Halloween Night

Halloween night was a blast...usually we try to fit in too much, but this Halloween we just went trick-or-treating!
We had a Hippie Flower Power Girl!

Velma from Scooby Doo!

A Ninja!

I can't believe I didn't get a picture of Audrey alone, but she was a ballerina!

Here are all the cousins at Emily's house...
We are so excited to have a little cousin!

Pumpkin Carving Party!!

The week before Halloween we went to a pumpkin carving party at a friends house. They have this party every year. This below is a picture of the winners of the three categories ... kids, stenciled, and free hand. I think it's safe to say that our family took this competition by storm!!!Sydney is cleaning out her pumpkin. Her and Charlie were actually gagging!!
Charlie won first place and the girls were runners up. (They happened to be the only kids at the party). When they announced their names I said, "Katie and Sydney you won!!!" When we got home that night as I was carrying Sydney upstairs to bed she looked at me with a funny face and said, "I don't know how I won." I asked her what she meant and she said, "my pumpkin was not good." We walked a few more steps and she said, "I mean, it really wasn't good!" Our family laughed about that for a couple of days.

This is Katie's pumpkin. Pretty good for letting her design and cut, huh?

Charlie did not enjoy cleaning out his pumpkin....again, he was gagging the whole time.

Katie really didn't mind the yucky stuff, she just a great actress!
