Halloween...and the rest of the week!
We celebrated Halloween the Wednesday before at our church trunk-or-treat. Primary (the organization for children 18 months to 11) was in charge of a "carnival style" game of making Halloween Stew (you take a straw and suck up cut out Halloween shapes and run over to a cauldron and drop it in) and it decorating our station. Aunt Sheila came along for the festivities and got roped into helping set up-which she didn't mind at all!
This is pretty much it for the pictures I took that evening because it got dark so early! Recognize the costume? It is Link from the video game Legends of Zelda Hyrule Warriors...but you probably remember it from his Renaissance costume. :)
Jake managed to rack up a lot of candy and of course couldn't wait to see what he got!
Sadie was also very interested in seeing what he got!
The week before we had gotten "Booed!" (someone leaves treats on your doorstep and you are supposed to turn around and "boo" two others) and because of Aaron having a really long week of work (he had to finish 4 houses last week to close and he did it!) we never got to pass it on (even though I had it already-we just wanted to do it as a family but we ran out of time!)! So finally on October 30th we did it!
Even though it was daylight, and Nee already knew we were there, we had her close the door so Jake could still do the ding-dong-ditch part of "booing" because that is what makes it so fun!
We tried to do it to Aunt Sheila but she didn't hear the doorbell! Luckily the gentleman she hired to paint her house heard us other wise we may have been there for a while! Hahahaha!
My favorite part of this time of year is the colors...These were some leaves on Aunt Sheila's steps up to the parking lot. It is like a rainbow on leaves! I love it!
We decided to drive down a different road than usual to see a few more leaves before they are gone...
Jake cooked dinner for us that night. He is a pro at making egg holes.
You know you are a spoiled Southern homeschooler when you do school in your PJ's, in your parents bed...Oh yeah-the Southern part-it was 62 degrees in our house which Jake said, "is freezing!" and had to put on his Winter coat...
That is not that cold.
And now as I am typing this I am realizing this week is almost over...I will never catch up...
