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!|

|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.
