Halloween 2005

October was filled with all sorts of Halloween activities. Brevin got to go to a pumpkin patch with his preschool class and pick out his own pumpkin (he had to be able to lift it, couldn't just choose the enormous ones).

For the family party, we thought we'd all dress up as Napoleon Dynamite characters. Brevin was Napoleon and used Amber's "Annie" wig for his fro. Spencer made a cute Pedro, Amber was Deb, and I was the one and only "we all know I'm training to be a cage fighter" Kip.

I carved Brevin a Napoleon pumpkin (which won 2nd place in the contest at work) and the face of Joseph, and Amber carved the "Joseph 200" in commemoration of the 200th anniversary of his birth this year.

I brought the fam to work with me so they could see the costume parade and contest. Brevin went up on stage as Napoleon to collect my cash prize for winning 2nd place in the pumpkin carving contest. The executive management thought he was cute enough to slip him a $50 bill and also give him the big blow up pumpkin that was on stage.

Brevin and Spencer went trick-or-treating that night and both had had enough after about an hour. It was a fun and eventful Halloween. Click here to see all the photos.
