Halloween and Picture Dump...Okay, mostly just pictures

For Halloween this year some of our friends came over to join us for a dinner of ribs (thanks for the ideas Jen!),

Green slime and pumpkin guts,

Cake


Mashed potato ghosts and breadstick bones with blood (not pictured)



We dressed the girls up as the princess and the pea, with us as mattresses and took them trick-or-treating to a few people. Millie was so high on sugar that we may never do it again. I'll post some pictures of the costumes when I get them.



On an unrelated note, my super talented friend/sister-in-law Jen took some pictures of the girls. Considering the disastrous timing of Alice's baby acne plus neither of the girls cooperating, I'd say she did an amazing job. I guess someday we'll enjoy the true nature of our lives being shown in the pictures.







Nice spit up stain, Alice!

... including this creepy scene we saw when Millie got up from her nap. Should we be worried?

Cute pictures. I love the one of the girls together in pink jackets. I'm dying to see you and Barney as mattresses. Awesome idea.
