I wish we had a spiderweb in our giant tree. That would be so cool.

I used to really go all out decorating for Halloween. The last couple of years I haven't done much though. We get almost no trick or treaters in our neighborhood so I didn't really see the reason. 
My cute lil spiders. 

Spooooooky tree

This bag is full of leaves that I raked! (the I there isn't doing its
all capital job. It should be very dramatic.)
Then the other day Zach mentioned how cool it would be if we had a spiderweb in our giant tree. And guess what I realized? I DO have trick or treaters to decorate for. So while they have been at their Grandmas for UEA weekend, I have been decorating for Halloween. 

The spinnerey thing has a bat in the center.
Looks just like batman. 

Bat tinsel I hung on the porch banister
Super sparkly pumpkin. Its actually been up awhile. 


Monster pals on the wall. They are quite large. 
Its not a lot but its a start!

My awesome skeletons. I wish I had more of them. 

The Witch Spirit Ball. She talks almost as much as Chelsea. At least she has an off switch. 

Happy Halloween!

VooDoo Darlings

Ted and his ladies!  See the ghost?

We went to the VooDoo Darlings show last night at Murray Theatre. My brother was doing the lights for them so we showed up. We went for their Valentine show too. The Halloween show is a lot more fun, but then Halloween is just more fun then Valentines day! =D

I think she just saw the ghost

Brandon was supposed to come also but once again got stuck at work. I got a bit disappointed that he was missing it and lost my excitement to go. But went and had fun anyway. Sometimes I just get so frustrated with his job. Anyway! Ted ended up going with 3 lovely ladies. He said if Brother Brandon gets to have his brides Papa Ted can have his lovely ladies!

Before the show show. I wish I could remember their name.
They were very entertaining. 

I really enjoyed the show. Some acts were amazing and some were eh but it was quite fun overall. 

Ted got a manly 10 calorie drink

The trapeze act. It was amazing. 
My cutesy brother and his adorable wifey.

Apple day at preschool

I went in and helped in Chelseas class today. It was my first time spending the day in her new class. First, I want to say I am so happy with her school. Her teacher is amazing and so is the teachers helper. Its the perfect fit for Chelsea. 

I didn't get any pictures today. I was too busy. And I was sticky with apple, being that it was apple day!

I spent the beginning of the time peeling apples. 22 apples. 

Every kid brought in 2 apples today. With their first apple they made applesauce. We cut up the apples and they added all of the ingredients to make the applesauce. Chelsea was wildly excited for the cinnamon. She had the teachers assistant just laughing because she wanted CINNAMON! 

They ate the other classes batch of applesauce for snack today and made their batch for them. The basically followed this recipe except they were cut into chunks and they didn't smash them. Not so much appleSAUCE but it was yummy. And I don't even like cooked apples. 

With their other apple they made shrunken apple head witches. I got to help them carve their apples for this. It was fun. Except I am covered in apple gunk and apple juice. It was a sticky job. The kids loved it. Now they are all sitting in the sun withering away. Next week they get to decorate and dress them. I can only imagine how that will go. Did I mention I have to MAKE the dress and send it in with her? Shrunken apple head instructions.
