We were in and out of there pretty quickly, even though I'm pretty sure that AJ would have liked to stay all day. We could have stayed longer, but someone (ahem *hubby* cough, cough) didn't dress warmly enough. As it was, we let AJ pick out a few pumpkins and then we headed home. She literally was running around yelling, "PUMPKIN!"
I did manage to take one picture, though.

We got our pumpkins Saturday morning and then I
In the end, they turned out nice!

Our pumpkins sitting in from of our house. Apparently its SUPER dark where we live. Ha!
I've been looking forward to taking AJ trick-or-treating all week and of course now she has a terrible cough, runny nose and is not feeling well at all. I'm probably going to try to get her in to see the doctor tomorrow, so trick-or-treating may have to wait until next year. : (
We will, however, be celebrating Halloween with the only dinner I've ever eaten on this spook-tacular holiday, "Beanie Halloweenie!" The recipe is simple (most likely my mom* created it because it was easy to cook when we were out trick-or-treating as kids).
1 family-sized can baked beans
1 package hot dogs
Place all ingredients*** into a square glass baking dish. Bake 30-ish minutes or until liquid is bubbly.
*Please note that this is a super trashy recipe and my mom will not be pleased that I shared this with you.
**Also note that its freakin' delish!
***I always add a squirt of mustard and ketchup, plus a generous tablespoon (or three) of brown sugar to my baked beans.
