Happy Halloween!!!

Hope everyone had a great halloween and enjoyed the fun of the day.
For the last 7 years my kids have loved dressing up and going trick or treating, and this year was no exception. All the kids invited their friends around to get ready and then went treating together. In total I had 18 kids here. It was great as they were all getting into the spirit of the night and just having fun. My eldest, Maddii (15), and her friend asked to take Phoenix (4) around the neighbourhood.

                                                          Some of the gang.

Phoenix as Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

The stash.

After about an hour the kids all came back very wet, a bit cold but laughing their heads off. I dont know if it was all the sugar they had consumed but it was lovely to hear. I was amazed at how little a difference it makes, noise level wise, between 4 kids and 18 kids. They all had a great time.

This halloween I finally got to do something I've always wanted to do........I transformed this pumpkin into this!!

A Jack Skellington from Nightmare before Christmas Jack-o-lanteen.

I loved how he turned out.

I had such a ball making him and he only took about 45mins from beginning to end to make. Jack took pride of place at the front door and really made the place feel halloweeny (is that a word??). All the kids thought he was rather cool.
