Everyday Mom's Meals: Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween!!!

It's finally here! If your kids are anything like Monkey, and I think most are, the only countdown bigger than the one to today is the one coming up in about a month towards December 25th! Children everywhere are sitting in classrooms right now watching the minutes tick away just trying to contain themselves until they can get home, don their witches hats, pirate swords, superhero capes and princess tiaras. When Monkey gets home, he is convinced he needs to change right away, and trick or treating should start promptly at 3:45 pm. Well, our city council sees things differently and therefore made trick or treat hours from 6-8 pm, which means I have 2 hours to fill the void with some Halloween fun so I don't have to hear "Is it time yet?" every 5 minutes. So, I'm going to surprise him with these for a yummy, festive after school snack! I know he is going to think they are too cute and be surprised at what lies underneath. Hopefully these will lessen his urge to run out the door a little bit until that magical witching hour. From my family to yours, I wish you and your little ones a very "spook-tacular" and fun filled day!
