Happy Halloween!

We had a really fun Halloween this year!  We started on Saturday night.  We went to Syracuse City's pumpkin walk.  The kids really enjoyed seeing all the Jack-O-Lanterns.  For some reason, the girls LOVE anything pineapple, so they were super excited to see a pineapple Jack-O-Lantern and also Minnie and Mickey Mouse.  Lizzy was brave enough to get her picture taken with a Jedi Storm trooper, but Rachel wouldn't do it.  She said, "I don't want to get a picture with the robot!"  Then, today, our friend Celia came over with her 5 kids, and we made some fun treats and crafts!  We made meringue ghosts and eyeballs, and chocolate pretzel spider candies, and the kids also made foam pumpkins and homemade crayons.  Then we watched a Scooby Doo movie, and then... TRICK OR TREATING!  Just one costume was not enough, so the girls wore Alice in Wonderland and Princess costumes during the day in the house, and then switched to nice warm cat costumes to go out trick or treating.  It was such a fun day!

The favorite Pineapple pumpkin!

Minnie and Mickey Mouse!

Lizzy and the Storm Trooper - she actually knew these guys were Star Wars characters - which surprised me because she's never seen any of those movies!

Lizzy in her Alice in Wonderland costume!

All the girls dressed up!

Lizzy and Rachel show off their crafts: foam pumpkins and homemade giant leaf crayons.
