Family Fun Night

When I found out I was pregnant with Zoe and all through her pregnancy, I had serious issues with buying holiday items on sale after the holiday took place.   We didn't find out who Zoe was, so there was no buying cute clothes and accessories for our 1st bundle of joy.  Instead, I bought random holiday items that would be so fun to have now that we would have children.  One of these items was Halloween cookie cutters. 4 years later...we finally used them : )

We made up the batter for our yummy pumpkin, cat, bat and ghost shaped cookies and then it had to stay about 1 hour in the fridge to harden up.  During this time, we watched The Little Mermaid.  Zoe was ecstatic!  She has been begging to watch it and I thought a family fun night would be the perfect time to have her first viewing.  It did not disappoint her and we have watched it every day since.

 Once the batter was ready, we paused the movie and cut out our cookies!

 Into the oven they went and we finished up our movie!
Mommy and Daddy did most of the decorating but everyone enjoyed a cookie before bed....and I might have had a couple more after they went to sleep.  They were so good!

A successful Family Fun Night....Halloween Style!
