Happy almost Halloween

October 30th

Are you scared yet?
Are you prepared for the ghouls and goblins to come knocking?

You won't believe this
but where I live..
we hardly ever get any trick or treaters.

Yesterday I got a chance to hang out with the 7th graders at Selfies school.
After the kids prayed to the rosary..
We read them a spooky story about a dead man and his body parts.
The body parts we had in bags
which the kids had to reach in without looking and feel the gross contents.
There was a lot of laughing, screaming and FUN!

Last night we had a little bonfire with some neighbors and family.
It was super chilly and fun
and of course
there was food.

shrimp and macaroni salad

spider covered Rum cake


The snake sandwich

Brains anyone?

To make the snake I use 3 rolls of french bread
shape and pinch together and bake.
Easy and fun.

The are lots of left overs for lunch today.
come on over!!

It is pumpkin carving night here in the spoonful house
I post our masterpieces soon
Have a safe and happy Halloween everyone!!!!!

The snake sandwich is awesome. Just brilliant. Hope you get some great costumes ringing your doorbell tomorrow. I'm secretly hoping we only get a few so I can eat the leftover candy... ~ Alicia, Fellow Baltimore-gal.
