Halloween 2014

Halloween has come and gone but I did want to post about it.  We had a fun filled October decorating everything from the house to the car to the husband!  (Always a good sport)

First the house.  Kristin gave me the idea last year to do the monsters in the windows.  Since I have six small windows  on the front of my house it was fun and easy way to bring on Halloween.

Next on the schedule was the ward Trunk-or-treat.  Since I opened my big fat mouth about the horrible food last year I was put in charge of dinner for 200.  That ought to teach me right!?  I settled on pulled pork, mac n cheese and baked beans.  We had a great turnout.  The kids all chose to be minions so Bjorn and I were Gru and Lucy.  It turned out really cute, if I do say so myself!

The decorating and dress up didn't stop there.   Oh no, we still had the school parade where the principal wad also dressed as a minion.  We dressed up the car for the trunk-or-treat and we carved our pumpkins for the porch.  Then last, but certainly not least,  we actually trick-or-treated around our complex for 10 min.  Once around the loop is 47 homes, half of which are not home but the other half give most generously.  The kids had a great Halloween holiday.

I am starting to dislike Halloween, thanks to trunk or treats where there is no need for them….
Cute monster windows and family outfits.
