This Is Halloween. This Is Halloween.

In short, this Halloween season was the best.
 
We took the kids on their first ever haunted hayride (Narls loved it, Em not so much).
 
There were many an evening spent with candles and TWD and Beetlejuice.

We met up with friends at our town's Monster Mash family Halloween party.

And snuck in spiked hot chocolates for our annual trip to Crossroads.

Indulged on many festive foods & drinks.

And watched Em and her besties do a Halloween-themed flash mob dance at the Farmers' Market.

A friend and I bought (and stuffed!) 28 plastic pumpkins for our kiddo's second grade class party.

 
Clay and I spent Halloween morning jetting between our two favorite little people's Fall Festival classroom parties.


 
And then we spent THE COLDEST & SNOWIEST HALLOWEEN NIGHT EVER trick or treating. Seriously! In. the. snow. My fingers were froze despite being tightly clenched around a steamy mug of a caramel vodka hot chocolate so I only took two pictures that in no way even come close to the amount of snow that was falling. It was cold. And snowy. I can't reiterate that enough.
 
But fun. Oh, so much fun.

October's Favorite Things

1. the annual walk-a-thon at my kiddo's elementary school
2. the dog who thinks she's a real kid

3. watching this boy play soccer
4. and watching this girl read her books

5. my sonshine
6. the kitty who can sleep anywhere in the whole house chooses the dog's crate

7. these two, every day after school, waiting for the bus to drop off the kids
8. the fifth graders leave little notes of inspiration throughout the kindergartener's classrooms; I found this one particularly inspiring

9. spending time with this guy
10. these two where they really belong

11. a double rainbow across the street

Happy Halloween

By pumpkins fat and witches lean
by coal black cats with eyes of green
by all the magic ever seen
the ghosts will rise on Halloween.

Pumpkin Carving is the Best.






 
All was well & wonderful until the Charlie Brown show ended and I had the wonderful idea of watching Coraline because someone on my facebook posted about how great it was and Narls is like two years older than our first attempt at watching it and it should be ok now.
 
Nope.
 
We made it about 25 minutes farther than we did two years ago and the night ended in tears from Narls (I told you I didn't want to watch this movie ever again in my life!) and tears from Emerson (I want to finish it! This is the bestest movie eva!) and a fight between Clay and myself because what did I expect would happen anyway and I shoulda just listened to him in the first place. 
 
But hey, at least our pumpkins look good.
