Our Pumpkins and a Skate Party

We finally carved our pumpkins. Now we know they'll last until Halloween.

AHH! Teresa's pumpkin is eating her hand!

Nathan did a lot of his pumpkin, the little eyes were too hard though

Wrapping his Mummy Pumpkin

All four all lit up(Nathan's, Teresa's, mine, and Jonathan's)

Nathan and I went to a Halloween skate party(I'm a bat)

Nathan's come a long way with skating

He was one of the costume contest winners
And it's not even Halloween yet...

(Wednesday is Scarecrow day at school - stay tuned)

Nathan's school had a Trunk-or-Treat Fall Fundraiser last night. It turned out great and everyone had a lot of fun.

Cupcakes for the cupcake walk
Thank you to Teresa and Alex who helped frost them.
We were crazy busy Friday, but we got everything done in time.

Cake I made for the winner of the best trunk

Our trunk and Indiana Jones handing out candy


The Kindergarten Cupcake walk - Teresa and Alex made the sign for me

Another game - knock the monsters head off with bean bags.
Nathan was so excited when he succeeded

Nathan got silly string from the door he chose

Bounce houses. I was in charge of all the games and bounce house volunteers
So I didn't get pictures of Teresa in her costume and
Teresa and Alex helping me run some of the games.
They were life savers, along with my parents

Nathan in his costume with a little fog in the background
(no, he's not wearing vampire teeth, no need)

I'll get better pictures of the costumes(including mine) on Halloween.

Field Trip

Nathan went on a field trip to the fire station today. They had a good time!

The first exciting part, riding on the bus

Here are the fire fighters shortly after we got there, looking at a call they got

Here they are leaving(The other engine had already gone on an emergency)

So, off to the park to play in hopes the firefighters got back in time

Which they did and the kids were able to get the full tour

Pretending to drive the fire truck

The whole class plus the 3 firefighters who gave the tour

After school Nathan was treated to McDonald's for
great performance in class this first quarter(top of the class)

The Pumpkin Patch

Here are some pictures from our trip to the pumpkin patch this year.

Nathan and Ryan
Caitlin posed for me

Owen's first time at the pumpkin patch


We had to check out the animals

Quite a haul of pumpkins

I love to make a spooky dinner. We had eyes in our salad and brains
and mummy fingers with bone breadsticks and for dessert intestines that were quite delicious.

Choir Concert

Teresa had her first choir concert at FHS. She was very excited about it. They did a wonderful job and looked so nice.

I'm going to attempt to post a video of her favorite song they sang. It was beautiful and worth the effort it takes to post a video here.

Even better

Nathan lost his 4th tooth today, one week from the last one. He looks pretty stinkin' cute!

Yes, that's his tongue sticking out of his gap
