abra cadabrah.. I'm back.

October 24th

I missed a few days
What happened??
Sorry for the disappearing act
there were a kazillion crazy things going on here in the spoonful house.

It's been quite a scary week filled with
Halloween parties, piano lessons, cooking, deadlines, emergency room visits,  no sleeping, haunted dungeon tours and a house that looks like a few zombies dwell here.

I have so much catching up to do.
Meanwhile,  here are some pictures from the first Halloween party.

since Papa Spoonful and I spent the night before at the emergency room
( Everyone is fine)
Neither one of us got any sleep and things for the party were a little rushed.
I had big plans for the cupcakes and didnt have the time nor the energy to do anything fancy.

I opted for the easy vampire bites.

and random colors

Miss Teen Spoonful was a huge help.
Here she is making some Monster Mouths for the kids.

And I scooped out 10 pumpkins for carving later.

There were lots of seeds to be roasted.


Lots of sweets
and healthy treats


I made some quick mummy dip
by just mixing a dry package of Lipton's veggie soup mix
with some sour cream

I scooped it out on to the platter in a mummy shape
them piped softened cream cheese over it.  

I rushed  things
forgot things
cancelled ideas
and the kids didn't even notice.

They are a great group of kids
and I love having these parties for them.

This year their craft was carving  pumpkins
and they all did a fantastic job.

 I didn't change the color settings on this photo..
It was my camera acting wacky.
the muted faces 
 work out perfectly for a blog shot. 

from this gang to your gang

Happy Halloween Everybody.

Halloween is just a week away
and this week is going to be busy again.
More  party preparations...

I will be catching up with you all this week.
I missed soooo much!!!!!
Have a great tomorrow.
