Halloween: The official recap

I can't believe Halloween has come and gone. Where is 2008 going?

We had a fun day, even though Loaf woke up with a nasty cold - poor thing.

The Gav family's Halloween by the numbers:
Time Peanut woke up: 4:49 a.m.
Time Loaf woke up: 5:35 a.m.
Number of cupcakes eaten (by me): 1
Tissues used: 872
Parades attended: 1
Photos taken: 43
Number of times I was asked, "is it time to go trick-or-treating yet?": 1,493
Costume changes (by Peanut): 2
Matches used to light three jack-o-lanterns: 8 (really! It was breezy)
Time spent trick-or-treating before they collapsed in exhaustion: 45 minutes

Here are a few photos:

The cowgirl and the horse, ready for the school parade
Loaf told everyone her costume was "Black Beauty," even though it's clearly a brown horse. Whatever makes you happy, kiddo.

Love the expression here

Trick-or-treat at night
Peanut decided to forgo the cowgirl costume (which was so cute) and transform into a princess for trick-or-treat. Which was just soooo much easier to walk in at night. <--Sacrasm

All set to go

Hitting up this house for more treats


My mom came down from Massachusetts to trick-or-treat with us

Me, the girls and my mom

And here's our whole family, including two VERY tired girls

Our little family

Hope you all had a GREAT Halloween!

I hope you're saving these pictures to embarass them with when they're teenagers. Really, haul them out whenever their boyfriends come around to pick them up. You'll need the comic relief by then, trust me.

So cute! Do you want 4 bags of candy minus about 5 candy bars? (We gave out two and I ate 3.)
