We had a crazy couple of weeks prior to Halloween, so I was grateful we were able to still get around to sugar cookies and pumpkin carving. :) Here are some pics of the kids decorating cookies...Gavin didn't actually decorate. He just ate treats. I was NOT in the mood for a disaster/mess, I don't think he minded.
Nina & Papa gave Carter a Mr. Potato Head set that goes on a pumpkin...cute huh!
Gavin LOVED this. In fact, he was quite a hog of the big spoon we were using to scoop out all the pumpkin guts.
This year, the kids decided to go as Star Wars characters...
Carter was Darth Vader.
Jemma was Princess Leah. She said that her character needed a gun, and I wasn't gonna buy one, so she rummaged through the toys in the backyard and found a water gun...I thought that was very creative and a good sign of problem solving skills. :) (There's the home schooling mom.)
And Gavin was Yoda. He HATED his hat...shocker. There is candy drool all over his costume in EVERY picture cuz we were trying to bribe/distract him to keep it on.
I have to give most of the credit on this hat to my mom...without her, I never EVER would have figured out what the tutorial was saying...so THANK YOU MOM for helping me make this little hat a reality. :)
I'm only in this picture cuz I was trying to keep Gavin from ripping his hat off. We, unfortunately never did get a decent shot of just the three of them. :(
Jemma pumpkin bowling.
Since we live so close to so much family, we bagged trick-or-treating in our neighborhood and just drove around to ALL the family.
Nona & Papa's house.
Pop & Gram's.
Granddad & Grandma's.
I am just now realizing that I didn't get a picture of the kids with Nina & Papa at their house! What that!?!
Here's Gavin in their kitchen...
Jemma, Carter & Trey in the toy closet...maybe that's why it didn't happen...the kids be lined it in there before I snapped a shot. (Gotta place blame somewhere.) ;)
All four cousins!
