Our Halloween, in pictures.
We had a special Halloween dinner of orange pancakes with chocolate bits, strawberries, and bacon to decorate with to turn our pancakes into pumpkins.
William's pancake. His chocolate bits were melting and he was getting pissed.
She was so proud of her creation.
Drew loved her creation, too. As we had to tell William in regards to Drew's pancake - beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Cupcake is ready...
Bumblebee is ready, too. Her costume was allofasudden too itchy, though, so she wore the dress as a skirt with a t-shirt instead.
Dragon Ninja was totally ready. Flip flops and all.
Group shot before we left. Of the 5 I took, this was by far the best and most serious one.
Lauren and me trick-or-treating.
Note to self: Old Navy sweatshirt is very unflattering in shadow pictures.
The bowl of candy - full sized candy - which looked like this at 6pm and looked like this at 10pm. We got ZERO trick-or-treaters this year. Our house is only one of two houses in our cul-de-sac that isn't pitch dark and closed up. We're the house at the very end of the cul-de-sac and apparently people just don't want to venture all the way down here for a little piece of candy. This year I bought big ones so the word would hopefully spread a little and we'd get a few more next year. You know, the whole, "That house gives out good candy, let's go there" thing. It's fun for the kids to give out candy and they don't get a chance to living down here. Oh, well. The trick-or-treating part was really fun and they got loaded up with tons of candy and we saw some friends and met some nice people.
I have not stolen any of their candy yet. I did not have any for breakfast.
I am totally lying.
Now... on to Thanksgiving!!
