Halloween

November 1, 2011 · filed under: Holidays, Kids by Geoff

This year brought many different activities to entertain both girls! The first, of course, being the annual tradition to select pumpkins and enjoy festivities at the pumpkin patch:

Then we had to bring the pumpkins in, size them up, decide what to carve, and carve them! Grace had a great time picking out the faces we should carve, and also helping clean out the pumpkin guts!

Next came Grace’s favorite part! All of the Trick-or-Treating! First, we started with Night Eyes at the Blank Park Zoo with the Brown family:

Then we attended Reiman Gardens for “Trick-or-Treat at the Gardens” with the Grooters family:

Finally, it was Trick-or-Treat night. Grace had been practicing at all the other events, including at school. So she was a pro, ready to join Raleigh and Jack for fun in our neighborhood.

At the end of a long night of Trick-or-Treating, the girls sit and enjoy by their pumpkins:

While Grace was out Trick-or-Treating, Madelyn was holding down the fort at home. Somebody had to stay home and make sure the kids only took one piece of candy! 🙂

Halloween-3

Though we found these special days to be a bit busy with our two girls, we loved all of the excitement of sharing the fun as a family of four. We look forward to more special days with our girls as the holiday season approaches!
