Here's a quick run-down of our Halloween festivities.

First, we picked out a pumpkin and did some school-related activities with it.  Then it was time to carve.  All the kids picked their own tool to help them get the goo out.

Including ladles 

and a garlic press.

Ali has always enjoyed this part.  She just digs right in there while Cade asks, "Is there any way I can help do that without getting dirty?"  He has issues with texture.  Sorry, bud.  Sometimes we just have to get down and dirty.

Unfortunately I didn't take a single picture of the finished pumpkin.  What kind of crazy mom am I?  One that is pregnant and missing some brain cells I guess.

Then it was time to dress up and go trick or treating.  We had a little lion, an Indian (with real feathers from our turkey) and a princess.

She LOVED wearing the hood on this costume.  That made me happy.  :)

Yes, Mom.  This was my Halloween costume from about 20 years ago.  Don't look closely at it, because it's pretty worn in some places, but Ali was thrilled to wear it!

Can you see the eyelashes on this girl?  I know I'm a little biased, but I think we have a future knock-out for a daughter.

Here's Cade displaying his awesome bow and arrow skills.  Without the arrow.  Because I told him that was not a good idea.  He is good at shooting them, though.

I didn't get any pictures of all the cousins together because my battery on my camera died right after I took the kids' pictures.  And my back-up was dead, too.  Again, I'll blame it on pregnancy.
