A yummy Halloween

We baked Halloween cookies earlier this week. Chloe had a blast, mostly because I gave her free reign of the rolling pin, cookie cutters and dough (not normal for perfectionist me). While the process naturally took longer than usual, it was quite amusing watching Chloe attempt everything on her own. She was reluctant to let me "help" until I told her she couldn't eat any more cookie dough. Not long after that she lost complete interest and had me finish the batch on my own.

Yes, they taste just as good as they look! Then again, I'm a sugar cookie fiend, and could eat an entire batch in a matter of hours.

Oh so proud of her pumpkins, kitties and moons!

It's been a fun and festive week, and there's still so much left. Tonight we're heading to our church carnival/trunk-or-treat, and tomorrow we're getting together with some friends for lasagna, more trick-or-treating and scary movies! Pictures of our "scary, not funny" spider to come.

Chloe looks so grown up...I can hardly believe it. Those cookies turned out so pretty! I think sugar cookies are my favorite. I wish I was closer so I could share with you...and see Chloe, the scary spider!

You're so good to let her do so much on her own. It looks like she had a great time. Since I never got around to making my Halloween cookies I'll just be waiting for mine in the mail. :)

She really does look so grown-up. I love all the photos, especially that last one where you can see how blue her eyes are. Each photo carries its own special charm. How fun! It's wonderful of you to take that extra time to let her go at her own pace. I love how she lost interest and went running off! So cute!

Happy Happy Halloween! Can hardly wait to see your "scary, not funny" spider! A tiny, beautiful arachnid of your very own.

Love love love,
Mama/Gma Jill
