We are in full Halloween mode around here! Shane is busy building Halloween decor and our calendar is BOOKED. Every minute of the next 5 days is filled with Halloween activities. We had the pumpkin carving party last weekend. A church Harvest Festival which I spent 6 hours setting up/preparing food/cleaning up. (Being in the Relief Society Presidency is a full time job.)
Last night we went to the pumpkin patch for a (thankfully rainless) hayride and to enjoy some nighttime kettle corn and pig races. We're classy and we know it.
This time Collin actually got to pick a pumpkin.
(Instead of almost drowning in a cornfield like last week.)
Grandma sent Halloween shirts.
And may I add, all I said was "Let's take a photo to send to Grandma." This pose was all their own.
We had a chilly evening around the fire eating nutella smores.
I put Lydia to work.
Which Collin immediately thwarted.
We warmed up with a little spelling and hot chocolate.
I can't believe MY daughter is good at spelling.
Spelling used to make me cry. A lot. or is it alot?
She's so pretty.
Her hair is finally long enough to do a sock bun again.
One steadfast rule in our home....mommy picks Sunday clothes and hair. NO DISCUSSION.
Well, Shane can pick his own clothes.
In big family news, Shane is MAKING Lydia's Halloween costume. This was all his doing. He heard what she wanted to be, and had an idea and started to work. The costume debuts tonight at a trunk or treat, so I'll let you see on Monday. It's awesome.
Hope your family is up to some spooky fun this weekend!
