Halloween 2010

once again - here are our pics in reverse order. sheesh, i really need to work on this.

Halloween was a success! by the end of the wknd we were practically partied out and exhausted. luckily, the kids took a great nap before we headed out for neighborhood festivities and therefore, by 5pm, they were literally out the door before we were.

The Aftermath

sulley prefers to run during parades

sittin pretty, pre parade

when may we eat candy?

let's roll!

we probably only took the kids to about 15 or 20 houses. they loved running to the door and ringing the doorbell, when it was within their reach. sulley preferred to pick out colton's candy for him and colton liked to drop his candy in sulley's bag. Colton couldn't get off the doorstep before trying to open a piece of candy to eat and sulley just darted off to the next house.

Pre-Halloween festivities

So i guess we'll work backwards since my pictures are a little out of order.

We waited a little longer than usual to pick out the perfect Allen family pumpkin and finally picked it out yesterday afternoon. The week has flown by, mostly because I was concentrating on getting things together for the Halloween party i cohosted with my friend, Mary.

We cleaned it all the guts and let the kids have their own shot at scooping the junk while we supervised. Of course we used a pumpkin carving kit and in no time, our pumpkin turned into a masterpiece.

The Final Product

the dirty work

Ready to skip down the yellow brick road

The scarecrow, minus part of his headpiece.
I can't blame him though, i wouldn't want burlap wrapped around my head either.

Gearing up for Halloween!

okay so these aren't the most flattering pictures of miss sulley, but i just thought i'd post two of her in the very adorable and festive dress that baba made her for halloween! miss thang wasn't much for cooperating with the camera the other day so this will have to do!!

i'm a succor for anything festive so naturally it suits me to have my children dressed in the appropriate holiday attire. thank goodness for grandmoms that love to sew! sulley's been blessed with handmade blankets, bedding, dresses, hairbows, and halloween costumes! oh and dare i forget - both kids have also been blessed with a grandfather that loves to make furniture! hooray for handmade goods.

now go check out and buy handmade!

Pumpkin Patch, Take II

Of course one trip to Cox Farms isn't enough, so $60 later, the four of us were back in action having fun at the pumpkin patch. We still didn't make it on the hayride but had lots of fun going down slides, playing on bails of hay, listening to bluegrass music, and feeding the goats.
