halloween 2008

I thought instead of posting on each Halloween activity we did, I could just wait til Halloween was over and post about ALL the things we did.

Boo at the Zoo: It was miserable and cold and rainy. We were there for about 30 minutes. Just enough time to get our goody bag and leave.

The lion did put on a good show though. He was roaring away in this pic. Ellie was enthralled!
My Mom's group party. I didn't take many pics, but I did get a cute one of Ellie and her girlfriends, Orly (snow white) and the other Ellie (Cinderella)
Actual Halloween day: Carving pumpkins. Ellie wasn't much help. She looked cute though.

Ellie the kitty and her Ellie pumpkin. I carve a pumpkin with her name in it every year. Somehow that has become a tradition!

"The candy goes in here Dad!"

The finished carved pumpkins. Pitiful I know. Look at this one my friend Abby did. Amazing.
Enjoying a blue sucker. Overall we did ok. 2 licks of a sucker, 1 pack of snack sized m&m's and a small snickers. She was asleep by 9:45.

Ellie and mommy handing out candy. I had over 700 pieces and ran out in less than 2 hours. That is only giving one piece per kid. We have a crazy neighborhood.
The pumpkins at night!
It was a great Halloween! Now on to the Holiday Season! My favorite!

She is such a cutie. I can't carve pumpkins....I to me, yours look amazing too. :) When I still lived in America, we would go through that much candy in that amount of time too. Due to people dropping off their kids from neighboring towns.
