Boo-Ya! 2011...

We were a little late getting our Boo on this October. But it's done. And it was fun. Mostly for the Big Ballerina. Cake decorating is really her thing. Me not so much.


She has so much patience for this. Me? One cake pop falls over and I'm ready to throw the whole project in the trash. But BB could do it all day. Who cares if she knows the difference between a Pueblo, a Sioux or an Iroquois? I don't think Cake Boss uses that info on a daily basis.

The Little Ballerina, on the other hand, is more like me. She gets excited by the idea of the project. Starts off strong.

Starts eating more of the ingredients than using them. Watches for a while.

And then moves on to more interesting activities.

Finally, after three rounds of Eddie Veder's Ukulele Songs, the eyeballs...

and the ear wax was finally done.

We were worried it would be too gross to eat. So we asked LB to test one out for us. She took one bite.

And before we could finish asking her how it was. Poof!

I just hope the recipients are as fearless as she is.

What about you? Do you Boo? Want to start? Check out more ideas here.

Ewwwwwww!!!! Those Q-tips are nasty!!!

I don't remember being boo-ed last year (our first Halloween in this neighborhood). Perhaps I'll start the tradition... ;)

Bridget said...

I LOVE it! BB did an awesome job on the eyeballs! What a great idea to use donut holes! And the q-tips...so gross! I have never seen that before! I bet your neighbors loved it! No boo-ing going on in our neighborhood. We're lucky our development even participates in trick or treating. Our area is really weird about Halloween...a real bunch of party poopers for sure!

would you believe that we've already been boo'd this year?! i'm still in shorts and flip flops, so i just can't get my arms around halloween 'til the weather switches - hence we're waiting to pay it forward. i've made those same bloodshot eyeballs before, so fun - i love the way you packaged them up, very clever! and those q-tips?! never even heard of that one, but i love it!!

WOW, super cool! I have only just heard of this Boo-ing in the last week. I'm going to start this in our neighbour hood this year.
You have inspired me, thanks!

Jill said...

Blessings,

Your Boo baskets are cute in a gory sort of way :)

I'm still trying to decide what to do this year but know I need to hurry.

I'm seriously thinking about polling the neighbors and seeing if they want to start the tradition in our neighborhood because this looks like WAY too much fun! Either that or I'm moving into my house down the street from yours...you know, the one with the kennels in the backyard! Yay!

Jen said...

Fabulous fun...oh my...so creative and fun. I love how LB has herself surrounded with pillows. EEEwww...and the bug crawling on the eye balls is perfect!

These are too cute. Our neighborhood used to "Boo" each other but it kind of died off. Maybe we should resurrect it this year!
