1st shift of carving
Lulu refused to stick her hand in the pumpkin and pull the gunk out.
2nd shift of carving
Halloween morning about 6:50 am!
A Halloween breakfast
Oh these girls and their love of princesses and all things pretty and sparkly!
Zombie girl...yuk! The sad thing is she got a big black eye in her soccer game Saturday and all the kids at school today joked that she forgot to take her zombie make-up off! Actually the make-up was less frightening looking than the real thing!!!! Poor baby!
The neighborhood gang all ready to set out!
I love this "holiday"! The kids love this "holiday"! So much fun and so simple really. This year was a little different as my 15 year old was not present for the pumpkin carving or trick or treating because she had basketball tryouts. Oh my heart! I guess I should rejoice in the fact that it lasted as long as it did. Those are just the "bumps" you have in a family with a large age span. We carved in shifts and Sam was sweet enough to carve Lulu's pumpkin and then wait and carve with Julia later that night. And Julia did catch up with us trick or treating and took the little girls to the doors. She got to dress up the next day at school where the sophomore class dressed as zombies. I even had to take a Halloween picture of all 5 in the wee hours of the morning before school in order to get all 5 together! Whew...didn't I say simple "holiday"?
