Luckily we had a place indoors to go for Halloween since it was so rainy and cold out tonight! We went to the Halloween carnival at Grandmas church:) The kids were so excited, Mina put on her costume at like 8am!
Gettin' Ready,

We got to see grandma!

and Lexi

Buddy Preston was there

It was fun to play games

and get candy!

Did you get anything good buddy?
they had family photos

and even a train!

Cute pic of the kids (apparently I went as the Kool Aid man, or maybe the double chin monster-Yikes! Scary:)

Did you guys have fun?

Mina did! Max?.......Max?

Awww, I'm glad you had fun buddy:)
And when we got home it was time to taste some of our treats!

All in all a great Halloween:) I LOVE my cute little family!!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYBODY!! Hope yours was safe and fun:)

No Pumpkins

Well today we were supposed to go to the pumpkin patch with playgroup, but several gals were sick and those who weren't had people in town or were just pumpkind out! So we canceled:( It was probably a good thing though because it poured rain all day and we wouldn't have ended up going anyway! So instead the kids and I stayed in and had this

They LOVED it!

Is that good buddy?

Did you get enough?

what do you think Bee?


sometimes I'm just glad for lazy hot chocolate days:)

10th annual Pumpkin Carving Party!

I can't believe we've been doing this for 10 years! But yes it's that time again, for one of our many fall traditions...Pumpkin carving! We got everything all snazzied up:)

John did his part getting ready:)

and the kids got their costumes on

Then, bring on the parade of kids in costumes... oooo a scary witch!

Cute Kailey and Amelia

and another pretty princess named Kailey:)

Cute friends and spidermans!:) Addie was a flapper! So cute! I didn't get a pic of sister Lily's costume but she was Jasmine:)

Wild thing Caleb tiger!

That costume didn't last long!

 Little Aidan in his kimono! What a cutie!

There was much eating

and then, Let the carving begin!!

Kevin got into it!

The only evidence I have that the Forresters were here is this creepy photo of Scotts hand! What were you doing Scott?

Mina had been excited ALL day to carve her pumpkin, she really liked it:)

and Max had fun too of course

Daddy helped

Max enjoyed stabbing the pumpkin a little too much!

I managed to get a few pics of finished pumpkins

and I got a cute belly picture with one of my (many!) other pregnant friends Heather:)

Yes she IS pregnant, just not as much as me!
Saturday night was FIGHT NIGHT!- no pics:( but we had a good group of people over to watch. So today we were TI-RED. After church we watched this with the kids

The kids absolutly LOVED it! They have really gotten into watching Scooby-Doo cartoons lately and I think they really thought the characters were the REAL. And I think John wants to move to Spooky Island (or at least recreate it here!:) It was cute cuddle family time:)

I LOVE my family and friends SO much and am so blessed to spend these times together and make wonderful memories:) Thank you everyone, we had so much fun!
