Halloween

October 30, 2011Devon No Comments »

For Halloween this year we went to a haunted house and made sugar cookies. First I’ll tell you about the sugar cookies. Making sugar cookies was originally Jay’s idea — and we had this fantasy in our heads. Mixing up the dough, rolling, cutting, and baking was a snap. Hilariously, icing the cookies was tedious and unfulfilling. For some reason, I remember icing cookies a lot more fun when I was younger. I guess we had it in our heads that we would make almost 3 dozen cookies and ice them like you can buy at a gourmet bakery — HA! As you can see in the photo, we stopped after 5. We figured it was time to stop because Jay ended up sitting on the kitchen counter pouting. Funny, we thought it would take us back to our childhood, but not like that.

Now, the  haunted house was good. We went to “SCREAMS” a Halloween Theme Park in Waxahachie, Texas. SCREAMS has 5 haunted attractions set in the woods — kinda’ like a Renaissance festival. In fact they even have art vendors, food, and activities like a Renisance festival. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any pictures because it was so dark. But, it was good enough I would go back again.
