We had an INCREDIBLE Halloween. When we woke up this morning, I made some special Halloween cinnamon rolls with chocolate icing. Thank you Aldi! They were delicious. I'd post a picture but they were eaten so quickly that I didn't get a chance. Instead, I'll just put a link here.
We made a Spooky lunch of Mummy Pizzas. The kids ate these really quickly and asked for more right away.
These Mummy Pizzas were really easy to make. We took Thomas' English muffins, split them in half, then laid them on a cookie sheet. We topped each half muffin with spaghetti sauce (we were out of pizza sauce) and then laid on some pulled apart string cheese. We left a little room for the eyes when putting the cheese on. Then, we added two slices of black olives for the eyes, baked at 425 for about 10 minutes and served. YUM!
We all took a little nap to gear up for Trick or Treating and upon waking decided to sit and watch, "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!" on DVD. All of the kids loved it, especially the baby. It really got us in the spirit of Halloween.
My husband and the girls then carved the pumpkin. SO CUTE!
Finally, we had to get dinner going before getting our costumes on. Time for the Mummy Dogs! (note: none of us were mummies this year, it was just the food theme. ☺)
These are the full size version of the Mummy Dogs that we put in Molly's Lunchbox the other day. We sliced a slit on the bottom half of the hot dog and added a small piece of American cheese. Then, we wrapped the dog with pieces of refrigerated crescent rolls. We had sliced the crescent rolls into strips earlier. We then poked two holes in for eyes. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes. Let cool a bit. Add mustard eyes and serve. We served these with some potato chips and salad, plus some extra mustard for dipping.
We then got on our costumes, did our make-up and braved the cold evening here in Pittsburgh.
The kids came home with a TON of treats and had an absolute blast while walking the hills of the neighborhood. We had about 200 Trick or Treaters here at our house. A successful night all around. Time to watch the game! GO STEELERS!

Hope everyone has a great week! We have in-service days on Monday and Tuesday for parent/teacher conferences. So, we'll see you Tuesday night for Wednesday's lunch.
Again, Happy Halloween, from our house to yours!
