Okay, check out these cuties! This year, Ira and Enoch were firefighters. They love wearing the firefighter dress up at the children's museum so hopefully this is a costume that gives us some future play time too! They were SO cute! I'm thinking of taking photos of Ira in his firefighter costume every month and making a calendar. If Enoch enjoyed his more, I'd do that for him too, but he's picky about his clothing and taking these photos required a bribe.

Maeve was Alice in Wonderland and Holly was the White Rabbit. Holly loves to craft up portions of her costumes. It's great!

Greta, sadly, went trick or treating with her friends. She was "Thing 2" and we missed her. Hopefully I'll get to snap some pics of her but now she's in volleyball season.

Oh Halloween. Weirdest holiday ever. What do we do with all the candy???

Happy Halloween!

This year we have a Bat, a Pumpkin, a Witch, a Vampire and the Queen of Hearts!

I'd say all in all, Halloween costumes came together well! Maeve wanted to be a witch - so easy. Ira wore Maeve's baby bat hat (Baby Maeve!!), and I made cardboard wings. We met Enoch where he is right now knowing that he probably wouldn't be interested in a costume and I bought pumpkin pajamas and a pumpkin hat (the hat he wore briefly and only for these photos). I found Greta and Holly's dresses at a thrift store. Holly created all the embellishments to her costume - so awesome!

Sugar rush, here we come!

Halloweens past....

I did a couple of my favorite Halloween crafts with Maeve. I always love to see what expressions my little ones draw for their pumpkins. This combo reminds me of when I took Maeve to the dentist last week to have her 4 bottom teeth pulled. She had an adult tooth coming in behind them and the little ones were not wiggly. Maeve was so excited and nervous, she told me, "my feelings are all mixed up."

The handprint spider with a yarn web is another favorite of mine. And Maeve's kindergarten teacher provided the pumpkin craft for the children to do at home and then take to school. I really enjoyed saving up orange items and then gluing it all together with Maeve. Creating with my kids is something I like a lot!

Here are some photos of carving pumpkins. Grandpa Tim came over to carve with us - he helped Maeve and together, they carved a pumpkin true to Maeve's original design. Enoch was into pumpkin carving, he thought removing the top was hilarious. And now he can quite confidently say, "pumpkin." I love the look of pumpkins cascading down the steps on our porch. This house is a good one!

We went to Grandma and Grandpa's to pick pumpkins! How awesome is that? Grandpa grew a bunch of pumpkins and while the goats got some of them, there were still so many. Each of the kiddos picked at least one pumpkin to bring home and now our porch is looking very festive.

We're leaning into the baby Thor look for Ira (half pony tail) and everyone is really enjoying seeing more of his face. I know one day I'm gonna have to cut his hair, but not today!
