Ahh...Halloween. It sucks the life out of you. Fun, but oh so much work. Here's the rundown of October in our house:
We start by picking out pumpkins at Grandpa's garden. Even though he was out of commission past August, he still managed to get some great pumpkins and gourds. Then we decorate the house!
We must dress up for every class or party...here is Quinn at his Kindermusik party. He is Li-Li the lion.
Of course, I make my dance classes dress up as well. It leaves an interesting array of glitter and pom-pom shreds on my floor.
There are the school class parties...here is Parker at his. He is Luke Skywalker. I had a whole carpool full of Jedi Knights. Emi and I felt really safe driving to school.
And then we carve....one of those is the Death Star if you look closely. The puking pumpkin is a family favorite.
We decided to get creative with our plethora of gourds.
Our ward had a trunk-or-treat, so Bill and his Bishopric brothers went as KISS. I tell you, it's kind of confusing to see your Bishop in your bathroom putting on lipstick. This could warp me for years.
Does it get any hotter than this?
I went as the Swine Flu, but my nose broke and I had to stick it on my face with electrical tape I found in Bill's car.
As if we hadn't done enough trick or treating, we had to go out at Halloween night as well. Here's Emi with Jade.
After the sugar rush of 3 trick or treat sessions (I totally recycled candy as to get some of it out of my house), we were all tired......
....and ready for sleep!
Alright, Thanksgiving...bring it on!
