I forgot to post previously that we celebrated the October Birthdays with just the Websters at Sunday Dinner. My, how these kids keep getting bigger!
McKenna's school sponsored a fun Halloween carnival!
It's a fundraiser for the school and it's a HUGE event. This being our first year attending, we bought wristbands for all the inside games, and plenty of tickets for the outside activities as well. Now that we know more about it, I think we can cut back and definitely not spend as much next year. The kids of course loved the inflatable slide!
McKenna also got a "make-over" and got some "Elsa white" put in her hair.
They also had this inflatable obstacle course outside.
Some of the inside games were: keep the balloon up, face painting, push the pumpkin with the broom, painting nails, a cake walk, a movie, plenty of bean bag/ball tosses, pumpkin bowling, walking on a spider web, and many more. Dan opted to take Ben and Anna home a little early (largely due to meltdowns and tantrums) so McKenna and I stayed a little longer, then went and got a milkshake afterwards!
Halloween day, we attended Dan's work Halloween party. They set up their little bounce house, had a potluck lunch, and there was some trick or treating to everyone's desks.
A group shot of everyone who dressed up! (any idea what Dan dressed up as?)
Kids only (with Anna screaming) :)
After the work party, we headed home to finally carve our pumpkins! Ben did not touch the goop, but McKenna didn't mind too much.
Dan used a stencil/pattern to carve this Frankenstein with Ben. Turned out pretty sweet!
McKenna drew her own face and called her "Alice." She's even wearing a headband. :)
We continued with our tradition of mummy hot dogs for dinner. Trick or treating began as I went down the hill first with the kids (Dan stayed home with Anna to pass out candy) and we lasted about an hour. Ben started to get pretty tired walking back up the hill to get home. Then we switched and Dan took the kids up to the rest of the neighborhod. We kept a tally of how many kids we got (my mom used to do this growing up) and we got about 37. Not a ton, but I think the number has gone up a little every year.
Love my Ninja Turtle, Princess Elsa, and little bunny!
The weather was, once again, much warmer that normal which was wonderful!
