The Aga was not feeling quite itself this morning! A spooky addition to my tea-towel collection sent from our American friends in time for Halloween...along with some of these very curious but very yummy things!
Oh we love Halloween and we miss our friends so very much!! Undaunted, we decided to keep up all the traditions we enjoyed with them in years before. Cookies were baked,
Pumpkin faces were drawn, pondered over and adapted before being cut (mummy wields the knife!),Place cards were decorated,
Pumpkins were found glowing in curious places,
The stage was set!
Witches and ghouls began to arrive and this cute little devil was so happy when finally the mayhem began!
We played musical ghouls, pin the tail on the rat,We had a hysterical time with lots of loo paper playing the 'mummy game' (don't ask!),
and the little ones had a lovely daring time thinking up an ingredients list for the 'Witches Cauldron' (think 'Granny's shopping basket'); "In my cauldron to make my spell I put....". Bat's blood, bogies and boy's smelly socks were amongst my faves!
After a trip out into the crisp dark autumn night for Trick or Treating at our lovely neighbour's, we came home to a supper of curly worms in bat's blood.
The beautiful boy had a lovely time full of new memories for a happy halloween.
And then we phoned across the Atlantic;
"Trick or Treat! Trick or Treat! Give us something good to eat!"
Just the way they taught us!Happy Halloween everyone! t.x
