What a busy day! First Houston had his Fall Festival at The Blake School. That was really great. They sure know how to put on a festival. The theme was superheroes and Houston's group at school is named the pickles. So Houston decided he wanted to be "Super Pickle" for Halloween. He came up with this all by himself too. I was amazed. He was going to be spiderman but then one day a couple weeks ago he came up to me and said "mama, I don't want to be spiderman anymore ... i want to be a superhero pickle". So I drew up the logo for his shirt and used one of those print your own iron on transfer things. I've been playing with a new graphics program lately making some ads for Rocket Yarn so I had fun making this logo. And then I made him a cape and ironed a bunch of pickles on it. I think it turned out pretty cute. Everyone at his school certainly got a kick out of it.

Here's Houston enjoying some popcorn at the festival. (i ate a bunch too, those people know how to make some popcorn!)

Here is Houston's class before we headed out back for the festival.

Here's Houston showing off the pumpkin he decorated for the contest at school.

Ready to go!

Brett got to man the octopus slide. See him in the background?

Now to the evening festivities. We joined some of our friends in Alachua for some trick-or-treating. Then we all went out to Kazbors for dinner, kids and all. I think we had 10 adults and 6 little ones. Amazingly we all left with our bellies full and our sanity intact. Our boys were especially well behaved ... probably because they were worn out from the day and too tired to want to run circles around the restaurant.

Nemo was a huge hit! We had at least three different people stop us and ask if they could take a picture of Brody. It was really funny.
