A Chilly Halloween Night

Here are the kids sporting their costumes last night ready to trick or treat. Makenna's clown costume is one that I wore as a kid. My mom made one for me and my sister. It was neat to see her wearing it!

My hubby has a bum knee, so we did the latter part of trick-or-treating like this. It was so cold riding on the golf cart that we stopped at my mom's for some hot chocolate and a blanket. I so love having her close by. You're the best, Mom! (If you are wondering what my costume is, it's a "fork in the road" It was starting to fall apart by this point.)

I haven't showed much of my fall decor on the blog this year, so here are a few pics. The kids added the Frankenstein pumpkin and some spider webs for an extra special touch ;)

Our mean carved pumpkin. Bryce is into the "scary" stuff this year. I think it's a boy thing...

Here is what I did on the little buffet table in my kitchen. I finally did some of those DIY zinc letters and they turned out great. Go here for the tutorial if you want to make some. I got these clay letters at an antique store for $1 each, but you can get cardboard ones at Hobby Lobby for a few dollars. Hope your Halloween was memorable. Happy November!
