Happy Halloween!

Hope you're having a good Halloween! 
At 6.15pm I have now run out of treats to hand out and I bought loads more than last time! Still the pumpkin pie is cooking and my kids are still out, they have been dressed as a witch and cat all day, you'd have thought it was Christmas they were so excited!
I don't know about you but I was never allowed to go trick or treating, it seems to only recently have taken off as a new holiday celebration and only because the shops are happy for another marketing ploy.  I do remember dressing up as a witch and apple bobbing with friends though, nice tame excitement!
The girls have cut out some pictures to decorate the front door with, the pumpkin got carved and we made some great hanging ghosts.

We scrunched up some paper and stuck them to a line of sellotape, which we then rolled over to make a big ball shape.

Then we decorated some white bin bags with black eyes (permanent marker or black card glued on)

Then we tied a bit of string onto the paper ball, put a hole in the top of the ghosts head and threaded it through,you can then hang it up..

 Pumpkin expertly carved by Daddy!
Right better check the pie!  Hope you've all had a good evening.
