This Halloween will be one that we will never forget. We had a nor'easter here in Ct. and we lost power on Saturday night. We just got it back today- Wednesday! It has been crazy. Since our whole town was 100% out for Halloween we could not trick or treat. Instead we got together with some friends and made the most of the evening as best as we could WITHOUT POWER. I didn't even have time to make the trick or treat bags to attach to the wreath like I did last year and wasn't even sure that anyone would stop by the house. Instead, I quickly tucked some candy inside my Halloween wreath and put some LED lights into our pumpkins. I am pretty sure no one came by ;( On a brighter note I discovered these over sized pumpkin marshmallows at the grocery store. I made them into a fun treat by dipping them in some chocolate and placing them into a cupcake liner filled with some cookie crumb dirt. I twisted a piece of licorice into a stew and voila, a cute and easy treat. I also used the marshmallows on the side of a mug of cocoa for my kids after they came in from playing in the first snow of the season. I hope that you all had a wonderful Halloween and that you had the opportunity to eat, drink & be scary!
