Halloween Festivities

For our “mommy/son date” on Friday, Ethan wanted to carve pumpkins.  This really isn’t something I enjoy because it requires creativity and makes a huge mess, but I couldn’t say no to him, so that is what we did.  Luckily it ended up being more of a family affair, so I had help with the clean up and more supervision of the knife usage.



Ethan did a great job for it being his first time doing pretty much the whole pumpkin himself.  The hardest part for him was drawing a face on the pumpkin.  He couldn’t decided what he wanted.


Poor Tybee wanted to try it too.


This is a very scary sight…three knives within reach of Ethan.  He handled it well though. Especially with James’ tutelage.


Mine is on the left and Ethan’s is on the right.  I think we did a mighty fine job.



Saturday was our ward Trunk-or-Treat/Chili cook-off.  I wish I had gotten better pictures of the kids in their costumes, but it was a crazy day.  We had two parties to go to, food to make for both, and friends that came from out of town to join us.  It was a lot of fun though and the kids were adorable.  Tybee’s costume was so big for her, she may even be able to wear it next year…or maybe at least Fasching.


I hate these pictures because I look horrible, but it’s all we’ve got.  So please ignore me and check out the kiddos Smile.




Last night, for Halloween night, we all stayed in and had caramel apple fondue and watched a movie.  Living in Germany we don’t get any trick-or-treaters and Ethan made out with enough candy from the trunk-or-treat to last him a year, so we didn’t need to go on base to do that.  It was a fun family night in.
