October Fun

I love the fall. I love the cooler weather and the beginning of a string of fun Holidays. We started the month decorating for Halloween. Grandma Jett sent us a cool door decoration and the kids and I carved pumpkins. It is a ton of work for me since they can't carve too much right now. But it's still fun to pick out the patterns we want and scoop out the pumpkin "guts"!
We also went with a friend to downtown Woodstock where they had a little Fall Festival. There was music and activities. I had a Caricature (SP?) done of the kids and they got their faces painted. They also had a dance party, played with sidewalk chalk and won prizes in a bowling game. It was a fun night that was also free so everybody was happy!!

Emma painted as a cat with the purse she won!

Mariah won the purple necklace she is wearing - cute!
