Halloween Fun

The carnival was pretty small this year. We just don't have very many kids. So to try to add a little something extra on top of the usual carnival games, we finished up with "pie the teacher". The kids LOVED it!! Stewart did well. He appeared to be having a good time even when he came out of it with a fat lip. If we do this again next year we may need to consider some protective head gear.
We had good weather for the first time in many years for trick or treating, it wasn't completely dry, but we got away with just a light mist of rain and no wind. I walked with the kids to all 17 houses in town. Here's the kids with their pumpkins. The girls had to share one because Liz's went rotten, but they had a great time designing and carving.
Here's the kids all dressed up and ready for trick or treating. Caleb the skeleton, Josh as batman, Liz as an old Cup'ik woman, and Sammie as a pumpkin.The loot! I have no idea what to do with all this candy. That's way more any of us should eat in the next 5 years.

Sammie was the most excited. I love this face!! If only I could channel her enthusiasm into constructive things.
