Halloween 2012

{So. My lack of posting is indicative of my state of mind of late. But I found I had the time and the inclination to post today, so I'm going with it.}

Carving pumpkins. Eva hates the guts. Who can blame her?
Lucas doing his Joker makeup. He was dead set on being the Joker from the Dark Knight, even though we feared it might be in poor taste (given what happened in Colorado earlier this year). It's hard to tell in these pictures, but his hair was green.
Why so serious?
Eva announced that she has outgrown princesses and prissy girl stuff. Well. She wanted to be something creepy.
I didn't have to buy or make anything for her costume. Works for me! (By the way, the little drops of "blood" were her idea.)
Add caption
Lucas's jack-o-lantern.
Eva's jack-o-lantern.
Riley came over to go trick or treating with her, to the delight of both. Marc took them while I stayed home to man the door. Usually one of us will go out for awhile and then we switch, but this time they were fine with just an hour or so! I got off easy this year.
Landon came over to trick or treat with Lucas. They were gone for almost three hours!
They scored quite a haul.
Poor Max didn't get to do anything fun on Halloween, as he was finishing up a crazy huge assignment for his AP English class. A paper with 70 required sources! He finished. Whew!

Glad to see you back. I have been following your blog for a few years now and though I don't comment much, I really miss you when you don't post. I am a friend of Patsy and found your blog through her. Hopefully you will feel up to posting more in the future.

Eva is very creepy- That surprised me- because I think she is just so cute!
3 hours of trick or treating!? I think he should have even more candy.

70 sources-- insane.

happy to see you-

Hooray you're posting!!!

Thanks for having Landon over, he loved it of course.

Can you believe we haven't carved pumpkins the last few years? Somehow we never make time for it.

70 sources? That seems more like trying to prove a point than trying to teach your high school students how to craft research papers.

Glad to see you posting, though I am one to talk...
