Halloween 2014

For Halloween this year Finn was the cutest little scarecrow, I was a black cat, and Ben showed us up by dressing as Jack Skellington from the "Nightmare Before Christmas."  Ben pulled it off well and sure looked creepy.  Surprisingly, Finn wasn't scared of him, likely because he witnessed the transformation.  

We decorated our trunk with pumpkin lanterns, hanging bats, and smoke (from dry ice).  The dry ice was used for the home made root beer that we served.  It was what really made our trunk THE trunk to trick or treat at. Ben mixed up a creamy root beer that was a huge hit. We'll have to make that a yearly tradition.  

To finish off the holiday festivities we went pumpkin picking and Ben and I took off on a date night to Sea World's Howl-O-Scream. It was actually pretty frightening and I'm not sure that I would ever go again.  I am a wimp when it comes to that kind of stuff!
