Sarah's Kindergarten Halloween Concert

(Apologize for the blurry picture, but it was the only one that showed her dress)

The witches dress seemed to be a bit bunched inside her tights, I guess that is what happens when 5 year old witches need to go potty before the big performance.

Them's Fighting Words

Last night, Ben and Sarah were in the bathroom brushing their teeth and we overheard the following conversation:

B: Sarah, did you see the fighter fighter at school today?
S: What?
B: The fighter fighter at school today?!
S: What kind of fighter was it?
B: You know! The fire guy!

It must be tough when you don't even speak the same dialect of "kid-ease" that your little sister speaks.

Spooky eats!

I went to the Dollar Store today and discovered these skull and cross bones plates. With our Halloween theme this week, I couldn't resist.

Tonight's dinner was Ghost Pie (Shepherd's Pie with Ghost Shaped Mashed Potatoes)The meal was rounded out with some moldy pears (Pears that I canned with green food coloring)

Now that is love!

Boo to you!

We are enjoying a week of Halloween themed dinners. Tonight we had Witches Brew in a Pumpkin Bowl with Witches Blood to drink.

Then we carved pumpkins... pumpkins that we grew in our garden.

Little Miss Tiny

Tonight, I walked into the room and found Ben reading Little Miss Tiny to Sarah!I Love Little Miss Tiny! All the Little Miss Books are great. In fact, this one was mine when I was young. It wasn't until after they read the book that we all noticed that Sarah was wearing Little Miss Trouble on her wrist band.
