A Visit Home and Halloween

Only a month behind on my posts!

So mid-October Damien had a random Thursday and Friday off from school so we used that opportunity to visit my family. It worked out perfectly because the weather was still nice and there wasn’t any holiday traffic. Scott packed up his whole computer so he could still work which ended up working out well. We played lots of poker, had an excellent Thanksgiving meal, and Damien and his uncle David created comics together. Such a great trip!

Ready for the 5-hour drive!

Damien decorated two pumpkins this year–a demon with a crown and a ninja. I think the ninja is super cute!
Our pumpkins on display. I tried to make a cat, but it looked more like a mouse and Scott made a green spider.
Our neighbor gave us a ton of apples from her apple tree so we made an apple pie. It looks a little “rustic” but it tasted good.

This was our first year trick-or-treating in Grand Forks so I took Damien up to the local mall to check out indoor trick-or-treating while Scott stayed home and passed out candy. We weren’t impressed so we came home and Scott took Damien trick-or-treating around the neighborhood and Damien had a much better time.

Damien chose a Halo costume this year. He LOVES the mask.
Assassin Damien. Should I be worried?
Scott and Damien came home from trick-or-treating a little bit early because Damien can’t see very well in the dark without his glasses. He was running, tripped, and tore a hole in his costume. Some nice people helped pick up Damien’s candy that spilled on the ground. He was fine.
