We started the holiday early by trick-or-treating at Daddy's work Friday. Daddy won first prize in the costume contest for his awesome Captain Hook and Ship. We painted it together as a family for Family Home Evening. Go Daddy! (Make sure to note the 2 week growth on his face). Did I mention that we love Halloween at our house?
Halloween morning we carved a pumpkin together. Andrew drew a design he wanted and Daddy made it for him on the pumpkin.
For lunch we ate pumpkin pancakes. Yum! As we were finishing, we got some surprise early trick-or-treaters all the way from Ft. Bragg! Even Lizzy the doggy was here dressed up as a witch!
For dinner we ate ghost shaped pizzas and apples with pumpkin dip we served in a bowl we made from Ryan's pumpkin. We then made this yummy cookie pizza with candy we received from trunk-or treat. I think it was the start of a fun new tradition.
After dinner we headed out in the rain to trick-or-treat. As a family we were the cast of Peter Pan for Halloween. Here is our Crew!
Andrew as Peter Pan
Ryan as the Tick Tock Croc
Daddy as Captain Hook
Molly as Tinkerbell
and Mommy as Wendy. (Somehow I only ended up in the group shot. Which is okay. My costume was the least interesting. Next year, I am going to be something cool, too!).
***Other interesting facts.
*The ship is made entirely from the tv box and packaging contents from our new tv. The mast is from an old volleyball net.
*We were mistaken for everything from Robinhood, Pirates of the Caribbean, Angel, Dinosaur, and more.
*First prize was a $60 gift card to Tripps.
*Andrew changed his mind a couple of weeks ago and wanted to be a Super Hero instead. We convinced him that since Peter Pan fought bad guys and could FLY that he was a super hero.
