trick or treating





we got together with friends and neighbors this Halloween and potlucked beforehand, then all the kids went out together with the Dads to trick-or-treat. There were about 15 kids total, which included almost enough football players for a whole team! Imagine opening your door to a bunch like that!

Even though he was a Hawkeye, Matthew still wanted to carve "hook 'em horns" into his pumpkin. Go figure. My freelance drawing was a bit off, but he was thrilled with it, which is all that matters. Ben carved a Hawkeye into his (shocker), but one piece broke as it were a bit too thin. Abby just wanted a funny face.

Anyway, they got more candy than we know what to do with, and we always throw it altogether at the end of the night.....which benefits Abby, and Mom and Dad, the most. After making the way around the neighborhood we came back home to hand out candy here, and I think Abby enjoyed that more than being out. She got so excited with each ding-dong to run to the door and see the kids. good times....

those are awesome punkins! and quite a booty, too. 15 kids would be daunting for the ones handing out treats!
