Halloween All Day!

What a busy fun day we had. It started out kind of boring actually. I did some cleaning and did a load of laundry. Ryan kept asking me when we were going to do "Halloween." After dinner when it gets dark. "Are we going to the pumpkin patch?" After lunch. It was a rough morning but I got smart. I had the kids busy themselves by drawing various Halloween pictures. It worked.

Finally the glorious hour arrived! We had all our things gathered and headed over to Grandma's. She was coming with us. We went to Peltzer Farms. It was really way out in wine country. I love my GPS!!!
What's a farm without a John Deere?
Wonder how much it weighs?
It was very bright..can you tell?
A cool ghost.
A train ride with Big Sis.
A pony ride. Ryan bowed out of this one.
She's never ridden or had a lesson. Looks like she belongs!
Onto pumpkin dissection...err...carving
Way to go Kristin!
Ryan chose to spectate.

A kitty--make up by cousin Nicole. Kristin went to her first Halloween/trick or treat party. It was strange without her.

You have to have a super hero
And a scary witch. It's okay...she's my mom. Without meaning to, she scared Ryan a bit.

We spent about 80 minutes trick or treating. The kids got quite a haul. Kristin spent about 2 hours trick or treating and got twice as much as her brother and sister with a full size candy bar thank you very much! All in all it was a lot of fun. I was very tired and sore, but it was well worth it.

What great pictures. Love the girls costumes!
It looks like the pumpkin patch you went to had a lot more to do then the one we went to.

What a nice little farm! We totally missed going to a farm this year, the weather wasn't nice on any of the days we wanted to go.

Cute costumes!

What a great way to spend the day part of Halloween. Mine was spent saying, "No, it's not time yet" about a million times and then when it was time the trick-or-treating got old in about thirty minutes. But hey, we did it.
