Halloween has never been one of my favorite holidays, but the older my children get the more fun I’m realizing it can be. I love celebrating smaller holidays like St. Patrick’s Day, so why not have a bunch of fun with Halloween too? This year instead of just having a family dinner we threw a little party to share the fun!
Earlier in the day the boys got a couple of cards in the mail, which was very exciting!
All set up for the party!
Do you know how hard it is to find Halloween themed recipes for healthy food? It’s nearly impossible! Everything out there is for awesome looking desserts. And since I’m hoping to lose a little weight this week I was trying to avoid the temptation. Spooky ghost cupcakes and black licorice looked festive, but didn’t tempt me, which was good.
Leftover candy corn cookies, pumpkin seeds, and candy corn pumpkins. Which are actually really good. I never realized how much I liked candy corn until this year.
Pumpkin vomiting guacamole.
Pumpkin veggie tray. I probably could have done a little more with this, but it was the last thing I made and I was running out of steam.
My favorite food of the night (and a dessert I couldn’t avoid) – oreo truffle monsters. Delicious.
Buffalo chicken intestines.
Okay, nothing scary about these, just mini grilled cheese sandwiches for people who didn’t like buffalo chicken.
You can’t tell in the picture, but there are gummy worms frozen in the ice cubes. Scary! Or just gross.
Taking a break to read some Halloween books with Aunt Melissa.
Uh oh, somebody gave Caden a sword!
And this is how we spent the rest of the night. 🙂
