I thought I should document Halloween this year before Thanksgiving. I've been a little bit of a blog slacker and if I don't put these pictures on now, you may never see them.
Halloween week started of with a family home evening at the Brown's carving pumpklns. Maddie was a little afraid of putting her hand inside the pumpkin but we got her to use a spoon eventually. She mostly played with Ivan while Aaron and I carved the pumpkin.
We carved a Frankenstein pumpkin. *note to self: next Halloween get a picture of the finished pumpkin. oops*
Thursday was the Ward Halloween party. Sorry, no pictures of the party, just of Maddie's costume. She was Boo, from Monsters Inc. I spent the two hours before the party making her costume. Not perfect, but I didn't exactly have a lot of time. *note to self: next year, start making Maddie's costume sooner than the night of the Halloween party, or buy a costume*
Friday morning, I took Maddie to class in her costume. A little embarrassing taking the costume to my sewing class, but at least my teacher knew why I didn't get the buttons on the pants I turned in that day. Someday, I will post the projects I have made in my sewing class.
That evening, we went to probably the most awesomest party ever, The Brown's annual Murder Mystery Party. They turned their apartment into a cave and we all dressed up like superheros. I yoinked some pictures from Mandy's blog. Aaron was the General and I was Blue Blaze. This is a picture of all the characters.
Here is a group shot. Turns out, not only did I die that night, I harbored a villain and murdered a fellow superhero. I bet you didn't know I had it in me, I sure didn't.
On Halloween day we just hung out as a family. We took Maddie to the Rex's Trunk or Treat. She played a little DDR with Temprance and we had free tacos at Taco Bell.
Best Halloween we've had all year!
