This year Evelyn got to choose what she wanted to be. "A PUMPKIN!!" she exclaimed very confidently. So.. that's what she was. I had great aspirations of making her something, but ended up finding a BRAND NEW costume on Craigslist for $10. Couldn't pass it up!
Here's my sweet, adorable Pumpkin all dressed up:
We usually go to my mom's work, the hospital where I used to work, and to Doug's office on Halloween. Since the 31st is today, Saturday, yesterday was the day to make our "rounds". However, with the flu epidemic and all, we stayed away from my mom's clinic and the hospital and just went to see daddy at work and brought "the guys" (as Evelyn calls his co-workers) Halloween cupcakes, which was lots of fun!
Going trick-or-treating around Doug's office. She was SO shy at first but warmed up toward the end of our visit!Last year Evelyn wanted nothing to do with trick or treating on our neighborhood. This year it was the same thing. Not a big deal to us... we know she'll go eventually! She once again stayed home and helped Daddy pass out candy to the kids.
AND.. if you look closely at the last two pics, you will see Doug's project of the day. He put in a new entry floor and it looks AMAZING! He is going to grout the tile in tonight after the kids stop showing up. Mouldings are going up soon, too! I love having such a handy AND handsome husband!!!
So, now, its 8:30. Evelyn is asleep. Doug is up handing out candy. The cat is whining because we won't let him outside (he is all black... we usually keep him inside on Halloween night). I am blogging and watching my Ducks TROMP USC!! What a great Halloween!!
Hope you had a good one, too!!
