Halloween Festivities

Their witch pumpkin... they do it every year.

Digging out the pumpkin guts. Grace was content to just sit there and let Cayden and Laura do the dirty work.

This little girl was a pumpkin gut scooping champ. Cayden gave up within minutes because it was gross, but Laura kept at it.

Proud of their scary and silly pumpkins.

Got this lovely gem of Grace while trying to take a decent picture. Hahahahahahahaha!

The pumpkins in all their glory.

Decorating pumpkins at Chad's work Halloween party.

Playing some games.

Watch out for these dangerous wizards. Btw, Cayden told me that he thought it would be much cooler if it were called 'Warthogs' instead of 'Hogwarts'.

Mummy dogs for dinner!

Halloween Sneak Peek

Here's a sneak peek of the kiddo's Halloween costumes. I think they are pretty dang cute. :)

The Vampire

The Baker

The Witch 
(Whether she's a nice witch or a mean witch depends on her mood. In my opinion, she's too dang cute to be a mean witch.)

The whole gang. We're going to get a lot of use out of these costumes in the next week and they're all pretty dang excited. Love these cuties of mine!

Cutest Pumpkins in the Patch

We made it to the pumpkin patch this past weekend and yes, I had the cutest pumpkins there. By far. ;) The kids enjoyed it just as much as last year. Since we grew our own pumpkins this year we went more for the fun rather than to pick out pumpkins. It's safe to say that we'll be back again next year.

Silly pictures...

...and fun games. I love the look of concentration that Grace has on her face when tossing rings on the pumpkins. And that tongue of hers! (Must take after her mom and Grandma.)

Cayden and Laura enjoyed the bounce house. Grace refused to go until their time was about up and then she was mad because she couldn't have a turn. 

LOVE this picture of Laura. Her face, her hair... she had a blast!

Playing in the corn pit. It could have used more corn, but Cayden still enjoyed it.

Pretending to be firefighters.

Cute kids. I think Laura was pulling back pretending to stop the tractor/trailer thing; made for an epic face. :)

Playing on the giant tires. Cayden and Laura are in the background on the huge tire. At one point all the kids hopped down in there and then of course couldn't climb back out. You would have paid to see a pregnant lady try to pull them out of there. Haha! But not really.

Love her cute little hop off the tire.

And now for the favorite activity of the day... pedal carts!

Driving the big cart.

Racing and obviously Laura doesn't care that she's losing.

Working hard - it was hard for those little legs to keep pedaling for 15+ minutes.

Racing daddy. Zoom in and look at Laura's face. She's having so much fun!

Gracie started out riding behind Chad and loved it. She even got a little wild and threw her hands up in the air.

After about 5 minutes Grace decided that she wanted to ride by herself. We weren't sure how'd she do, but she pedaled great! She had some slight steering issues so Chad had to follow her around the course; obviously we need to work on looking where we're going.
