My snerds are obsessed with this silly/hilarious video, but now I can’t help but wonder: what sound does a fox make?
(Since this preview is so small, I suggest clicking the little box in the lower right corner to make the video full screen).
I’m coming out of my blogging hiatus to share a fabulous idea that my son’s school shared with us… the Halloween Fairy! For those of you who don’t know her, she really loves candy! (which means she could never actually look like this, but oh well…) And in exchange for candy, she will leave a special treat of the non-sugary variety like a Playmobil robot. Or a new doll.
Here’s how it works: Halloween night (or the night you go trick-or-treating), the snerds eat a few pieces of candy and then leave the rest out for the Halloween Fairy (like leaving a tooth for the tooth fairy, except we’re leaving the candy on the kitchen counter) and in the morning — poof!– the Halloween Fairy has exchanged the candy for something less tantrum-causing and teeth-rotting.
We are definitely going to do this! Now, I just have to make sure the Halloween Fairy doesn’t eat all the surrendered treats herself… Any ideas where I can donate oodles of candy??
P.S. don’t forget to save the pumpkin seeds from your jack-o-lanterns for a yummy –and healthy– snack. Rinse, dry, sprinkle them with salt and oil, bake for 10 minutes at 425 and eat! And, if you’re feeling ambitious and the pumpkin hasn’t rotted when the ghosts and goblins have gone to sleep, cut it up, bake (uncovered at 315 for 2 hours), scrape out the tender “meat” (discard skins), mash or puree the insides and use for soups, pies, etc.
