"Real" Halloween

We had some happy girls on Halloween.
 They loved their Halloween surprise from Cathy.

It rained on Halloween but we still ended up going trick or treating. I think the saving grace was that it wasn't cold. Brad and the girls spent about TWO hours collecting candy. Lizzy and I hung out with some friends, inside, by the fire, dry. :) 
I didn't put any effort in to their costumes on Halloween since it was rainy and I had a spooky dinner to get on the table. (I think we looked totally awesome in our family costume and was a little disappointed they didn't want to do that for "real" Halloween.)

Natalie being Cinderella, Emily being a little witch (whose hat would not stay on) and Camille being a not as little witch.

The girls got SO much candy.
You can see how wet Camille's pants were after trick or treating.

 For our spooky dinner this year we had: mini mummy meatloafs, mashed potato ghosts, spider leg bread sticks, pumpkin jell-o (okay it was really just orange), candy corn fruit parfaits, and witch brooms (asparagus.)
Note to self: Mashed potatoes are much harder to pipe than frosting!

This year they vote to paint instead of carve pumpkins

Oh how my kids wish they could live at your house instead of mine.

I think we're moving to New York, so WE can live at your house instead of ours.

Val That might work because we only allow girls and boys named Brad to live at our house!
