Ready for Fall!

My favorite time of year! I love the weather -although we havent seen it cooler than 90 here in Texas yet-, college football (Hook 'em Horns!!), and my favorite holiday- Halloween! I love dressing up still- Matt and I do it every year. We go visit the Halloween Spirit stores at least once a week, and its always a delima trying to decide what to dress as. Last year I was a devil, and Matt was Jackie Moon from Semi-Pro. He won the costume contest at work for Funniest costume. Hot legs!
At home the past few years we have parked it outside with the dogs and passed out candy to the neighborhood kids. We love dressing the dogs in costume. Last year, Cash was a cow, Josie was Snow White, and Presley was a mail man. They were even in a pet fashion show at Old Town Spring, and I cant wait to see what I can find them this year. Any ideas?
I thought making Halloween cookies might inspire Matt to get my decorations out of the attic so I could start decorating, but no such luck. Maybe next weekend.
Got some cute cookies out of the deal though. This was my first time to try my Aunt Bridget's sugar cookie recipe. She makes the BEST christmas tree cookies for Christmas, so I thought we would do the same recipe, just with ghost cookie cutters. Here are the results.. and no these were not done by a 3 year old. Only us.
This little ghost might or might not be wearing a bikini.. She is the ghost with the most..
I got crafty with the toothpick and had some spider web action going on..

I did not get a close up of it, but do you see the UT Texas Longhorn cookie? TOO CUTE! I am proud of myself on that one.
Almost as fun as Easter eggs, and lots more tastier!!
I will be getting my house ready this week for Fall/Halloween. Lots of cute pictures to come!
