My husband did a great job of carving pumpkins with the kids. If you click on the photo, you can get a better idea of how the jack-o-lanterns looked -- they turned out great! Note the small pumpkin to the left, he carved a bat as a tribute to our furry friend.
Trick-or-Treating was great fun for all:
The Skunk, Princess Presto, Bob the Builder . . .
and Dorothy with Toto!
The Day After
As soon as the kids finished breakfast, they immediately started eating and sorting candy. My theory on Halloween is this: let them eat the candy until its gone. Allowing them to eat x pieces each day only makes the torture (whining and begging) last for weeks. If I let them eat as much as they want, the candy will only last for about 3 days. By the way, the candy that is on the table is only about 3/4 of all the candy they received!
