We took the boys trick or treating. B was a skeleton, K was a fire-fighter (I made his costume) and FI and I went as Charlie Brown and Snoopy (I made our costumes, too). Hunter (the dog) went as a pumpkin - orange t-shirt, pulled tight so it didn't dangle (or get peed on) and the extra held with a rubber band on top to look like a stem.
After trick or treating, we had a Halloween-themed dinner. Roasted Ghosts (mashed potatoes shoved through a pastry bag and roasted), mini-mummy pizzas (english muffin pizzas w/mozz cheese cut in strips to look like bandages and little pieces of celery for eyes poking out) and toothpick pumpkins (tortillas rolled with mushed squash and cream cheese with a toothpick holding them together and spinach to look like "leaves"). I made sugar cookies cut out like jack o laterns (with faces and all) for K's kindergarten class and we had some of the leftovers for dessert. Yum!
The kids had a ball and so did we. :)

Lots of people talk to animals.... Not very many listen, though.... That's the problem.
