Halloween 2015

Our town has a strange annual custom of holding Trick-or-Treat festivities, including a Halloween Parade on the Thursday BEFORE Halloween, beginning at 4 PM.  Having kids all hyped up on candy, and then sending them to school the next day seems pretty much contradictory to me, but it's what we do.

So, we got our Trick-or-Treating out of the way several days ago.  Both of the girls dressed as their favorite characters from their favorite books.

L was Annabeth Chase, from the Percy Jackson series written by Rick Riordan.

J was Hermione Granger from JK Rowling's Harry Potter series.

Today they carved pumpkins with their friend, C.  Luckily we had 3 nice pumpkins from our garden saved for carving.  They stuck to their books, with J carving Harry Potters glasses and scar, and L carving Poseidon's Trident.  C was creative, and carved not only a pumpkin, but an unfortunate apple as well.

It is Daylight Savings time tonight, so we will turn the clocks back before bedtime, and get an extra hour of sleep tonight!

Hope you had a Spook-tacular Halloween!
