Pumpkin carving in the park, school trunk 'r treats, parties, playdates, crafting, and a rotation of costumes that included the likes of Flash, vintage Christian Hasoi, gypsy baby, a monkey suit (worn by each of the boys on all of their first Halloweens) one bright happy dancing banana, and my best attempt at Day of the Dead face painting that came about rather last minute while trying to figure out how to dress up an entire family in a very short amount of time. Inspiration fresh from the drive-in movie the night prior, where we met with friends to see The Book of Life.

Our October was jam packed with all the regular events and activities and the big night couldn't have ended better. A pizza party with school freinds around the corner, then trick 'r treating and a Ramones cover band playing in a garage for a drive way filled with kids who danced the night way just before the rain started to fall.

What just might be our favorite Halloween to date.
