Halloween 2016

Sadly, the (very short) window I had of coordinating the kids' costumes has closed.  We had an Alice and a Lightening McQueen.  As I was unable to convince Rob to be the Mad Hatter, or Ben and Rob to be Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee, we weren't able to do a family costume.  We finally decided on Rob being Lightening's pit crew and myself being the Queen of Hearts for a fun costume party right before Halloween.

The kids each picked out pumpkin and the design they wanted carved into it.  As always, Rob did a great job carving the pumpkins.  I'll stick the the seed roasting.

We continued the tradition of the kids trick-or-treating at my office, then headed home to get ready to go out with the neighborhood crew.  The kids had a great time and amassed a ridiculous amount of candy.

After about a week, the Switch Witch visited our house, taking the candy and leaving $5 Target gift cards in it's place.  Let's just say the Switch Witch is NOT a favorite person around our house.   Avery has all sorts of plans for thwarting said witch next year including:
hiding her candy in her room
setting the alarm
locking the doors
