Halloween Happened

We got so lucky! Mark was scheduled to work from 3-7:00 PM on Halloween, but when he got there, he was clearly not needed. So he got to come home and really DO Halloween for the first time since we bought this house.

That's right, this was a our 3rd All Hallows Eve here but Mark had not had good ones. In 2010 he had a toe amputated a few days before, and last year, he had teeth pulled.

Mark and the kids decorated outside and carved pumpkins. Then Mark donned an all black costume and sat outside waiting to scare unsuspecting trick-or-treaters. I heard some lady gasp too!

To top it off, the kids got to trick-or-treat on their own for the first time.

This is the pumpkin AJ picked at the patch. He and Mark collaborated on the face, Mark carved it and stuck the screwdriver in it's head.

This is Camryn's puking jack-o-lantern!

All the jack-o-lanterns! (and fog machine)

The porch. Can you see the bat dangling? It flew around.

I think it's funny that my 6 1/2 year old can get one of these costumes, but he cannot watch the movie.

As for me..... I forced the kids to eat Gorton's fish fillets for dinner. Figured it was a good source of protein. Then I hid inside tweeting and crocheting.

Later, I ripped out my crocheting and started over. Mark and I got caught up on The Walking Dead, and after the kids were in bed, we watched Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Pretty good Halloween, I'd say!
