Trick or Spontaneously Combust

I know, I know.  I'm supposed to post LTTMMSE on the first of the month. 

But yesterday was HALLOWEEN!  And I dressed all the kids up as characters from TOY STORY!


And Scott carved this really cool PUMPKIN!


And I dressed up as a WITCH!


And it was all just so EXCITING I couldn't wait a day to post about it! 

If my kids were in charge, "Halloween" would be renamed to "OMG HALLOWEEN!!!"   I think they almost exploded last night from all the excitement, sugar, and layers of clothing stuffed underneath their costumes.  The shouting, the screams, the running - I'm making it sound like a bad horror movie, but I promise you they were having the time of their little lives.

But it's all over now, and it's time to move on to Thanksgiving.  Which is a holiday I feel really bad for, what with its sensible pilgrims and cornucopias of fruits and veggies.  Halloween is a tough act to follow.

I'll let it slide for a day or two :D J/k
They look so darn cute in their costumes and can imagine that they were just as excited as my little maniacs. What a fun night!!!

Look at your cute little Toy Story characters!!

We had to really bundle our kids up because it was only 33 degrees out that night! Brr.

Love the pumpkin and you made such a cute witch!

To be honest, I am glad Halloween is over. Thanksgiving is my favorite. Let the cooking and eating, mostly eating begin.

Your tights! Your kids! Your husband's amazingly talented carving skills!

Can you adopt me? I'll cook the Thanksgiving turkey and make it so festive Halloween will be but a dim memory, with the only reminders being hidden stashes of chocolate around the house.

I can not WAIT for LTTMMSE!

Your kids' costumes are so cute!

Halloween is a tough act to follow. Good thing Thanksgiving has pie, and trips to see grandparents and cousins!

I love your witch tights! And that flaming skeleton head is something fierce! I only wish I could have gotten Jack the dog Buzz costume!

Your argyle tights keep you from looking too scary! The kids all look so great. You're lucky they won't argue about being themed like that. Wait til they get older....

Fun, fun, fun! I wasn't a fan of Halloween until I had kids, but now I'm sold.
