8 days until Halloween......

WOW, can you believe it? We are so close to Halloween. Is everything ready? Are the costumes done and tried on?

We have made our annual trip to the pumpkin patch and got lots of big pumpkins and lots of pie pumpkins as well. We rode the hayride, fought our way through the corn maze and emerged in a pie pumpkin field where we picked our own pumpkin. We were able to pet a calf and a goat in the petting zoo and the kids bounced in the bounce house. Then we climbed to the top of a hay bale pile and took pictures.

The costumes have been purchased but not yet tried on. I must get that done this weekend so I have time to make adjustments if need be. Samuel is going to be a vampire, complete with face paint and spray painted black hair. Addison is going to be a cute little witch and Eli is going to be a green dinosaur. I'm going to be a witch, as usual.

I had many crafts that I wanted to complete BEFORE Halloween but I haven't had a chance to start anything. Maybe this weekend I can take some time just for this and then i'll have some pictures to show you.

More later!

  1. I have my pumpkin, but may get another one. I'll carve the one I have this weekend. I may even dress up this year, even though we don't get trick or treaters here in England.

    Your kids costumes sound fun! I'd love to see a photo of them in their gear.
