Boo & Eek

Halloween is fast approaching.
I like to focus on the Fun/Spooky side of things and stay away from the Evil/Scary stuff. Some of the trick-or-treaters that come to our door are downright frightening! Lucky for me I had girls who were happy to be pretty princesses and ballerinas! LOL
Although, I remember one year I did have a Bride of Frankenstein and a Dracula . . .

Besides trick or treating a favorite activity of ours has always been carving jack-o-lanterns. Since we grew our own pumpkins, most years we usually carved at least 4 – one for each member of the family. Pulling out the pumpkin “guts” was always a messy thrill. Then was the task of deciding on the perfect face design and getting it carved. To finish off the evening I would bake up a batch of Pumpkin Cookies to fill the house with a sweet, spicy smells of autumn. Then we’d stick a candle in the pumpkins, turn off the lights, and enjoy our short-lived Halloween guests.



Hope Boo & Eek can help you with your holiday craft projects. And don’t forget to scrap your family’s favorite traditions!
