We kicked off Halloween a week early by carving pumpkins together. (Not a good idea to carve that early if you are wanting your pumpkins to last longer than a couple days.)  Savor this picture because next year at Halloween those boys will all be graduated and we will be forced to carve pumpkins without eachother!
 Rocky is old enough this year to enjoy the festivities- we took him trick or treating at Joe's school campus with his best bud Cameron the Dinosaur.  I know it's hard to tell in his homemade costume but he is the incredible hulk!  Not pictured: His incredible hulk hands- dad is carrying them in order to help him have access to the candy bowls.
Only in AZ- a quick cool down in the sprinklers after walking the campus for candy.  An interesting side note- the Dental program at Midwestern gave away toothbrushes and toothpaste for all the little trick-or-treaters.  Rocky loves brushing his teeth so much that he discarded the sucker he was working  on to rip open his new Diego tooth brush.  He brushed his teeth the whole rest of the time.  Good boy.
The Annual Halloween Bashers
pictured more closely:
The Weatherspoons: The Punisher, The Incredible Hulk, A Professional Wrestler
                                          The Esplins: Princess Peach and Mario
Jared and Ashley: Clark Kent and a Halloween Angel
The Nuckles: Hulk Hogan!(Personal Fav.) Andre the Giant, Dino, and Bat
 So every year all of us have kept our costumes a complete secret from eachother until the night of the party.  Despite how things may look here there was no collaborating between Andy, Jon, or I to all show up as wrestlers.  I always knew I felt a kinship with those Nuckles, now I know why...
Joe's party food contribution: A watermelon sitting in it's own throw up. yumm
My contribution: Worms and ice cubes.
                                           What is that? A flaming pumpkin?
 Brian's exact words before bobbing for this apple, "I have never done this before,"  The suprised look on his face made believers out of all of us, including Hulk Hogan, even when it only took him 5 seconds to come up with it!
