Tea Time Tuesday Halloween Party Edition

Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday Halloween Party Edition…

This week our friends from Joyful Wife Life joined us for poetry tea time. I think Amanda and I may have went a little overboard with all the treats and decorations, but it was worth it to see the excitement on their faces.

Featured Poem

Spooky Tea Time Tuesday rewritten by Roxanne Raiche

Double, double, toil and trouble,
Fires burn, and cauldrons bubble…
Calling all witches, wizards, and ghosts
The Raiche Family will be your host…

Stop on by for a cup or two,
Watch out for the goblin goo…
Spooky Tea Time Tuesday begins at quarter past one
Wear your costume and be ready for fun!

I can’t take full credit for writing this poem… I found my inspiration here, but wanted to change it up to fit our Tea Time Tuesday Halloween Party Edition invitation better.

Featured Recipe

This week Jack decided to make dirt cups. To make your own dirt cups you will need:

  • 1 package (3.9 oz.) JELL-O Chocolate Flavor Instant Pudding
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
  • 15 OREO Cookies, finely crushed (about 1-1/4 cups), divided
  • Gummi worms
  • Tombstone and bone candy


As you can see, we switched things up a little bit and made tiny grave yard dirt cups! We found our candy pieces at Walmart. You can find the instructions to make these yummy treats here.

Our Table

Under each of the children’s plates Amanda and I wrote some questions and Fun and Freaky Halloween Facts. Some of the questions were:

  • Why are pumpkins a Halloween tradition?

  • Why do we don masks and silly costumes for Halloween?

  • What’s with the door-to-door begging for candy? 

     

Thank you for joining us for Tea Time Tuesday Halloween Party Edition.

I think ALL of the children are suffering with gut rot, and may need a visit to the dentist immediately… But we had a spooky spectacular time! Want to see more from our party? I am uploading an album on my Facebook page in just a few minutes.

Tea Time Tuesday Chocolate Chip Cookies Edition

Welcome to Tea Time Tuesday Chocolate Chip Cookies Edition…

There is a briskness in the air that is letting us know that it is truly autumn time. We are in our sixth week of the school year, and we have settled into our routine. With everything going smoothly we had a day full of coziness… Cozy sweaters, snuggly blankets, and homemade chocolate chip cookies and milk! All of these things were a perfect fit for our Tea Time Tuesday Chocolate Chip Cookies Edition.

Featured Poem

Chocolate Chip Cookies by Edward Kofi Louis

Chocolate chip cookies!
In the land of your muse;
Eating and drinking your tea with the muse of your love.

Plain, rain!
Coarsely;
Plain, lain!
With brown sugar;
But, with love in the land of your muse.

Chip, hip!
Eating and drinking tea in th eland of your muse;
Cook, cookies!
With the muse of your breakfast.
Pose, purpose!
With your chocolate chip cookies.

Featured Recipe

This week Kenten made us homemade chocolate chip cookies. To make your own cookies you will need:

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons hot water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips


You can find the instructions here. Since Kenten completed his work before we the rest of us were done, he baked and cleaned everything up by himself. His cookies were perfect, and we were able to eat them fresh out of the oven when they were still warm and gooey (yum).

**This recipe calls for walnuts. We skipped the nuts because I don’t care for them.**
