Halloween 2012

Too cool for pictures

I made Jonah and the Whale hold hands to cross the parking lot.

For preschool the boys needed to be Bible characters. I decided on Jonah and the Whale since that is their favorite story in their picture Bible. Thanks to fabric glue and the thrift store it was easy and frugal. Which is good because they stripped them off as soon as they got in the classroom.

For Halloween night they were… wait for it you’re going to be shocked… firefighters! Okay actually if you just know us via the blog you might be shocked but for everyone else you know they are obsessed. We had friends come over to join us in trick or treating and had a lot of fun.

We were trying to get them to squeeze together so we said stand with your shoulders touching.

Ready for action

Trick or Treat!

Waiting patiently (sorta)

Nothing like refreshing swamp juice after trick or treating.

Pumpkins and Butterflies – 2012

Yay I got all three kinda looking at the camera.

Last week we went to the pumpkin patch at the botanical gardens. The weather was much nicer this year (80s, last year it was 100!). We had a lot of fun. Bonus this year they had a firetruck to look at!

Hay maze fun

Rule breakers!

These boys and firetrucks, it is true love.

No smile, but I got all three.

They could have checked it out all day.

Water! Funny story Noah accidentally sat on the pokey plants in the corner and then Abby started calling him Cactus butt.

Learning how to tell boy monarchs from girl monarchs.

Brothers 🙂

Cousins 🙂

Love his excitement

My attempt at getting a picture with them

Halloween 2011

This was the first Halloween that the boys understood what was going on and it was really a lot of fun. We explained trick or treating on Saturday and Ezra was ready to go! When it came to actually doing it they were so shy and quiet. Which really shocked me because they talk to everyone when we go out.

We carved pumpkins on Sunday with my family. Went trick or treating and then went Gamma and Papa’s to show off our costumes, the boys helped hand out candy (I think they liked this the best), and then home to check out our candy.

The last couple of photos are some snacks I made for play school on Friday and some balloons we decorated with on Monday. We really had a lot of fun this year. Here are the glow balloons we used for decoration. The swamp juice recipe and the eyeballs (the fingers are just cheese and almonds, you can use a food safe marker or other decorating gel for the knuckles.)
