We had chili dinner at our neighbors before it got dark.

All the kids really got a kick out of the display. A lot of parents used our set up as a backdrop for taking pictures of their kids. We had a few scared little ones but most kids just thought it was cool and gave us advise on what we should add. Pretty funny. The weather was great and we had a huge turn out. We had a steady stream of kids from 6:30 to 9:00, and went through 4 big bags of candy. The most we've ever gone through. Everyone's comment 'Can't wait to see what you do next year', guess we'll have to keep adding on. Only 364 days till next year.

You can check out all the work in progress here.

All we've got left to do is stretch some spider webs. It'll all look great at tonight when it's lit up.


Here's a pic of Violet in her costume for school. I didn't want t send her in her other monkey costume because I didn't want it to get messed up. I did add the hair and a bow because I thought it was too boring.



I'm starting Flashback Fridays. We'll see how long I can keep it going. I'll either get bored with it or run out of photos. I've got some good ones set aside. And they're not all of just Chris and I.
Since Halloween lands on this friday I thought I'd post a Halloween pic. October 31, 2000.

Today is orange day at school. Chris thinks she looks like she broke out of pumpkin jail.

This was pretty funny. Every time Chris walked out of site she'd get upset. Chris stepped out to get the dogs and she couldn't see him anymore. It was very cute. It's not often but every once in a while she wants us all in the same room. We call it her feeling needy nights. Is it bad that I made Chris go back outside just so I could get this on video?
