Halloween Day activities

I love making holidays fun for my kids and finding simple little special ways to create 'good' mommy memories! (i wouldn't want to be remembered as the mom that NEVER did anything!)

For breakfast we had Pumpkin heads (pumpkin muffins), witch fingers (sausages), and dead mans punch (orange juice with frozen sprite head).

I thought my camera was broken. EVERY picture was coming out dark and I couldn't figure out why. I was so mad at myself when I figured it out. My Aperture had been changed and was at like a 20! I never change it so I hadn't even thought to look at that. The whole days pictures turned out awful just because of the silly aperture!

For school I had purchased pumpkins for the kids to paint. I was thinking silly faces but thanks to my brother and sister who painted angry bird pumpkins...that's what my kids wanted to paint! I convinced them to be a little bit more original and they came up with minions. I was still sad we didn't get just some cute pumpkin faces!

Two years ago I had purchased these little face pieces to put into your pumpkin. So we split and did two carved and two with the little face pieces. I was thinking just for the little kids to do, but Ky and Maliyah wanted to do it just as much as the babies.

Yum, making caramel apples!

taking Savannah outside to see if I could figure out what the heck was wrong with my camera. I didn't figure it out at that time. Bummer because she was being really cute! I had to have my shutter speed so slow lots of the pictures were out of focus. I know I should have just switched to Auto at this point, but I'm trying to just learn my camera and practice...guess I learned didn't I?

The Haunted house the kids decorated (with a little help of course). Thanks Grandma Duck for the kit!

The final result from our pumpkin painting. Mine is the brown one. I wanted to test crackle on a pumpkin. It was hard. I wouldn't recommend it.

What a bummer about the aperture!! Ugh! Hate when that happens! Once I had totally messed with my white balance settings and I could NOT figure it out. It took me a while and meanwhile the temperature of the images was totally off! Glad you figured it out!
