In "Ghoulish" Style

The decorating has begun!!!

I'm sure we will add a few things here and there, but we have a great start. Now I don't want to mislead any one, our decorations aren't very sophisticated. Most of them have been picked up at places like the dollar store, and were chosen by children!!

The "Ghoulish Style" Stylists...

This was a fun change from our ordinary french toast. I didn't have a recipe I just cooked the apples in a skillet with about 2-3T butter, when they were softened I added brown sugar, and a little more butter. I used my usual French Toast method (3-4 eggs, 1/4- 1/2 C milk, 1t vanilla, and brown sugar to taste, dip the bread in mixture and place in skillet to cook). Remove the toast from the skillet and top with apple mixture, drizzle with caramel syrup and top off with whipped cream.

I got this little shirt done on the embroidery machine too...

It didn't turn out just perfect. But, I guess thats what I get for letting a 2 year old choose the designs. He loves looking at the designs on the computer and then waching them stich out on the machine!!!

Fancy That, We're all decked out in "Ghoulish Style"!!!

Your french toast sounds just wonderful, Dee...I'd jump out of bed in a flash it that was waiting for me on the breakfast table! And your children are so cute! They did a super fabulous job of decorating...Mom's creativity must be rubbing off on them. :-)

Children don't want sophistication. They want fun and it looks like they are having tons of fun. When my boys were little we had halloween everywhere...from a pumpkin totem pole at the front porch to ghoulish music playing. Loved that stuff and miss it. We don't get trick or treaters out here....too far in the country. My husband jokes that if a trick or treater showed up at our house he'd drop a $100.00 bill in their goodie bag. :)) Lynn
