Happy Halloween from the Nelli Crew!

How is it November already!  The kids had a lot of fun last night celebrating Halloween.  Our house was buzzing with activity as we got costumes ready, gathered the trick or treating pumpkins and yes, waited not so patiently for Mom to take pictures.  Sorry kiddos, gotta do it!

Lia picked the pumpkin and design this year but Chris gets carving credits.  David researched how to roast pumpkin seeds and gets credit for that... they sure were tasty.  The secret is simple:  Wash and dry seeds (messy), drizzle with melted butter, sprinkle with sea salt and bake for 45 minutes at 300 degrees.  Mmmm....

Lia decided to be a black cat this year.  Make credit goes to her big sister.  Do note however that acrylic paint may not be the best choice for costume make-up.  It is difficult to wash off!

David and Emily went as characters from the show they like:  Miraculous Ladybug  (see pic below)

I had low expectations as to whether Isaac would dress up or not... Once we got the costume box down from the attic, he started pulling out armor and putting it on and well, he's a boy.... so he'll always carry around a sword!  So we just went with that...

And they are all here for this "annoying" picture that Mom always has to take and delaying us from leaving and having any fun at all... Yes, I know.  Get over it.  But look, most of them are actually smiling.  :-)
