Happy Halloween

Hope every one is safe tonight trick or treating .  The three dresses you see my daughters wearing are all hand made the blue one is Cinderella (a dress we used in the ball scene in sound of music).  We thought it close enough to be Cinderella even with out the puff sleeves and flounce.  The green tan dress is a peasant dress my children have for Shakespeare week at school that doubles as a Halloween costume and the red Shakespearean costume I made 2 days ago ( 20 hours of cutting and sewing in one day to make that dress.  It will be used for Shakespeare week as well.  It is a little big for all my girls but I figure we have a ton of costumes that fit them well so this is one with growing room.  The nice man in the photo is my husband who I am lucky enough to be married too.  I was dressed up as well in a Shakespeare costume mine was red velvet with gold trim but since I was the one with the camera no one took a picture of me.

New Red Shakespeare dress

I made this dress on October 29th just in time for Halloween.  It is a size 6 adult dress and my daughter needs to grow a little to fit it well as she is about a size 2 to size 4.

This is how I was taught to do this…

Caramel Apples

caraqmel apples I made

Last week for family home evening the girls and I made caramel apples from scratch.  MMMMM so good!  We used this recipe from the Anderson’s that I posted a few years back just cooked it a little longer to the hard ball stage to make the caramel a little more ridged so it would not slide off of the apples.  Place on a greased cookie sheet to cool and enjoy. Please let me know if you make some and if you enjoyed them.
