For Halloween this year, Lily went as Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter. It’s great to see her picking characters/costumes that are unique and fun. Luna’s brave, smart, creative, and not like any one else.
This years Halloween pumpkins include a cat, OMG face, Spiderman, Harry Potter and a cat-a-corn (cat unicorn). This year we tried a few different techniques on a few of the pumpkins like scraping the outside of the pumpkin and not carving it all the way through.

Looking pretty good this year. Mine’s the overly happy one, the wife’s the scary looking one, and Lily’s is the scared looking one.
For a little Halloween fun, my wife put together a fun lunch for Lily and I. We weren’t told what we were getting, we were only allowed to pick Halloween themed food from our menus. Here was our Halloween Mystery Menu Ghastly Ghost Zombie Eyeballs Bat Wings Swamp Grass Edible Swamp Tombstone Ghost Blood Blood […]
