Happy Halloween!!

We had quite a fun Halloween!  We had many things to look forward to and many things to enjoy.  First on the list was Cooper wearing his costume to school and the girls having a Harvest Festival at the gym that they also dressed up for.

Here is Cooper in class, dressed like Captain Hook.

Next, we were anticipating Papa coming home for the whole weekend!  Papa has been working hard down in Fresno since August and we were excited to have him back with us for a while.

In preparation for both Papa's return and Aunt Michal and Uncle Jared's Halloween party, that afternoon my mom made homemade buttermilk donuts with maple glaze.  We got the recipe from Michal's good friend and amazing cook, Prudence Pennywise.  First I'll show you a picture of the donuts, then I'll give you link straight to the recipe.

Oh Mama, are these the best thing ever!  Here's Catelyn w/ her apron ready to help in any way we will let her.

Papa came home just as we were finishing up with these.  He was happy to be there I'm sure.  Next it was time to get dressed (again) and head over to the party.

Then we went home and went trick or treating until it started to really rain and it was time for bed.  I hope everyone's Halloween was as fun and enjoyable as ours was!

Everyone looks so great in their costumes. Those donuts look good. We got to have homemade donuts on halloween too, but I didn't make them and they didn't have a maple glaze!

So cute! I love all of the costumes. I sure wish we could have been out there for the party. It looks like a blast!

The doughnuts were delicious! and all of your costumes were wonderful! (especially little tinker bell) Your a good mom for getting dresses up too. I was a dud this Halloween. You have inspired me to do better next year.

poor scotty, the only 07 to miss the party.
i'm surprised that cooper got to wear his costume to school. in our school district they can't. they still have parties and call it pumpkin day, but no costumes.
