It was the weekend after Dan's birthday, so you know what that means at our house? Halloween can officially begin! We started the weekend with pumpkin waffles and getting out the Halloween decorations. We rounded out the beginning of the Halloween festivities with a little trip to The Fantasy Trail with the Rices. It was so much fun! The only one who didn't have a lot of fun the entire time was Mezmur, who seems to have many fears of what comes out during Halloween time. We found ourselves kissing and hugging some of these freaky characters to set Mezmur's mind at ease. We have basically made-out with the skeleton at our house...it doesn't really seem to help much.
