First up, the pumpkins. Hopefully sometime soon I can share the photos from our fall shenanigans at pumpkin patches and what not. We picked two pumpkins out of a pumpkin field and we received one more at a halloween festival. The boys set out to decorate them using a new set of carving tools S found at Target. They decided to score the picture into the pumpkin, instead of cutting all the way through, and score the backside so you could see it glow. It worked pretty well. LM was the producer and director of the operation, choosing the designs and dictating their flow.
While the carving was going on, BB and I were very helpful. BB moved all around the house, occasionally requiring someone to retrieve him. Then, he decided to rummage through the pantry. In there, he found some cheese-it packets left over from football snacks. He decided to pulverize those for us. I took photos, of course, including a selfie. See how helpful we were? I know! So helpful!
The pumpkins came out great anyway!
Now we move on to the costumes. LM had his face painted at a harvest festival we attended, and we went to a halloween festival at the sports complex with his little friend Clayton. Friday morning, BB's Kindermusik class dressed up, so he participated. Then, there was a class party at school and the actual day of Halloween neighborhood shenanigans.
The cutest batman around.

Clayton has been the same thing for Halloween for three years. He really likes this costume! I think it's so cute, and clearly his mom made a good investment!
Here is a side-by-side of LM and BB in this lion outfit.
On to the class party!
The dressed up, and then the K-5 classes had a parade!
Our sweet neighbor friend!
LM's little buddy from preschool that is now in kindergarten with him too!
And Clayton was there too!
Then we went to the classroom for a party!
We read a story...
And we did a fun dance...
And we had a snack!
These cuties came to the party!
And the room moms dressed up as their kids...I know, you're glad I told you.
Now, on to Halloween!
We were "Lions and Tigers and Bears! Oh my!"
The neighborhood dressed up and looked great!
Cute little lion.
Then it was time for trick-or-treating...
...and visiting our friends and neighbors.
There you go. We did it up big. And, now we are on to November! Phew!
See you soon.
