Happy Halloween! The day has arrived! Pumpkins, ghosts, goblins, and who knows what else may be gracing our doorsteps tonight for Halloween. Get your candy ready!
While C is obviously too young to go Trick-Or-Treating this year, I still wanted to get into the spirit to commemorate the occasion of his very first Halloween. Our neighborhood doesn't have many kids, so it will be interesting to see if we have any costumed visitors come knocking tonight. As you can tell by the blurry photo above (it never fails...every time that GIANT smile comes out, my photos don't turn out), C is beyond excited to celebrate Halloween either way!
In preparation for the day, we've been reading Five Little Pumpkins and Room On a Broom on a daily basis for the last week or so to learn all about Halloween. We haven't yet carved a pumpkin, although T is adamant that this happen so we can make some delicious Roasted Pumpkin Seeds to munch on over the weekend. We'll have to see about that. Separating pulp from pumpkin seeds is a project I'm not exactly sure I'm terribly interested in spending time doing this evening.
Making these yummy looking healthy candy corn snacks, however, might be just the right amount of festiveness. Don't these look delicious!? I don't like candy corn at all, but this healthy fruit version is calling my name! Heck...maybe I'll even convince T to whip up something Halloween-y from the bar after C calls it a night. There's got to be a pumpkin or candy corn themed cocktail recipe out there somewhere right?!
Happy Haunting from our little munchkin!
