pre-halloween wrap up!

I know I'll still have more to post as we continue festivities in the next week, but I haven't blogged in awhile so I thought I'd update you on what's been keeping us so busy! ;)
After church last Sunday we were supposed to head to the pumpkin patch but instead we got our first rain of the year.  We rescheduled for the next day but didn't want to just sit at home either so we went with some friends to buy "store bought" pumpkins at WinCo and have a carving party!
family pumpkins <3

Eric Northman from True Blood...way harder to carve than I thought!
a glowing Eric Pumpkin!

Unfortunately, a combo of bad pumpkins and weird weather patterns made the pumpkins go bad REALLY fast.  I thought the kids would cry, but they just thought it was funny!

Eric Northman meets the true death....

The next day we did, indeed, go to the pumpkin patch.  It was smaller than the one we have gone to in years past but it's free to get in, which is a huge plus (especially with my budget!), and the kids still had a lot of fun!

Calliope's first pumpkin <3

We had a pretty standard week, and a yard sale on Friday and Saturday, and while rain shut that down about an hour early it stopped just in time to go to the city of Brentwood's trick or treat event! 

The girls were so excited to wear their costumes for the first time!

even mommy got in on the action :)

They were even more excited to get treats!!
And Miss Callie-Bug got some treats too :)
Next weekend we are hosting a Halloween party on the 30th, our UU church is having a harvest festival during the morning Sunday service, and I'm sure we'll think of something good to do that evening!  Can you tell that Halloween is one of my favorite holidays??? :)
