Halloween is alive and well...

at our house! Miss P and I were definitely due for some mother daughter bonding. So this, our first October weekend, became Halloween-palooza #1 of 2012.
Paige's favorite activity was playing Haunted Hotel.  Got a good tip from my latest Parents magazine about playing with your kids.  An improv expert suggests saying and/or doing something unexpected or wacky to liven things up (for yourself.)  So this mask has been making appearances.
We also cleaned and decorated. We had debates over scary scary, or happy harvest themes. 

And we made these Chocolate Chip Ghosties! How long has it been since I posted a recipe on the blog?!!

Here it is:

Chocolate Chip Ghosties
ingredients -
1 roll refigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 container white ready to spread frosting
candy eyes

Heat oven to 350.
Knead cookie dough and flour in a bowl until well mixed

Roll out dough onto a floured surface.
Cut out cookies with ghost cookie cutters and place on an ungreased cookie sheet

Bake 10-12 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned

Cool, then spread layer of frosting over each cookie. Finally, add the candy eyes.  I definitely prefer them to last year's Ghostie.

Have you started Halloween-ing?
