The last week of October was very eventful and fun filled.
First was a Halloween Party at gymnastics (here they are with Miss Barb, their instructor)
Hudson, Jackson & Greyson too
Then one late afternoon we met them at the pumpkin patch, here they are trying to figure out how to walk and all hold hands at the same time, LOL
That's how you do it!
A special bond!
Were they excited to see the pumpkins?
Not really, they cared more about the hay . . . .
. . . . . because nothing says little boy like a good old hay fight

Then the boys had their school Halloween party and I was responsible for doing a craft and bringing part of the snacks. It was the first time I've spent much time in their classroom and it was wonderful seeing them interact with their teachers and peers. It totally confirmed my decision to send them to this school, it's just such a special place.

Andrew apparently loves to have Mrs. F read him every book on the shelf every chance he can get. I LOVE that! It was fun to see the boys doing there own thing and then every so often Andrew would say "Be right back, I have to check on my brother Adam". Then he would do just that and then return to whatever activity he was involved in. How sweet is that?
One evening we decided to make Halloween brownies with orange sprinkles and spooky cookie cutters. The boys LOVE to help!
Putting on the sprinkles
While the brownies were in the oven we made a Mrs. Pumpkin Head
They took turns putting the pieces into the holes
Very serious business!
So proud of their team work!
Then we carved our big pumpkin. I think this is the most beautiful pumpkin I'd ever seen. I almost didn't want to carve it.
But what fun would that have been?
Are these two cute or what?
Digging out the yucky stuff
While Daddy carved the pumpkin the boys decorated one of their little ones with stickers and paint
Then the brownies were ready so the boys picked their favorite spooky shape to cut out

Poor Kenny, I picked the most difficult design but I loved the way it turned out and I really think it captured how I felt about all the memories we made this week.
