Kendall's work threw a little Halloween party for the kids. We decided to let the kids pick out of the costume box what they wanted to be, so all their costumes were a little small, but they were at least warm. In case you can't tell, Mercedes is a turtle, and she is standing up here with a little help from Avri.
The party was fun. They served hot dogs and chicken nuggets, juice boxes and chips. They had hay rides in the parking lot (which was cold), pumpkins for each child to decorate, and a bag of goodies. They also did pictures and bobbing for apples. We were the first to bob, so the water was still clean and I wasn't against it. We told Avri to reach in the water with her mouth and grab and apple. I got the camera ready and she pulled it up, first try without any trying at all! I couldn't believe it. She cheated because she grabbed the stem, but I was proud of her for being smart enough to think of that.
Talmage, on the other hand wasn't tall enough, so they kept bringing over more water to bring the level of the water up. Once that was done he still didn't get it, so he would just stick his face in the water. He wasn't really getting the point that you were supposed to TRY to get an apple. So we just gave him one and moved on.
We all had lots of fun and it wasn't too long, so mom and dad were happy.
