Today was pretty low-key with the main Halloween event being pumpkin carving! The kids and I helped Matt clean out the pumpkins and he did the majority of the carving himself. Sam gave him some help on our polka-dot pumpkin (solely because a drill was involved). I think that may have been the easiest pumpkin we've ever carved. Matt made up for it though with the stellar job he did on our pumpkin face. I gave him a design I liked and he made it ever better than I thought possible!
Preparing to get dirty ... They liked dressing as "ghosts" and "angels."
What is it about boys and power tools? I could not pull the boys away from the drill. Meanwhile, the girls were using acorn tops as tea cups ...

The finished product!
Well, after the weeks of hoopla, the big day finally arrived. The kids had a blast trick or treating and I must say that four kids definitely bring in a lot of candy! Everyone got to have some candy before bed and they were so worn out that they fell straight asleep. Now I just have to figure out how to ration this candy out so that we don't have a bunch of hyped up kids on our hands!
Hope everyone else had a great Halloween as well. Time to start planning next year's costumes! Any ideas???
