Fall fun

Everyone knows Halloween is no my thing but this year I tried really hard to have a better attitude about it and it lasted right up until we were about half way done trick or treating Halloween night. As posted in a previous post we made Halloween lanyards, carved pumpkins, went to trunk or treat at the church and even did trick or treating Halloween night.

Pumpkin carving this year was a lot more fun than work because the kids are getting older. They helped clean them out and picked how they wanted them be carved. Justin helped Madisen while Tanner and I worked on his. He punched out the holes and I did the actual carving. Madisen gave words of encouragement to Justin as he patiently carved hers out and them she took all the credit for how awesome it turned out.

The fact that I didn't have to go to a store to buy the kids costumes this year helped keep my attitude in check. I wanted Madisen to be the cute Mad Hatter last year and she was not interested. So when I suggested it this year and she immediately agreed that it was a great costume was fantastic. She looked so cute! Tanner's costume was a little more complicated than Madisen's. He is getting to the age where he wants something gross and bloody and I draw the line at that. When he finally decided on Prince Caspian finding one was difficult since it was last years "it" costume. I tracked one down 10 days before before Halloween and it arrived at the house just a couple days before his big party at school.

Last but not least...after a few hours Tanner had had it with the itchy knight costume but still wanted to go with his cousins around grandma's neighborhood. So Justin gave him his funky teeth and wig and off he went as "the black hoodie puncher", which is really funny to our family who knows the back story behind the phrase "black hoodie puncher."

So here's to surviving another Halloween and to planning a party at a friends house for next year!!!
