Lincoln didn't try out as many costumes as Lilli did her first year. One of my co-workers found this baby-sized labcoat online and bought it for me. It's monogrammed "Dr. Q. T. Patootie".
Lilli was a scarecrow, just like last year. This isn't the greatest photo, but she was too busy being silly.
Here are our jack-o'-lanterns. Mine is on the left , Lilli's is in the middle, and Leann's is on the right. Lilli told me what she wanted and I carved it for her. Not too shabby!
In the week leading up to Hallowe'en, I bought some white almond bark. We melted it down  and poured it onto wax paper to make ghosts. We added semi-sweet chocolate chips for the eyes (and, in a few cases, a mouth).
And here is the final product. (For some reason Lilli refused to eat them.)
Oh, and a few days later I had my birthday. (That's supposed to represent 33 years, not 6.) I ate the cake for breakfast for the rest of the week.
Last, but not least, here are some of the autumn leaves I managed to photograph before the trees all became barren and the ground became covered with snow.
 Not because we endorse them, because we don't (see my post Hallowe'en), but rather to participate in the chili/soup cook-off that preceeded it. Lilli ran around and collected a lot of the table decorations. She came home with toy mice, spiders, flies, cockroaches, ants, bugs (in the entomological sense), centipedes, scorpions, snakes, and a grasshopper.

 As you can see, I wanted to incorporate the shape of Wisconsin into my jack-o'-lantern. I tried a couple designs (see below), but neither of them were working for me, so I just went with the basic outline. The hole was so big that the candles inside constantly sputtered and never really illuminated the pumpkin very well.
 When Leann and I were dating, I tried making these and they turned out horribly (gross-tasting and chalky). Since then I've learned that melting chocolate (or almond bark) is a bit tricky. On that occaision I probably microwaved the white almond bark too long and burned it. If you decide to try this (and don't want to invest in a double boiler), microwave for 5–10 seconds at a time, stirring in between, until the chocolate/almond bark is melted.
