My parents flew in for a visit the day before...amazingly they were able to fly through Hurricane Sandy and they were the only flight to land in our airport that day! Here's mom and the kids making "Mummy Dogs" for dinner
This year Eli was a choo choo train! It was his choice and you can't deny that he's the cutest little choo choo train ever! I found the idea, Joe did most of the work making it, and I finished the details. It was a bit more work than we were expecting, but he loved it and the cuteness was well worth the work! The costume was a huge hit everywhere we went that night!
And if that weren't enough we also had a Spider Queen (aka Grammy)! And once again we started the evening trick-or-treating at our church! My parents were there (Spider Queen and Superman)giving out candy! Joe and I were railroad signs to go with Eli's costume. We enjoyed the rest of the night trick-or-treating around our neighborhood. It was a beautiful, warm evening (the kids didn't even need coats)! And when Eli got tired Lily still wanted to keep going so her and I continued trick-or-treating for a while just the two of us
(which was kinda sweet).
Our pumpkins turned out great...we even had a few of them hanging from trees!
Overall it was a fun day of pumpkins, dressing up, and sweets!
