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
