Living in Southern California, we really don't have much of a fall (this so deeply disappoints me, fall is my FAVORITE time of year!!), it really doesn't cool down much until we hit Halloween. By this time I'm ready to pull out my sweaters and boots and change over my wardrobe! Unfortunately I find myself in summerish type clothes far too much!! But...back to Halloween...
So, being that it is so warm in October, we really have to wait to the last minute to carve our pumpkins so they don't rot before halloween. So...nothing like REALLY waiting till the last moment. My husband went out the night before to go get a couple to carve, only to find that every store was sold out. Finally on the 4th store he found 2 small ones!! When the kids were in bed that night he prepped them so they'd be ready to be carved before they went to school on Halloween morning!
It was also Crazy Hair Day at school...hence the reason Anthony's hair is all crazy!!!
Finally old enough to cut them all 100% by themselves!!
The finished product! Looks great!!
We had a little neighborhood potluck and I decided to make a healthy dish that I found on Pinterest...turned out pretty good, but it definitely was a little more difficult than I expected!! LOL

Plus...I decided to bring my meal along with me as I was finishing up the Ultimate Reset, so here's my healthy Halloween meal!!!
Ok...Halloween night!! I realized I didn't get good pic of my kiddos in the hustle of everything, but here's a few! It's tradition that we always go trick-or-treating with the cousins...so they made the hour trek up and off we went!!
Cousins and Best Buddies
So, this was really awesome...We got back a little early from Trick-or-treating because it started raining. (Yes...the one day that it rains in probably over 100 days in Southern California is on Halloween night!)...well, we had run out of stuff to hand out at our house, so Anthony and 2 of his cousins decided to take their candy and hand it out to other kids coming to our door!! Seriously? That was the easiest way to get rid of candy EVER!!! So, he handed out most all of his candy and was only left with a small zip lock baggie full!!! Love it...train them to be healthy at a young age and this is what will happen!!!
