So I thought with 3 kids in school life would be less busy but that seems to be the exact opposite right now. I acuually have a few half written posts I need to do but have not found the time..... soon they will be here :)
But here is our October's Family Theme Night!!! I first planned this to be a little friend party but it didn't work out, although next month I plan to do a little friend party for my kids!
Being October it was only fitting to have It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown Theme Night, it is one of our favorite Halloween shows and the kids loved it. We started the night out at our local pumpkin patch of course. The kids played and had a great time picking out their perfect pumpkin.
When we came home we made these pumpkin patch cookies and ghosts because that is what all the characters dressed up as in the movie.
I love Pinterest for inspiration and I found these ghosts here and let the kids decorate them however they wanted. I didn't like pouring the white chocolate over the top because it just puddled at the bottom and didn't really cover the top (the bottom 2 in the picture) and so for the rest I just dipped the cut twinkie into the chocolate and it covered them perfectly to look like little ghosts!
For the pumpkin patch I found this fun recipe here but I just used regular graham crackers and some green frosting (pretty much just things I had on hand and didn't need to run to the store ) And the kids when to town on them... you see some patches were more productive than others :)
We then had our dinner which was chili and corn bread with some fritos on top, because honestly they make chili better! This meal was pretty much out of convenience but it worked perfectly for the night. It was something I had in our pantry that I needed to use but also it was easy to just have it cooking in my crockpot while we were at the pumpkin patch and it was orange which I loved!! We then had some cuties because they look like mini pumpkins and I didn't post it but we had some orange Tampico Punch for our drink, again going with the orange theme!
And we ended the night eating our ghosts and pumpkin patches
And of course watching It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
It was a fantastic night and I know a great memory for my kids!!
