Inspired by my October issue of Southern Living and Martha Stewart's awesome Halloween ideas, I decided to surprise my family with a "Boo Bash" before heading out to the church festival and Cousin Dan's for trick or treating.
The fun pinwheel doo-dads hanging from the ceiling were from Martha Stewart's Living website and were a cinch to make.
I coffee-stained some cheesecloth and it turned out to be just the right amount of eerie. I saved it to use next year for Halloween.
And on the menu:
Mummy Dogs and Fritos
And then we were off to the church carnival. Ethan decided at the last minute that a magician was not what he wanted to be. His happy face was short-lived and replaced by this I'm-angry-at-mom-for-not-letting-me-be-something-different-at-the-last-minute face.
Alas, we arrived at the carnival with the grumpy magician and his fat non-disappearing bunny.
and frowns were turned upside down in a jiffy
despite the bunny's refusal to partake in any magic tricks with her magician brother.
