Halloween Weekend Pictures

This weekend was a busy Halloween weekend.
Saturday we had a Halloween party. We did most of our decorating Saturday too. We had a bunch of guests: kids and grown-ups. It was a nice time. Most of the food was eaten.
Sunday was religious school in the morning. In the afternoon we finished getting ready for Halloween proper. We carved the Jack-O-Lanterns, and lit them up. We reinflated Snoopy.
Sunday late afternoon we started getting trick-or-treaters. So it was time to get a little nutrition into the kids first. We had a quick, early dinner. Then I took out all 3 boys trick-or-treating. The little guys both set a new record in number of houses visited. My big guy had a friend join us on the second foray. And during the last trip out, his friend's sister joined us in the middle. During this time it got very windy and cold, and then is started to have a slushy rain. This quickly turned to real flurries. Turned out to be a normal Colorado Springs Halloween: snow!
