Halloween 2015

I realize I’m pretty late to the game on this post, but for good reason! Actually bad reasons – we’ve been plagued with a lot of sickness the last 5 or so weeks, mixed with lots of working overtime, lots of exhaustion, teething, work travel, back injury, you name it.

But we were determined to enjoy Halloween! We started with our annual tradition of painting mini pumpkins and carving a big pumpkin. Otherwise known as: everyone loses interest so I carve the pumpkin myself. At least this year we learned that you can’t put a carved pumpkin outside in this heat or it melts. So it stayed inside and rotted. Maybe next time we’ll just paint pumpkins…

Harper had a fall festival at school and dressed in her favorite Rapunzel dress and had lots of fun making crafts and playing with her friends.

We were in the thick of all the exhaustion and sickness right around Halloween. Finn had a bad cold, then I got a bad cold, then I had to work overnight the night before Halloween and the whole day of Halloween, right up to trick-or-treating time. So I was exhausted and practically lost my voice from all the coughing.

But the kids looked darn cute in their costumes and had a blast trick-or-treating with our neighbors!

We ended up with a lot of leftover candy that we enjoyed for weeks!
