Well it was a full weekend of Halloween; actually, it started on Thursday with a sneak-peek of Lucy's costume as she got to dress-up for preschool:
Then on Friday we went (we = me, Lucy, and Wren) to story-time all dressed-up and got to trick-or-treat to a few desks there. :) Then later the same "we" went to school to see Jonas' and Emmy's school parade and attend Emmy's classroom party.
Miles, who wore his costume all day at school (and was a little nervous that no one else would be dressed up . . . but luckily that wasn't the case), carved this little pumpkin when he got home from school:
That night was our trunk-or-treat at church. Emmy's costume was one that I finally got around to making on Tuesday - yes 3 days before she needed it! But it came together and she really, really loved it. This picture shows you the wings from the back:
And, finally, here is my whole gang:
Then came the actual Halloween day. We spent the morning cleaning and doing our Saturday chores - fun, fun! We managed to get out on a hike with Brigham and that was nice. Then we came home and the kids watched a Halloween show. Then we finally got around to carving pumpkins. Then dinner. Then trick-or-treating! I actually decided to stay home and hand-out candy. Ben went with our kids and some neighbors for a bit and then came back with the girls. The boys got to go with the neighbors some more and came home a little before 9. They had an awesome time.
It was a fantastic Halloween for the kids, I would say!
The boys did all their carving . . . the girls drew theirs and then Ben carved them. It was fun to have a bunch of pumpkins on our porch. (We were going to get pumpkins today . . .but last night at the trunk-or-treat a lot of "decoration" pumpkins were just left - perfect for us! We didn't have to buy any!)
