Happy Halloween!!!!!

Why couldn't the Daddy ghost father a baby ghost?  Wait for it...because he had a Hallo-weenie!!! Get it?!  HAHAHAHAHA!

I decided to save this week's update (25 weeks already??!!??!!) for tomorrow because it's Halloween and I wanted to show you some hilarity in photos (LOTS of them).  We were hoping for lots of trick-or-treaters this evening but guess how many we got?  2.  Since I basically bought Wal Mart out of all of their candy, I expect to have gained 20 lbs this week alone when I have to weigh in at the doctor on Friday...we have so much left over and my will power has disappeared...I can't seem to stop eating it.  I think it was partially this nasty weather and partially due to the fact that apparently my neighbors are fun suckers because there were only a few porch lights burning on our street.  Sigh.  Maybe next year!

Anyway, we got in the Halloween spirit last night by carving our pumpkins...better late than never, yes? 

Dan and Layla were really excited for pumpkin carving: 
 Pumpkin guts, ew:
 The inspiration for my pumpkin, thanks to the idea I stole from Steph and the stand and deliver blog and which two people who shall remain nameless (Dan and Meagan) judged me for:  :-)
 
 Time for carving...Dan hovered the whole time and was worried because I'm so clumsy.  Worry wart!
 Action shots...



 Our cheerleaders:
 What Dan wanted his jack-o-lantern to look like.  I have no words.
 Meagan getting in on the carving action:

 Layla got really thirsty...PSYCH!

 Finished products!


 


See the pink inside the pumpkins?  Hilarious story: I somehow had no tea lights and we therefore had to use candles from Bath & Body works as our pumpkin lights.  At least our front porch smelled delicious!




I feel that I need to preface the next set of photos.  Normally, we do something for Halloween (i.e. go to a party).  When we were discussing what we wanted to be this year and couldn't decide, my Mom says, "Hey, we still have the pumpkin costumes we wore when I was pregnant with you!"  Suffice it to say, one look at these things and we had to have them.  They are hilarious - straight 80's.  My Dad called to tell us that we had to "wear some of those black leotard things and a black turtle neck underneath."  I think I broke his heart when I told him no one wears turtle necks anymore.  Anyway, obviously Layla had to have a matching costume.  I put Katy to work to find a picture of Mom and Dad when they wore these 28 years ago, but she didn't have any luck.  If I find any next time I'm home, I will post, not to worry.  In the meantime, enjoy what will surely come back to haunt us at some point:













While we were anxiously awaiting trick-or-treaters who never showed, I was busy in the kitchen working on the following:


Yum, homemade chicken noodle soup and grilled cheese.  I die.  Hope your Halloweens were as awesome as ours was!

Until tomorrow...
