This is Halloween!

We had a fantastic Halloween season this year. Eli loved what I'm sure he thought was the biggest candy haul he'd ever seen and Dan and I loved watching his bewildered face as he took in the costumes and goings on. The above is from our ward carnival. It was one in a series of candy fests that we took Eli to in good faith in which we rapidly retracted the onslaught of sweets leaving a very confused and sad two year old. Live and learn.

He wasn't too excited about pumpkin carving. We tried to get him in the spirit of things, but he was mostly interested in stabbing them with sharp objects.
Dan's pumpkin won first prize in our family carving contest. Pics upcoming...
Stab. Stab.
Blurry but awesome pic of our pumpkins. I mean seriously....look at Dan''s the Oogie one.
Now for the important things: Trick-or-treating. Eli liked it overall...but I think he was pretty bewildered by the process. At first he didn't want to move on to more houses before he'd consumed the previous bounty. When he figured out that wasn't going to happen he started running from house to house yelling "TREAAAAT!". It was awesome.

Here he is after House 1 eating his loot.

Best pic of Eli in his costume. We forgot the bandanna for this one...but amazingly cute.
