Happy Halloween

Eric and I invaded our friends Ivan and Dawn's house for Halloween last night. They live in a residential area and were expecting trick-or-treaters. Dawn and I decided that in expecting trick or treaters we better decorate the place and dress the part. So we decorated her entry way like a witches home/apothocary and put gravestones and spiderwebs in the front lawn. I tried to get pictures of every aspect of our creation but the reality of it is that it rained pretty much all day, and it rained hard! It was difficult to go outside and take lots of pictures without my camera getting all wet, so here are a few of the highlights.
We ended up dressing in lots of layers because it was so chilly outside and we sat infront of the open door. We also brought out her laptop and watched reruns of Halloween episodes of various tv shows to entertain ourselves between trick-or-treaters. We got about 40 kids total and most of them were dressed really well. I have never really gotten to dress up and give out treats and it was a blast! Thanks to Ivan and Dawn for having us.
Eric got around to carving his pumpkin on Halloween night, He went the route of making his pumpkin puke his own guts, so he didn't even have to clean it out. But I think it turned out pretty cute.
Though, I can't help but giggle when I look at the pumpkin because he looks like he's laughing so hard that he's puking out his guts...
Happy Halloween everyone, I can't even express how sad I am that it's over. But I guess I'll have to wait till next year, and I've got Christmas coming up to occupy myself!
