Halloween, Part 2

(Update 10/30, 1:30 am: More photos added. Thanks, T - I stole them from your Facebook album.)

Tonight was the big MOMS Club family Halloween party. Somehow, I managed to get myself signed up to take both cookies and a veggie tray (or two), so this afternoon, Peeper and I baked and decorated some cookies, and left some "blank" to take with us.

You know, the first time she helped me decorate cookies was for this same event last year. I was looking at a bunch of old posts last night, and it is just amazing what a completely different experience it is now. Of course, the most striking thing is that she can now hold a whole complex conversation about the cookies, but also, I didn't end up having to vacuum and mop the entire kitchen after we were finished!

After we made the cookies, I did my veggie trays, both of which were based on things that I've seen on Pinterest. This is actually why I signed up for veggies in the first place.

My version

When I finished making this, Peeper told me, "Nicwy done, Mama!"

Another inspiration

and another

And mine

I considered trying this one, too, but decided that I wasn't quite up to it.

My veggies seemed to be a big hit, in that they were almost completely gone by the end of the evening. Of course, that means that all my hard work got messed up pretty quickly, but I guess I had to expect that, huh?

Of course, we all dressed for the occasion, and when T posts or sends the photo that she took of the three of us, I'll steal it and add it in here, but in the meantime, here are a couple of the littlest Wicky Witch at our house.

Yes, that is a knife in her hand. She's icing a cookie. And licking the icing off the knife. We tossed that one when she was finished.

And licking the icing off the cookie. I think we ended up tossing the cookie itself, too.

Of course, you can't have a Wicky Witch without some flying monkeys. 

And, finally, one of the whole coven family.


  1. I just clicked the link to last year. Oh my goodness, she was a baaaybeee! And is such a child now. When did that happen?

    LOVE the monkey panties!


  2. Apparently you needed to go trick or treating with Dooce. --->
