Halloween and an Update on our House Projects!

A couple of weeks ago my husband finished the walls in our basement (the ceiling will be finished next year). Here are some before and after pictures:















You can't really tell what color the walls are but we painted them a very light lavender and then we had carpet put in the Wednesday before Halloween.

So, we decided to have a Halloween party at our house. We had about 10 families join us for some warm soup before heading out to trick-or-treat.

This is Jack and Lydia at the Great Pumpkin Farm, the pumpkins are as big as they are and there are pumpkins there that are 4 times as big as they are as well.

Lydia made a beautiful Cinderella.
Here is Lydia and 2 of her friends from the party.
Emily was a fabulous Jester.

And Jack a Power Ranger, of course.
Here we are right after we all went trick-or-treating and the party had come to an end.
