Halloween Pics! (and a pumpkin you will NOT believe!)

Hope you all survived Halloween last night, everyone was dragging in to school this morning, those Sunday night celebrations are rough LOL!! We spent most of the evening up at our church's Festival 31 before a quick trick or treat spin around the block. Hyde Park Baptist is such an amazing church with so many wonderful ministries and offers such fantastic resources and events for the community, the kid had blast playing all the free games and doing the rides and inflatables and I won a cake in the cake walk! if you are in the Austin area I would love for you to come check them out!

Here is William posing in his Boba Fett costume, just pretend the candy bag is a really cool blaster (I didn't want to spend the extra $15 bucks, I drew the line at the costume!)
And here is Jonathan in his Clone Wars Commander Fox costume, he makes his own blaster, piu piu, got you!!
And finally one pic I just had to share from our 'hood, we live a few blocks from some truly amazing amateur pumpkincarvers, here is Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, this is a carved pumpkin with a colored light inside, so I really got lucky to snap this just before it changed! They had several others, some with dry ice billowing out of the designs, but this was my fave!
These people really get into Halloween, you know the ones? They hand out about $5 worth of goodies to each child, like glow sticks so they'll be safe walking, microwave popcorn bags, Play-Doh the works, every year, so I think this time I'm going to take a handmade thank you card down there along with this printed out pic for them! We are so blessed to have people like that in our neighborhood who do that for kids, it is a place we look forward to visiting each Halloween as much as we look forward to a carnival or trick or treating itself!
Hope you had a fantastic time with your own families, now I need to go make like a stamper and crank out some sneak peek goodness for the week!
See you back here at 10PM with a reveal of my new set, which I will also be giving away!!! (Any guesses, ladies??)
