Halloween 2009

Our Halloween fun started a couple of weeks ago with this pumpkin painting party. Such fun. And then remember my to do list from last week - with the to -do task of finishing up some halloween costumes. Our Nana LeeAnne is a wonderful seamstress and she makes the kids Halloween costumes every year. They are WONDERFUL!!!! Ken and I needed to finish up the details though -- so we spent part of 3 days last week working on M's crown and scepter. We also had to find B the large lollipop he is eating in this picture (through the plastic). I think it all turned out great!!!!

Check out these adorable costumes up close!!!! Just in case you couldn't tell -- we had a Wizard of Oz theme going on at our house.....

A as Dorothy

M as Glinda the Good Witch

L as the Lullaby League

B as the Lollipop Guild

On Wednesday night we had our church's annual Trunk -or-Treat. I joined the theme and dressed up for the occasion myself......wanna guess who I was?!!? I will give you a hint -- it involved face paint....=) We had a great time at trunk-or-treat and it was a great outreach event. We have over 300 folks pass through our doors to enjoy a hotdog supper, 6 inflatables, games and trunk-or-treating with tons of candy.

Then on Saturday it was raining here all morning. And by raining, I mean pelting rain with wind and leaves falling all over the place. I was thinking our trick-or-treating was going to have to be canceled. BUT -right at 2:00 when we were to head out -- it stopped raining! YEAY!!!!

We went trick-or-treating in the downtown area of our town with some friends and we had a great time. Here are some pics of the event!

M's friend Cody was a cowboy. SO cute!
And this is our friend C, also a cowboy.
Isn't he adorable
One of the shops downtown is a bakery.
They had cookies for the kids to decorate and eat.
This is L "sharing" her cookie with her Daddy.
I say it that way because she broke off a tiny bite and gave it to him.

One of the shops went all out with the decor....

Our friend W was an ostrich!
Her costume was SO cute --
it even had plumes coming out of the tail.

We had such a great time on Saturday. Thanks, Stacy, for inviting us to go downtown with you all!

Ya'll have a great Monday. I'm off to pack away the Halloween decorations!!!

I will be back in a little while to announce the winner of The Swiss Courier.
