Halloween is not my favorite holiday, just because I dread dealing with the sugar rush, but of course the children love it, so I try to humor them.  It was a gorgeous night, which was nice, so we walked the neighborhood for about two hours (the littlest one is S-L-O-W) and then drove over to Nana and Papa's house and stopped in for treats and hot cider.

My attempt at Halloween craftiness

They were pretty cute as far as spider cupcakes go, if I do say so myself

My little sunflower

Allegra as teacher Laura Ingalls

Ian as a ninja (when you procrastinate until a week before Halloween, costumes are pretty slim pickings)

All the kiddos that trick or treated (Hero stayed home and handed out candy) including Olympic gold medalist skater Cecily and power ninja (?) Colin

Hero did four of the six pumpkins, woohoo!  She was most proud of her Tardis pumpkin
