Halloween

On Friday night Celo hosted the annual Halloween party for kids of all ages. It began with a hayride which stopped at about 6 houses for trick or treating. Then a chili dinner at the community center. There were a couple of dozen kids in and around the wagon and twice as many adults following along.

The boy couldn't really decide if he was having a good time or not. He liked the sound of the tractor, but mostly he just sat quietly and watched everything going on around him. He did better with the costume than we'd expected, he's gotten used to wearing a hat lately.


After many years of being called Kevin House it had to be a costume. Maybe he should have changed HIS name when we got married!

We had some special visitors join us for the fun!


In the background you can get a glimpse of the famous pumpkins. Over 100 pumpkins are carved and line both sides of the bridge over the river for the evening. A crew keeps them lit and monitors the huge crowds that come to see them. It's great fun. I didn't get a good picture of them, but if someone else posts one I'll link it up.

Aww... the little guy looks darling!

The pumpkins sound cool - that's got to be a lot of running around for the crew, though!

Great idea for a contest, and I love his costume! Adorable. :)
(I had zero trick-or-treaters here in Raleigh, but Hannah was in town so we kept busy all weekend.)

Oh wow, your little baby is a little kid now! I love his costume, btw.

That sounds like a neat Halloween event, I think I would really enjoy seeing all of those pumpkins.

I'm not sure whose costume I like better. For pure cuteness - the pony wins.

Love the contest idea too.
