We had some friends, some neighbors, ad my brother's family over for the big night, and I got NO PICTURES. This is because I was having so much fun and paying attention to people, not apps. But also? Would it have killed me to snap a pic of all the kids all together?? No. No it wouldn't have. I didn't even get a Halloween cousin pic!
But! Desiree sent me these:
I wanted to make these cute little leaf foxes with the kids, but it rained, so I couldn't count on finding real leaves. Gah.
Then Joanne's had already closed out all of their leaves to make room for Christmas stuff, so I had to buy these giant sunflower garlands (for $2 because all of the fall stuff was already 70%=20% off on OCTOBER 30) and cut off the leaves
She was off the damn wall. I hope it was just halloween excitement, but I am for sure going to ask at conferences.
Look how excited they were on the way to school!
And I was excited in the house! Getting all the candy ready!
Some houses kicked it up a notch and gave out movie-theater boxes of candy. SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT FOR NEXT YEAR.
Speaking of next year, blog is my witness, Ben and I are going to have a Halloween party for grownups.
Also, I decided to make blueberry muffins (to go with the Costco pizza, Costco queso, chips, and veggies I threw on the counter) and PRO TIP: The nest time to spill blueberries is when you are in a hurry.

And, finally, SO MUCH CANDY
