Amara spent the night with us Saturday night and as always we had a blast. This week’s movie was Bright Eyes with Shirley Temple and while I don’t think it was Amara’s favorite, Grampy and I really enjoyed it! Seeing southern California, especially the Valley and the Burbank Airport in the mid thirties was kind of nostalgic in a strange way. We both moved there during the sixties and are so amazed how much it has changed from then to now and this was even more so!
But the best part was this morning. Amara’s Mommy had gotten us a pre-assembled haunted house to decorate. We hadn’t done one of these in a long time and since tomorrow is Halloween we had to do it this morning! While we had some small problems along the way, this was perfect Grandma Kc and Amara time! The first problem was our pre-assembled house had a broken roof. And while I like puzzles I could not figure out how to put the pieces back together again. I didn’t know what to do and we were trying to just put large chunks anywhere and Amara decided she would just make the broken roof part of why the house was scary. We improvised!
She loved making the purple icing.
And eating the purple icing.
Grandma Kc likes frosting!
and eating fingers!
The instructions say that the icing will not be fluffy but will be the consistency of toothpaste, which it was but have you ever tried to frost something with toothpaste? This did not daunt Amara. She decided the icing looked like it was melting and dripping down the sides of the house and that this made it even scarier!
This is Amara’s finished haunted house!
Happy Halloween Everyone!
