Halloween came and went quickly this year...mainly because we've been distracted by the Astros being in the World Series as well as we had a wet, rainy October 31st this year. None of which kept our kids from having a good time and scoring plenty of candy!!
We carved pumpkins a couple days ago...which is always fun and always messy!!!
You have to really dig deep in there to get all the guts out!
Emma said, "This is just so satisfying!!!"
Halloween night we were uncertain if we were actually going out, but the rain didn't stop us in the end! It's our tradition to load up all the kids on the trailer and take them all over the neighborhood...this time we just added umbrellas! The kids didn't even care they got a little wet, though!
The gangs all here!
I'd bought all the stuff to dress Aaron up like Slappy from Goosebumps - it's what he's wanted to be for months (or a biker), but then very, very last minute he said he wanted to be Correa! Hey - who am I to tell them no to that!!! Emma's costume went through many morphs and ended up as a colorful unicorn (she was a unicorn last year, too - just a different variety of unicorn). I love that she just takes all the pieces she loves and put them together - very creative! She did change to hot pink high tops before we left to complete her ensemble!
The rain kept my camera in doors this year...but I am so glad for the few pics I was able to get of our night! After the trick-or-treating was over we ended with a watch party at a friend's house. It wasn't the outcome we wanted for game 6, but tonight it's all over one way or another!
