October 31, 2008 - Friday


We all had a great Halloween! We had a full day of fun things starting with Jack-o-Lantern pancakes. We did Halloween crafts and carved and decorated pumpkins. We made Halloween cupcakes and had other special "treats" throughout the day. When Pete came home, we had a "ghost hunt" with cloth covered lollipops hidden (scattered) through the yard. We went trick-or-treating around our neighborhood then ended the evening on a hayride and with a bonfire with some friends from church. The kids loved the hayride. Logan fell asleep in my lap, Carter thought it was a giant bouncy toy, Peyton was a little scared but still enjoyed it, and Drew just had fun! It was a great day.

Picking out Pumpkins
We went to a produce stand to get our pumpkin this year. We can't find an actual "patch" but we are still on the hunt for future pumpkin gatherings. The kids enjoyed looking at all of the pumpkins. Drew tried to pick them all up because he is "so strong." Peyton enjoyed looking for ladybugs since that was the first thing that she saw when we got there. She thought every pumpkin had their very own ladybug.
