This Halloween we had "secret plans and clever tricks," to quote the Roald Dahl book we read recently at Barnes & Noble about a mastermind crocodile who wants to eat " nice, juicy" children. We planned for Joe to be Jonah from the Bible story and for me to be the rainbow fish from the children's book (much thanks to Elise for the idea). We were going to make our car into the whale with big white teeth in the trunk and a tail in the front so that Joe could sit inside while we passed out candy to the kiddos at the ward trunk-or-treat. However, the weather was rather bleak and rainy that day and we ran late so it didn't quite work out the way we planned.
Joe did dress up as Jonah though and I threw together a rainbow fish costume the night before so we were Jonah and the fish or as one girl guessed the old man and the sea. After the ward trunk-or-treat and chili cook off we went to a fun Halloween Party where we got to chat with some friends.

Joe said, "We look like rockstars!" I think by that he means he looks like a rockstar. I look like a fish. haha - Joe got tired of wearing most of his Jonah costume pretty quick.

On Halloween night we had no plans. We had gotten some candy and hoped some little ghouls would stop by trick-or-treating. Joe wanted to get a movie so we stopped off at Hastings where we ran into two couples from our ward! Joe invited one of them over for games at our place and they accepted! After pizza, jenga, and lots of fun they left and Joe and I were excited to have just had our first guests over to our apartment (besides family). Alas, there were no trick-or-treaters to be found, but that didn't stop me and Joe from eating all the candy in the house. Happy Halloween!
