Halloween 2010!

Getting ready to go trick or treating with our good friends, the Newmans!
The boys had a good time going out with their friends... although, both Ian and Luke got really tired after the 2nd street, and we ended up coming back early. Oh well, they had a good time anyway!

They were all so very cute!

Halloween Pumpkins!

This is Dave and my pumpkin! We couldn't decide what we wanted to do, so I just picked a pattern and did it. It turned out pretty cool, if I do say so myself! You can't tell, but is says "D&A" on the bottom! hahah

Mason's Pumpkin Carving

Mason LOVES his pumpkin, and even says it really well, "PUN-KIN" or "my Pun-kin!" But once we started cutting the holes in the tops of them, he recited the line in "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown", where Linus says to Lucy, "Awe... you didn't say you were going to kill it! awwwweee!" It was so stinkin' cute!
Mason didn't really want to touch the pumpkin at all this year... he would rather color on his paper and let mom do all the work. Oh well, turned out pretty cute though!
Good job, Mason, and MOM! :)

Luke's Pumpkin Carving

Luke was ok with getting into his pumpkin, I think he'll be the surgeon of the family. He did think it was kind of sticky, but he did a lot of it. I had to help him draw his face and carve it since I don't trust him yet with the little knives. He liked his pumpkin and loved that we added 'horns' to it at the end!

Ian's Pumpkin Carving

This is the best picture ever! Ian started gagging when we got the top of the pumpkin off and started pulling out the 'guts'! It was so funny! But not to him! He really couldn't handle the sliminess of it all, and we had to clean out the 'guts' for him! so funny.
But this year, we let Ian carve his own and use the little knife. He did a fantastic job! Dave and him added the 'extras', the nose, tongue, and ears to make it super cool! Ian loved it!

Ward Trunk or Treating!

Wednesday Night, we had our Church's Chili Cook-Off and Trunk or Treating for the kids! It was really nice and the boys had a fun time! We decorated our trunk like a big mouth (thank you wal-mart!) and I think the boys liked handing out candy just as much as going around the parking lot to get candy! They were all very cute!

Elementary School Halloween Parade & Kindergarten Class Party!

Every year for Halloween, our Elementary school does an all school costume parade and parents and family can come and see their kids parade around the school and to the different classrooms! It's so fun for the kids, because they like to show off their costumes! This year for Halloween, Ian was Mario - from Super Mario Brothers video games - and Luke was Luigi (Mario's brother!) They were so cute! It was by far the most popular costume this year, because I saw at least a dozen 'Mario's' parading around!
Luke had his Kindergarten class Halloween party after the parade, and I volunteered to help. It was fun to see him having fun! They did an eyeball on a spoon relay, played 'musical pumpkin' (hot potato with a stuft pumpkin), and played Halloween Bingo. Ian also had his class party, but I wasn't able to go since both parties were at the same time! I think he had fun! They both got fun treat bags to bring home too!

Pumpkin Patch with the Kiddos!

Yesterday we took the boys over to Coulter's Pumpkin Patch! I like this pumpkin patch because they give you a free hay ride out to the field, the pumpkins are very reasonably priced, and they have a fun little playground where the boys can play... and it's free! The boys had a great time riding out to the patch, and it was a beautiful fall afternoon to spend together! Luke had a field trip the day before here, so he picked out a pumpkin for me since he got one for himself the day before. Ian, of course, wanted a big FAT pumpkin! He loves it! Mason was happy with any of them! He liked riding with the tractor and hayride! We're all set for Halloween now, except ONE costume! I still need to find one for Mason! Ian and Luke have their costumes and are ready to go! I can't wait to see what they want to carve their pumpkins into this year! I love Halloween!
