Halloween

Wow has the month of October just flown by. We've had so many different events it's nice to look forward to a somewhat quiet November.

On Friday night we carved our pumpkins. We invited over Grandpa & Grandma, and Aunt April. It turned out to be fun night. While they finished carving pumpkins I started cutting out the sugar cookies. We decorated the cookies on Saturday.



I used the nighttime setting on the camera so we could show that the pumpkins were glowing. The pumpkins stayed nice and still but as you can see the kids were not able to stay still. Bonnie is behind her pumpkin, Chas is behind his pumpkin, and I carved the white pumpkin.

For Halloween I decided the kids needed to be cowboys! They had the red hats I just needed to add a few pieces of clothing and they'd be ready to go. I sewed up a vest for Chas and added his badge. Chas was the deputy! Then with Bonnies outfit, I had started with this one first, I kind of had to adjust as I made it. In the end I really liked the way it turned out. I also sewed up a skirt for Bonnie to wear because she is a girl and cowgirls need skirts. Bonnie's badge read Sheriff. So we had a Sheriff and a Deputy. They also had guns that they wore in the holsters.



We also tried to get a shot with Charlotte in her carseat with the kids.

Hope everyone else had a great Halloween.

The costumes turned out so cute! I slacked off this year and actually bought Arthur and Orson's costumes. Cedric used a hand me down that both Arthur and Orson used and Helen's we thrifted.

Sounds like a great time. I kept waiting for you to come by and see me. I had lots of candy for the kids.

The costumes turned out so cute Sally. I love them! My three girls were cowgirls too, but I can't find my camera right now. I need to find it so I can make them dress back up and I can get a picture! Love Bonnie's boots, where did you get therm?

The boots were Ellen's. They are way too big for Bonnie but she loves to wear them, so I figured maybe Chas had a chance at keeping up with her. In the end he didn't have a prayer because he kept getting mad that he'd get candy and it went into the bag and not into his mouth. It was a riot.

The costumes are wonderful. I love Bonnie's poise on the front porch. Both Bonnie and Chas have attitude. The pumpkins are great.
