For Halloween this year I decided to make gingerbread houses. I miss decorating them with the kids each Christmas, and find the excuse not to because mom make trains for them. So I decided to do Spooky Houses at Halloween instead. I saw possibilities in all the candies. My favorites had to be the disgusting rats.

I should start with the kids having Friday off of school last week, so in the morning we went to the pumpkin patch. The kids had a blast and got filthy dirty. We met Brittani, Britany, Christi, and a bunch of other people there. The kids were also thrilled because Kinz and Micah were over that morning and were able to go with us. Then, in the afternoon it was decorating haunted houses time with the Allredo's and Kaylee. The kids had a blast and I enjoyed the house filled with the smell of fresh baked gingerbread. The kids favorite part, I believe, was all the candy to eat (sugar rush). The crazy thing is I want to do it again for Christmas. We'll see though once the craziness is upon me.
