Hope you had a fun Halloween! We had a really great night of decorating our yard, handing out candy, and having our neighbors over for a “Trick-or Treat After Party”! A couple notes about Halloween in Charleston:
1. The weather is PERFECT for costumes! We grew up wearing snowsuits under our costumes and freezing our butts off in the chilly Minnesota fall, but last night kids were actually able to wear their costumes normally. Pretty awesome.
2. Turns out you cannot carve your pumpkins in advance here. We waited until last Sunday to carve our pumpkins and within 3 days our pumpkins started to mold! Here’s what they looked like on the night we carved them:
So cute right? But we had to throw them away before Halloween because they were disgusting. Wah wah. Instead we decorated our front porch with a luminary walkway, glow in the dark spider webs, and a flying bat.
We didn’t have as many trick-or-treaters as we thought, but the ones we did have were just the cutest! Apparently, there are some really good candy neighborhoods nearby that everyone goes to so our street was pretty quiet. Hopefully that changes as our kids grow up!
The girls were snowmen…
And we were a farmer, his cows, and his prize-winning pot bellied pig!
We kept the appetizers at the party pretty simple, but there were two recipes that we made that I wanted to share with you that were just delish:
This little six-month pregnant piggy stayed up with the group until 3am last night so today is going to be full of naps and doing a whole bunch of nothing!
