Halloween Fun

The pumpkin carving.
That is all you get of that, I forgot to take pictures of the finished products it was very late.

" Beauty and the Zombie"

I got to do Milo's make up twice. Once for the school party and then on Halloween. I really enjoy doing make up for Halloween, it is fun to envision what would create a certain look. Don't ask me to sew costumes though.

Luckily we have Grandma I, she put in a lot of hours making Lil's " Belle" dress. Lil' was so excited about it. Thanks Grandma I, we love you.

Can you believe all the candy is gone!!!!
