Halloween 2014

I had the opportunity to help set up Halloween parties for all three kids on Friday.  I am the room mom for Andrew and Molly's classrooms, so I was in charge of organizing their parties.  Ryan's, I just got to help out with.  I had to room hop to all of the parties, so I only got to spend a short time with each of them, but I am glad I got to be there.

When we got home from school, our cousins came to spend the weekend with us! We played the candy pot lid game and ordered pizza.

 Then of course, we got to go trick-or treating together in our new neighborhood, which was AWESOME!  Everyone in our part of the neighborhood sat outside in the driveways and front porches to hand out candy.  We had 100 kids come by before it started to thunderstorm.

Ben and Jen dressed up as a Ghostbuster and a Ghost.

Chad was a very hot Clark Kent.

The kiddos did a great job with their pumpkins this year.  They chose their designs and did them with almost no assistance from us.

Ryan's was Thor's hammer.

Molly painted hers with snowflakes...because "pumpkin insides are soooo yucky, Mommy."

Andrew's Lord of the Rings pumpkin says "One pumpkin to rule them all" in Elvish.

The next morning, the children set up a candy store in Ryan's room and spent several hours sorting and trading candy. I loved doing this with my cousins when I was little.  Watching them brought back so many happy memories.
