We always enjoy Halloween celebrations here! We started the week by pumpkin carving, all of the children enjoy it, even Bailey. I resisted the urge to take over, the perfectionist in me can't help herself normally, but this time I sat with a cuppa and just watched only helping if I was asked. The actual carving unnerves me, sharp knives aarrgghhh but they all did a really good job and everyone still has all their fingers :-D Great fun was had and I love all the smiley faces!
As we had invited a few friends over the girls wanted to make some party food. First up they made wiggly worm jelly. They had never made jelly before and really, REALLY, enjoyed cutting up the cubes and dissolving them in hot water.
We were so busy that I never took any photographs of the children in their costumes, that's the first year I have ever forgot. I planned on taking photo's of them with their friends when they came back in from trick or treating but thanks to the good old British weather, it rained so heavily that they all looked like drwoned rats when they got back home. I'd like to say I didn't laugh but they did all look very funny with Alice Cooper style face paints running down their faces. After towel drying them all and making a batch of hot chocolates to warm everyone back up they were all happy again though. They had a great time, which is all that really matters! Happy Halloween
