Halloween celebrations

We made an adorable monster fruit salad to bring to our homeschool Halloween party (and I'm not trying to toot my horn by saying it was a huge hit at the party!).

Our monster fruit salad-- saw this on Pinterest and had to give it a shot!  So super easy!! We carved
a giant hole with teeth at the bottom of the melon, scooped out the melon, cut up all the fruit and spooned it coming out of the mouth.  We then used toothpicks, orange slices and half- grapes for the eyes.  I did cut a slice of the melon off the bottom to make it nice and flat for standing up too. 
We packed up some art supplies, paper goods, and treats, donned our costumes and headed out.

The boys played musical chairs, limbo, pass, bowling, and had fun running and playing.  We had a huge turn out for our party and the boys met a few more homeschoolers.  They played with moon sand and made a few craft projects-- Ian's skull drawings came out amazing!  We were reluctant to leave, we were having so much fun.

A group shot-- look at all the amazing costumes (many moms and
kids made theirs)

Moon sand was a big draw for all the kids

eyeball/ spoon race!  (just like an egg race but with small eyeballs
one mom managed to find!)

How low can you go?

We ate a quick dinner, got back into our costumes and headed out for what I was hoping would be a great, fun night!  We were heading to a Halloween laser light show.  We went last year and loved it.

The boys saw so many of their friends, listened to some fun and funky Halloween music and watched all the neat Halloween images projected onto the screen.

Perfect way to end the day!
