Okay, so here we are over a week later and I am just now getting around to posting Halloween activity pictures. So here it goes!
On Saturday morning the Parrish's came over to help carve pumpkins with the kids. Michal Kate wasn't really into it, but Noah loved it as you can see.
Lezli carved ours to look like Michal Kate's favorite Disney character, JoJo. We added the hat as a cutsie final touch.After the kids went down for a nap the kids and I got ready for the Fall Festival at church. Michal Kate decided that mommy was dressed up as a princess. She was Nemo and Noah was Squirt. The kids had a blast, and as a church we were really able to give something fun and safe for kids to do for Halloween. We had over 100 kids show up which for our church is AWESOME!
Noah got really into the games and getting to throw things at objects. He played "Smack Jack" several times! He thought the best part was getting the candy and prizes for what he viewed as no big deal!
Michal Kate played "Hoop a Pumpkin" several times because it was outside. She loves the outdoors, and this way she was able to keep watch of anyone who might show up. One little boy was dressed as Superman and she followed him around for most of the evening.
Daddy came home from Poland on Monday. He was very tired, but we enjoyed a wonderful night out as a family. The kids were so excited to see him. I was too of course.
Then on Tuesday all Michal Kate talked about all day was going Trick or Treating. So when the time finally came, she was so excited. She had asked if she could sit by her pumpkins outside in her Nemo costume, and I wasn't going to argue.
Our little Squirt loves to dress up so he gladly sat by the pumpkins as well.
For some this is normal, but for us, to have both kids looking at the camera is amazing!!
Walking the streets.
Noah loved it. He did not understand why he could go up to a door, and someone would answer, give him a treat, and then walk away. He thought he should be invited into every house. As we would walk away from each house he would have to stop and pull out whatever had just been placed in his bucket to make sure he liked it. He did it so many times it was very funny. It took about an hour for him to be okay with the way Trick or Treating works. Michal Kate really had the hang of it this year. She was so cute going up to the doors and saying "trick or treating" to everyone.

Then on Wednesday we bought out long awaited mini van. Richard and I are so excited about it, and it was a fun way to continue his homecoming week
