Halloween weekend

We don't really do the whole Halloween Trick or Treat thing. But we had a fun time together this weekend. The kids said "This was the best halloween ever".

  • We gave the kids goody bags. 
  • Watched Mars Needs Moms.
  • Went for family walks, kids riding scooters. 
  • Cleaned the house. 
  • Watched some Halloween themed movies. 
  • Painted the girls nails and curled their hair up fancy. 
  • They did a pumpkin craft that I had put on the table in case they were interested. 
  • We went out to dinner on Halloween. My brother went along with us. 
  • They got to try some new foods at dinner they hadn't tried before. 
  • They played dress up (and mess up since now today we need to clean up the mess from yesterday LOL). 
  • Watched Gremlins last night as our Halloween movie together. Everyone would like a Gizmo LOL. 
  • Pumpkin pancakes and pumpkin cheesecake on Halloween
  • Family prayers and talking about the day

Sounds like a great evening.

We passed out candy, watched Pirates of the Caribbean and ate pumpkin pie.

Oooh, Gremlins. I haven't seen that in so long! We had a marathon family Monopoly game and the kids had fun handing out candy to the people who came to the door. I like the goody bags idea that you did. We don't do candy except for TJ's lollypops but putting some other non-candy treats in a bag is a good idea for next year. =)

Oh a Monopoly marathon sounds fun : )

Those TJ LP's are a huge hit here too. Kids love um!
Their red licorice is really good too and nothing funky in it.

I didn't know about the licorice. I'll have to get some next time I'm there. My kids will love a second choice. =)
