Happy Halloween!!!

Tonight was Halloween so we got the boys dressed up for some Trick or Treating. Here is Jack the elephant.

Trick or treating!

Owen wondering what we are doing to him!

Oh, I guess its funny!

Back at home Owen was raiding our own candy bucket. The neighbor keeps a tally of kids and she said last year she had 350 kids! We have the perfect neighborhood for it!

Harvest Hoedown

Today was the Harvest Hoedown party at Jacks preschool. Moms and Dads were welcome to come join the festivities so I went to check it out and get some pictures of Jack in school. The kids were supposed to dress like farmers for their fall party. Here is Jack with our pumpkins before school.

Again with some Halloween decorations.

Here are the kids playing with Play-doh when they first got to school. Jack is peeking at the bottom!

Here is the class at the gym learning about some fun activities they were about to try. Jack is about 5 kids from the left.

Watching Mrs. Antoon demonstrate pumpkin rolling.

The kids raking the leaves in the gym. Jack is right in the center.

It looks like Jack is hurting Evan here because he has his mean face on but they
were actually just playing!

Reading a scary story at circle time. Jack is on the left.

Tanner and Jack hammering golf tees into pumpkins.

Jack's class got to go to a sing along with three other classes. Even Mommy had to get up and hold puppets for this one! Jack is the third child starting from the little blond girl right in front.

One of Jacks classmates had a little too much fun earlier in the day and fell asleep on Mrs. Antoon's lap during the sing along.

Sing along fun. Jack is towards the left.

People always ask if Jack is small in his class so here is a good shot to show it.

More singing along. Jack is still to the left.

Walking back to class for snack to finish a fun day at preschool!

Autumn Leaves

Yesterday was a beautiful fall day so we took the boys out to rake and play in a pile of leaves. You can tell by the pictures that they enjoyed the time outside!

Classic Jack.

Pumpkin Time

Yesterday we headed to the pumpkin patch/apple orchard with Aunt Sarah, Uncle Paul, Grandma and Grandpa to pick out our pumpkins to carve. Jack struck his usual pose in the cutout.
Again with Aunt Sarah.
The boys also tried out the big chair.
Jack relaxed in the wagon with the pumpkins even though Mommy wanted to ride in there (ahhh, appendectomy recovery!)
He looked like he wanted to fall asleep.
Owen fed some goats.
Aunt Sarah watched Owen look like he was thinking very hard.
We went back to Grandma and Grandpa's to carve our pumpkins.
Jack did a good job scooping out the guts.

Later Aunt Becky joined us as we celebrated Grandpa's Birthday!

The boys even helped blow out all those candles.

Then Jack showed us his love for chocolate cake.


I have more pictures from Grandma and Grandpa's camera of yesterday as well as the Halloween party the boys attended last week. I will post those once I remember to bring their camera over to my house!
