Fall & Halloween Fun!

I really enjoy the fall season and all the fun things there are to do with the kids, not to mention all the baking I do with pumpkin incorporated, yum!

I thought I would just show some fun pictures of our October fun... Kai's Kinder field-trip, the pumpkin patch, pumpkin carving, and Halloween. October was such a fun month and I love doing all these fun things with my girls. 

Our family dressed up on Halloween for the kids party at their school. Kai was a witch, Tyler a Leopard, Austin made me a skeleton shirt, with the skeleton of the baby even, and Austin was, well what he is in every day life, and Medical Professional. The girls like it when we dress up, and they we so happy that even the baby had a Halloween costume.

This is Kai's Kindergarten class at the pumpkin patch. This pic is hilarious because just out of the blue, while pictures were being taken, Kai jumped up and went front and center for the pictures. Look at her Teachers's reaction to it even, so funny, she is so darn cute!

It's our tradition to go to the pumpkin path every year to do fun activities and pick our our pumpkins to carve. As always, we had a great time on a hay ride, at the petting farm, jumping into piles of hay, playing on the playground, and so much more!

Carving pumpkins is also a fun tradition on our house. Kai loves to clean and feel the guts! The girls were actually able to do their pumpkins almost by themselves this year, Austin helped a little, but for the most part they had their carving tools and did it mostly on their own.

Cute carved pumpkins! Tyler's is the bat on the far left, then mine os the witch, Austin made out last name Lewis (and helped the girls),  and Kai did the Cat.

These were some fun games at the Elementary School Halloween Bash. They had games, a scavenger hunt, crafts, trick-or-treating, and haunted house, and food, it was a lot of fun!

The kids got so much candy! They were excellent trick-or-treaters (well trained by their Mommy), then immediately came home and dumped it out to sort and exchange.

What a fun October we had, with memories that we will never forget and ongoing traditions. We are so blessed to have each other and be able to spend these fun holiday's together! I love my girls so much and I am so glad to be able to participate in these events with them!

Tyler's Birthday

This post is so past due, but I didn't want to forget about it, so better late than never, I guess...

Tyler had a fun 8th birthday party at our house with her friends and family. I can't believe she is 8, just growing up too fast! Tyler is such a wonderful little girl and we just love her to pieces. She is kind, smart, responsible, loving and just so fun to have around.

For her party, Tyler wanted a pink zebra theme, so I got work work on a fun cake, and I thought it tuned out so cute, and she loved it. We had a fun sand craft activity for the kids, and a make your own pizza buffet with breadsticks. The weather was beautiful, so the kids played outside a lot and everyone had a great time.

Happy Birthday to our amazing little 8 year old, we love our Tyler!!
