It’s a time of little ghosts and goblins running a muck through the neighborhoods snatching up all of the candy they can. We had our annually pumpkin carving contest at Mammaw and Pawpaw’s house this year and yours truly took home the winning pumpkin with my large and in charge scary face. Simple yet satisfying is the way I like it. The kids did an awesome job on their own pumpkins and we all had a fun time spending time with our family.
With carving out of the way and a few days until Halloween we took this as an opportunity to make sure all of decorations and costumes were ready for the big night. It didn’t take long to make sure we were ready, however my daughter wanted to switch things up at her schools Halloween party and decided to be a hot dog instead of Belle like she originally planned. It was an easy fix and she looked amazing as a hot dog! Mommy even volunteered for her class party so all of the kids got to have a blast with the various parents and their amazing teacher.
As Halloween night got here we headed on over to Uncle Mike’s and Aunt Shell’s to eat some pizza and get our candy! This year our little family of four decided to go with a Mario theme. My son was the title character Mario, I was Yoshi, my daughter was Princess Peach and my wife was the baddie Wario! I made a question block to show off Super Mario World and to hold my beer while we went around and collected our candy.
The neighborhood was jammed packed with kids and some really cool adults. It pulled on my heartstrings a little bit hearing my little guy saying “thank you” each time he got a piece of candy. He also made sure to show off each piece as he came running down the sidewalk to where I was standing. Of course all of the kids made out like bandits and had a blast doing so. Halloween is one of our families favorite holidays and this one was no different. Check out our pics from this years Halloween fun! Thank you to our awesome family for having us over, we love seeing the kids have fun and Halloween is the perfect excuse for us to join in as well.
