Perfect! Thank you for this. We're going to do it.
Actually, I was thinking of trying to make rice crispie treats, which I've never done before, so maybe we can take those over. I have some Halloween shaped cookie cutters that I'd like to use. Although, I'm not exactly a good baker. Bringing them something I've never made before might not be much of a thank you.
But hey, that's what boxed cake mixes are for, right?
Was so happy to have Ava and Hubby come home from camp on Friday!
Derek had as much fun as Ava did and probably acted all of 12 years old the whole time he was there. I went out during the day on Thursday and Ava's group was doing the orienteering class. The camp staff was asking questions and Derek was shouting out the answers before any child even had a chance. I finally turned to him and said, "You know you're not supposed to be doing that. Let the kids answer." The other parents thought it was hilarious. On the final night of camp the boys in his cabin got into a massive pillow fight with the boys in the next cabin. Guess who was leading the charge?
Yesterday we dragged out all the Halloween stuff and started decorating. So fun! Before my sister moved to Montana she gave us some of her Halloween stuff. Really cool stuff! She loves buying Halloween stuff. My favorite is this witch's head in a big crystal ball that lights up and talks when you trigger a motion sensor. And now that they've changed trick or treating hours here so that it will actually be dark outside, we'll be able to get the full effect of our light up stuff!
