Halloween 2013

**I had a few people ask for the yearly Halloween post, especially since not everyone is on Facebook and because I didn't post our fun lunches!  I get a lot of guilt sad emails from family and friends:)

Breakfast was "Ghost Pancakes".  Ghosts say "Ooooooooooooooooo!"  For the record, Aubrey only at the top half of each ghost, which contained the three chocolate chips.
We also had "Candy Corn Fruit Parfaits".  Bottom layer of pineapple, then peaches, then homemade whip cream.  Big hit with all!
 Lunch:  Witch Fingers (cheese sticks with green pepper fingernails)
Mummies (hot dogs wrapped in dough with mustard eyes)
Pumpkins (mandarin oranges.....I just used a sharpie to draw a face)
Kids also got snack mix: Ghost Poop (marshmallows), Witch Warts (chocolate covered raisins) and Monster Scabs (Chex Cereal).

Dinner was boring....we had chili.  Good, healthy and filling before we went out trick or treating.

Theme:  Despicable Me
 Gru is the main character who adopts three girls, Margo, Agnes and Edith
Our Version:  Edith (Kate), Margo (Ella), Gru (Woody), Agnes (Emelia)
A Minion (Aubrey), Edith (Kate), Margo (Ella), Gru (Woody), Agnes (Emelia) and
Dr. Nafario
Dr. Nafario and the Minions

Gru and Vector battling it out!
In the movie the little girls deliver cookies to Vector in a wagon (the minion was extra here:) and Agnes asks him why he is wearing pajamas.  Pretty funny!
In the movie Agnes likes Unicorns.  Our Agnes preffered pushing pumpkins around.
 Our little trick or treater was AWESOME!  She understood the dressing up thing and the getting treats thing!  Walked a good three blocks and did it all herself.  She signed and spoke "Trick or Treat" at each house.  Same for Thank You and Your Welcome!   So proud of her!
