My little helpers...

I love having my two little girls "help me" with baking. Is there anything more exciting to a little kid than a beater full of sweet stuff or a spatula full of frosting? And so, my girls helped me prepare for a game night with some of my MOPS leaders last night.

One of my favorite college care packages included these nutter butter ghost cookies with licorice eyes. They've been around forever, but are still one of my favorites! Of course, we had to do some chocolate chip eyes as well for my girls who don't like black licorice. (My favorite!)

Somehow the girls lost their clothes after the first project, but anyway... Next we made pumpkin peeps. Too simple! Orange food coloring, sugar and marshmallows... shake in a bag, and add some green for the stems. Seriously! I got this idea from "Be Different... Act Normal."

I also got the idea for these candy corn pudding cups from the same blog. What really got me excited was the fact that I could buy the vanilla pudding, butterscotch pudding, and the cool whip in the sugar-free variety, so I could have a dessert for myself. Woohoo! I must say, I really enjoyed it. I also enjoyed the fellowship and games with my friends... even if I didn't win! Here's the finished product:

Oh, I almost forgot... I also found these Halloween labels from some blog somewhere a long time ago, and decided to try them out. I had intended to color the water, but decided to leave it as is. Anyway, it was lots of fun, and I hope to figure out how to do more labels in the future!

How fun! I love the ghosts. I make santas at Christmas but have never done ghosts. Ooooo, something new to do! ;) The peeps and labels are fun too. Again, something new to do! Thanks for the ideas! Don't ya just love Halloween? :)

Awww, thanks ladies! Yes, I LOVE Halloween time! I'll have to try the Santas for winter since we did flip flops for summer and ghosts for fall!
