How do you spell F*U*N?

Our Halloween fiesta with the kids and grandkids last night of course! We hosted a family night Halloween party so we can see the kids in their costumes because frankly, when you are six years old, you are really excited about trick or treating in your own neighborhood and not making the trek to Grandma's house so she can see your cuteness in costume! I took 88 photos but I am sure that no one is interested in looking at all 88!

We made Halloween crafts....

We frosted ghost and pumpkin cakes....

The only costume photo where at least the majority was looking in my general direction...

Aww..look at the lil' punkin!

We made mummy dogs..
And had our first (and hopefully not last) pumpkin carving contest.
The competition was intense!

Some people will do anything to get on the internet!



The final product.....the barf pumpkin generated a lot of laughs, courtesy of future dentist.

Jen's amazement and delight when she received "Most Creative Pumpkin" award.

Her first pinata-it was hilarious. She giggled the whole time.

Gettin' down to the business of candy eating right away....

We missed you Jessica & Chris! Happy Halloween!
