A brief interruption to the Disney posts...Halloween!

So our youngest, in her free time created these lovely candy corn cookies and much to the dismay of her mama heart, her 3 children decided to decorate them with Easter, Christmas, Valentine sprinkles.
 And her mama heart died a little.
But she said nothing and allowed them the joy of creating all of the above loveliness.
Now that is the mark of a good mama!

She also made her own caramel and dipped wonderful tart green granny smith apples. And she rolled them in various and wonderful things.

We enjoyed them immensely.

And Rapunzel took down the Ninja turtle and the biggest, little baby chewed on...I have no idea what?!*

And these two had the best time except for when jumpin J had a slight problem in the driveway and daddy and ray left her with mama until the crying stopped...15 or so minutes later! Lucky mama!

Wanted you to see the real Ninja in this one!

And she looked adoringly up at her crying brother (why was he crying? because Grandma wanted a picture and they weren't going trick or treating fast enough!)By the way that is Toothless the Dragon and his Fairy sidekick...

This is our November, summer sunset from the other night...quite beautiful don't you think?

The month is amber
Gold and brown.
Blue ghosts of smoke
Float through the town.
Great V's of geese
Honk overhead,
And maples turn
A fiery red.

Frost bites the lawn.
The stars are slits
In a black cat's eye
Before she spits.
At last, small witches,
Goblins, hags
And pirates armed
With paper bags,
Their costums hinged
on safety pins,
Go haunt a night
Of pumpkin grins.
