We had 2 whole days of Halloween fun. It all started on Friday with a visit to the H1N1 flu vaccination clinic. We saw a few people dressed up there (and it was 8am!). After that we headed home to make treats to take to our little kid Halloween party that afternoon. They’re ghoulish brownies. They look like little ghost faces.
They look super cool, huh? Note to self, though….don’t try to double a recipe you’ve never made when you are taking them somewhere! I cut my timing too close & these weren’t cool by the time I needed to cut them. The kind of fell apart and weren’t nearly as cute when they were cut up. Oh well….it was totally my fault!
Evan dressed up as a lumberjack this year for Halloween. We borrowed an Elmo costume but Evan wouldn’t go near it. He loves Elmo but he doesn’t want to “be” Elmo. Lumberjack is a super easy & cheap costume. Plaid shirt + an eyeliner beard and you’re set!
We headed to Shawna & Kohen’s for a party. I don’t have any pictures to upload b/c I left my camera & my witches hat at Shawna’s. I usually manage to leave 2 or 3 things at her house every time I visit. Doh!
After their party, we headed home. I threw my back out some time in the morning while hurrying to get to the clinic for our shot. That coupled with the shot meant that I was NOT feeling too hot. I crashed on the couch for a few minutes to try to regroup so that we could attend the party at our friends house. It was up in the air whether we were going to go or not but in the end, I rallied. We had a GREAT time. So many fun costumes & great times. I’m glad I went.
Dewey kept leaving the door open at the party so I locked him out. This is his best “please let me in” face.
Saturday morning we had a lazy morning of pancakes & playing. Everyone was completely bagged so our whole family took a 2 1/2 hour nap, which NEVER happens around here! After nap, we carved our pumpkin & then we dressed Evan up for trick or treating. He went trick or treating last year but he didn’t really “get” it. This year he LOVED it! We were afraid he wouldn’t say “Trick or Treat” because we couldn’t get him to say it before we left. After he was out, he was a champ. He said “Trick or Treat” and “Thank You” at every single house. Everyone loved his costume & he got loads and loads of candy. He was so excited he was practically vibrating. I wonder how it’s going to go tomorrow when we have to explain to him that “no, you can’t go trick or treating again tonight”.
Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!
