Party Planning: Halloween

It is well known that Lilah lives for party planning.  Give her an event and she will give you an experience.  This was the first Halloween party she has thrown and it was a grand event.  




The highlight was a scavenger hunt game that the girls played in teams.  They had to find clues hidden in the house.  Some clues were spells that her team mates had to work together to reverse.  Others were clues to decipher the name of the witch who organized the game.  The first team to get her name won.  Along the way the teams used monopoly money to buy and sell clues and spells.  The remaining money was used to purchase prizes we picked up at the dollar store.  Everyone went home with something, whether they won the game or not.  











I wonder what Miss Lilah will plan for Christmas??

How lovely! How fortunate it is to be one of her friends!

She did it all....again. All I had to do was take her to the dollar store, get her the baking supplies and clean the house. It was the least stressful party ever. The only thing that would have made it better is if you were here!

Oh, I love her treats. We are having friends over for a Halloween lunch and looking for fun ideas to bake. Is she willing to share her recipe and tips for the pumpkins??

They are basic Rice Crispie Treats using Trader Joe's Rice Cereal and marshmallows. She used natural food coloring and a tootsie roll for the stem. We have little mini-loaf pans in the shape of little bunt pans that she sprayed with Canola Oil Spray and packed the Rice Crispies in to form the shape of the pumpkin. I would recommend muffin pans because it is very hard to form a ball.

Don't You Just Stay Home All Day?

It’s funny because last night at youth group some of the kids friends were discussing homeschooling and really truly felt that we stay home...
