My answers

Breakfast
What was your favorite costume you ever wore for Halloween? Add photos if you want!
I have soooooo many, but I guess my MOST favorite would be when Dave and I dressed up like a cop and a donut. I made the donut from a snowtube that I spray painted brown and the sprinkles were colored popsicle sticks. I also wore a Krispy Kreme sweatshirt and hat. I made Dave's officer patch on his sleeve so the shirt looked official.



My favorite costume I made for the boys, had to be McKay's Grinch costume. He was obsessed with the Grinch and wore it for a couple of years! The mummy costume I made had also got a lot of wear through the years!
McKay and his cousin Paigely rather...The Grinch and the Little Mermaid

I also LOVED the Frankenstein costume! This is Taylor. It was the top prize winner at the party he wore it to.



This is Bryce as Frankenstein. He also won a costume contest for it.


Lunch
What are your Halloween traditions? Are you going trick-or-treating or staying home and passing out candy? How much do you get in the Halloween spirit? (three course lunch today!)
I am the Queen of Halloween (or so my family calls me)! I LOVE HALLOWEEN! It is my favorite holiday. I love everything about it. I love to decorate the house inside and out and we have a lot of fun traditions we do each year. A few (I will spare you all of them!) of them are:



  • I have a large cauldron full of Halloween books that we read by flashlight at night.


  • We have a Halloween Dinner for Family Home Evening the Monday before which consists of a real scary menu. (I am going to do a post on this later- I hope!) We eat by candlelight and listen to scary Halloween music. We eat on all my Halloween dishes and utensils. So fun!


  • Trick or treating (of course!)


  • We love to go to our friends house where they do a real scary outdoor haunted area each year.


  • We have a dinner on Halloween night consisting of Cream of Potato or Taco soup in pumpkin bread bowls, along with whatever gory thing I decide to make that year...i.e. eyeball ice-cubes, bloody fingernail cookie fingers, eyeballs, graveyard cake, etc. My brother and his family and my parents usually come. Dry ice is always part of the menu brewing inside the red punch (blood) as well.


  • I love thinking of and making fun costumes...and if we don't get invited to a costume party, I am really bummed!


  • I like to make a Haunted Halloween gingerbread house when I have the time. Here's one I made a few years ago↓


Dinner
Do you believe in Ghosts???
I believe in the Holy Ghost! I totally believe that there are spirits (or angels) near us all the time.

Midnight Snack
What is your greatest Halloween memory?
Me and my friends would go trick 0r treating with our pillowcases and stay out until they were nearly full! Then instead of eating my gold mine, I would hide it under my bed until it got so old that I usually ended up throwing it all away. Real bright I know!

Don't sweat the small stuff. It always works out in the end!
