Low-Key Halloween... just the way I like it

In a vast contradiction to last year's Halloween, Matthew and I thankfully enjoyed a calm weekend with friends. Last year was quite dramatic so I'm so glad that we didn't have a repeat situation.

Friday night we tagged along with our great friends Matt & Megan for dinner, pumpkin carving & trying to scare some kids at a Halloween party. Some of the older kids at the party commented on how they weren't scared this year, so Matthew & Matt hid in a field with a chainsaw to scare them on the hayride. I'm pretty sure they were freaked out, whether they wanted to admit it or not!

Saturday we had a garage sale at my house and made $322 to put towards our mountain trip! :) I was shocked to make that much money, especially since I felt like I was selling everything for a quarter. I'm not very good at garage sale pricing because I always think about how much I originally paid for them.

Molly, Matt & Megan's baby, dressed up as Snow White for Halloween. Isn't she the cutest thing ever??? She HATED her costume though!

Pumpkin carving took way more concentration than I was prepared for on a Friday night, but we had a lot of fun making them! Mine & Matthew's pumpkin is the bat on the left.
