My poor little pumpkin came down with strep throat this past week and all the planning we did for our First Annual Halloween Shindig had to be put off. Auntie B called and said that since he'd be on his antibiotics for over 24 hours, she was still comfortable hanging out with us and coming over for pizza and treats. I told Tristan that they would still come over and play with him and he could dress up too, he said, "...and Grandma too?" I said yes, I will see if Grandma still wants to come over. Of course she did - and she brought some treats too!
We made hot apple cider, spider peanut butter cookies (attempted to, at least), zombie deviled eggs, ranch pumpkin seeds, and candy corn parfaits (with pineapple, mandarin oranges, and whipped cream). The kids had a great time playing together, and we even went around the block to a few houses to trick-or-treat. Tristan still didn't really understand what he was doing, but really liked grabbing in the bowl for candy. It was pretty funny when a neighbor had candy that he didn't know what to take because he'd never seen it before (suckers, starbursts, and lifesavers). What a fun night!
