Happy Halloween!

Our Halloween has been pretty mild here today!  Two boys under the weather gave me a reason to stay home and catch up on the crazy that life has been for the last week!  
In Iowa, we have a way of doing things ahead of schedule.  Our Harvest Parties at school were last Friday, we carved pumpkins on Sunday night, and Trick-or-Treating was last night!  We are all costumed, partied, and candied out!
Here's a look at the fun!
I love getting to be the party planner for Cloe and McClain's classes!
Cloe's class had fun with a Fear Factor Theme!  There were seven crazy stunts for the kids...thankfully no one puked!  They really got into chanting:  FEAR IS NOT A FACTOR FOR ME!   Great kids!

 The kids drew their own designs on the pumpkins, Cody carved them, and I roasted the seeds!  

Pretty cute jack o'lanterns here!

 It was a beautiful night for some Trick-or-Treats!
We had fun walking around to our neighbors' houses, telling funny jokes, and scoring scads of candy!  We love our neighborhood!  (the little old lady giving our hot chocolate...she's our total favorite!)
Our little Sumo Batman needed his own picture!
He stayed nice and toasty in his snowsuit stuffed into a costume!

Hope you all had a Happy Halloween, too!
