The first step to getting ready for
any Halloween is to track down the local suppliers of pumpkins and get
them ready for the big day. Alea and Breck found a little green pumpkin
and knew exactly what they were going to do with it.
After scooping out the (slimier than usual)
seeds, they carved out some ears and had themselves a jack-'o-Yoda all
ready to go!!
When the big night came around, we
were all ready for action - Mom as a pirate, Alea as a spider witch lady,
Breck as a ghost, and Dad as a Jedi (or, as the kids put it, a "good General
There was a whole huge contingent
of kids from the school who came to the apartment for trick or treating
(this picture is just of the first wave - there were many others who joined
us later.Can you find Alea and Breck?), and so we had a lot of fun hanging
out with them and their parents. Our lanterns were lit and scary music
resonated from our apartment.
Of coure, by this time Yoda was looking
a little worse for wear, but it was still a great evening!
