This week the theme over at
was Halloween & Silence
This worked out nicely since I am so behind & haven't shared
any Halloween pictures yet.
This is one of my favorite shots of the girls.
I love how they are just a little blurry.
They were done with posing for the camera
& all about trick or treating!
This is truly what silence looks like in my house.
The only picture I got of all 3 kids.
Matthew went out with his friends this year.
Our "Mummy" dinner.
English muffin pizzas & bread stick wrapped hot dogs.
With fun jello for dessert.
Lime jello with gummy worms & bugs.
Love this idea that I got from
She had the coolest containers for hers,
but I thought my Partylite mini barrel jars ended up cute too.
They kinda looked like witch cauldrons.
Marissa really really enjoyed handing out the candy this year.
I was SO ready to turn the lights out at 8.
She insisted on leaving them on longer & taking care of it.
Around 8:45 she was finally done too.
And finally a few pictures of our decorations.
I almost bought some pom pom spiders at a gift shop.
Matt took one look at them & said you can make those.
I made a bunch of them & they ended up all over the house.
The cats like pom poms & thought they were great new toys.
The Frankenstein that Maddie made in 1st grade.
This was the one decoration she asked about & got so excited
once he was back in his spot.
Thankfully I was able to finish my Spooky blocks before Halloween.
I love how they turned out!
Matt is usually in charge of the outside of the house.
This year he just wasn't into it, so I put up just a few things.
The ghost was a big hit with the kids this year.
It moved & made creepy noises. It didn't have any lights
so I taped a battery tealight under him & it lit him up fabulously.
