Now that we have kids, it seems like holidays that used to last 1 day - if that - now last at least a week! Halloween was no different this year.
First the pumpkin picking. We tried to go to this pumpkin farm by us but after driving all the way out there the line was like 45 minutes long just for a ticket so we left and went to the local church we have visited the past few years - and we were the only people there!
Sawyer was pretty set on getting a purple pumpkin, and did her best to convince me to buy a giant one...
But in the end settled for this one.
And a few others - one for school and some for all of her friends to come over and paint. The nice man that was working there offered to help up take our haul out, but Miss Independent took care of it herself.
So we had the girls over for pancakes and pumpkin painting one day.
Ty pretty much slept through all of this. Then we had to carve the big pumpkin. My mom came over and helped us. Unfortunately for Sawyer, my mom and I are suuuuuper unartistic and she wanted a Hello Kitty. Nothing a googled stencil couldn't help!
She was super into pulling out the "seeds and slime" and loved eating the roasted seeds. The next night, my dad was back in town so we went over there to carve pumpkins and things got serious.
This time she wanted a bat.
Tuesday, Ty had costume day at Mother's Day Out.
Thursday, Sawyer had costume day at school. I dressed Ty up again just because...
Thursday was also Barry's birthday so we had a nice dinner out and a neon blue cake with blue icing, fish shaped sprinkles and rainbow candles. Sawyer picked that because it is her dad's favorite.
We had planned to go to San Antonio on Saturday for Caroline's baptism, but last minute decided to take off Friday morning so we could trick or treat there. Sawyer was so obsessed with the Belle dress, she basically wore it for 3 days straight.
Once we arrived, we had such a fun night trick or treating with Ariel, a sweet little flower and lots of cousins!
