This is going to be the best Halloween YET!

Halloween is going to be a BLAST this year. Garrett is really looking forward to it. My mom is going to be here. Its going to be so much fun!

Garrett chose his costume, and has had fun wearing it around the house (he's going to be a knight). We spent a whopping $3 on his costume-gotta love the Dollar Store!

He was excited about the bat glasses, but not impressed with the fact I wanted to take a picture.
Carving the pumpkin last night. BIG pumpkin!

Summer was intrigued . . .
Garrett picked out the design he wanted and Brad helped him carve it. He picked a few favorites, but in the end a simple "scary face" won.

He was so proud of the finished product!
Summer, on the other hand, was not too sure about it . . .

And then she spent the next half hour trying to blow out the candle.
Work has been crazy busy, and this was the first night we had as a family in well over a week. Lots of fun plans for the next few days-Garrett is having a Halloween party at school, and there are about 101 activities to choose from to keep us busy this weekend. Best of all, I have convinced my son of the existence of the Pumpkin Fairy, and he is more than willing to trade his candy for a few special surprises. :-)
