Halloween Weeeeeeeek

It has been a week of activities and P-A-R-T-I-E-S!!!
Monday ...
We carved pumpkins.
(I developed my pictures and deleted them off my disc - BEFORE putting them on the computer :( )
Tuesday ...
We got 6-8 inches in our backyard. (No pictures of course.)
Thursday ...
School Parades.
The kindergartners paraded the classroom early so I didn't get to see Hayden.
He planned to dress as Batman but found out a few other boys planned to be Batman so he changed his costume last minute.
He was a Wounded Soldier
Mackay's parade was later and "Open to the Public".
He was a Pittsburgh Steeler Fan (???)
Josh joined me for the parade.
I don't know why but it made me miss my mom (what's new, right?).
She would go to the parades. Those of us without kids in school would dress up our little ones and go with with her. She would have loved watching our kids and having Josh bring his little ones.
Josh forgot his boys costumes but we managed to find two matching costumes.
Sorry, Ben... You took one for the team!!

Friday ...
Kenzie got to dress up at school.
She was a Panda Bear.
Saturday ...
After Football we waited for the RAIN and WIND to lighten up,
then got ready to Trick-or-Treat!
Mackay was Joker
Hayden was a Soldier.
Mackenzie couldn't decide... A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle or an M&M.
(No pictures of Kenz :()
Aaron took Hayden out for a while in the rain.
Mackay went with friends until he got poked in the eye.
Mackenzie went out with friends for a few minutes but then watched movies.
Sunday ...
Finally the REAL Halloween!!!
We had a family party with Chili, Grilled Cheese, Salad, Apples with Toffee dip, and fun Halloween Dessert and ...
We played "Trick or Treat" (Fear Factor Style) -
Forced Games with Gross Food!!
We also did the "Hands On" Body Part Story - it is always a kid favorite.
Bug in a sucker
Anchovy FilletsSome how we managed to make Halloween last ALL WEEK LONG!!
Can't wait for Thanksgiving!

I love all the costumes. Jenn and Scott look super cute and so do our kiddos. I missed all of you this year. We had a quiet Halloween:( but it was fun. I just miss my family esp during the holidays.

I meant to say "your kiddos" not "ours"--weird!!
