Halloween Pics

Twas a great Halloween, even though we didn't carve a single pumpkin. We had dinner with my sis and excellent brother-in-law who carved zucchinis for the kids. We trick-or-treated. We ate a little bit of candy. The candy fairy came and left us with The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: A Veggie Tales Movie, though not before she kindly put the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups into my private candy stash. Isn't she just the sweetest?
