Halloween 2011

The days leading up to Halloween are always busy.

We always squeeze in an afternoon of pumpkin carving.

There are last minute details to finish up on costumes (or possibly sewing the whole entire thing).

I always sign up to bring treats to school parties so that means running out at 9:30 at night to buy strawberries for my dipped strawberry ghosts. No new photo of these as they are a repeat from last year.

But we got it all done and we had another lovely, exciting, fun and dry Halloween.
Pumpkin carving on Sunday afternoon. (You are getting a glimpse of Reagan's costume here as she had just come from a Halloween party)

As you can see Cooper did have a finished pumpkin but the carving didn't go so well for him this year. That's why you see no photos of him as he is working. The back of his pumpkin was kept at the back as it was better kept unseen, but it all turned out in the end and he was happy with his lion design. The big boys did pretty much all their own carving this year with only a little help. Taggart and Reagan however just pick their design and then it is up to Tony and I to execute. They keep themselves busy with all the scraps of pumpkin, a knife and a cutting board and carve and cut out little designs of their own.


Taggart as Hiccup.

This is Tag with Hiccup. For those who don't know, he is the main character of "How to Train Your Dragon", a childrens book turned movie.

Reagan as a Cave Girl.

Hudson as a DJ.

Cooper as Crazy Football Dude (his words).

Tony looks very excited to be the carver in the first photo (not)! Love Hudson's costume, must have been difficult to source the stuff to put it together:) What's with the handcuffs??? Lovely! Leni
