if I had the energy...

and if there weren't a hurricane going on outside our windows, I would've made a bigger deal out of Halloween this year. Wouldn't it have been charming to have made the entire family homemade thematic costumes? Or even store-bought costumes? And to have had a party? Or a homeschool activity day? Or something? For how long do I get to use "I just gave birth to twins" as my excuse for being utterly unproductive?

But thanks to Pinterest, next year I am ready with a stockpile of ideas:

Eyes in the Bushes ~ Add glow sticks & tuck in shrubs for Halloween.
A bunch of easy ideas for a Halloween party... veggies, desserts and dips all with a mummy theme!

Freeze water in a surgical hand glove to make a creepy ice cube for the punch at Halloween party. Whoa, spooky. 
Oh my, this is clever, isn't it?
Mummy dogs!

ghostly footprints!
cute thumb-print spiders
not sure what I'd use these for - but I like them!

Costume ideas:

Von Trapps (though to be accurate I'd need to have four more children?)

Classic Star Wars (Wouldn't PapaQ make a great Chewie?)

Little House on the Prairie

Hope your Halloween is fun and safe this year!

Since I'm still using my almost three year old as an excuse for not getting things done, I think you've got a good long time to use your twins as an excuse.

I agree. I think you can use that excuse for the rest of your life. I am missing all of you so much. There is so much going on in the east these days. I hope everyone is safe and sound.
