Black sprinkles. . .



Last week we had our family's annual Halloween cookies family night. I thought that it would be fun this year to put black sprinkles on them. Here are a few reason's why I will NEVER BUY BLACK SPRINKLES again: 1. what a huge mess they were, when I wiped them up it turned into a big green mess. 2. did you see Seth's picture up top, when eaten they turn your mouth and everything in contact with them a green/ black mixture. 3. the cookies really didn't look that neat with them on.
So I think that next year I will try some other black option for decorating.
As for the neighbors we gave them too. . . I had to warn them, if you eat the bats they WILL turn your mouth Black. Happy Halloween!! Aren't we the greatest neighbors. :-)

Such cute photos. You are such a great mom and neighbor, always doing nice things for others! We hope you and the kids had a happy Halloween, too bad it rained.

what a fun Mom you are! I'm afraid I'm not that fun these days. I bought a bunch of stuff to do pumpkin cookies and we haven't done them yet...

HA! That is sooo funny! I would have laughed so hard if I noticed my mouth turned green from the sprinkles! I love your tradition. Next year, I think we'll do it!

I love Seth's black mouth! A grandma would kiss that dirty mouth. It reminds me of the commercial, "Dirty mouth? Clean it up with orbit gum." I want a copy of the family picture to, it is so great. I loved your comment about friends. Family, you're stuck with, friends, you get to pick and choose.
