Halloween Fun

Here are my kiddo's in all their halloween glory. Bad picture since we had to do them inside. It was pretty rainy. Mitchell was Ham from the recent movie, Space Chimps and Avery was a 50's their a name for this? She saw this outfit at the store and loved it. She looked so adorable.
Since it was a rainy and cold morning saturday I thought, why not start the fun with a batch of my mom's pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. Warm things up a little. I had never made them before...but i will again. They were so yummy.
Chris helped the kids make a plan and then walked them through the steps to carve their own pumpkins this year. Cause i don't know about anyone else but we always ended up doing it. This time the kids did a great job...daddy did help but not too much. Look how hard Mitch is concentrating. He has the thinking tongue out. :o)
Avery was working really hard scraping out the junk on the inside. SHe thought it was "totally" gross and wanted to have no part of it. Mitch on the other hand thought that was the coolest and grossest part of the whole thing. He revelled in every second of squishing it through his fingers. You can see by Avery's face what she tought of it all.

They were so yummy? So you liked the cookies? Cool.

The costumes are great! Avery looked very pretty and Mitchie looked pretty awesome.

I remember Halloween in New York was usually cold and rainy, My Mom always fixed us Chili and crackers for dinner. Mitch, looks like you are enjoying yourself and Avery, just let Mitch clean yours out next year. Your Halloween costumes were great! Glad you had a good time.
