Halloween as the boys are growing up has changed a little bit. This year it wasn't that much about the costumes. Garrett was the only on that was allowed to dress up at school for Halloween, and he decided that for school, he was just going to be a flag football player. That was pretty simple and he pulled together his costume- no help from me. For the community party he had a Knight costume from VBS this summer that he wanted to wear again. Robert as a 7th grader only need a costume for the Community Halloween Party so he decided that he would be a cowboy- that was simple too. My nephew had his all figured out- he was going to be "Uncle Si" and then there was my niece- she was going to be a pig one day and then a lion. I had the lion costume in the attic, but when we tried it on she was too tall so back to the pig. My sister had a fun foam pig visor and then pink shirt and pants all I needed to help with was the tail. Here's how they turned out...


Uncle Si

Little Piggy
The Cowboy

The Knight

 Since the kids took care of their costumes, I got to play with their food and help with the 4-H Clubs Halloween dinner. We had the following...

"Red Wiggler Sandwiches"

"Boogers and scabs"

"Baby Pooh"

"Brain and Brain Serum"


"Brittle Bones"

"Dog Food"

All of the food was real food with weird names, but it freaked out kids and adults just because of the names. But we had a great time!
