Halloween Fun!

We had the beginnings of our Halloween festivities today.The children dressed as "community helpers" (listed as not associated with Halloween... you be the judge). They dressed as a Pre-K teacher and an Air Force pilot (he's holding a prize he got at school).

In preparation for our ward's Halloween party, we carved a pumpkin—soon-to-be award-winning—for the contest. Trying to break from simple faces or scary themes, and wanting to try a modern twist, I broke out the hand-held drill (Dremel-esque) and tried to represent our temple: the San Antonio Texas Temple (link).

In case you have trouble seeing it, here is it side-by-side with a photo (which I share at great peril, because you can see the areas where I flubbed it!).

At the ward party, the children wanted to dress as their favorite super-heroes: WordGirl and Captain Huggy Face from PBS Kids (link). Here they are side-by-side-by-side (by each other and next to the picture of the characters) in costumes we made ourselves(!):

Finally, here is our not-yet-born's first Halloween costume: his Mommy!

In case you're concerned that we're posting these on the 29th, we have a fun family party planned for tomorrow, so there may be more photos (but they might just make it to our family website (link), we'll see...).
