This Halloween was pretty awesome. Last year we were in Samoa for Halloween, so this is the first Halloween where Dalley knew what was going on when we went trick or treating. He kept calling it Trick or hunting which I thought was hilarious. We started out by carving pumpkins and making Halloween cupcakes for Family Home evening a few days before Halloween. Dalley has such a strong gag reflex he couldn't be around the pumpkins until all the guts were disposed of. The smell of pumpkin guts makes him puke. I carved mine and Dustin carved his and Dalley's. It was my job to remove ALL of the pumpkin guts though. Whitlee sat in the bumbo and gave us moral support. After the pumpkins we decorated the Halloween cupcakes I had made. I took a plate to a lady I visit teach and Dustin took the rest to the guys he works with.
I was assigned as a helper on Dalley's preschool Halloween party. It was a lot of fun. I was instructed to make witches out of a pickle an olive and a piece of cheese. I had no idea how to do that so I just got mini cookie cutters and cut the cheese into Halloween shapes and put them on a toothpick with a pickle and an olive. The other moms went to a lot of work to make really cute treats for the kids. We played fun games and Dalley had a good time. He has such a great teacher and it she is also Dustin's aunt.
On Halloween night they had a trunk or treat. We went because it gave us an opportunity to hand out our candy, but after it was over we went door to door. Dustin loves trick or treating because it gives him an opportunity to b.s. with everyone. We averaged about ten minutes at each house. It was a really enjoyable night and we got to visit with a lot of people that we don't get the opportunity to see very often.
