The Keller Halloween Spooktacular has become somewhat of a tradition in these parts.
This year, we began the festivities with the creation of the famous Frankensnack.
For a step-by-step tutorial on how to make the famous dessert we enjoy every year, click here (only we use a sharpie marker to draw the face instead of painting it with chocolate. Much easier.)

Mixing up the pudding
Then we made some creepy crawly bug juice.
The bug juice was a disgusting new addition to the Spooktacular this year.
this tasty treat was a big hit. Thank goodness this was part of the menu since the bugs were the only part of the meal Brendan actually consumed.
Then it was on to the annual pumpkin carving contest, although I'm not really sure why we even call it a contest. Megan wins every year.
Don't believe me?

The election is less than two weeks away.
I thought it was pretty clever.
John made fun of it.
Imagine John's trying-to-sound-like-an-idiot voice . . .
"Yep, I wasn't sure who I was going to vote for until I saw that pumpkin and now the decision is so clear!" John, you are such a wiseacre.
John also had an amazing pumpkin creation this year (not as amazing as the "Vote Keller" pumpkin) but I have no photo of it yet. He was still working on it when I retired my camera for the evening. Don't worry too much. It will be included in the Halloween photos I'm sure.
And that, folks, was how we celebrated the Keller Halloween Spooktacular 2011.
