Halloween was SO busy.  We went trick or treating at a community event, trick or treating to the library, a trunk or treat event and actual trick or treating (Ami would've gone all night...but the Idaho wind got to her.  He he.)

Superheroes!  Spidaman and Firestar!

Da da da da!

On Halloween.  Watch out.  They are coming to save the day!

Trunk or treating.  I was Catwoman, and Nick was Captain America.  Nick's costume
was CRAZY AMAZING.  But, I didn't take a picture.  Slacker and my mother-in-law is going to hurt me.
But it was fun.

Pumpkin Carving

Yea for pumpkin carving!!  We had a great time and yes, power tools were involved.  Go team.

Cute, yes.  Kinda dangerous.  Yes.  What is he plotting...
Not afraid of the guts this year baby!

Um yeah.

Pumpkin or gourd?  We don't know.  But it did give an excuse for the drills and saws to come out.

Fall Foods

I love doing fun stuff with food.  Halloween always inspires me to be kinda goofy.  Here are some fun foods that we have done.

Angry Birds Pizza.  He he. :)

Owl Meatball.

Pumpkin Cupcake for School Carnival

Sometimes you have to giggle.

Sometimes my kids make me laugh (alright more than sometimes, most of the time).  But this morning was particularly funny.  We are battling this ....cold that is going around.  Soo we all have 'froggy' voices and coughs.  The kids were sitting on the couch when Robbie went to say something.  It came out scratchy and Nick told  him, "Ops! Looks like a frog is in your throat!" Robbie's eyes got big, and Ami as the all knowing older sibling says, "It's okay bud.  I'll get it.  Pretend my finger is a fly and the frog will jump out to get it.  No frog problem."  Robbie then says. "Kay!" He hops down off of the couch and proceeds to jump around the room, like a frog, saying "Robert!  Robert!  Robert!" (His interpretation of 'ribbit.')  Needless to say granola about came out my nose. 

Gotta love 'em.
