HALLOWEEN Treat Night w/ The Family

This Halloween my husband and I decided to create a new family tradition that we do to include all of our children. Every Halloween, Sean and I would carve pumpkins, fix a DIRT PIE, and make decorations. This halloween we have added a new twist to an old tradition and it includes Monster Punch, Halloween MONSTER MASH dance off, and a pumpkin decoration competition.

DIRT PIE

Ingredients include: 1 Bag of Oreos
                                    1 cup of Powdered Sugar
                                    8 oz package of Cream Cheese
                                    Mixing BOWL
                                    8 oz box of instant Vanilla/Chocolate pudding
                                    12 oz whip topping
                                    Gummy Worms

  1. Place the cookies into a sealed plastic bag and crush them with a knife or rolling pin.
  2.  In a bowl, mix the cream cheese and sugar until smooth.
  3.  Blend the pudding mix into the cream cheese mixture.
  4.  Stir about half of the cookie crumbs into the whipped topping.
  5.  Layer the ingredients -- cookie crumbs, cream cheese mixture and whipped topping -- in a clear glass dish. Alternate the layers and finish with a sprinkle of "dirt" cookie crumbs on top. Add gummy worms, if desired                                                            (listed on http://www.ehow.com/how_2112101_make-dirt-pie.html)

MONSTER PUNCH

                                                    Ingredients include: 3 packs of Kool-Aid Lime
                                                                           1 bottle of fruit juice
                                                                           Fresh/Frozen fruit pieces
                                                                                                    1 gal Sherbet

Mix all ingredients (in any order) in a large tub, which can hold several gallons. Stir so that the sherbert is completely dissolved. With the exception of the kool-aid and sherbert, as much or little of the other ingredients may be used.

The Pumpkin Decorations can be done with PAINT, CRAYONS, or COLORED PENCILS! It is up to you to challenge your children's creativity! THE MONSTER MASH DANCE OFF is what it is! You have to teach your children this traditional Halloween dance while watching them face-off to the latest dances.
 
I am truly blessed to have the family that I have, and we love how we are blended our families together. You must create traditions in your family structure to help give your children something to look forward too and something that they will continue to pass on from generation to generation. ENJOY!

  1. Check out Nordstrom's policy on decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving...they refuse to do it: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10100206842937275&set=a.583509096315.2198380.38401701&type=1&ref=nf
