The Great Pumpkin

As part of rounding out our Halloween festivities, we watched a marathon run of It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. And by marathon, I mean over and over! Still, it's one of those things you just have to do as part of the holiday. Lunch was inspired by the show, of course!

Orange & black tortilla chips, pretzels, celery, red bell pepper, Rotel dip, mandarin, cucumber, roasted seaweed, and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

We also had fun with dry ice tonight. I loved this stuff as a kid. We always had it around to play with because my dad is a pharmacist, and they packed everything on it at the time. I wish I could properly take pictures of it, but one of my favorite things to do with dry ice is fill a kitchen sink full of hot water, toss a couple glow sticks it, and add the dry ice. Turn off all the lights, and watch the bubbling, glowing brew! Too fun. Of course, adding dish soap is the next best thing. We did both, and had a blast!

Course, kiddo was convinced that the fog actually tickled her feet, and loved sticking her toes in the mist! I think that may have been her favorite.
