Our Halloween

We started our Halloween day with pumpkin carving. We always do it the day of Halloween because they never last very long once they have been cut.

I let each of the kids do their own. I didn't do anything except help them scoop out all the guts.

Here are the finished products.

Sophie did a Dragaon! She thought it turned out great.
 We did do a little school work. We are still settling into our new home and routine so school has been rather minimal the last few days. We now have a bit more space to spread the kids out while they do their work.

While they did some math or attended their online classes I toasted the pumpkin seeds.

The kids got to watch a movie in the afternoon while yet another fix-it man visited the house. This time is was the dryer vent that needed a good cleaning out. With the washer and dryer upstairs the cleaning was  little more envolved.

Then everyone got dressed up and ready for trick-or-treating.

 Sophie went as Carmen Sandiego. Ian went as Harry Potter yet again. I made Molly were the leopard suit. She reallly wanted to be a princess again but her dress is getting a little snug. Henry was happy to dress up as a skeleton.

We headed down the street to one of our new friends house for a little pizza and rootbeer before heading out around our neighborhood for the candy.  It was a successful Halloween. We have too much candy and the kids met some new friends and neighbors.
