Is it really October 31st?
Wow! I have been quiet on the blog over the past few weeks due to.. well, let’s just say due to the month of October. LOL! I love October, it is just a busy month with all of the fun and exciting events happening. Teaching is also super busy in October because we have lots of fun things happening at school and it is the end of the first nine weeks! With that, comes a lot of extra work. Oh.. and grad school.. ahh! The middle of the semester is intense. Anyway, I am back!!!! I have missed blogging so much these past few weeks.
I am super giddy and excited right now! I feel like a kid on Halloween. It is such a fun holiday. Tonight, Harry and I will go to dinner to celebrate the fact that we got engaged on this day 3 years ago!
Halloween just feels so magical! You just never know what you could get asked in the rain on Halloween night!
What are your plans for Halloween?!
Do you need a last minute treat idea?
How cute are these rice krispy treats by Mix and Match Mama Recipes?!
3 tablespoons butter
5 cups mini marshmallows
orange food coloring
6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
mini Tootsie Rolls to use as the stems (about 12)
M&Ms and Candy Corn for the Jack-o-lantern face
Vanilla frosting for your “glue”
In a microwavable bowl, melt your butter (about 60 seconds or so). Once melted, add in your marshmallows and coat with melted butter. Microwave another minute and a half or so until marshmallows are melted. Remove from microwave and immediately add in your orange food coloring. Stir until incorporated. Pour over cereal.
Once your mixture has cooled a bit, rub a little butter on both of your hands and roll the cereal into balls. Unroll a mini Tootsie Roll and bend it just a bit into a stem. Stick your stem on top of your pumpkin. Using your frosting as glue, add your eyes and nose to the front of each pumpkin.
Need a last minute costume?
Harry and I were Danny & Sandy this year — such easy costumes and so fun!
We went to my aunt and uncle’s house for a Halloween party, Saturday night! It was so fun. I grew up, going to their house for Halloween parties each year and we always have the best time. It involved good food, good company, good costumes, and a spooktacular haunted trail. My aunt and uncle’s house is in the sticks.. aka the woods! They created the best haunted trail I’ve ever seen. They should charge people to use it, it’s that scary lol!
I’m telling you, there is just something about Halloween magic in the air that makes everything so fun and makes me feel like a kid again!
And after midnight.. well..
LOL!! I’m kidding, no.. not really!
Happy Halloween Everyone!
Have a spooktacular day!
