Trick or Treat!

Happy Halloween!!!

We had two days of Halloween fun, mostly because several of our friends here absolutely love Halloween. On Friday we went to our friends church for a chili cook-off and trunk or treating. I think Halloween is always way more fun when there are kids involved, on Friday they were plentiful! The chili was delicious, John made a spicy chili but didn't win the cook-off (BOO!), but the best part of the night was seeing all the kids in their costumes! I forgot my camera (oops!) but the two of us weren't dressed up anyway. We figured we'd save the big reveal for the 31st.

On Saturday we headed to Beacon Hill, where Derrick and Mel had everyone over for scones and cider. It was delicious and we had a lot of fun visiting and admiring everyone's costumes. I apologize for the lack of photos of the two of us, I'll post some once I get them.
My handsome cowboy!

Melissa was a mime... and Abby's loving it! 

Once we were full and had eaten enough scones, we headed outside to go trick-or-treating. In Beacon Hill, they close off some of the streets so that everyone can go from house to house safely. The homes were beautiful, it was great to be able to see inside of the ones who left their lights on. Some entryways were elaborately decorated, which was really cool!

John made these amazing planets (and moon) himself!

Amit loved being a cowboy, complete with a real rope! 

One stop had its own little courtyard, but we could 
only get to it by walking through the tunnel.

Melissa helped give Abby a lift. 
The two of them are so cute!

Here's the long-awaited photo of the solar system!
Aidan and Abby didn't want to stop getting candy to pose for me.

Melissa was a very fun mime!

Amit and Derrick had fun fighting... It looks like the knight won.

Amit's favorite part of the whole night?
Getting to rope me
(although me in pigtails was probably a close second)

Well, that was our very fun Halloween...
Can't wait to hear your stories!
Thanks to Krissy for inspiring our Halloween getup!
