HALLOWEEN!!!

I thought I'd post some pictures of the fun my friends and I had for Halloween this year.

At FHE on Monday, we carved pumpkins. This is by far my favorite part of Halloween. I spent the better part of an hour carving, and I love the happy, goofy face I ended up with. All of Halloween should be this harmless-looking. Don't you think?
Now, I have a confession. I don't actually like Halloween much. I mean, I like carving pumpkins and candy, but I could do without the rest. I don't like scary movies, haunted houses, or trying to come up with a clever costume. Still, this Halloween I was pretty proud of what I came up with for a costume. In the great movie, It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, Lucy says, "A person should always choose a costume that is in direct contrast to her own personality." How did I do?
I decided that as much fun as it was to be Luna Lovegood, I should not go blonde permanently. I thought Amy made a cute Alice, Danielle was a rowdy cowgirl, Emily was a roaring flapper, and Brenda was a creepy dental assistant. I think the most fun part of the evening was the process of getting dressed and taking pictures. What great friends!

I love your Luna costume! You look so cute! Did you dress up for school, too? I'll bet your students would have gotten a kick out of it! So, when are you coming to visit? Are you coming for Thanksgiving or do we have to wait until Christmas? Just curious!! Love ya, meg!

That is an excellent costume! I'm glad you were able to have a good time on Halloween. I'm a big fan of Halloween. I like scary movies, costumes and especially candy so it's right up my alley.
