Happy Halloween

On Saturday we carved pumpkins with our neighbors.
Arlo has been very excited about all things Halloween this year.  Each night he has had to go out and "see Halloween".  We walked through the complex to see the decorations, and to say goodnight to our pumpkins.

 Wyatt as the Headless Horseman
Arlo gearing up for trick-or-treating!  

Spoooky Ghost!

We trick-or-treated through a neighboring sub division.  Arlo was more interested in the decorations than he was the actual "treat" part....until we got home, of course!  We saw a few of Wyatt's classmates, and even his teacher! 
We thought Arlo would freak out at Barney, but he was more in awe than anything...checked out his nose, feet, does he move?
 A few moments to chow down and enjoy their haul....

...and to watch a few scary tv shows....happy candy coma to everyone!!!

(PS...I'm tossing all of the need to replace another crown this year)

 I have finally finished Nolan's Quilt.!  The stars were made using Paper Piecing.  The piecing was done by machine, the quilting was done by hand.

 Saturday was the Fall Carnival at Wyatt's school.  His favorite "booth" was the obstacle course.

For breakfast...a Dutch Baby!  This was really good.  I got the recipe from here.  I baked it in a Pyrex pie plate instead of an iron skillet.
