Happy Halloween!

Today is the day! It's Halloween Day! I hope your Halloween is happy and cozy, and spooky! But not too spooky! I am visiting my mom today and taking some special Dunkin' treats for her and her friends. Then Madison is coming over, and we will watch a Halloween movie with Flynn because, in this homeschool, Halloween is a day off! Dinner is a favorite and easy Cheeseburger Casserole before Trick or Treating and the end of a Happy Halloween season!

Friday night was our Third Annual Family Halloween Party! I am always so excited to see the costumes they come up with. I only knew Flynn's since I helped her with it; she looked so good! I will share the pictures, and then below, I will tell you what they dressed as. Can you guess???

Madison and Nicolas with Draper...

Peyton and Chris...

Rhett and Kyrstin...

And Flynn and her friend Bee...

What makes me the happiest is how much these young people enjoy spending time with each other. And how much they humor me when I get going with my games every single holiday.

Once a teacher, always a teacher!
(And don't mind my fuzzy socks. My feet are always cold!)

I served my cheese broccoli soup, traditional mummy dogs, chips, apple slices with dip, and Hawaiian Punch. Because I am fancy like that. But the star of the show had to be Peyton's homemade chocolate cake!

It was as good as it looked!

Well, I hope you have a wonderful Halloween, my friends.
Thank you for visiting!

Billie Jo

And the costumes were:

Madison and Nicolas: Queen Frostine and Lord Licorice with Draper as Plumpy from Candyland

Peyton and Chris: President Trump and First Lady Melania

Rhett and Kyrstin: New York City tourist and The Statue of Liberty

  6. Happy Halloween! You are all such a fun bunch!! I loved the costumes - but Madison and Nicholas take the cake for creativity!! Lol Looking forward to friends coming over and bring Chinese food for us! (bonus) and I'll have hot cider on the stove, spooky goodies for all and the big bowl of candy to hand out to trick-or-treaters. My kiddos many be grown now - but it's still so fun to keep tradition in some way.
