Costumes and Parade

The kids got to wear their costumes to school on Friday. Everyone had great costumes this year. Adam was Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead, one of his favorite shows, Jason was the Sham"wow" guy, Haley was Hermione from Harry Potter, and Abi was a little ladybug. I got pictures of all of the kids (except for Adam) at the school's parade.

Carving and Crying

The day after we got our pumpkins we had to carve them. Haley and Jason had a great time pretending to both eat and throw up the pumpkin guts.

Abi on the other hand had a hard day and could hardly function long enough to draw the face on her pumpkin. It all worked out and everyone got a pumpkin done. Adam's is a little different and not exactly carved, but it is done and dead all the same.

Picking Pumpkins

After school last week Lewis and I took the kids to the pumpkin patch to get pumpkins. The patch that we go to has tons of hay and corn stalks laid out to take pictures, a corn maze, and a ton of old tractors for the kids to climb on. The girls had a great time posing and the boys just picked out pumpkins. They also have a tractor takes you on a ride but we did not do that because we were starving and needed to leave and go to dinner.

Decorating Cakes

Abigail had a play date set up so I went to the store and got some decorating supplies. We decorated a ton of cupcakes. The girls had a great time and we got some yummy treats to eat!

Gardner Village

During UEA (a break from school) I took the kids to Gardner Village to see the witches and have some lunch. It was a very nice day with sunshine and warm temps. We ate sandwiches at the deli and walked around until we found the candy store. Each of the kids got one thing and we got a treat for Lewis too. Haley and Abi participated in the picture taking happily, Jason got in one or two and I think we managed to not get any of Adam at all.
