choice available. LOL!)
  9. Sprinkle away!
  10. Smile, and look what you did. 🙂

Halloween Fun

Friday night, our Primary had a Halloween Carnival for our kids. I know my kids had fun, especially the girls. The boys had fun too, they got to scare kids in the Haunted Alley. I took some fun pictures of the girls that night. I plan on taking some more pictures tonight as well of the boys. 🙂

A few times a year, I get to play in the kitchen and make treats that my kids just love. This is a new treat this year inspired by a picture in a magazine that I saw at my friends house, thanks Jan! They are fun and easy to make, in fact, we even had our young women make them at our Harvest party. 🙂

What you need to make these:

  • bag of marshmallows
  • big round sprinkles
  • white chocolate
  • sucker sticks (I get mine from Joanns)
  • styrofoam
  • small bags to put them in after

1. Melt white chocolate. I use a sugar dish, and melt the white chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals until it is done, stirring each time. I then place the sugar dish on a candle warmer to keep the chocolate warm.

2.Take Marshmallow, sucker stick, and dip end of stick into melted white chocolate, and push into marshmallow. Set on wax paper to let white chocolate harden.

3. Once you are done inserting all the sticks into the marshmallows, you will dip the entire marshmallow in white chocolate.

4. Once marshmallow is covered in chocolate, place 2 round sprinkles on the marshmallow to make the eyes. (You can also just put sprinkles all over the marshmallow as well, very cute!)

5. Place mummy into styrofoam to the chocolate can set.

6. Once chocolate has hardened, Dip a fork into the white chocolate and use that to drizzle white chocolate over the marshmallow to create the look of a mummy.

7. Set mummies back in the styrofoam to set. Once the chocolate has set again, place your mummies into a small bag and tie with a twist or ribbon. Aren’t they cute! Now present them to your kids and enjoy their reaction, or for a fun family night, have them help make them!
