"The" Halloween Post

This wouldn't be a blog without a post about Halloween. So here it is. When Kendall got home we carved pumpkins. I know, a little late. But better late than never. The kids picked the designs, and Avri enjoyed helping, but Talmage didn't want to sit still to do something like carve pumpkins. Avri's is the witch. Talmage's is the smiley face.
And here is Kendall's pumpkin. However, it was carved a couple of weeks ago, so it is looking a bit sad and wilted.Then we ate dinner and got dressed up. Mom is not in the picture because the extent of her costume was an orange shirt and Halloween socks. No time by the time everyone else is dressed.Avri was SO EXCITED to be Snow White. She was bummed though that I wouldn't let her wear her Snow White shoes, which are the toy plastic heels.Talmage made a cute giraffe.And Macie got to be the turtle (you can't see the shell that is on the back.

Mercedes thought the candy was great! She was chewing on something almost the whole time, until she just got so tired that she fell asleep in the middle of trick-or-treating.We got home and dumped out our loot and I couldn't get the wrappers off the candy fast enough for Talmage, so I think he ate a couple of them with the wrappers still on. Then we took the silly string that they got outside and had a war.It was so funny to watch them! They didn't like it until I plastered Kendall with it and he was getting me, then they decided it was okay. Some got on Mercedes though and she freaked out. But I just laughed the whole time. It was pretty funny. We got them all sugared up and my parents came over and decided to take them home for a slumber party. Which was fine with us since they were now BOUNCING off the walls. So we sent them away and watched "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken." (Kendall is a HUGE Don Knotts fan, in case you didn't know!) That is my kind of scary movie!! Fun times.

Wow! You guys look like professional pumpkin carvers! We carved pumpkins Halloween afternoon and I was cussing every minute of it. Dang I wish we could have found time to enjoy that activity earlier in the week.
