Halloween Odds-n-Ends

Have you seen the ghost of John?
Long white bones with the skin all gone...
Ooooo ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo,
Wouldn't it be chilly with NO skin on?
Sing with me if you also learned this song in elementary school.

I have a cost efficient costume this year- Elvira with a little Frankenstein thrown in combined with a mummy. Huh? you ask?? Let me explain further- when one mommy goes to bed at 11 only to wake up at 1:20am and lay awake until her three year old comes to her bed at 5am... voila, instant scary costume. And my only excuse is that the costumes need to be finished, treats for the All Saints Party need to be purchased, the ballet bill is overdue, the dinner got left out in the stock pot, a very wet towel was left in the tub and will probably stink in the morning- do I need to go on?

On an upbeat note- it's Halloween and a busy one at that. Art lessons this morning, Saints party this afternoon followed by a wardrobe change and an evening full of tricks or treats. We've been decorating all week and having a blast. Here's one of our favorites- making a tasty jack-o-lantern treat.

Cut faces on a tortilla.
Brush with oil or spray.
Dip in a bowl of cinnamon and sugar.
Bake till flaky and browned.
