It has been a busy weekend! Saturday was our annual family & friend picnic at Letchworth State Park. This tradition goes back as long as I can remember and it is always a day to look forward to!
It was a chilly day, but we made the most of it bundled up, snuggling by the fire, and of course playing in the leaves!
We hunted for prizes in the leaves (thanks Auntie Robin!)
The kids pretended to be squirrels and searched for nuts (peanuts of course!)
There even was a silly game called “Don’t drop grandpa’s eyeball!”
Allie got a little rest on walk with daddy.
Finally the kids got to make their own clay pot jack-o-lanterns.
Aren’t my nieces the cutest?
The next the whole crew was back together again in church!
Later in the day it was time for trick or treating! Don’t worry, they spent several hours in between not in their costumes:)
Here are Pooh (Cara), the Honey Pot (Allie), Tigger (Eli), and Eeyore (Brady).
Little Miss Honey Pot was quite the independent girl throughout the evening. She kept yelling, “I do it myfelf!” She wanted to go up the stairs by herself, down the stairs, and certainly wanted to put the candy in her bucket HER-FELF!
The kids LOVED being out and about for Halloween! We walked up to my mom’s and had dinner. We stayed there for a bit and watched the trick or treaters coming to the door.
Then it was time to go and get some candy!
It was just SO much fun going around town just the 6 of us. The kids had a ball seeing all of the other costumes walking past. They even were intrigued by some of the spooky sights. After each house we stopped at, Brady would say, “Okay, we need to go to another house! I still have an empty space in my bucket!” They would march up to the houses singing the Little Einstein's “We are here to Trick or Treat!” song. Allie fell flat on her face a few times, but with all that padding she was fine. Matt and I couldn’t help but laugh as she just laid there on the ground and instead of trying to get up, she would just attempt to gather all of the candy that had fallen out of her bucket.
Our night ended with a candy party on the floor of their bedroom. The 6 of us sat there and ate candy together. What awesome memories:)
