1 week and 2 days after my mom passed away - Halloween was upon us. For the sake of the kids we tried to make it a fun holiday. The night before, we joined with family to carve pumpkins.
I love this picture of Sarah with her little tongue sticking out in concentration and effort.
Some assistance from Papa.
Max was an attentive audience for Cate and her carving skills.
The finished pumpkins:
This one belonged to Micaela and Miles.
Isaac's creation. This is a creature he created in a story he is in the middle of writing titled Elentatia. It is called a "keiraung."

The Halloween Costumes:
Tommy Timmons from the movie Sandlot
Our Cute Cowgirl
Our little bumblebee. If this looks familiar, that is because this is the third year in a row she has been a bumblebee. She had talked about being a princess but then changed her mind back to the bumblebee. I though it was a great (and easy!) idea. The sad thing is - that the costume still fits her!

The Kindergarten Halloween Parade
When we went back for the school-wide Halloween parade, we ran into another bumblebee! So cute!
