Happy Halloween!

Claire really wanted to be Snow White for Halloween, and I really wanted the kids to match. Claire said, "How about Luke is the seven dwarfs?" So we decided to choose the dwarf who Luke is most like: Sleepy. That boy loves his sleep.

Claire all ready to go!

Luke was more than ready to go trick or treating for his first time!

Trick or treatin

Claire and Luke went trick or treating a total of 6 times this year. I captured a few of those occasions:

At a preschool party

At the rest home with Pirate Corgan and Skeleton Dylan

And at Nate's work

I love this time of year!

Pumpkin Patch!

Claire had a preschool field trip to the pumpkin patch. It was freezing. Literally freezing.

Claire was the Line Leader for the day. Her words, "Being the line leader is great."

We started off listening to some Halloween stories from the owner.

Then they were off to choose their pumpkin! Claire wanted a "baby pumpkin." I think she found it.

We ran around the corn maze.

And took a ride with the Carter-man in the pumpkin cart.

Group shot. Claire said, "I think these kids are nice."

Scary Hill

We ventured up to Cherry Scary Hill this year. It took two tries (this first time it was a blizzard), but it was actually a lot of fun.

We did a little mini-golf...

Got lost in the ball pit...

Took a nap and then woke up happy...

And conquered the rock wall.

We'll be putting this on our list to fall activities to do next year. :)

Fall Family Photos

Another edition of "set the timer up and run around!" I'm actually very happy with how some of these turned out. I love these three.

Green beans

Luke's first time eating green beans.

His reaction was priceless.

Not a huge fan.

How can you not love Gardner Village?

It's a family tradition to go to Gardner Village every fall and look at the witches. How can you not love it?

Claire liked sitting on the hay, but kept calling it "scratchy".

Luke being his usual happy self.

"How old are you?"

I love these two. Claire is always asking to hold him.

She actually requested a picture of "just the beautiful girls."

Then she asked to have one of "just the handsome boys."

Once Claire was SURE that the witch wasn't real, she would sit by it.

Nate actually set up and took this shot! I may finally be rubbing off on him! :)

Claire showing the witches her dance moves (which actually resemble karate moves a lot closer).

Self-time shot of the night!
