Happy Halloween

Munchkin Pants was sick pretty much all last week and this past weekend.  He's finally getting better and is excited to go trick or treating today.  We're in the process of switching his preschools to a 5 day pre-k morning class from a 3 day afternoon class.  It hasn't been easy- new forms, new fees, leaving old friends and teachers.  I didn't really expect it to go as badly as it did but hopefully when he officially starts it'll be fine.  I know in the long run it's a better choice but that doesn't ease the guilt as mentioned in the last blog post.

Onto Halloween costumes...we had it all set up- friday night he would go to his new school's harvest festival as Bumble Bee the transformer (yea I know really appropriate), then to our gym's PJ Party saturday night as a Ninja and today trick or treating as Gnomeo.  Well with the sickness and cough from hell it put a wrench in everything.  No harvest festival or pj party.  Guess what he picked to go trick or treating?  Not the totally cute gnome outfit put together by mom...oh noooooo... he picked the cheesy target Ninja outfit!  I guess it's my fault because I bought it but that's a whole other story.  So he'll be happy as a clam and I'll be silently sulking...lol just kidding...sort of.

Let's talk caramel apples!  I don't think I've ever made them at least I can't remember ever making them so I thought we'd give it a whirl.  I melted a package of caramels with 2 tablespoons of water and it worked out perfectly.  We had some m&m's hanging around so we rolled them in those.  I think when we were done each apple weighed a pound.  Not lying!  We got a little carried away with the m&m's.  They were delicious, you can't really go wrong with caramel and chocolate.


Happy Halloween!
