Happy Halloween!!!!

Yesterday was Halloween.. Last year, I don't know what we were doing, but we didn't do anything fun for Halloween. This year, the Cole's had a Halloween costume/pass-out-candy party. Yes, please!

I wanted to have really cute/clever costumes for Hector and me. I wanted to utilize my 7 month pregnant belly. So, I started roaming the Internet.. checking out blogs and forums for great pregnancy costumes. And I found one that I knew would be a kick at the party. Behold:

Humpty Dumpty (before and after)
Taa-daaa!! Yes, we painted my belly. :) It took Hector about an hour to get it all painted. And upon arriving at the party, it still was not dry! We have never used face paint before, so we did not anticipate how long it would take to dry. I drew his Humpty Dumpty on his shirt. He made the boxes with bricks on them. I sewed the "legs" and added two little pairs of Cohen's shoes (they didn't make the picture :( ). A very inexpensive, clever, cute costume, if I do say so myself! I think everyone at the party liked them. :)

I made a cinnamon swirl cake for dessert; Sallie had made chili for everyone. I also made these cute appetizers:
Little Mummies! They were just Lil' Smokies wrapped in crescent roll strips. So easy and a BIG hit at the party! I remember telling David to open up the container for a surprise, turning to take a picture of something, turning back to the container a second later and about 2/3 of them were GONE! (not all by David..) And I made 40 of them! :)
Flo and the Geico gecko! (aka Jackie and Patrick) She looked just like Flo! Down to the bump and headband in her hair! Great idea, guys!

Maggie was the cutest ladybug you've ever seen! But she wasn't too sure about those gecko fingers touching her hands... And Callie isn't really pregnant (but it looks good on her, right??!) but her and David came as Finn and Quinn from Glee, when Quinn was pregnant last season. People tell David he looks like Finn (which he doesn't agree with). See the story and their couple pic here.

Tyler was a Ninja Turtle and Sallie was a hula girl. I must've been eating because I missed this photo op.

Humpty and Flo! (There are little Cohen's shoes!)

And we of course passed out candy to all the little Trick-or-Treaters (maybe 10 kiddos). Needless to say, we got to bring home a lot of the candy we took over there.

Oh, and Ranger was (what else??) the Red Power Ranger! Again.. I was off my a-game on taking pictures last night. :( Perhaps Jackie got some pictures of him in his costume. It was his one year birthday, too!

We had a really good time and were just thankful to have good friends to spend this Halloween with. Next year we'll be able to dress our little Cohen up as something! Can't wait!
