I hope you all had a great Halloween! We had a fun day. Although we got a late start to our festivities, we still managed to hand out candy to trick-or-treaters and Wyatt also had a great time trick-or-treating and visiting his Great Grandma. Audy gave me the idea to make the icing for these homemade Oreos orange. She also suggested using pull and peel licorice to make little legs so they would look like spiders, but Joel couldn't find any, which was fine with me since I HATE spiders. Seriously, I sometimes have hallucinations at night about spiders. I have also been known to wake up in the morning with a wad of paper towels beside my bed because I was "sure" that what I "saw" was real. Too much information?
If you've never had homemade Oreos, you've gotta try them, they're the best. And they're super easy too. Here's the recipe that I use:
2 packages Devil's Food cake mix
2/3 cup vegetable oil
Mix well and roll into 1" balls. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 min.
8 oz block cream cheese
1/4 cup margarine
4 cups icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Mix together and place dollop of icing in between two cooled cookies. Press cookies together to evenly distribute the icing between the two cookies.
Here are a couple pictures of my little Halloweeners. I think I put Wyatt's costume on three or four different times because he kept taking it off. Most of the kids that came to our door got to see Wyatt in his diaper instead of his costume. Luckily he kept it on while he was trick-or-treating.
I love Old Navy for their pajama sales. I think Weston's jammies were $2.97 last spring. Makes me feel better about the fact that tonight is the only night he will probably wear them, since I was too lazy to take the tags off until today.
