Par-tay and food

Today was the Halloween Party at Mom & Tots. When I started thinking about Halloween costumes for the girls, Ava was going to be a Gnome. then Princess Leia. then a Gnome, now she is a skeleton (kitty skeleton) and that's final!

Emily is drawing stick people and doing a good job! This is Daddy.



The best banana bread. Made with yogurt (calls for plain but vanilla works just the same). Margaret, do you remember this bread from the other store? We sat and ate all of it? I can't remember the employees name that made it. I just ate half of this loaf and I think I'm going to puke.

I am sewing! But I can't show it yet. Corinnea came over today and helped with my costume. I needed advice on where to place some trim. It's almost done!

Ok, that was weird.... It acted like it wasn't processing and then it posted my comment twice. Sorry.

Oh yeah, and the stick figure is SO cute! I can't get Ethan to even hold a writing utensil. He just flings them across the room to spear the bad guys...

Kelly, you're too funny! Jennifer - I love the costumes, they're so cute. Is Emily going to be the pirate for trick or treating. I want to see pics of her in that costume to.

Love your halloween costumes! I need to try that recipe I love yogurt in bread...i even have some bananas in the freezer!!(yes I am far too excited about this) I meant to comment on your bug silhouettes LOVE THEM even being bugs.... I like everything in a silhouette though even if it would creep me out in real life. The names make it even better!

Yummmmmm... I was just thinking about that bread the other day when my bananas were going bad. I think it was Debra Armstrong that gave us the recipe. I lost mine, I am so glad you posted it!! Now I want to bake.
The girls are as adorable as ever, especially the kitty skeleton. The gnome will be cuter when she is toddling around. Yay! for fun costumes, maybe I'll finish my dress you helped me start and wear it some future Halloween.

It was fun to watch the kids yesterday! I love the fingers and toes on Emily's drawing. The bread looks yummy. Last but not least, the dress is gorgeous!

By the way your little Picaso is doing great things... Love those stick people...:)

Hooray! You gave me that recipe and I've used it so many times, but can't find it anymore :( YAY! OMG, your girls are so flippin' cute! We're going to try to make it back on Friday in time for trick or treating. Hope to get to see you! This may be my last chance before we leave on Tuesday. :(

I need to get that banana bread recipe from you, it looks DELICIOUS. And I am so tempted to come to work Friday, just to see your costume!! I bet that it is gorgeous. And, finally, you have the cutest flippin' kids!!! Those pics of Ava across the top are priceless! I made Brandon come and look at them, and even he said she's pretty darn cute. :)

Thanks everyone! I think the girls are cute too:) What's really weird is that i posted a recipe and everyone got excited about it! That will probably never ever happen again. I can't cook and all my recipes are devoid of any vegetables or fruit (except bananan bread)so some would say devoid of flavor...I do have some chicken recipes that we make all the time so maybe I'll post those. Sasha...I'm so sad you're leaving so soon. I hope you'll visit germany again. We'll all miss you. Oh, Jessica: I got the silohouettes today and they are soooo cool in person!
