Yesterday marked not only the end of October and Halloween, but also the beginning of the Holiday season! I have already purchased the Michael Buble Christmas CD, so I am feeling ready to go for the Holidays. Before I get too far into my Holiday preparations, I want to recap the Siuta Halloween 2011.
Halloween preparation actually started on Sunday night as I was in charge of bringing a sweet treat for the daycare's Halloween party. Since my Michael Jackson-inspired sugar cookies turned out so tasty, I decided to go with frosted sugar cookies. I bought a couple of fun Halloween shaped cookie cutters and got to work after Morgan went to bed. The pumpkins turned out looking like odd shaped circles, so I just frosted those in orange and added some sprinkles. The ghosts turned out pretty well, so I frosted those in white and added some mini chocolate chip eyes. The cats did not turn out well. I should have taken some pictures so that you could get the full impact, but at the end of the day it was decided that the cats would stay home for Matt while the rest of the cookies went to the daycare party.
Halloween morning dawned, Matt had to work 8-4, so it was a pretty fast paced morning. We got Morgan up, showered and dressed in her Minnie Mouse costume. Matt left with Morgan, Minnie Mouse ears, and three plates of cookies. When he came home with Morgan we were missing a sweater and some shoes, but at least daycare was able to post some a couple of pictures of Morgan enjoying her Halloween celebration. Below is a pic of Morgan at daycare:
