"Another post? Wow!" Yes ;)
Here are some pictures of our Halloween. We had a good and fun October and Halloween. We carved 2 pumpkins, one for us and then one for a neighborhood party. Yes, we went to a neighborhood party, all 7 of us. That was fun! Jared and I also got to toast some pumpkin seeds, see previous post. Then we all enjoyed going out trick-or-treating in our neighborhood, all 7 of us with Grammy. Fun, fun!
Enjoy the picture overload ;)
Jared and Mom carved the pumpkin this year. Jared scooping out the mushy gushies from the pumpkin.Ewe!

Okay, maybe some picture time by Mama :D Jared in back, in front Anna, Bethany, Brielle, Suzan and Grammy.The 5 kids. It was a bit difficult for Mama to take a picture of all of them,
especially with the girlies walking around and taking off their hair bows. Ha! ;)Awe! Okay, I don't know why Anna and Suzan are crying here. Perhaps they want to go trick-or-treating NOW! and Mama keeps pestering them for more pics :DMore of the kiddosA cute little candy corn Suzan.

Jared, Brielle, Anna, Suzan and BethanyAnd just for kicks, the 5 kids last Halloween, 2008. What a difference a year makes! The girls were just baby blobs last year!!!!We had fun trick-or-treating. All 5 kids did AWESOME! Yes, lots of comments and looks from our neighbors. Actually, a lot of them said "we were just waiting to see if you all would come out trick-or-treating! You're here. Yay!" Our neighborhood is full of very sweet and kind people. We are very lucky! A lot of our neighbors also wanted to give the girlies candy. Well, we used Jared's pumpkin as a "community" trick-or-treat bag. Needless to say, it was very heavy for him to hold and carry at the end of the evening. Ha! ;) He had fun and, as usual, the girlies had fun just getting out of the house. All 5 kids have already enjoyed a taste of their candy loot...a few for Jared and then some mini M&Ms for the girls. Man, did those girls like their M&Ms! They chowed down on them like nothing! :D
Our weather was PERFECT for trick-or-treating too...not too hot or cold. Just right. Yay! With our nicer weather the girlies and I are going to get out more...for walks, for park playtime or just for walking and playing in our yard. We've got to enjoy our AZ fall/winter/spring weather before May comes ;) And as I said, the girls get so excited and begin to squeal and giggle if you quietly mention "go out," "outside" or "shoes" to them. Ha! Too cute and funny!
Hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween! Enjoy fall, y'all :D
