Melissa and I took Rudy and Lilo to the Howl-o-ween Paw-ty at Woof's yesterday. They dressed up as a bride and groom (thanks Melissa), but we let them think it was their wedding paw-ty. Lilo won a game of first dog to get a treat out of a plastic bottle and Rudy bobbed for hot dogs!
We were not at the Bungalow last Halloween. We traveled to Tampa for the WVU/USF game and Guavaween in Ybor City instead. So this year was our first Trick or Treat in the 'hood. It was so exciting! Lilo wore her pumpkin best for the kiddies and we handed out Reese's peanut butter cups and Butterfingers. We had 19 trick or treaters!!
Our first trick or treaters were Thing 1 and Thing 2 (or Chuck and Leigh's kids, Colin and Charlie, from Jones Avenue). They were adorable. This was the first time both of them went trick or treating and we were their first house. Yay! Firsts all around. Both boys were perfect in their "Trick or Treat" pleads and "Thank yous." And they even added "See you Monday!" when they left. I guess they want us to come eat some candy with them or something.
Aren't they adorable?

It makes me sad to see that the last blog entry was Sept 24. I love October and its pumpkins. I need to kick it in gear and get some bloggy times for the Bungalow. Wait til you see the awesome pumpkin MIL Marie made for Mike and me. Oh, and a project that began last December is shaping up quite nicely. I haven't made mention of it here because it has been a very slow process. Hopefully there will be a big reveal soon.
Until then, check out the new home of our friends Jess and Brett. Isn't it pretty? My fave part is the arch window above the door. Jess used some punkin decorations we picked up last weekend to make it festive. Check out the wooden pumpkin with their last name on it located bottom right. CUTE.
Not to be outdone by Jessica's pumpkin cuteness, Courtney has a little pumpkin flair of her own on her front stoop. I'm jealous. Both gals purchased their decor at Pennsylvania's Annual Christmas Arts and Crafts Festival. We went on Oct 17. It was a blast!
