Tonight was one of those low key, family oriented evenings that I love so much. Cory wanted some chocolate chip cookies so the girls and I baked some. But instead of using chocolate chips, we had a bag of these teeny tiny Hershey bars, so we made chocolate chunk cookies. They were delicious! If you stop by I'll give you some, with milk :)
Afterwards we lit the orange candles on the table for ambiance, pulled out the construction paper, scissors and glue and made Halloween crafts 'til our hearts content. We've all got our own paper chains, smiley spiders, pumpkins, and Pac-Man ghosts. The photo is a sampling of our work. We're pretty talented aren't we?!
The best part of course was just being together spending quality time with each other. I love a homemade evening!
Construction Paper: $2.00 at Wal-Mart
Glue Sticks: $.49 cents at Target
Safety Scissors: $.96 cents at Wal-Mart
An evening with my family: PRICELESS

I want some cookies and milk! I would also take some scones. Actually anything that is sweet and made by you is fabulous!

Those are some pretty fabulous crafts! I think I need to invest in some construction paper. Josie is really into cutting-actually its more like snipping into teeny,tiny bits-but she still has fun. That's the point, right?

Mmmmm chocolate chuck cookies! I would so be there, if I could! So be there!
Your crafts are beautiful. You've inspired me. I'm not necessarily a "crafty" mom, but you've given me the gusto to just give it a whirl. It sounds like a great family fun time. Thanks for the inspiration!

I wish I could let go a little more and just sit and enjoy making a paper/glue mess with my kids. I am slightly OCD though so it hasn't happened. Maybe I should schedule it:)
We did make chocolate chip cookies yesterday together too! So I don't have be jealous of that.
