These things are fun and fun is good.

The month of October, is all about spooky/silly/sugar high fun! We filled our month with what else? Crafts, costume making and enough sugar to put us in sugar shock.

Coloring wooden masks... toddlers and markers = bathtime.


Made the Littles new blankets to drag around. His pirate themed and hers well, smiling breakfast foods? Yes, because she dances around ever so cutely singing "There's a party in my yummy, so yummy." ( Except hers is more like "so yahhhmee" This comes from the kids show Yo Gabba Gabba, that shows smiling happy food dancing in your tummy. I think the writers of this children's program have been partaking in some uncontrolled substances.

One must take a break from crafting to refuel and redecorate the dining room with chicken noodle soup.

Who me?

The latest in hair fashion accessories.

Sidewalk chalk "makeovers".

After the makeover... gorgeous dahhling.

Halloween is also the time to break out every orange and black outfit you can! I love my jack-o-lantern necklace! It is an October wardrobe staple year after year.

And these heels... well okay, so they are not Halloween related. I bought them in October!
They make me feel super hero-ish. I love the electric blue color.

 Pumpkin painting...

Big sister supervising...

Pumpkin carving...

Biggest Little's Hello Kitty pumpkin and my Lorax pumpkin.

Speaking of Dr. Seuss's Lorax... check it out... this year's costumes.
I give you, Thing 1 & Thing 2 escorted by the Cat in the Hat!

Abbie was an old pro. This year, she boldly marched up to doors past spooky spider webs and glowing pumpkins to ring doorbells and say "Trick or Treat!".  Baby brother was not sure what was going on... but he quickly caught on to the fact that once a doorbell was rang, people would come out and throw fistfulls of sugary goodness into your bag! 

After a few doors and realizing they were scoring big in the candy loot department... they were quick to get to a door and to try knocking on it if no one answered the doorbell quick (At one point I had to tell them "No!" when they started trying people's doorknobs! It was the candy driving them to do it.)

After 2 hours of trick or treating, it was time to take two tired Littles home, clean out candy and scrub the blue from their blond locks.  Between the candy & the chocolate pretzels (What'd you think I was going to let a holiday pass without them?), we have enough sugar to keep us high for weeks!

October 2011 is done.
Next up... Turkey Day!
