Spooky-ooky Dinner

To help everybody get into the Halloween spirit, we decided to have a Spooky-ooky dinner. The kids had heard me mention this back at the very beginning of October and started pestering me about it every day, wondering when it was time for our "Pooky-pooky" dinner, as Isaac called it. So, we had it a little early. On the menu:
Bones and Blood

Monster Eyeballs
Monster Toes
Dirt cups with worms And everyone's favorite, Witches Brew

Sareny and Isaac got to add the secret last ingredient to the brew, eyeballs.
The kids totally thought it was the best thing ever, so we pretty much repeated the menu last weekend when we were hosting the babysitting club at our house. Everybody had to have a turn stirring the witches brew and cackling, "Boil, boil!" We also decorated Halloween sugar cookies, and made these really cool "Witch's Finger" pens. I'll have to post some pictures from the cool Halloween crafts we have been keeping busy with lately.

I love all the spooky-ooky foods! I have been seeing so much more Halloween dinner ideas online today, so if you're planning on doing another, just google. You're such a fun Mom. It seems like you're always doing fun stuff like this with those kids. Oh and Isaac's hair...it's long.
