Festive Halloween

Blakely and I have never been very festive during the Halloween season. Since we have been married we have not ventured into a corn maze, paid to be scared in a haunted house, or even taken the time to carve a jack-o-lantern! We have also avoided even attempting to dress up for any Halloween party. This year I determined was to be different.
Now, while you can not find a corn maze for miles in this part of Texas and we are still too cheap to pay to enter a haunted house, this October we carved pumpkins, made apple pumpkin muffins, pumpkin chocolate chips muffins, pumpkin pancakes, monster eyeballs (peanut butter truffles dipped in chocolate with an M&M on top to appear like an eyeball) AND we made Halloween costumes.
For those of you who missed a live demonstration of this costume, Blakely is a car wash and I am a car...or a girl in a car. Whichever makes most sense to you.
Turns out when you don't have kids and you still don't have a job, you have some extra time on your hands to hot glue hundreds of strips of blue felt to make this ridiculous awesome. And don't worry this fancy blue car came with a UTAH license plate ( I forgot to take a picture of the back). I remember where my roots are.
