Tis The Eve of All Hallows Eve....

Happy Halloween! Here is the friendliest (least scary) skeleton you have ever seen, and the sweetest little pumpkin.
I don't have too many pictures of Anna and Benjamin together YET, but here's one.

We went to a Halloween party (trunk-or-treat party) at our church this past Saturday. It was really fun: yummy snacks, fun games for the kids, a hay ride, and trick-or-treating around the parking lot. Anna's excitement for Halloween is very contagious. I even dressed up like a cat because Anna was very concerned when I told her I didn't think I was going to dress up. (She let it slide with daddy though.) The pictures above are all of the party: Ben making his meanest skeleton face - while trying to swipe treats from the snack table, Anna and Ethan on the hay ride, and the last picture is of the kids and I back in the church warming up after trunk-or-treating.

Anna was very smiley while going through her loot with daddy looking on...and sneaking a few pieces here and there. Anna was way into the taught her right Grandpa Dewey.

Just thought I'd throw these other October pictures in here too: The pumpkins Anna and I painted, the bigger pumpkins we did Mr. Potato Head-like faces on, and the pine cone people we made for a Family Night a few weeks back.
We are getting our fill of Halloween festivities around here. Last Saturday was the party at church. Anna and I have been playing the "trick-or-treating" game numerous times this week. Tonight we watched "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown". Man, that is such a great movie! Tomorrow the kids dress up for Anna's playgroup at "school". And tomorrow night I'm taking Anna and her friend Aiden trick-or-treating around the apartments here. How does that work, you may ask? I was wondering that myself. (As in, how do you know which apartments want trick-or-treaters since, you know, there isn't a porch light. It was a big mystery to me all month:) Well, just today we got our newsletter with a sheet of paper to hang on your door tomorrow night. That signifies that little kiddies are welcome for the tricks or the treats. So, now you know. Hope you're all having just as much fun celebrating Halloween as we are!
