Happy Halloween from The Garretts

We like to celebrate Halloween around here in a big, fun way...and as much as we can!

Darla, Nemo & P. Sherman
New York's weather was a little wet, but it didn't stop us from a little trick-or-treating.  We stopped by the Clifton Park Mall (with a couple hundred other families) to pick up some sugar.

As you can guess, things went really well.  Nemo loved constantly running the opposite direction we were going.  And laying in the floor.

Our festive front porch attracted 66 trick-or-treaters this year!  Thankfully the Barretts and the Garretts had enough candy!  We're lucky to have such fun neighbors who love Halloween as much as we do!

Can you find the Barretts in this picture??
Just a couple of Witches in Training!

 Happy Halloween!

Who You Gonna Call When Carving Pumpkins??

Last year, Colt wasn't much help when it came to carving pumpkins.  
This year, he wasn't afraid to get his hands dirty!

Brett broke out the heavy machinery for his pumpkin creation.  Who knew carving pumpkins were just another excuse to use that Snap-on hand drill?

Since we had just watched Ghostbusters at the Malta Drive-In a few weeks ago, we felt like we needed to honor the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.  

But it was Brett's disco ball pumpkin that really lit the place up!
