Happy Halloween

This year Ariel and Spiderman made an appearance at our house

Ariel loved her dress but HATED her wig

Spiderman pretty much disliked his entire outfit but absolutely couldn't stand the mask

This picture pretty much sums up how my kids really felt about wearing their costumes

When I wasn't torturing my children by making them wear outfits they hated, we carved and painted pumpkins. This year Alexa got a little more adventurous with the pumpkin goo.  Although...she much preferred wearing gloves and didn't want to grab the pumpkin guts with her bare fingers.

I think they did a pretty great job!

We also made giant chocolate chip cookies and Alexa decorated them to look like funny pumpkins.

I didn't capture a picture of this, but I think my favorite part of Halloween was the trick-or-treating.  Alexa did a very good job of saying "Thank you" to everyone that gave her candy and Parker waved "hi" and "bye" to everyone we met.   It was pretty great! 

All in all it was a pretty good Halloween.  And I learned a very important lesson - DO NOT buy costumes with wigs or masks!
