And you thought Halloween was over....

I hope your week was wonderful.
We had a nice quiet week enjoying the huge storm that hit my town.
I was cozy and warm and so thankful for that.
Still bummed about the election though.  I fear I will be disappointed for awhile.
I did come across this article and thought it was awesome.
I have to finish blogging about Halloween. 
 Since it is my favorite holiday, and the amazing Justin Hackworth came over to 
photograph my children, I really feel like I need to share.
The day was beautiful.  Warm and sunny. It was perfect.
Mr. Nielson carved pumpkins with the children while inside I made the 
traditional vegetable soup in pumpkin bread bowls before we set out trick-or-treating.
Trick-or-treating lasted a few hours.  We came home and showered the children and 
Mr. Nielson and I watched a scary movie, which wasn't scary at all, in fact I fell asleep.

Happy Halloween 2012!!
Goodbye till next year Halloween!
