What's for dinner: Halloween part 3

I have had so much fun making themed dinners, Kyle might better watch out. I'll be making him eat heart shaped pancakes all through Feb, lol!!! Here are a few more of the creations I have served the boys.

The witches fingers, were a hit! They are basically breadsticks with pepperoni fingernails. I then sliced them in half and stuffed pepperoni and cheese to make a pizza sandwich. But you could make an type of sandwich you like. These go great with a fresh salad.

For halloween, our neighborhood is really packed and they get started early! So we opted for an easy dinner. I made Ham-witches! They were super cute, and tasty!

Now, I guess it's time to start planning Thanksgiving and Christmas themed dinners. Feel free to suggest some if you know of any.

Halloween week:What's for dinner part 2

I can never pass up Holiday themed cinnamon rolls. I can't enjoy them, but the boys sure do! Tyler ate 5 1/2 rolls for breakfast. Now that is a growing boy!!!

Of all, the delicious Halloween foods we've had, I think this was my favorite! Monster mouth tacos are not only super cute, but super tasty too. They were deginitely a hit at our house.

My favorite time of year...

So, just to be clear, Halloween isn't my favorite holiday. But I do love the fall, which is the beginning of "decorating season" as my mom called it. I don't like the scary stuff, but I do have tons of pumpkins around the house and we will carve one tonight for Halloween night. I love being able to celebrate all the little things with the boys and see how excited it makes them. Holidays are always so much more fun when viewed through the eyes of a child. This year, we have a Halloween menu for the whole week leading up to Halloween. The boys have loved coming to the table to see what new creation, or creature, I have come up with for dinner. The first night, we had mummy dogs and pumpkin chilli. The mummy dogs were my favorite. I loved the little eyes peeking out.

The next night, we had creepy crawly macaroni and spider bread. This is just macaroni and cheese, I used the sprial kind, with carrot shreds and sliced up hotdogs. I normally wouldn't serve hot dogs 2 nights in a row, but I made an exception for this meal. The spider bread was a little tricky, but they turned out pretty cute!

Last night, I took it easy and just served ham-witches cut into the shape of pumpkins, with orange cheetos of course!

Busy bees

Kyle and I have been busy little bees! We are currently working on our bathroom makeover. After 10 years of the duckies, I was ready to see them go, lol! We have been looking for a curtain we could agree on for over a year, but we finally found one we both liked. We put a new mirror over the sink and I think that makes the biggest difference. Of course, the new wall color is pretty awesome too!
