I cannot tell you how excited I am to see November! It's time to get ready for my two favorite holidays - Thanksgiving and Christmas!!! I am going spend a good part of this afternoon putting away all of my Halloween decorations, eating all the boys' chocolate and planning the crafts and decorations we'll make for Thanksgiving. I'm super excited to share some of them with you guys very soon!!!
Before we get knee deep into turkey, pumpkin pie, and stuffing why don't we wrap up October activities by showing you a glimpse of our Halloween!
(Forgive lack of quality AND quantity of pics, I was too busy getting messy!)
We started out by carving pumpkins.
This was the first time they boys actually carved them - usually they would just tell me what they wanted and I would do all the dirty work.
This is pretty much how they all felt about the pumpkin guts - EWWWW!
And this is how my oldest wanted to illustrate the point. lol
This was also the first year that I gave NO input on their costumes. I let them decide what they wanted to be and come up with how to pull it off. It was actually kind of nice to not shell out $50+ for a costume they'll really only wear once. A mask and hoodie was a much better deal, even if I'm not crazy about it being too scary for their ages.
