With Halloween being a bit different this year we planned to have a Halloween party at home. But first pie for breakfast.
We've been using up those apples from a road side stand in Wisconsin for weeks.
Theo was not into costumes this year and wouldn't put on his Yoda costume. He finally agreed to a cape.
Meadow has been planning for our party for weeks. She made this ghost piñata for the occasion. No idea what's inside.
We weren't sure how trick or treating would go, so we spent the day making chocolates. First up was peanut butter cups.
No family costumes this year. We all kind of did our own thing.
Don't mind if I do get me some chocolate. Definitely my child.
We also made some homemade butterfingers.
This was actually fun to make.
Who knew the classic butterfinger (they were recently reformulated) included corn flakes!
After the candy cooled I made marks into the butterfinger brittle.
While we waited for the butterfingers to cool I pulled all the Halloween books out for reading hour.
And the peanut butter cups were complete.
These were very rich and messy.
I couldn't find any milk chocolate to go with the dark chocolate it's supposed to be mixed with. Bittersweet and dark chocolate made for a decadent chocolate coating.
Soon we had fun size butterfingers that just needed to be dipped.
Then I received a text message from our friends Cayla and Amanda that there was a surprise on our porch.
Our building went all out with the pumpkins this year.
They spoiled our kids with lots of treats and goodies.
We can't wait to hang out with them again someday.
Hopefully not too far off in the future.
The past few years Meadow has done chores to save up money to buy Theo a Christmas present. This year she's planning to get him a lightsaber.
Then it was piñata time.
The kids each took a turn.
But it was too tough.
Meadow had a few surprises inside.
We had cider pulled pork and sweet potato fries before we attempted to go trick or treating.
As it got dark we decided to go for a walk/see if anyone was handing out candy at distance. We were surprised to see almost every house had left candy out on a table.
So we walked around with masks and costumes on and enjoyed a windy walk down Kings Highway. Thanks rich folks!
I loved seeing all the creative displays.
This turned out to be a really great Halloween.
