Halloween Fun

Halloween this year was spent with some of our new friends Andy, Kirsten, Brendan & Christine. We all gathered at the Stearns’ house for dinner together and afterwards we carved pumpkins, decorated cookies and passed out candy to the neighborhood trick-or-treaters.

Here are the jack-o-lantern creations…

…and our decorated cookies! I made the orange “pumpkin” sugar cookies and bought a couple tubes of black icing for decorating.

Another fun project that I had seen on Pinterest and wanted to try was the glow stick monster eyes. I had a handful of toilet paper tubes that I’d been saving for a few weeks and I used an Xacto knife to cut out different eye shapes. Then at our Halloween gathering we snapped some glow sticks {found in the dollar section at Target}, stuck one inside each tube and taped off the ends with blue painters tape. We put them in various places around their front yard so when kids came up to the front door it looked like there were monsters in the bushes!
