Family Night #1

Tonight was our first ever themed family night - inspired by Heather Whitaker

Since Friday is Halloween, it seemed appropriate to have a Halloween family night.

We started with dinner, including...

Mummy Pizza (you have to really want to see it :)

Worms (which Sydney LOVED!):

Jack-O-Lantern Sandwiches:
And for dessert,

Jack-O-Lantern Jell-O:

Mummy-mallows

Then we carved pumpkins...

Then we tried on costumes...


It was a really fun night. Elisa started the night as a farmer - b/c Syd is a cow. But ended the night as Super Girl - actually she decided she was actually Word Girl. She also wore a scarf around her nose while carving the pumpkin because of the smell. Funny. I also love Maya's expression in the pic w/ all 3 girls - like "what the heck is going on?" Hilarious.

I don't know if I found the website you were inspired by on my own, or through you, but I think it is such a cool idea! You did a great job with yours! Your girls looked great and everyone looked like they had a good time. Are you going to continue every week? That seems tricky to me.
Bravo on Halloween Theme Night, I loved it!

I would really like to do it every week - that is the plan, but I'm sure our crazy schedules will creep in from time to time. We had a really great time, though. Especially the kids. Ricky says we need more guy friendly family nights - but he's pretty outnumbered =)

Ha ha - I just realized that there are no pictures of me anywhere to be seen. Funny - it's as if Charly was my stand in for the family night. Maybe next time I should get in a picture or two.

I tried to take a family pic of you guys, but you would never stop long enough to let me.
