Our Halloween Night...


Hope you all had a fun Halloween day and night?

My children love Halloween and had a great time making cakes, designing  Pumpkins, dressing up and going out 'Trick or Treating'


The little witch had a few costume changes!!


And then she was happy being a little Hello Kitty devil..


Lots of people make a real effort here, which is lovely to see...


How big was this Pumpkin, lol...

Now the children are set up for the next few weeks with candy and chocolate!!

Linking up with~

How We Carved Our Pumpkins...


Happy Halloween..

Hope your having a fun and spooky day so far!?!

I am just about to go out 'Trick or Treating' with the little two...

Thought I would share how we carved our Pumpkins with you :)


What you need~
  • A Pumpkin or 2
  • A knife, (I knew my Pumpkin knife I've had years would eventually come in handy)
  • Some kind of face designs ~eyes, nose and mouth... either bough, you have drawn or printed off the internet
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Tea lights


What we did~
  1. First we picked out who wanted which face designs and cut them out.
  2. We then lightly stuck them in place onto the Pumpkins.
  3. After they had dried we set onto cutting the tops off the Pumpkins, or should I say I did!! the kids then disappeared and left mum to it!!
  4. Then I scooped all the Pumpkin seeds out.
  5. Onto cutting around the eyes, nose and mouth. I think my son picked the hardest shape on purpose, haha.
  6. All ready to light up when its dark...

Frankie & Benny's #FrankiesFangs Review...


To celebrate the  launch of Frankie & Benny's Halloween campaign #FrankiesFangs, we kindly got invited to try out some yummy food from their menu.  They are inviting customers to share a snap of themselves across the Halloween weekend with the fangs that will be provided at the end of their meal. By sharing to the hashtag, #FrankiesFangs, they will then be entered into a draw to win a family meal at Frankie's!


As we are already fans of Frankie & Benny's New York Italian Restaurants, the only thing we had to decide was which restaurant to have our meal. Saving the ones in our local area for another day, we opted to have a drive to Meadowhall Shopping Centre. Retail therapy and a lovely meal what more can you ask for? We have always found the food here delicious with a great atmosphere and very friendly staff :):)


Quench our thirst. With unlimited refills.


Early afternoon and we always opt for the lunchtime special 3 courses for £10.95  Well worth the money. With the Hungry Kids option even cheaper..

                                       Mmmmmm Burger..



My Favourite part Dessert...

A new one for me as recommended by our waiter Cinnamon waffle crunch



As usual with Frankies everything was spot on. The food is always excellent, fresh, tasty and cooked to perfection. Waiting times are kept to a minimum the ambience is brilliant, the staff are always polite and friendly without being false. Our waiter this time was called Erhan, he was, superb and a credit to the company. 

When you look at the price it is incredible value for money. Maybe next time without the kids a bottle of wine would be in order. Just in case hubby is reading..

Remember if you are there over the weekend post a picture on twitter or instagram with #frankiesfangs for your chance to win....
