Halloween: Family, Kidlit, and a NEW Grammy Pags Story - The Woozler's Halloween!

Pirate Papa & Pirate Grammy with our little
peanut pirate granddaughter.  Aargh!
Hi Everyone - Happy Halloween!!
Here's what's in this blog:

  • Halloween Family Fun
  • Halloween Dinner Menu & more ideas - adding a few pics from our 2016 Spooky Halloween Dinner!!
  • Not-so-scary books for kids - a list by Dena McMurdie 
  • Grammy Pags' newest story, The Woozler's Halloween - currently available for Kindle

In our family, we get a kick out of dressing up for Halloween! Actually, we love to dress up - period!  We've always had a dress up box in our house - one for our kids when they were little, and now we have one for our grandchildren.  We make up little plays and stories, go for treasure hunts, and just pretend. It's lots of fun!

Halloween has always been a "non-scary" time for our kids and grandkids.  We decorate pumpkins, we might go to our local corn maze, we always pass out treats - with NO tricks, and for many years, we had a good old "Spooky" Halloween dinner.

The pirate theme is popular in our family, but we also have
faries, wizards, knights, and Peter Pan.
Our Halloween dinner menu might consist of the following:

Pirate Stew - chili or chicken noodle soup (this year it was Broccoli slaw!)
Fish Scales - potato / tortilla chips
Swamp Slime - chip dip / humus
Swamp Juice - fruity punch or cider
Skeleton Bones - cut up veggies
Googley Eyes - deviled eggs with black olive
And a Treasure Chest Dessert - usually gooey donuts with lots of sprinkles! (This year, it was "Dracula's Donuts!")

Our kids have the best time making up the names for our dinner delectibles!
