Spooky Ghost Pizza

 I saw this cute idea on pinterest to make a pizza with cheese cut out in the shape of ghosts. The original idea came from, but I just took the concept and did my own thing. Here's how we did it: First roll out your pizza dough, add pizza sauce, and any other toppings you like.

Next, use a ghost shape cookie cutter to cut out slices of mozzarella or provolone cheese. 

Place your cheese ghosts on top of the pizza.

 Then clean your hands by licking all of the sauce off of your fingers.

 Finally, add diced olives for the eyes.

 Voila! Spooky Ghost Pizza complete with three and one eyed ghosts!

While your waiting for it to bake, find something to snack on while your mother isn't looking.

This is our finished product. It didn't quite come out like we expected. The ghosts sort of disappeared. I blame it on the leftover cheese that I used to fill in the spaces. Nonetheless, we had fun and enjoyed eating it anyway!

Soccer 2011

This year both boys played soccer. Our games began in early September and will continue through most of October. Wilson had a rough start, but gradually warmed up to it. Davis and the other first graders are the oldest on the team, so I think they have liked being the "big dogs" on the field. Next year, unfortunately Davis will have to move up and he and Wilson will be on two separate teams. But for the time being I've enjoyed watching my boys play together.

Davis seems to really be listening.

Wilson...not so much. Say What?

 Wilson was frustrated. "Dis is too hard!"

 The second game was much better for Wilson. I guess the cooler temperatures helped.

 Silly goose!

 Silly geese!

Good game guys!
