Thank you skywriter for the entertainment Sunday.  I have never seen skywriting in action. Very cool! I stood in the parking lot of our church from start too finish while my kids begged to go home.  Look how even the letters are, that is talent!

Halloween Dinner

This year Heather went as a nerd. Ashley was a tourist. Aubrey and Michael went as cowhands. So I had very little sewing, only suspenders and some fringe on a cowboy shirt  We put our energy into dinner. Becky brought the chicken, beans and rice. That left the fun stuff for us.
 I carved the brain shape before cooking the cauliflower in water with some red food coloring. It glowed a creepy pink under the black light.
 Aubrey and Heather made the deviled eggs. Aubrey also made the string cheese fingers. They looked so creepy I couldn't even eat them. The jar is just sour cream with some green olives.
 I looked at Fry's for the stuff to make homemade root beer but no luck. So I just poured a couple bottles in and added dry ice. Everyone thought it was the most awesome homemade root beer ever until I had to refill and they saw what they were drinking. Next year I need to try Safeway.
I was so excited to finally find something that really glows under black light.  Tonic Water!!  We put it in the apple and grape juice.  Next year I think I will breakdown and buy cool aid or maybe sprite, something super sweet so I can add more tonic water without making the drinks too bitter.
Of the three different kind of black lights I had the energy efficient work the best. they really made the table glow!

Here are the kids. VERY toned down in the costume department. I guess that is just the case as the kids get older. It is all about the candy.
