Halloween Ho-Down

Well first of all I've had to set up a new blog.  My original blog was working out well for me and then all of a sudden it quit showing my updates on the few of you who have me on your blog lists.  This meant that my readership of 3-5 went from 0-1. I couldn't have that.  It's important for me to know that someone out there is checking out my cute grandkids from time to time and maybe even leaving a comment here and there.  So that's the reason I've had to start a whole new blog from scratch. (not fun!)  I would however like to encourage you to go back and see my latest posts on the other blog so you don't miss anything

So on with the topic: Halloween Ho-Down!

I have to admit that Halloween has never really been one of my most favorite  holidays, but since the kids all love it I decided to break down and throw a party!  My party was originally going to be a simple affair but Kylee quickly set me straight on that, and added to the MeSs or should I say fun.

We became "creepy cupcake creators"

After the kitchen was cleaned up, I'll have to admit I was quite proud of ourselves!
We used them for our "CUPCAKE WALK"
where everyone came away a winner.

It turned out to be a nice enough day to be able to carve our pumpkins outside.

I just loved the way Tanner described his pumpkin (which he carved completely on his own) "it has two little eyes, a little nose and a BIG mouth."

I'm telling you, Luke has skills! You can tell he's proud, and rightfully so!

No get together would be complete without food and Kylee's Spooky Punch...



  1. Love the post! That stinks you had to start all they way over but you did good. I think you may have gone the extra mile because it looks as though my background has changed. Either a ghost did that or someone named...YOU! Thanks ;) I like all the pictures! Our little party turned out great! Can't wait till next year! Love ya

  2. Cute post! You guys always do fun things as a family. I wish I lived closer to my family so we could do things like this. You have the cutest family! I loved seeing the pics in your front yard... they took me back!

  3. Congratulations on your blog's new resting place! The party was great fun, you've always known how to throw a great bash! I would like to request one more thing, a close up shot of the smart dressed man's killer stash!

  4. Oh dang! I totally forgot to take a picture of her stash! Dang it!!! Next year!

  5. I will have to come clean...I have been stalking your blog for a long time!! I don't leave comments so you won't know!! that you know I want to be invited to go to Gardner Village next year when you all dress up like witches!! I could be Glenda the GOOD WITCH!! Quite frankly...I should just get an itinerary of all your fun social events!! You all have alot of fun!!

  6. Hey Connie! I too look at your blog {I even posted a comment once I think :)} Anyway, love your new blog. I even put a link to it on my blog, hope that's ok.

    Love your family! Looks like you had tons of fun. You guys are so darn creative--makes me angry :) haha.

  7. You are a great blogger! I'm so glad to know you participate in this crazy world. Maybe Lynnett should learn from your example and create her own;) It was great seeing you at the sealing. I just told Kylee I got some great shots... I just need to mail them out now. Take care!

  8. Thanks for the comments everyone! Kylee, thanks for the plug. Kaydee, no trash talking on my blog! Lynnett, you're welcome anytime. We'd love to have you. Ashlee, I can't wait to see the pictures. I'm so glad you were able to do it. Annie, I'm glad you linked to my blog. Now I'll do the same to yours:-)

  9. I love reading your blog and looking at all the pictures. Its great to know that Conner belongs to such a wonderful family. We love Kylee and are grateful to have her in ours. The sealing day was very special. We always enjoy being with your family. You truly know how to put on a Halloween Party...the cupcakes looked pretty spooky and delicious along with the pumpkins. Like Lynnett maybe some of our family could join you for the witches night out. Looks like alot of fun.

  10. Connie,
    Cute Family! I want you to know that I check your blog out and have fun seeing how adorable your grandkids are! You guys do such fun things!
