Pumpkin carving/Halloween night

I love Halloween. I always have and I thought it would be really fun now that I live close to my family to host a pumpkin carving party. So that is exactly what I did. I was kind of nervous about cooking dinner for that many people. I had never done it before and for some reason I am timid about cooking for people in general. I just worry that it won't come out right. I am happy to report that I think it went well. From what I saw everyone was eating and I don't think anyone got sick :). I think that is a win.

After dinner we watched the old Disney headless horseman movie and carved our pumpkins. The only problem is that the kids had school the next day and my brother had to work super early so they had to kind of rush home, but I think overall the party was a success.

On Halloween night we went to my friends neighborhood to trick or treat. She had told me that her neighborhood was very kid friendly and she was right. One house even had a booth set up giving away hot chocolate. Morgan really had fun running from house to house and she didn't need up to go up to the door with her at all. She had the situation completely under control.

Trick or Treeeeaaaaatttt

That is how Morgan says it. She says it really loud and extends the treat. It makes us laugh because people would react by saying "oh wow, you deserve some more candy". I think she caught on to that and kept it up :)

This year for Halloween Morgan was Minnie Mouse. There wasn't really any budging her on that and that's alright. The girl knows what she wants. Unfortunately, that meant that all three of us weren't going to be doing a family costume again this year and we really enjoyed doing that the last two years. We couldn't think of anything to dress up as and at the last minute we came up with The Price is Right contestants.

At our church Halloween party Morgan had fun running around trying to play all the games. Especially, trying to eat a doughnut from a string. We had to watch her or she would keep going back. It was a lot more laid back for us this year because we got to sit back and watch her play instead of guiding her around and making sure she didn't run out of the room. Here are some pictures from that church Party.

As you could tell from her expression, she had a blast!
