After rave reviews last year, our Halloween Witch gave Mummy Monday another go round today!
The mummified menu consisted of bananas on sticks, white chocolate dipped pretzel rods and crescent roll wrapped hot dogs. For all the gory details, hop on over to last year’s post.
Knowing how the littles love some suppertime entertainment, the thrifty Witch picked up a darling Truth or Dare game in the dollar bin at Target. (Have y’all noticed that I always make a super big deal of anything thrifty? That’s for Honey’s benefit.)
It made for such a memorable night that I’m pretty sure we’ll be doing it again tomorrow! Highlights included:
Mommy cackling like a witch (yikes, that is pretty horrific looking in retrospect)
Honey walking like a zombie
The PCP slithering like a snake
And the baby doing the Hokey Pokey
Anytime we have lunch-able leftovers I always go ahead put together meals for the next day. The littles are already excited about “Mummy Tuesday” and I’m thrilled to shave a good five minutes off the morning routine.
As for the rest of our day, the baby had a morning AND an afternoon play date, and I was able to sneak off to help the PCP’s class “defy gravity” as a science lab volunteer at school.
The baby’s tennis lesson got called off about ten minutes in when limbs starting raining down on the court. I personally could not have been more relieved, though I heard a few other (obviously eskimo-ish) moms complaining. It was FRIGID and the perfect excuse to warm up with some hot chocolate at home.
And in between it all, I was glued to CNN’s coverage of the devastation already caused by Sandy. Prayers go out to all of you in the Northeast!
