A Carving Night...

Our family had so much fun carving pumpkins this year. Aubrey had no problem digging in and getting dirty. She loved to try and eat the pumpkin to. After we finally gave her a spoon she would stick it down in the pumpkin and then into her mouth. Once we got her pumpkin all carved out we put her in it and took her pictures. We had done the same thing with both of the boys are their first Halloween. The boys enjoyed helping Dad carve their pumpkins

Preschool Bash

Lukas had such a great time at his preschool Halloween party this year. He has set back and watched his older brother and now it was finally his turn. I was only able to put part of his costume on him so he was dressed as a half rocker half preschooler. =) For his treat to hand out to classmates was some kid suschi that I made. It was a HIT! I was the only parent who joined in on dressing up, but had fun anyway. Kind of crazy to dress up as a Resses Peanut Butter Cups, considering Lukas is allergic to peanuts.

Potato Head Fun...

My boys and I bought these Potato Head kits a couple of years ago and they always get excited to use them. We now need to find another one for Aubrey. These pumpkins always last much longer than the ones we carve. So here are a few pictures of our Mr. Potato Pumpkins.

Picking The Perfect Pumpkin

So I know I'm WAY BEHIND on my blogging lately, but I wanted to get these pictures us anyways. We took our kids to Grandpa's Farm this year so they could pick out a pumpkin. We had a fun time and the weather was nice. Aubrey loved all the pumpkins and how they felt. The boys of course had the hardest time picking which pumpkin they wanted and sticking to it. What a fun day!

OK,I have to give myself a pat on the back! I stayed out of my kids candy! Both of my boys ended up with a large Ziploc back full of candy. I did have one weakness though, Grandma's caramel corn. UGH. She makes my husband and me a bag every year and let me tell you it's way to hard to stay away from it. Thanks Grandma Shirley. My mouth is already watering waiting for that bag next year. Anyways I didn't loose a lot this week just a little over a pound, but I didn't gain any and it was Halloween. During this next week our challenge is to get 8 hours of sleep a night. We will see.
