Last night, we enjoyed spending the evening with the Pankratz family. Of course, we enjoyed delicious food. Besides the big pot of yummy chili that Michelle made, we both made some sides, including a few "themed" items.

This spider cheeseball

Michelle's peanut butter spider cookies and my owl cupcakes. 

Followed, of course, by trick or treating. It was a gorgeous evening to be out. The high was in the 70s yesterday, and the evening was still mild and pleasant.

Aubrey can't say "trick or treat," but her thank you and bye bye earned her lots of smiles.

We didn't stay out too long, and everyone was still in good spirits when we returned. Abe was eager to hand out candy at the house, and was quite sweet - looking for trick or treaters to offer candy to.

The little ones wisely gathered around Wayne to enjoy some of their loot.

We had a great evening! :)

Aubrey looks like such a little goof! I love her little butterfly costume and am super impressed with your spider cheese ball. :>)

oh my, your little munchkins are looking so sweet. i love the costumes. remember when we would have some church function instead of halloween? good times. it can be such a fun holiday but my butt can't ever seem to get it together to find/make anything for the kids to be. so alas, they have missed out. another generation of no halloween has been passed on to the Detwiler kids. maybe one of these years. although as long as they get some candy - they could care less. good work this year!
