Actual Halloween

Halloween has come and gone.
My kids woke up this morning with candy hangovers and said,
"I'm so GLAD we had Halloween last night. That's my favorite holiday!"
All of the kids our kids have grown up with. And that we have grown up with.
We are back!
Our family chose a theme again this year! YAY!
And was it easy. Charlie Brown.
Woohoo! Yes, I was Peppermint Patty, who my kids told me was a BOY. I had to keep telling them that she was a girl.
Awesome gender awkwardness in cartoons translating into real life.
Gotta love that.
Every family should do Charlie Brown at least once just for a break from working on costumes so hard.
Or you could just do this theme.
The little notes say, "we are lazy and have no $. So we pooped on your party."
Thank you for that Robin.
Chuck and Buzz were the real American heroes.
I mean, can she get any cuter?
Mrs. Potato Head about found herself in a carseat in my car going home with me last night.

While trick or treating, we ran into grown-up Charlie Brown crew. They were thrilled to see our family.
Lucy DID NOT want to take pictures with strangers. Harumph.
We hope you and yours had a great day.

Now that it's November 1st, you know that means we are simply in a retail deathmarch to Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Crafters-ready, set, go!

It just felt so...right to have you in Weaverville on Halloween. You can take that cute little girl home in a car seat any time, as long as you return her at some point! Love you!
