Fun with Costumes

What a fun, busy weekend! On Saturday, we went to Border's for a kids Halloween party. I was really impressed. They had storytime, crafts, games and treats for the kids! It was 2 hours of pure fun for my little ones. They even had a kids costume parade. As each child came up, they told the girl what their name was so she could introduce them. Seth went up and said his name was Seth. Then it was Amelia's turn. She said, "That is OBI WAN! and I am Little Red Riding Hood". It was so funny. She was just appalled that the lady called him SETH!
Here are a few pictures of our adventures on Saturday...

Even Little Red Riding Hood picks her nose

My kids have got SWEET moves (like their Dad, the Dancing Machine)

Waiting, kind of patiently, for his turn at Ghost, Ghost, BOO!

After waiting forEVER (for a 4 year old), he got up and gave me this face and said, "I'm tired of this business. I don't like this game".

Sweet Red Riding Hood. All day she kept asking me, "When are we going to Grandmother's House?"

After they were done with the party, we decided to buy a fun Halloween book for them. So, Jeremy read them lots of books...

And I did this...
Last night we went to the Pumpkin Walk. It was a lot of fun...you'll have to take my word for it. I had my camera, but...I forgot the memory card at home. I know! I was SO sad. You should be too. The kids were SO cute looking at all the fun pumpkins.

We came home and had warm glazed donuts (my favorite!) and hot chocolate. It was a lot of fun. Tonight Jeremy and the kids will do their pumpkins. I hope he takes lots of pictures. Libby and I won't be here. I work with the young women in my church, and I will be at an activity with them. I'll do my pumpkin later...maybe. Maybe Jeremy will have to do it this year instead. My hands are usually pretty full.

So...I didn't get all the laundry done this weekend, or the dishes done that I wanted to. I didn't get to mop my floors, or change all the sheets...but....we had fun. That's what it's all about.

Oh, and want to be inspired and read some good news? Go read this, and this, and this!

Have a fabulous Fall day! SMOOCHES!

Hi, I just found your blog through Sara's. Don't know if you remember me. It is fun to see your kids. Cute family. Love Little Red Riding Hood picking her nose. And your son's comment about the game- funny. I love the silly things kids say.

I *love* Seth's pouty face. He has mastered that one.
