Happy Halloween, all! We have been creating all kinds of faces around here lately.
The Saturday before we left for California, Issa and I participated in our town's Handmade Parade. Once a year, the art council encourages groups and residents to create costumes in a Mardi Gras style parade. Our neighbor organized a group of girls to be butterfly fairies, and since everyone has to be costumed, I was their flower:
Evan and Daddy were proud supporters. Apparently, Evan spent much of the parade like this:
Can you blame him with costumes like this:
When we got home, we decided it was time to carve our pumpkins. The annual Daddy scooping, crazy face picture:
Issa decided to make a girl pumpkin, and she got to do her own carving this year:

That brings us to today. Although today is Halloween, Issa's school is celebrating favorite book character day. If your costume is a book character, you can wear it. If it is not, you can not. Are you hearing the annoyance in my tone? Let's just let the kids wear their costumes and roll on.
So...Issa is Spider Girl this year, which is a whole graphic novel series. But...that's not her favorite character. Pinkalicious is her favorite:
Tonight is trick-or-treat, and I am sure there will be plenty of non-pink cuteness to share tomorrow.
