A Scooby Halloween

We would like to wish a very Happy Birthday to Aunt E today! We love you!

Scooby and the Gang was back in action last Friday night for Halloween, and luckily, none of us was sick this year. It was actually Rory’s first time trick-or-treating, and he did great.


Riley had a half day of school on account of parent teacher conferences that afternoon. They had a party in their classroom and went trick-or-treating in the school office during the few hours they were there that morning. Riley said he ate candy, cookies, and donut holes. Fantastic. I also made a cute little treat for his class: spider suckers!

We went to lunch at Velvet Cactus with Nola, Nopsi, and QP then back home so the boys could nap. Kenny and I went to our conference with Ms. Amelie that afternoon (more on that later) while Nola stayed with the boys. We came straight home and started preparing to go to Kelli and Steve’s for their annual Halloween party.

I made taco dip to share with everyone and decided to give these a try as the kids’ treat. I think they turned out really cute. And they were pretty easy to make. I’ll have to ask Riley if he’ll give me a bite of his so I can actually taste one.


We were some of the first to arrive at the party, and Riley immediately ran off with Jack to the playroom. Our other friends started showing up, Rory decided he wanted to eat almost all of the strawberries on the table, and the kids were itching to get out and collect their candy. So off we went.

The weather was actually quite chilly this year, and the wind was cah-razy. Not great for Daphne’s hair, but c’est la vie. The kids had a great time running from house to house, and I got LOTS of steps in (16.5K for the day!)









Rory was SO cute going up to a few of the houses, firmly holding his treat bag and holding it out for candy. I was so impressed.

Once we got back to the house, the kids went through their loot and then we all went into the garage for games. Kelli and Steve had set up lots of fun stuff, including a craft station, a candy corn beanbag toss, bobbing for donuts, and multiple spooky touch-and-feel boxes. There was a human heart (a peeled tomato), guts (noodles with canola oil), roaches (packing peanuts blasted with an air compressor), witch ears (dried apricots), and much more. Very cool.





The night was fun as always, and it was nice not to have to get Riley up for school the next day. Maybe next year Rory will let us stay even later!



Thanks so much, Kelli and Steve, for a great party. You sure know how to outdo yourselves year after year!
