Trick or Treat!!

Last night was Trick-or-Treat in our neighborhood. Ry's still prefers to give out the candy instead of actually going to get candy. We made up 225 candy/glow-sticks to give out and then I had another 2 bags of candy bars, about 50 pieces, so about 275 total. Gone in about 45 minutes. It's amazing how many kids (and I use that term loosely, as the age range that came to our door was between 0 and 65) showed up.

Ry was dancing to help advertise that we had candy

Notice Chica in her lobster costume. Always a big hit with the crowds.
We did finally go to a few houses, but not many. He got his fill of T-o-T pretty quickly.

He's almost 6....

Today I am taking cupcakes into Ry's kindergarten class to celebrate his birthday. Here are the cupcakes I made.

I am pretty pleased with the end result. I only had a few minor issues that no one but me would even notice. I can't say I am a pro at making the chocolate frosting for the cupcakes that W posted on the cooking site. My frosting turns out really crumble-y and doesn't stick to the cupcakes very well. Fortunately with these cupcakes you cover them with dirt (aka cookie crumbs) so you can't tell, and it tastes good so that's what really counts right?
Anyway, hopefully the kids will like them.
