Happy Halloween 2014

Halloween snuck up on us this year.
We were busy enjoying a visit from Grammy and preparing for a trip to Mexico so Halloween got stuck on the back burner.  We still had a great time but I feel the holiday rushed by.

I did manage to snap a few pictures for your viewing pleasure.

The Taekwondo studio hosted a Trunk or Treat event.
We didn't get our costumes in time so L and T found something to wear around the house.

Last year we carved our pumpkins too early and they rotted way before Halloween.
This year we carved them just a few days ahead of time.
We enjoyed having Tera and Grammy with us too.

The kids did their own carving this year and no one cut off a finger.

My special University of Oregon pumpkin.

There is a house in a nearby neighborhood that goes all out for Halloween.  I made sure to take my Mom to see it.  They even have a building in their backyard to store it all in the off season.  They build the pirate ship from the ground up every year.

And then all too soon it was Halloween night!
Grammy handed out candy at home while Matt and I took the kids trick-or-treating.
We were lucky to hitch a ride on a neighbor's golf cart so we rode around in easy comfort while the kiddos ran up and down the street.

Hope you enjoyed your Halloween!
(Hope you still remember it because Thanksgiving has already come and gone.)

Hopefully what you say my IQ is is how many points the Wildcats score tonight against the Ducks!
