So this post is a little late, but I thought I'd share some Halloween costumes and treats!

Here is the chocolate cake I made for Halloween night. I saw it done on the Today Show and it was pretty easy. But, I must have not let it cool all the way because the tree fell over before we got to eat it!
I melted some chocolate bars down put the melted chocolate into a zip lock baggy and just kind of gooped it in a "tree" shape. I put it in the fridge to cool.

I used Milano cookies and black frosting as "grave-stones".

I covered pretzel sticks in white chocolate and added marshmallows to the ends to make "bones".
The finished product: a creepy graveyard!

Jackson's favorite movie for the past year has been The Cat in the Hat. So for Halloween the boys had to be Thing 1 & Thing 2. They LOVED being Things, and making the costumes were super easy!

I just bought red fleece footy pj's. Used sticky-back felt, cut in a circle on the chest and pre-cut sticky-back felt letters/numbers to spell Thing 1 & 2. Red mittens. For the blue hair I simply hot glued blue feather boas onto a beanie. Super fun costumes. I love my little Things.
