Carving & Cocktails!

Halloween, in past years, hasn't been much of a holiday for Steve and I. We always buy candy to hand out to the little kids that come trick-or-treating but we haven't ever done pumpkin carving or anything. Well, this year we were lucky enough to be invited over to Kevin & Ann's for an evening of carving pumpkins and yummy Halloween themed cocktails! Frankie joined us for the evening sporting his skeleton onesie (which is about as close to a costume we had for him this year).

The night was fabulous! Not having carved pumpkins in YEARS, I thought Steve's Shrek and my Wicked pumpkins turned out pretty well. Ann was kind enough to even carve a little pumpkin for the little man. It was so cute! The night in general was great; good friends, great conversation, lots of laughter, fabulous food, and yummy cocktails. Here's to hoping that this becomes an annual event (*hint hint Kleins*)!

As for the actual day of Halloween, Steve was in-charge of handing out candy this year and there were about 30-40 trick-or-treaters that stopped by. That is about average for us since we live in an older neighborhood, nonetheless according to Steve, there were some pretty adorable costumes that stopped by. I was in charge of the pup and the babe which made it an interesting night for me. The pup just wanted to help hand out candy and meet all the little kids! He was not a fan of being stuck in the basement with me and Frank. Frank couldn't decide if he wanted to be happy or if he wanted to ruin my hearing for a few hours. :-) Staying in the warm basement was okay with me though, since I have a feeling this is the last year of that for a while - next year we will probably be out wandering the neighborhood with a toddler and a puppy...
