Well, Halloween 2015 is officially in the books. This year was so much fun, even though PB still doesn’t “get it.” We had a blast doing all things “pumpkin” leading up to Saturday night, and I look forward to doing even more next year.
We started off the week with Trunk or Treat at our church. It was one of those moments that I may or may not have over committed, and had a big time “trunk or treat fail.” If you google trunk or treat ideas or look them up on Pintrest, they are all awful. Very homemade looking and nothing that fantastic. Well, now I know why. It is VERY difficult to decorate the back of your car and make it look halfway decent. I’m not even going to show you the picture because it was so bad. But – the kids looked cute, and PB actually kept his headdress on for a good 30 minutes! This was the only picture I got of them all night because I was too busy saying, “Do you want to stick your hand through the scarecrow’s nose and get some candy?” I had to say that, so the parents would know what our car was decorated as!
On Friday night, we carved our first pumpkin as a family. It was very last minute, so all we had was a bad knife. Next year I’ll be more prepared and actually buy one of those carving kits. This picture cracks me up – both kids were really into it! PB was very intrigued by the candle burning on the inside.
Then on Saturday – we had the best time. Our little tribe was a little thrown together. I planned the kids’ costumes well in advance and loved them. Then, at the last minute, as in 30 minutes before walking out the door, MDub decided he wanted to dress up as well. Some face paint and shredded khakis later, he was an Indian like the rest of us. We walked our neighborhood way too early and then headed over to some friends. We ate pizza, had the most amazing cake pops, and watched the kids play all night.
And just for fun, here’s our little giraffe last year and then the Walther Tribe, family of four, this year. Crazy to think this time last year, I was six months pregnant with AB.
I hope your Halloween was as fun as ours, and hopefully you’re still eating your kids’ candy!!
