Halloween Festivities

 Trunk or Treat. 

Jet was the BIG BAD Wolf, Chad was the Woodcutter, and I was Little Red Riding Hood.  At first, Jet was just a bad wolf, because he didn't want to wear his tail or hat.  I have learned that he doesn't like fur.  Whoops, bad costume choice!  I worked around it.  We tried to sneakily pin his tail on, but he caught us, and said "Tail, Tail, Tail" in a sad voice all the way to the church.  Once the games started rolling, he finally just had fun.   

 Okay, I know Chad's shirt is supposed to be a costume, but I actually really like it.   

 Detering Orchards.  We always went here as a family when I was little, so it was so awesome going with my parents after so many years.  LOVED IT!

 Kara, I see why you loved this sweater so much.  It's so charming.  Thank you!

 The next night, we carved pumpkins at Chad's parents.  For some reason, extracting pumpkin gook was really relaxing this time. 
Halloween night was great.  I was The World's Greatest Teacher.  (I got this awesome vest from my mom-in-law's friend)  We were both actually really productive, and it felt like we were playing house.  It was so fun.  Chad was organizing his tools in the garage, I was baking pumpkins seeds, and doing laundry, Jet was playing with the dogs.  Every once in a while there would be a trick-or-treater, and we'd rush to the door to see their costumes.  Our twinkly lights were on, resting on the mantel, our pumpkins were lit, the house smelled like yummy dinner and sweets.  It was warm and cozy.  The combination of all these little things made for the perfect night at home. 

It was such a great weekend!

Very cute post. I love all the pictures. Jet looked like he enjoyed everything. And, I agree with you about Chad's shirt. I think he should wear it all the time. It looked good. I like your vest too. Awesome.
