Halloween Fun

Since she was old enough to listen to and understand stories, Annabeth has been obessed with fairy tales. She especially likes to hear the parts about the witches - even though she is terribly afraid of them. It is a kind of morbid fascination with all things evil. A few times, when I noticed she was far too quiet, I discovered her in the bathroom "making potions." They consist of toothpaste and soap mixed together with water. This year, I thought it would be fun to have a witch party and let her make a real "potion." We invited some friends over and let everyone decorate witch hats (spray painted party hats). We played "Pass the broom" and "pin the wart on the witch.". We couldn't ask for a cuter bunch of kiddos to have as friends.

Couldn't get everyone looking at the camera at the same time.
Decorating our witch hat cookies. Glad we did this outside since things got messy. =)
Annabeth, Tava, and Weston lookin so darn cute.
We mixed sprite (swamp water), Frozen lemonade (slime), and pineapple juice (monster juice) together to make a yummy "brew." The kids all threw in ice cubes with frozen spiders and worms inside. Then we added a genuine, green, frozen monster hand! Actually - I really liked this punch. One of my favorites - even though it was green.
Annabeth and Camilla before our ward trunk-or-treat. She loves to hold her sister. I can never get over how sweet natured she has always been with Camilla. She never really shows any jealousy towards her - not yet anyway - and always tries to make her smile. Such a great big sister. Couldn't ask for sweeter girls!
