The Never-Ending (Halloween) Story

Well, we've had our first snowfall, and I thought I better get some Halloween pictures up before we really get in Christmas mode.  Not to mention that my family has been asking for Halloween pictures for a while now... sorry!!  

So here they are... our butterfly and our witch.  They were pretty cute, and they got to wear their costumes quite a few times!  I was looking forward to all the Halloween festivities... at first...

Saturday came, and, though I was already tiring of Halloween, I had everything to make caramel apples, so I thought we better give it a try.  I saw them on a blog and they looked so pretty.  Let me just say that ours turned out MUCH less than pretty...

I think that will be the first and last time we make them... Just looking at all that sugar makes me want to go brush my teeth!

Then it was finally Halloween.  What a long day it was.

we still hadn't carved our pumpkins by Halloween afternoon... so we got out the paint and Sharpies, and I let them go crazy!

scary faces
doesn't this remind you of this?!
Mike, Becca, Bentley and Jackson dresses up as Captain Hook, Tiger Lily (or Lily Tiger, as Chanelle says), Peter Pan, and a Lost Boy - they looked so good!

Then we finally went trick-or-treating.  

Isn't that what Halloween used to be?  Just trick-or-treating?? 

It finally ended.
