Yet another fun Halloween for us. This year, Ashleigh decided to dress up as the Queen of Hearts, Garrett was a Storm Trooper and Alyssa had designed her own original costume based on a character in a story she is writing. Since Charles was off this year, he made his own costume as well and dressed up as a Plague Doctor. I spent most of the week designing apothecary bottles, painting tombstones and bones and figuring out how to make a not too scary pyre for the table..
We had probably 120 trick or treaters and almost everyone commented how great our decorations were this year.
