this year i feel like i've not paid attention to the fact that halloween is like in two days. um normally i'm chomping at the bit to get my hands on pumpkins by like sept 30th...and yet here we sit on oct 29th and i've still not bought one single pumpkin to carve.
i have in fact done christmas shopping and have already done a mock up trial run of thanksgiving dinner (while my mom was here so she could taste my dinner since we both always end up not at eachother's houses for that holiday) but halloween? totally has flown under the radar. i'm just lucky that the boys are going to be clone troopers again and katie wants to be a black cat...so totally do-able.
but i wanted to make something fun. last years version of fun was not a hit...sooo this year:
i decided on nutritional frozen yogurt candy corn looking Popsicles
all you need is regular yoplait yogurt some in these flavors:
*vanilla (french if they have it...it has a more yellow-y color)
*and lemon (for the white. i know i bought it for the yellow but it turned out more white than the french vanilla)
*Popsicle sticks broken in half
*and Dixie cups
i started with a small dab of lemon at the bottom of the cup.
then i put a hefty amount of orange for the middle
and finally finished it off with the french vanilla.
i think i did too much orange and not enough of the yellow the first batch...but the batch that is freezing right now has a better yellow section.
but the kids don't care. they seem to think it was pretty cool and so much better than pumpkin soup like last year.
something i did bring back from last year is the witch fingers.
every one loves witch fingers.
and it's especially funny to flip off the only other adult in the room without the kids seeing.
not that i've done that...i just think it would be funny.
have a great almost halloween!
