Here's Audrey and Carson before the church Trunk-or-Treat last Friday. Tinkerbell and mustache-less Mario (he refused). Dill thinks he's going to convince Carson to wear the hideous and way-too-huge mustache that came with the costume tonight. All I have to say to that is good-freaking-luck.
My in-laws host a yearly Halloween bash for the whole family. I think I've even blogged about it before. Anyway, this year was one to top all the rest with so many fun, spooky-themed foods. We also carved pumpkins, which is a newer tradition for the family party. As you can see below, we went all out and created a "Foote" pumpkin. I drew the footprint and Dill carved to his heart's content. The foot is my go-to design when my creativity is waning. It's always a crowd-pleaser, considering our last name.

We had a great time as usual, but the kids were beyond pooped and still haven't fully recovered from the sugar rush Grandma provided. Oh well -- at this point, they're pretty much going to be sugared-out until after Christmas! Might as well embrace it.
