Better late than never, here I am with my Halloween pictures. I didn't want the holiday to pass without my recording it for posterity.
Although truth be told, I'm glad it's over. For some reason all of the extra clutter from decorations isn't working for me this year. It will all be gone today and it's got me thinking I might really pare down for Christmas this year.
Sweet Hubby always carves the pumpkins. There's a reason I'm not allowed to handle knives around my family during the holidays. I'll give you a small hint that hopefully won't be enough to be used against me in a court of law. Preschool Maddie+washing hands on chair at kitchen sink after making cookies for Santa+Mommy moving steak knife by sink for safety reasons+slipping kitchen chair=wound and permanent scarring on Maddie's shoulder blade. Let's say no more about it.
Of course Emma would have to try to eat the pumpkin guts. She won't eat a cooked vegetable to save her life but is a purist and prefers her produce fresh.
The dog suit. Every year with the dog suit. Every year with the looks of pity from other wives. Every year with me having to do the walk of shame around the neighborhood. It's enough to make me miss living in Miami where it was just too hot to step outside in it.
This was a very cold Halloween. Em actually had to wear her coat over her costume the whole time we were out and only lasted about 45 minutes. I actually think that's perfect. It provides her with just the right amount of candy and keeps me from eating too much of it.
