Halloween Family Crafting!!!!

 Well, time sure flies!

Here we are nearing the end of October!

It's Halloween time once again!

A few weeks ago I had my two daughters

 and my sweet little grand girl for a sleepover!

We had the best time decorating a huge batch of 

sour cream cut out sugar cookies that

I had made and baked ahead of time.

This is just a small sampling - had every tray I owned
all over the counters and table!

Oh, my word, was it ever a fun time! 

These pics don't do the cookies justice at all. 

We had colorful leaves, pumpkins, jack o' lanterns, apples -

 and my eldest even frosted some purple "poison" apples!

My youngest came up with the idea of flipping an apple upside down to

make skeleton heads! My girls are so clever thinking outside the box.

(They truly are real artists.)

Unfortunately none of us thought of taking a pic of us

 decorating these cookies. Boo. 

We had a really nice end-of-season barbeque that ♥ hubs grilled,
and after clean up we painted sugar sculls!

(Excuse rl mess in kitchen with all the dishes and towels drying)

Just look at these beauties!

(The sugar sculls aren't bad either, heh heh.)

Here is Evelyn's (my eldest above right):

Here is Katie's (youngest, on left in group pic):

You may notice that they both painted a gold tooth.

So cute and clever.

Here is mine first draft:

And same one, after adding a few more embellishments.

I sent it to my college niece because she is one of
my very favorite Halloween pals.

 She also loves color and so I painted it with her in mind.

I forgot to take a final pic of it so I asked her to send it to me
so I could share/document.

Last but not least here is little Vivian's!

Hers was different from her momma's and more 
distinctly girlie, having one wearing a pretty tea hat.

She painted one side dark and spooky (not shown)
and the other side added pink. ♥

She has it now hanging on the nob of her wardrobe.

Pink by day, dark and scary by night.
She has such a fun personality.

Next post I will share some really neat Halloween
decorating my daughters have done,
 as I no longer decorate for the holiday.

I will also be hosting a nice give-away very soon.

I pray everyone is staying safe and healthy!

As always, thank you for your visit!
