Okay people so lets be honest, I haven't blogged in centuries and I think I just blogged myself out last time and I needed a break; however, I am so ready to blog. In fact I have like 5 blogs I want to post, but don't worry I'm not going to go crazy and post them all tonight.
Since Halloween is only 3 days away I thought it appropriate to blog about our Halloween activities. Sunday we were finally able to carve our pumpkins. We bought them about a week before, but just never had the time to carve them up. It was way fun!!! We used the deluxe stencils because you can create some amazingly tight pumpkins. I tried to be all cool and do this haunted house, but I couldn't even trace it onto the pumpkin that is how hard it was so I went down.
I carved a creepy tree that says "Happy Halloween" in the branches and Justin carved a very cool ( I want to say cute, but that isn't very manly) window with a creepy cat and jack-o-lantern peering out. We had a lot of fun and I really want to carve another pumpkin. My dream is to one day carve a pumpkin that is over 100lbs. One day people one day!
So Monday we continued the Halloween fun into FHE with our good friends Emily and Logan and their super cute baby Sophie!! I have dubbed Emily the Cupcake Queen/Goddess! Not only do her cupcakes always look perfect, but they taste super delicious. These cupcakes were chocolate filled with, get this, Amaretto cream cheese filling. MMMM! Emily then showed us how to make super cute Frankensteins, Bride of Frankensteins, Skeletons, and Pumpkins.
Justin and I tried to get a little creative on our own and did not succeed so much. We both tried to bring the Joker to life on a cupcake, but mine looked like the creepy clown off "IT" and Justin's looked just plain creepy. Logan got creative as well and made a jack-o-lantern with braces and I swear that bunny is off of a cartoon line for line, I just can't place him. His crowning creating, the Batman call was eaten...by me. It was delicious!
I loved making the cupcakes sooo much that I am already looking at Christmas cupcake ideas and will be making them with the fam so be ready peeeps!
We had a blast with Emily and Logan and Justin had so much fun with Sophie. Here is a cute picture of her! Sophie is super cute and spent a good portion of the night digging/emptying my purse. I wish I would have taken a picture of her surrounded by my junk. Justin made her laugh by making a swish sound every time she hit his hand with a plastic hammer. She was super happy and Justin was super cute to watch like that. So our Halloween has been pretty fun thus far... to make it perfect I just need some cute trick-or-treaters to come visit our apartment so I can get rid of all my candy. Happy Halloween!
