Happy Halloween!

Our Halloween started off this morning by making cookies! (Okay, I cheated. They were sugar cookies from a bag, and frosting from a container.) I failed to find Halloween sprinkles at both Walmart and the grocery store this past week, so we improvised. We mixed up a bit of orange frosting and Drew attacked the cookies with green Christmas sprinkles. Same difference, right?

If you ever need a sprinkle man, just call on Drew...he takes his job very seriously!

(But he likes to sneak a lick or two, too!)


Mmmm good.

The finished product.

After naps this afternoon, but before the sun went down and it got any cooler outside, we got the boys all decked out in their costumes. We did just a little bit of walking around our neighborhood, primarily to those from church that live down the street. Drew was super excited about trick-or-treating, but was a little gun-shy when it came to do the actual work of it (the knocking and speaking part!). He's starting to understand the general concept, and what can I say? He's just like his mom...candy is a great motivator!

Introducing Lightening McQueen's crew chief, and our little spotted frog!

Check out Drew's expression... WAY excited!

The end result.

Just for fun...
What's with spotted frogs wanting to eat pumpkins?!?
