i don't know what it is, but this halloween was one of my favorites.  maybe it's because we have a kid.  maybe it's because i'm not working.  either way, it was awesome.

the festivities started on friday with a parade at tannon's school.  it was so much fun!  i love all of the fellow dental students and their wives/families.

we don't really know what lennon's costume is supposed to be.  i found it at a consignment sale for a few bucks.  we went with stink bug.  whatever it is, he sure looked cute in it.

that night we went to our ward trunk-or-treat at our church, where there was a chili cook-off.  i made this.

there were some really awesome costumes there, but the following two were my absolute favorites:

captain jack sparrow and a gorgeous asian.  isn't she the prettiest thing you've ever seen?  if you know her dad, this costume is much funnier.

remember how i thought lennon was a stink bug?  that was until we ran into mario and princess peach.  he is clearly a yoshi egg.

halloween night, we had chili, cornbread, and home-made root beer.  we chased it all down with pumpkin donuts.

Holy smack, that chili sounds awesome. Was it?

Those pumpkin donuts are really bringing me to tears.

I'm glad you had a fun Halloween. I'm excited for when we have kids and holidays will be that much more exciting again!
