Halloween and other Fall fun

Shaggy and Daphne
This Fall has been a busy one for the Vandermarks, but it's been a lot of fun - trips to the zoo, a couple of football games, the circus (and not just the one at our house!) and a couple of Halloween parties.

Joe and I had a great time at our friend's Halloween party.  The theme was 80's TV characters, so we went as Shaggy and Daphne.  There were some really great costumes there - the Love Boat, Who's The Boss, Falcon Crest, the Jetsons, Baywatch and more - even Clara from the Where's the Beef commercials and the Trix bunny.   We made some Jello shots to share, including a special chocolate-covered cherry one that we chronicled in the photo album (Yum!!).

Zach and Alex went as Thing 1 and Thing 2 this year.  It's the perfect "twin" costume, and well, it really fits them. :mrgreen: They were particularly excited about their blue hair and really loved it when people commented about it.  They got to wear it two days in a row, going to Joe's company Halloween party and visiting Grandma's office one day and then to the HallZOOween party at the MN Zoo the next.  Cole reprised his costume from years past as a Roman soldier (why change when it's a great costume, right?).  Check out the Sept - Oct 2009 album for pictures from zoo, plus other Fall fun, like pumpkin carving and more.
