Pig snouts for dinner



The internet is a funny place. In less than 24 hours I had a response from my friend Kristine, the self-described nomad. And with luck I'll be seeing her again soon. This is exciting!

Our Halloween dinner is pictured above. Polska kielbasa and baked beans. I used a drinking straw from McDonald's (theirs are a wider diameter than most) to poke the holes. Quick, easy, and the kids loved it. It was a cool evening, especially for 3 California kids, so daddy took them into the neighborhood early and they came home to a hot bath. From left to right, Spencer as Superman, Garrett as Wolverine from the X-Men, and Evan as a baseball player. We put layers on under their costumes and everybody stayed pretty warm until the end.



And here is one last picture -- Spencer dressed up as Frankenstein for his Halloween party at school. His choices were many -- gotta love that dress-up box!

    I'll have to remember the pig snouts! ;)

    You can admit it...it was downright cold last night. M and T skipped 6 of 12 houses on our block because they couldn't take it anymore.

    The boys look great! :)

  4. The pig dish is cute, just beans and sausages, right?

    It was so cold here the other night I didn't even go trick-o-treat with Henry (made Dad do it). Never know what costume to choose, one year Henry got cooked in one of those furry animal things.

    My computer registered the actual temperature around 19 when we got in from T or T, and the windchill came in around 14. Though it was probably a bit warmer for Jennifer's family because there are great big trees where she lives.

    And that's not a cold night for MN (those come in Jan/Feb), but it was a cold night for Halloween.
