Halloween fun!

Halloween is one of my favorite times of year.  It's a wonderful combination of mischief, creativity, and neighborliness.  Sprinkled with liberal amounts of chocolate.  From the left:  Anna as Rapunzel, Ben as a dragon, Jack as Captain America, and Charlotte as a witch.
"Mom!  I have to have a green face so that I will be so spooky!  My friends will not even know who I am because I will be SO SCARY!"
"Mom, I'm not dressing up as Captain America.  I AM Captain America."

Anna got this Rapunzel dress for her birthday last week and was thrilled to use it as a Halloween costume.  Multi-tasking bonus!  :)

Ben actually looks like he has a healthy body weight in this picture.  Poor thing.  He got lots of candy from the adoring neighbors though!

Matt didn't go all out on the pumpkin carving this year--just three--but the kids were great helpers, scooping pumpkin sludge all over the kitchen, while Matt crafted his masterpieces.
