Halloween Overload!!!

We had so much fun this October! There are so many fun things to do during the fall, and we loved every minute of it! Since I'm doing a condensed post, I just chose a couple pictures from each event..

The Pumpkin Patch

This has been the third year we've gone to a local nursery where they have hayrides to the pumpkin patch and the kids are able to pick out their own pumpkins.

Here's the kiddos waiting in line. Luckily, Kylee came! She is so great with the kids and they love spending time with her.

This is the typical greeting between Noah and Jace. Jace absolutely ADORES Noah, and Noah is so sweet to put up with Jace's excessive doting.

Jace & Brooklyn standing in front of the tractor. They absolutely LOVED the tractor ride!

Jace with his prize pumpkin. I was happy that he chose one he could carry himself!!

My beautiful Brooklyn. Both of these pictures were cute enough to post.

LOVE this girl!!! We've been enjoying spending some quality "Mommy and Brooklyn" time while Jace has preschool lately. She makes a GREAT shopping partner!!

Black Island Farm

Jace had a field trip to Black Island Farms a few weeks ago, and I thought it would be fun to bring Tara and Noah along!

This picture is after they went on a hayride and learned all about pumpkins, corn, onions, carrots etc. Again, they got to pick out their own pumpkin to bring home! Noah was not thrilled about the picture, Jace is trying to make him feel better, and Brooklyn is keeping her distance!

Brooklyn playing in the "corn box". This has become a classic Brooklyn face. It's like Zoolander's Blue Steel!!

Noah LOVED playing in the corn!!

The kids also enjoyed going down the slides, feeding the llamas, watching the pig races, and jumping in the bouncy house. This is the abbreviated version!

Jace's Halloween Party

Jace had a pre-school Halloween party. Jace and Brooklyn got all dressed up, and enjoyed playing games, trick-or-treating, bobbing for donuts, etc. Jace was always so concerned about his Sis. He made sure she had a turn doing everything, and that she wasn't left out. They can be so cute sometimes!

Jace and Brooklyn. Jace decided to be a pirate, like last year, and Brooklyn decided to be a butterfly (actually, she wanted to wear her puppy costume from last year, but the pants were total floods, so she was convinced to be a butterfly!) I LOVE that they love each other (most of the time).

They had the cutest Halloween program! I was such a proud Momma!! I don't know how to upload the video, but it's the cutest thing ever! I was so proud of Jace for singing and doing the actions. It was far better than the primary program a few weeks ago when he just sat there the whole time!!!


For Halloween we went to Tooele for Kylee's birthday. Kylee was a sweetheart and invited the kids to her birthday party at Build-a-Bear. They were in heaven! Unfortunately, I took all of the pictures with Marc's camera, and haven't gotten copies yet...

This is Jace sneaking a peak at the treats they were passing out. He elected to be spider man, and was very impressed with his muscles!

Here's Brooklyn's classic face again. I didn't get any cute pictures of her in her Halloween outfit. She was a fairy princess!

The birthday girl!!! I can't believe she's NINE!!

And little Noah spent most of the night walking around with something hanging out of his mouth!

Last, but definitely not least, here are Jace and Brooklyn trying on princess clothes. I think it's sweet Jace plays dress up once in awhile! Just as long as he doesn't go roaming the neighborhood dressed as Sleeping Beauty!

We had such a great time celebrating Halloween! This time of year is so much fun. It's just one holiday after the other! We're excited for the festivities of the next few months!
