I love Halloween. Thankfully there is a lot to do around here and it was not 100 degrees. We went out to Sweet Berry Farms for the pumpkin festival. It's no Half Moon Bay but it definitely beats some of the other places we've tried to go for fall fun. Lou insisted on wearing his pajama top and Batman boots.
He only wanted me to take pictures of his butt.
We met up with BVZ's cousin and his kids. Norah painted a pumpkin.
And rode a pony!
Louis ran through a corn maze.
And ate pumpkin ice cream (that's a vegetable, right?)
We took a hayride.
We went to a friend's party and Norah again dressed as the candy corn witch. Please notice the kid kitchen broom she's carrying around. Louis insisted on going as a ghost. He is wearing pajamas with his blanket over his head.
Our friends recently bought an acre of land that they turned into their very own pumpkin festival, complete with kid sized bulldozer.
Super dad hauled kids around in a "hay ride" (i.e., riding lawn mower with a trailer).
Reid had to be Buzz Lightyear because he got in trouble and all his super hero costumes were in time out.
Camilla was not impressed.
That same weekend Norah and I worked yet another festival for Daisy scouts.
She made out with some awesome faceprint.
Norah's school does not let the kids dress up for "Halloween," instead they have a theme and the kids can dress according to the theme. Last year was a character from a book. This year was "Blast from the Past." For whatever reason, Norah decided she wanted to be Cleopatra. In piecing her costume together from stuff around the house we decided to get a black wig. One trip to Party City and we left with this bad boy (but no wig).
Lou picked out a skeleton. I do not remember why he is making this face. He actually loved the costume.
I made mini cupcakes for his class party.
He changed into Batman mid-way through.
Norah was the queen of the universe in her get-up. She loved it and would wear it every day if she could. I even practiced using eyeliner on her. It might be the first time I ever used eyeliner.
Louis was "boy with a pumpkin shirt and funny hat" on the actual day of.
Reid and Camilla came over for trick or treating. Our block has a great big party and people walk around with adult beverages, which may be why my photo taking stops at oh, about 7:45.
Another successful Halloween in the bag.
