Trick or Treat

Posted by Anne Yorks on Monday, October 31, 2011

Did it snow this weekend where you live? It snowed here in Happy Valley (central PA). Of course this was the only weekend I was going to a Penn State football game. It was Cold. Wet. And Snowy. But I braved the elements because there is nothing like a game in Beaver Stadium. The game can be summed up as 4 quarters of forgettable football with 3 minutes of amazingness at the end. Here is link to a youtube video in case you missed the excitement. 

With house guests in for the weekend, the time seemed to fly by. We have an even busier week ahead of us. But one thing that we are making time for is Trick or Treat night. It will be the first time we take our daughter out to the neighbor's houses. She is very excited. And so am I because she promised to share her treats. 

Here are a few fun trick or treat cookies I made: 

Teddy bears in costumes and lots of candy!!


Everyone needs a nice big bag to collect all their goodies. No apples please, just snickers


My favorite Halloween/Fall treat is candy corn. Mmmmmm.



I liked both teddy bears, but the Jack-o-lantern costume was my favorite of the two.



The teddy bears aren't the only ones dressing up. My brother and I took my girls to an amazing 'costume-required' Halloween party. I went as the Cookie Queen. I have a tiara and spatula wand. Can you guess who my brother is? He's the lounge singer Robert Goulet. He serenaded the girls and I on the car trip to the party. I was laughing so hard I could barely drive straight. Too bad his beige loafers were cut-off in this picture. They really completed the ensemble. You can barely see Cecelia in her carseat in the background. She was a little Jack-o-lantern. So cute!!



My big girl went as the Beautiful Butterfly from The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We made the wings and the skirt and it ended up being a very cute and affordable costume!!

If you're venturing out tonight for some sweets have fun and be safe!!
