Rasslin' Up some Candy

Halloween seemed to happen suddenly here, even though we had been looking forward to it for some time. We carved a giant (!) pumpkin and a couple small ones... it was the first year that M wanted to help and had an opinion about the face. 

 We had some fun with decorations....

Aunt Mimi had a little get together at her house so we could see all the kids in costume, including the one she made for Ripples. I'll say it again, I have the best friends.
M looks cool as a cucumber in her cowgirl costume...
Ripples is not too sure about being dressed as a
Candy Corn and  left on the bench... those kids will eat anything!
Getting individual pics of the kids wasn't too hard.
Brad and Oz, dressed in his lederhosen.  
Getting them all together was another story...

Our best attempt at getting Gus (Monkey), M (Cowgirl), Ripples (Candy Corn),
Reno (Lion) and Oz (Accordion Aficionado).

Latter, M was willing to ham it up a little:

Daddy was in charge of her costume this year and did a great job!
Trick or Treating went better than before, with M being interested in candy now. She didn't try to eat every piece right as she got it and she didn't try to go into anyone's house. But her favorite part of the night was still answering the door and giving out candy, which is good because I've been looking to delegate that job for a long time now!

What's another word for clever?

Walking to my class, I saw this on the bulletin board:

I love working on a college campus.

A Whole New Level

So my mom finally convinced us that we needed the new freezer she's been wanting to get us...
This was her reasoning:

I've been pumping and freezing milk to take to Ripples' daycare, and let's just say the supply has been good.  It's been slowly taking over our regular freezer. Which means there isn't much room for other stuff. 
Now that we have the new freezer, all I can say is, "Mom, we're going to need more Otter Pops too."
