Halloween 2014

Halloween was really fun this year. I did a few things for the first (and some for the last) time. At school we had a challenge between some of the teachers and we had to eat crickets. I really did it. I had to include this because I never thought that I would be able to bring myself to do it. I ate six in all and no, they weren't covered in chocolate or inside candy or anything, they were just crickets. At least I know I could survive eating bugs in the apocalypse right? ;) Well, actually that's definitely a one time thing for me.

Next, I made marshmallow fondant ghosts for some cupcakes for the first time. I was really proud of my cupcakes because I had made the fondant, cupcakes, frosting, and eyes all myself. They were really simple, but I was still proud. I will definitely be working more with fondant.

Finally, we had our first Halloween at our new house. We actually decided to go trunk-or-treating with my mum's ward instead of going around our neighborhood. I just felt like it would be so much easier with small kids and they had dinner and it allowed Lila to go with some of her cousins. It was a lot of fun and I'm really glad we did it that way. Lila LOVED it. She was a beautiful Cinderella, I was a pilot, and Brighton was my copilot. We had a good time as a little family. The only sad thing was that we didn't get very many trick-or-treaters at our place. :( Apparently that was common around our whole neighborhood, though. Too bad for some kids… our neighbors were handing out full size candy bars. ;) 

I'm looking forward to the rest of the holiday season!
