October 30th, the day for our Halloween tradition, a craft and Halloween cookies. We were happy that we could have Olivia over to share in the festivities. (I have been meaning to help our her mom, who just had twins, by having Olivia over but we have been sick and then family comes and then we got sick again. Finally we were all better and without visitors, so we could help her out and have Olivia over for the afternoon to give her mom a break) My kids love to make things. This year we made spiders out of styrofoam balls and pipe cleaners. (I forgot to take pictures of this event) After the spiders we decorated Pumpkins and Ghosts. Instead of making the ghosts white, we frosted them green and the pumpkins orange. The kids had a ball decorating and made all kids of creepy and crazy cookie creations. (say that 5 times fast) Taryn even got into the cookie decorating. I thought she would just lick off the icing, but surprisingly she didn't. She took the candy and made some good looking cookies!
And once the cookies were decorated we all tried one, just to make sure they tasted okay. They were YUMMY! That evening it was time to carve pumpkins. Now usually we would have done this long before now, but I was told that if you carve the pumpkins too early here in Tennessee they will mold and go bad. So that is why we are doing it later.

My little Pumpkin Fairy! This year for Halloween Taryn was finally old enough to get the whole dress up thing and I really wanted to dress her up like a princess, but...............she had other ideas. She wanted to be a pumpkin. Really? Okay, I looked all around for a cute pumpkin costume, but to no avail. I have been trying all month to coax her into the whole princess costume theme, but she wasn't hearing it. Finally I found this costume. It even said on it "Pumpkin Fairy." Okay, I can compromise with this. Half pumpkin, half fairy. Works for me and it worked for the munchkin as well.She had to have picture with the scary man in her costume.

Gotta love that big brother who is always hanging out with his little sister.
If it is not all over your face, it isn't good. Obviously this is a YUMMY cupcake!
Happy birthday smiley girl.
