I had been anticipating Halloween night for the entire month of October. I could not wait to go trick or treating with Jack-Jack! And the evening did not disappoint. We just went up and down our little street, which was perfect. And this kid loved it. I loved it! Ivy was a little trooper in the stroller and we had such a nice night together as a family. Here are pictures of our little Jack-o-Lantern and our sweet little Flower.

Sunday evening after church we carved pumpkins. I was the official scraper of the pumpkin guts since Jack refused to get his hands yucky. Daniel carved his "sad" pumpkin and Ivy's "smirking" pumpkin. I carved my "scared" pumpking and Jack's "pirate" pumpkin - at his request. It was the most pleasant evening and Ivy loved just being a part of the group.
Some may dismiss Halloween as a silly holiday that celebrates nothing but candy but I love the excuse to plan fun family activities and create lasting memories for my kids. We enjoyed a fun filled Halloween weekend as a familythat started Saturday night with some Ghoulish Jello Jiggler making and a family bonfire in the back yard after dinner.
