Ok, get ready for picture overload! This post is probably best for the grandparents, family, and my dearest friends. (Friends: if I ask you a question about something in this post and you don’t know the answer then I’ll know where our relationship stands). 😉 We had a great weekend and a fun Halloween night! We kicked it off by (finally) carving our Jack-o-lanterns on Friday night.
The kids made designs on paper first, then drew them onto the pumpkins.
I took this picture just to show that the kids disappeared rather quickly once they were done drawing on the pumpkins! Henry said he wanted his pumpkin to say “hi” so this is what we came up with!
Charlie’s was rather detailed. He was actually disappointed when I said I couldn’t carve out the words, “BOO BOO.” Haha!
On Saturday, we went to a fall festival at a local park. The kids were a ninja, an Odd Squad agent, and a witch.
You can see our sweet friend Carol’s foot there next to the pile of toilet paper – after Henry’s fifth unsuccessful attempt to knock them down, she gave him a little helpful nudge!
Watch out, Batgirl! There’s a ninja behind you! It was fun to run into some friends!
Saturday night we went to a friend’s fall party/bonfire night. The big kids had fun shooting a bb gun for the first time!
Actually, Charlie had fun…once was enough for Sienna!
I love spending time with girlfriends. It’s a bonus when our kids like to play together too!
Tonight was beautiful weather to be out trick or treating!
Sienna was a “witch cat” and the rest of us were members of the Odd Squad, a show that the kids like.
Here’s a side by side comparison! The kids changed costume ideas about ten times, so I was glad when the boys settled on something that David and I could do with them! (I love family group costumes!)
“You look pensive.”
“Man, I was going for thoughtful.”
(I know the quote is not completely accurate, but who can guess the movie reference? Hint: it probably helps if you were in high school or college at the end of the 20th century! I watched this movie approximately 5 million times as a teenager.)
Sienna and her sweet friend from down the street. She actually carried a fake tree with her as part of her costume! She won for best “trending news” costume haha! We had a fun weekend and great night tonight. But I’m excited to be moving into the Thanksgiving season! From now until New Year’s is my favorite time of the year!!! I hope you had a great weekend and got to dress up and be goofy. Any other grown ups don a costume this year?
