Tuesday Stuff

Well, another Halloween is behind us.  Time to strip away the Halloween-flavored decor and leave behind just the fall stuff.  And as I figured, the mad dash for costumes ended as predicted - everything came together.  Even my toddler wore his ears and tail once he was on the trail 'o candy.  It was crazy-nice weather for us here - mid-60's at treating time, no snow, no rain, no wind.  The kids loved it.  It was also the first year where the kids didn't go out as a group.  DH took the three boys around our street, then came home with Matt, while the other two took off on their own, coming home only briefly to off-load accessories they didn't want to carry anymore.  Kallene was with a couple friends in another neighborhood trick-or-treating there, and I would suppose, doing things that are best left unthought of and unknown.

Earlier in the day there was a pumpkin carving party which resulted in three additional pumpkins to sit on the front steps;  Blue's Clues, a Graveyard, the Hulk (who was more shrunken after a week sitting carved), a  scary face and a Vampire/Joker looking face.  All carved by the kids.

What eventually left for trick-or-treating was a Greek Goddess (without her laurel-leaf headpiece), a lion (with his tail and ears), a very beat-up yet victorious soccer player (you should see the bruises and bandages) and a WWII Army-man.

They all came home with enough candy to last well into next year so I'm sure they won't miss a few pieces here and there.

A super shout out to Sous Chef Jennifer H. whose 2-page layout appears with this month's PageMaps examples.  Find it HERE.  Way to go Jennifer!!
