Next up.... Pumpkin Carving. We had the seniors over & carved pumpkins. This was the girls first time to carve a pumpkin. Kennedie loved it & was into it the whole time... Sawyer didn't really care-- she was just enjoying playing outside & didn't want to be bothered. I only got a picture of the after.... this pretty much sums it up:
Round three entailed the church's Trunk of Treats. The girls LOVED playing all the games, seeing their friends, dressing up, and of course the candy. Kennedie was loving the bounce house and probably would have stayed in there all night if we let her. Sawyer did NOT love the bounce house & didn't want anything to do with it. Preslee just enjoyed taking it all in. Not too many pictures because I had SO much to carry between Preslee & the baskets that kept ending up in my arms.
Here are Sawyer & her buddies:
Preslee & her buddy Elliot:
Kennedie and a couple of her buddies:
Round four was a trip to the pumpkin patch with Kennedie's school. It was a fun day picking out a pumpkin, riding on the hay ride, feeding the animals, going through the maze, and enjoying a family picnic:
The finale..... Halloween & getting to go trick-or-treating! We started the fun off by going to the court house to do some trick-or-treating at Mom's work. We did this last year also & both times we were pleasantly surprised by how much candy the girls got & how many offices within the court house participate. No pictures from that though. Then it was off to see Momma Jean & Poppa:
Then this year instead of heading out to Mom & Dad's house for some trick-or-treating we headed to the square. My dad was working and we decided on eating dinner down on the square since we had a coupon. So, the girls got their annual picture with Cowboy and Bee:
Unfortunately with all the the craziness around, we didn't get our standard family picture. I did grab one with my favorite little dragonfly:
After dinner we headed back home. While I fed Preslee Lantz took the girls to a few neighbors' houses for some trick-or-treating. That didn't last too long because the girls came back to pass out some candy at our house. We finished the night off at one of our neighbor's-- roasting marshmallows.
All in all, we had a great time celebrating with lots of fall fun!
