Now that our girls are getting old enough to really enjoy Halloween, we've begun some traditions of our own. Of course, we always carve pumpkins, this year enjoying warm enough weather to carve them out on the deck (although we miss going to the pumpkin patch)...

...we went to a haunted house, made Halloween sugar cookies, made elaborate My Little Ponies costumes
|Readily going into the scary clown's mouth! I'm not sure Jack'd be that brave.|
...watched some Halloween classics (think Addam's family and Nightmare Before Christmas), made festive felt shirts....
...decorated the house, went to our church's Trunk or Treat, trick or treated at the library...
After seeing so many friends and the girls enjoying the generosity of others, we came home, warmed up, and went right to bed.

This is Halloween. And we love it.
