Halloween 2013 & Announcement

The weekend before Halloween our neighbors and us threw a party at their place. They decorated it all, made a great haunted house in their garage and organized a scavenger hunt. We were in charge of food. It was fun playing "caterer" for the week leading up to it and scouring pinterest for ideas and turning it in to the real thing! Here's a few pictures of the party and some of the food. Lots of people, lots of fun!

Our announcement that we're expecting!

The night before Halloween we carved our pumpkins together. You can't really do it any earlier because the warm weather rots the pumpkins really quickly. It was super funny watching Adele and Jack dive right in and Cooper being really grossed out by the pumpkin guts. Both boys wanted scary pumpkins and Adele wanted a kitty.

Halloween night we set out to trick-or-treat at 5 and went for about an hour and a half. Afterwards we had the Carlsons and their family over for chile, cornbread and salad dinner with pumpkin pie dessert. The missionaries joined us and we had a yummy halloween feast and the kids ate a lot of candy!

Mike, Sully and Boo!
