Halloween 2009

For some reason this Halloween didn’t seem quite as hectic as usual – nice! The Sunday before Halloween we went to Steve & Vick’s house for the annual Halloween Feast of Blood and Guts Casserole (Lasagne), witch’s broomsticks (breadsticks), sea monster salad with purple sea monster goo dressing (ranch with purple food coloring), and some cute spider cupcakes and yumming pumpkin cake. BUT – I forgot my camera! Dang it all! I’ll have to see if Steve got some pics he can send me.

On Friday the kids wore their costumes to school and had the usual parties and stuff. Syd had her 1st Jr. High dance, which she ending up enjoying more than she thought. She was really worried it would be really boring with no one dancing. Friday night was the annual Halloween Carnival at the school. We got there pretty late, but it was actually nice and didn’t seem as crowded then. (Maybe I’ll do that again next year!) The kids had fun playing games and parading around in their costumes.

Saturday morning we carved pumpkins and made roasted pumpkins from the seeds. Saturday afternoon the sun came out and we went to the straw maze. The weather was nice, which was good, since it took us over an hour to get to the end. I must just not be a logical enough thinker to figure out a maze or something. We were watching some people go through in like 10 or 15 minutes, and we finally had to ask some people coming through for the second time how the heck to get out! I couldn’t even go back in there and tell you how we got through. It all looked the same to me! Dill kept getting worried that we were going to be lost forever. We thought about going back to the entrance and just being done since we were getting tired of walking, but I was being stubborn and determined that a smart grown person could figure this out. Ha ha! A little lesson in humility for me I guess :)!

We went to the trunk or treat at the church after that, went to visit with Great Grandma McBride, and then came back to our house with family for some chili cheese baked potatoes. All in all a great day! (Except for the straw maze – hee, hee – next year it’s Dad’s turn to take them!)

Hope everyone else had a Happy Halloween!

    so, what did Hailey dress up as???? Sounds like you guys had a lot of fun!!! I love Halloween! We miss you guys. Are you coming down here anytime soon?

    Hayley’s costume was a Twister game mat for the dress and a Twister board for a hat. Just a Walmart costume she found. Don’t know when we might come down. Maybe between Christmas and New Years. What about you guys? What are you doing for Thanksgiving and the holidays?
