It was a fun day. The kids were out of school. The end of first term was Thursday, and they always have the following day off. It's called Quality Teaching Day. It kind of cracks me up that Quality Teaching Day takes place when there are no students around. :) If you ask me, it's pretty easy to be a quality teacher when you don't have any kids around bothering you.... But I digress.
Anyway, on Friday, we went to a party hosted by Kate and Jan. It was lots of fun. Fun games, great food and awesome company.
After the party, Alex, Mallory and I went home and carved our pumpkins. Nothing like waiting until the last minute. Like I said, Halloween somehow just seemed to sneak up on me.
Then, Friday night was trick or treating. The weather was great until right around the time we headed out, then it started to rain. We were undaunted, however, and braved the rain until the candy buckets were full!

Tempe and Maddy had as much fun decorating themselves as they did decorating their pumpkins!

And I just had to post this. Here's our neighbor Gary as the Jolly Green Giant. Not just anyone could pull that off, but he was perfect for the part. Later when I saw him, though, the rain had washed away a lot of the green. :)
