Our "Spook"tacular Halloween

After carving pumpkins, dressing up, trunk or treating and trick or treating (in the rain) we had a great Halloween. Jackson and Ayden carved their pumpkins all by themselves this year and both did a great job. Ayden did a scary pumpkin and Jackson a spider..they turned out so cute! We had a neighborhood "Trunk or Treat" complete with chili, soups and stews..it was so yummy. Despite being a darling lion at school Ayden opted to be Darth Vader, Jackson and Landon were still LEGO'S, Ryan was Tigger (thanks honey) and I was Eeyore. It was so much fun and all the little kids loved Tigger, so cute! The boys had a great time trick or treating despite the drizzle and we stopped by a Haunted House at our neighbors the Van Leeuwens...thanks David for scaring the #$%* out of Ayden. We stopped by our friends the Heugly's and ate some yummy snacks, Thanks :) Landon zonked out at 8 and the boys got down to the serious business of sorting their loot. Amongst the mountain of candy we spotted a candy cane and Jackson exclaimed "who gives out candy canes on Halloween, how old is that??" we all laughed. We even found 2 suspect "Chinese" candies and Ayden said "good thing we found them before Landon ate it and died!" *LOL* We have so much candy that I swear it multiplies every time I see it!! We had a great Halloween and missed all those we didn't spook this year. We look forward to next Halloween in 362 days...what will we be???

I was just wondering what you had to bribe Ryan with to dress up like that! That's love, for sure.

Ok, I just watched your slideshow and had to leave another comment. That suspect Chinese candy is one of my favorite treats! It's actually a Russian brand (Joyva), sesame seed treats made in the United States. I buy them in bulk at Whole Foods Market. Just thought I'd put your mind at ease!
