When we took Jane on her date out to dinner a few weeks ago at Gardener Village, we had forgotten that they were doing the Witches Night Out and we just happened to be there on one of those nights. Jane loved her date and came home and told the kids all about it and they asked if some time during October if we could go see the witches, and if we could go when it was dark because they thought it'd be more fun. Well, it wasn't actually that fun at dark, and we went on probably the busiest night ever. There were literally thousands of people! The music was loud, lines to go in anywhere were long and nearly everyone was dressed up in witch costumes (or other costumes) and it was hard to see anything over all the tall witch hats.
Once the kids and I were together, we quickly walked to where we were supposed to meet Scott and we waited maybe 2 minutes before we spotted our van driving over to us.
Once all were safely gathered in, we drove to Kneaders and got each person a pastry (they are 50% off Saturday nights after 8) which was what we had originally planned on doing since we knew there would be long lines at Gardener Village and overpriced items.
I introduced Elisabeth to pinterest about a year ago and she has done some cool things with it since. She planned her Harry Potter birthday party which was awesome, and this past week she made this fun Halloween spider web out of a lawn and leaf bag,
she made these witches with the little girls using their hands for the body,
Once we had a lot in there I put a plastic grocery bag over the top, stuck it in the freezer for an hour,
and then when I took it out they were all dead. I let it sit out for about 10 minutes then brought it outside and dumped the contents into the grocery bag, tied it up and threw it in our outdoor garbage.
