I am only about 3 weeks behind on my blogging. Sharing about Swaziland put everything else on hold. I don't want to miss out on having our Halloween festivities recorded. Halloween for us is about traditions, fun, friends, and CANDY!!
Every year, the kids beg to each have their own pumpkin to carve. Every year, it is just too painful for me to spend that much money on 6 pumpkins that I know will just rot on our front steps. This year, I was heading to Walmart to buy a couple of pumpkins. When I got there and saw that they were marked down to $2.50 each, I just had to surprise the kids with one for each of them.
At this point, Cody and Lauren were working on homework. They joined us later.
Some of my kids love this part, others hate it!!
Laila giving her mean face. Ooh, scary!
Love Abby's Africa
Cody carved flames
Lauren's pumpkin had quite the eyebrows and mustache
And, of course Sam is picking his pumpkin's nose
The Pumpkin Lighting
This kid was so much like him, it was actually scary.
He talked like him...
…and even learned the dance.
My little nerd...
…and her nerdy friends
We had a trio of Super heroes this year:
Are you surprised to see this?
Spider-man for the second year in a row
"I'm Batman"(said in a very husky voice)
Abby was a glow stick figure.
Blurry, but an idea of what it looked like
The back of my truck on the way to our friends' house.
I felt very safe!
The whole crazy crew
Trick or Treat!!
