Candy-Corn Sugar Cookies

I just love this time of year and I'm always looking for cute little snacks and recipes to make for Halloween parties and gatherings. This year at work, I'm on the hospitality committe and the committee decided to throw a little suprise Halloween party for our office. I found this idea on Martha Stewart's website. Her recipe called for making the sugar cookies from scratch, but since I had limited time, I decided to go to the store and get a mix or something a little quicker and easier. I found this great tub of sugar cookie dough made by Nestle at my local Schnucks for $4.99. So I decided to go with that and I'm glad I did cause I was able to make lots of cookies and it was so easy! :-) Here's a picture of them. For the Martha Stewart recipe, just click here.

Our church toddler class Halloween Party

My sister and I teach the toddler aged kids class at our church. Last night we had our Halloween Party for them. We had a lot of fun. We colored a Halloween coloring page, played pass the pumpkin and we cut out little bats (using the cricut) to hide around the room and whoever found the most bats won a prize. We also bought some really cute cake mix and cupcake papers to make some cute Halloween cupcakes for our treat. The kids had a great time and so did my sister and I. Here are a few pictures from our party.
