Another Halloween has Come and Gone

And it isn't even Halloween yet. I think Mother Nature was mad that we weren't celebrating on the right day! It was a very soggy holiday. 

We started our day with pumpkin carving. I didn't carve one this year. I love having carved pumpkins but it isn't my favorite activity.

Right around 4:30 p.m. the clouds started rolling in. It didn't take long before is was raining. It was a lot of rain too. By the time we were ready for trick-or-treating it was really coming down. Jenna came over to join us. We weren't sure we were going to get to do anything so we held our traditional photo shoot indoors. 

Here are the girls. 

Even though Emma is an angel she wanted her make-up to be more fairy like.

Andrew as a devil with really bad teeth and a scary goatee. 

The whole family. I am so glad that Paul dressed up again. It isn't much but it's something so I took tons of pictures of us! 

Oops my eyelash is coming off. 

The girls decided to brave the rain. 

Andrew was hesitant but decided to give it a go.

They didn't get very far. 

Finally they went out again. I don't like to get wet so I stayed home to hand out candy. I had planned finger foods for dinner. These are my favorite things to eat. I could graze all night long. Yum. 

They rain slowed down so I offered to drive them around for a little while. 

The rain stopped, they found some friends and off they went. I went home to play with my camera outside since I finally was able to.

Paul's pumpkin is so cute.

Emma had made a leaf grave of some sort.

The kids made it home pleased with their haul and I got our traditional outside picture. 

The kids always love to see their pile of loot. 

Andrew was done. His goatee was itchy so he pulled it off. It was really stuck on there!

How is this not the best holiday ever?

The kids get so excited by the full sized bars. Heck I would too.

Even thought the rain was awful and it was the wrong night, it takes a lot to bring us down on Halloween. We all ended up having a good time. The kids are all snuggled up watching a movie and I guess I better turn out the light. We haven't had anyone come up to our house in the past 30 minutes. I guess we are really done. Only 366 days until we get to do it all over again. I wish it were sooner.
