Thursday, Leigh had the spooktacular idea to do a Halloween themed family night filled with tons of fun for the kids!
The night began with some face painting. Glory enjoyed painting my face as I struggled to paint her ever-squirming mug! (There is possible scarring from the force with which she dug her brush into my cheek.)
I painted three faces in the time it took Leigh to paint ONE!
Which might explain why her results were so much better!
Sarah's contribution turned Abbee into an eerie reproduction of Heath Ledger's Joker...Glory RAN FROM HER after this transformation!
Later, the kids each decorated their own "mummy" cupcakes. When they saw my Martha-esque examples, JP thought they were ghosts and JW suggested zombies. I'm not sure what the difference between a zombie and a mummy is exactly, but I'm certain that they did not resemble zombies. Zombies are just creepy. Emma and Abs revived my wavering pride when they each guessed correctly!
Glory had a meticulous cupcake decorating approach that alternated between squeezing the frosting and licking the tip! YUM!
Here are the fabulous results:
We were a little ambitious in our plans and ran out of time and energy before we painted and carved our pumpkins! At least we still have a couple of weeks before Halloween!
Here are a few other random pics from our night of fright:
A VERY SPECIAL THANKS TO AUNT LEIGH FOR HER DOWN RIGHT AWESOMENESS!!
