FAMiLY | Phantom Pumpkin 2012

Happy Halloween everyone!!
My family should've done this a couple of weeks ago...
However, despite some complicated scheduling conflicts...
we were all finally able to be home together Monday night...
to carry out our annual tradition...

I wanted to share with you the cute treats we gave out this year...

Candy Filled Cups

Homemade Lollipops

Chocolate Covered Oreos® and Nutter Butter Cookies


I created decorative "cookie trays" by covering scraps of cardboard with cute scrapbooking paper.
I placed a couple of cookies on each tray, slid them into a cellophane bag and tied them with ribbon.





There was some trial and error creating the homemade lollipops.
Things started off great...

Then things quickly digressed...

 I persevered and ironed out the kinks...

And finally achieved success!!

KEEPiNG iT REAL
With Ema on crutches this year...
she was an absolute grouch wasn't too happy about not being able to participate in her usual capacity.
Nonetheless...
I played Halloween Music on our drive...
hoping to create the perfect Phantom Pumpkin setting.
(it was quickly boycotted). *frown*
Regardless, it was a fun night...
and most importantly...
we were together...
creating memories as a family...
my favorite past time. *wink*
