Colors, Costumes and Cookies

Happy Halloween!

Fall is just the worst, isn't it? I kid.

We've been enjoying the Fall colors and the Halloween celebrations! The lovely NewlyWoodwards hosted a family party on Saturday night. We tried to help out the ol' Chicago Cubs.  Clark went as Clark the Cub Bear, Nate was Harry Caray and I went as the cursed Billy Goat. Clark and Harry tried to make peace with the goat but it appears we need more than dorky costumes to reverse the curse! Maybe it would help if I put more than 10 minutes of effort into our costumes. I always have such good intentions and then time gets away from me.


Because I spent way too much time making Halloween cookies. I am obsessed with royal icing.  It's basically edible art and it's so fun.  (It's also messy and time consuming.)  If you're interested in learning, I highly recommend Alison's Cookie Party. It's totally worth the $30 but she also usually runs specials around the major holidays.  It's seriously so fun. (Alison doesn't know I exist. I'm just a big fan of her e-course!)  It takes some practice but isn't terribly difficult. The right tools definitely help. Here are some of my favorites!

Tell me about your Halloween costumes! I always love to hear what people come up with!
