Halloween is one of our favorite times around here. The boys asking non-stop when the 'spookies' are coming, the decorations slowly going up, all of the adorable neighborhood children screaming 'TRICK OR TREAT' at the top of their lungs, and the endless amount of candy that I can sneak from that the boys bring home (come on, you know you do too).
We are getting started on the pumpkins and exterior decorating today, not sure who is more excited, Rob or the boys. Here is a glimpse of what we did last year, there are a few strobe lights, a few smoke machines, and of course loud scary music blaring from the garage.
This Sunday I will have one Superman and one penguin in the house, a big change from the frog-man I had last year seen below. We will also be spending time with some wonderful friends and their little ones who's costumes I am looking forward to gushing over.
The night also deserves a special drink, so nothing better than Spiked Hot Apple Cider to keep us big kids on our toes throughout the evening. Here is the recipe...
Spiked Hot Apple Cider
6 oz Hot Apple Cider
1 oz Sourpuss Apple
1 oz Butterscotch Ripple Schnapps
Cinnamon Stick to garnish
Trust me it is great...and it will keep you warm.
Have a safe and wonderful time trick or treating, passing out the goods, or just enjoying the excitement that the little ones will have this weekend. Happy Halloween!!! Mel xo
