Pumpkin Carving

Thursday morning the kids had the preschool Halloween Party. Jayden pretty much took his costume off right away and didn't play a single game. Maliyah and Kyson had fun though! Emma was a cute little lady bug and didn't want me out of her sight. The night before Maliyah had helped me make some hair accessories for a friend and I had to get some pictures of them! I had to get feathers for the International Fair and saw a friend use them in a baby hair clip so we did the same. LOVED it.

Maliyah was spiderwoman and got to be the person mummified in a game. Kyson got to as well.

Nanna LOVES her baby Emma and she also lately LOVES having her picture taken (when it's not formal). As soon as she sees me taking pictures of Emma she always jumps in the shot!

Kyson found this pirate costume in our dressups and chose it for the preschool party. He wore it all day!

Friday night was our Ward Halloween Party and Chili Cookoff. I heard it was a huge success! But we were an hour late so I couldn't tell ya. No, actually we got there during the greatest thriller performance ever by our babysitter Jade and two others, and there was the biggest halloween costume crowd ever! It was fun to see all the kid AND adult costumes. The kids had a costume parade, they had the chili contest and dessert and costume contest and then trunk-or-treat. The kids loved it all

This picture is a Lady in the ward named Juanita. She is a hoot. I love chatting with her and she is just so sweet. She loves holding Emma and Emma hates being held by anybody out of her family. But Juanita won't give up and is determined that one day Emma will love being held by her!

We carved our pumpkins kinda late this year. We also did things a little differently. We carved just two pumpkins then let each of the kids pick potato head type toy things to make faces. They have pointy backs on each piece to push into the pumpkin. Lol, okay that sounded dumb and I don't even have a picture to show you...but we will! Tomorrow. Anyway, each kid got to pick a face that we put on two sides of two more pumpkins.
