Happy Halloween!

I had volunteered to work at the Fall Festival on Sunday afternoon, so David took the kids home after church for them to get good naps (which they all did! :) ) and then brought them back up for the last hour or so of the festival.
We had Supergirl, Jango Fett, Boba Fett, and...
...Tigger!
This was where I stood for 3 1/2 hours...wishing I had realized I wasn't going to go home after church and had brought clothes (or at least shoes!) to change into...my feet were tired by the end of the night! :) It was fun though - who doesn't love inflatables! There were about 10 of them there, so my kids totally LOVED them!
They had a whole "preschool corral" area for the little bitties - which my 2 little bitties LOVED! David liked it because they got to play without fear of them getting lost because it was totally enclosed.







The plan was to get home, get some dinner in them, and then head out to trick or treat. But as we were driving into the neighborhood, kids were already out in full force and so dinner went out the window. The kids were ready to go! I switched into my tennis shoes and took the older 3 out while David stayed home to hand out candy and put Caleb in bed. It was the first time in...I seriously can't remember how long....that I got to take them out. I'm usually home nursing a baby/putting baby to bed/pregnant, etc - so this was really fun! We went with several neighbors and friends from school, so it was this mass herd of excited kids. Callie was TOTALLY into it this year...until she fell running up to a house and skinned her knee. I took her home to get a bandaid, eat some candy with David, and then go to bed. The boys and I continued on in their attempt to go to EVERY house in the neighborhood with their porch light on. But baskets got very full and very heavy, and little legs got tired. They finally gave up with about 2 streets left. We had a great time - i loved getting to talk just with them for a while! :)
David's 2 pumpkins this year - 1 castle, and...
1 Mario! :)

Those pumpkins are awesome! I'll have to show Chris, he's been really getting into the carving too. Me? I'm just glad to get the pumpkin seeds.
