Happy Pumpkin Day 2012

Payton's school had a "Fall Festibull" (as she would say) today.
They had fun games, a photo booth, face painting and a haunted house.

She had a blast and I really love her school.  It was such a great event they put on.
She wanted her face painted just like one of her friends.

The face painting lady did this in under 2 minutes.  I was impressed!
Me and my girl!

Rylan got to celebrate his First Halloween this year.
He got to wear the same pumpkin costume that Dylan and Payton both wore for their First Halloweens!
Ready to go Trick-or-Treating.

My Robber (Candy Robber that is).

My Karate Girl.

Pumpkin Boy was laughing so hard.

Dylan with his friends.

It was a bit chilly.  Okay, it was cold.

They got tons of loot!

Ry Guy was a trooper.  He got lots of oohs and aahs.

Hope you had a great Pumpkin Day!
Let the sugar coma begin!!!

Pumpkin Carving Party

We were invited to a Pumpkin Carving Party tonight.
Chris stayed home to rest, but the kids and I went.
We had a blast.
P-Girls all ready to paint her pumpkin.
The girls getting their painting "capes" on.
It's crazy how big he is getting.
It trips me out when I look over and see him just sitting all by himself.
Dylan planning his plan of action.
And here he goes!
He was making a ninja pumpkin.
Kelly, Laura and Laura's 11 day-old baby, Noah.
Yeah, this will be used as blackmail someday.  =)
Dinner time.
We left just as they were starting the pumpkin carving.
Hopefully we can carve ours with daddy tomorrow night!
Thanks Sampsell family for a wonderful evening!

The Great Pumpkin Festival

Today we served with our church at The Great Pumpkin Festival in Downtown Canton.
Payton sported her new flannel and boots from Sasha.

Here are pictures of the beautiful trees on our way.  These are un-cropped and unedited.
Of course they don't do it justice.  Seeing it in person is much more amazing.

Ean, "Here to Serve!"

Our church gave out free hot chocolate,

and had a cake/candy walk.

We (Chris, the kids and I) served first by working the bounce house.

Payton helping start it up!

Then Payton and I went in the church and helped out with the kids.

My bud, Sawyer.

Me and Ry Guy!

Clean up time.

Payton made a new friend.

We had a great day serving!
