Halloween Fun

The kids were up before 6 AM.  I am sure I will miss these days, but oy.

We picked up some breakfast sandwiches and hit the road to visit my grandmother and "trick or treat".  

In the afternoon we went for an hour to their karate school for their Halloween party.  The kids had fun playing games.

We then went home to relax and I made dinner.  In the morning before we left I marinated chicken tenders in a great marinade from Kate Gosselin's cookbook "Love is in the Mix" - olive oil, lots of fresh lemon juice, white balsamic vinegar, basil and garlic salt.  It was delicious.

I also had a lot of vegetables I had to use up from our organic crop share.  I wasn't sure what time we would be home so I put the butternut squash in the crockpot with a tiny bit of water, sprinkle of brown sugar and a tab of butter.  When it was time I scooped it out and mashed it as a side.  It was good - the baby in particular loved it.

After dinner we went to an awesome place by us call Dino Dig USA.  The kids had fun digging for Halloween treasures, painting pumpkins, bobbing for apples, eating doughnuts off a string (no hands!) and playing a lot of fun games.

The kids are now passed out. My husband went out with two high school friends and I am going to unwind on pinterest before going to bed.
