Happy Halloween!

All of this, plus Sweetie's bag, which weighs 6 pounds. (I need to put that in big writing and attach it to her bag whenever I'm tempted to steal candy from it.)

That would be the big finish to our Halloween 2012. Here's what happened along the way:

Sweetie and Mister both attended friends' Halloween parties. Mister broke his costume twice at his party. We went to our church's trunk or treat. (No pics, I was too busy holding all of the kids' winnings and costume parts.)

We carved pumpkins:

I helped in both of the kids' classes for their class parties. I agreed to do these for both classes (60 kids--I had some help, but I did most of the work and kicked myself the entire time. J shook his head at me and he had every right to. What comes over me when I'm at these party planning meetings?)

But I'm not the only crazy. Here's what another mom in Sweetie's class did with a meatball sandwich:

Mister and some of his friends, waiting for their turn in the school parade:

Sweetie, seeing how dry ice blows up bubbles as part of her class party:

And, the costumes! Our elephant, Mary Poppins, and Alien Abduction.

Your kids' costumes are the best! I'm really hoping you didn't knit Henry's elephant head...I'm tired thinking of putting the other kids' together, let alone his!

Lindsay, No way did I knit Henry's elephant. I'm knitting impaired :) I bought it from etsy.
