{Halloween With The Fab 5!}

Well we didn't have time to carve our pumpkins this year.. I know!! Can you hear the utter disappointment in my voice? ( I dislike carving greatly, oh the mess) So we went with a "Mr. Pumpkin Head" theme this year. The kids loved it and to top it off we were done in 5 minutes with no mess & we think they look pretty fabulous!!
Then @ 6:00 we went to our Church and attended our annual Trunk or Treat! The kids had fun & I didn't have to make dinner because they served hot dogs & hot cider (thank you very much). The kids played tons of games & scored all kinds of Halloween trinkets and goodies, then we headed outside where they literally were stuffing their bags with candy.
Yeah, I know what you're thinking....... Good times!
And here we are Trick Or Treating our friends Brent & Maria's house! Sorry had to post one with Brinley wearing her cat mask! 
Phew 1 holiday down 2 to go....
All in all it was a pretty good night, granted I was sporting a nice headache and I was stressed to the max (try 2 day's o' stress). We had Addison's B-day party the next day so I have yet another Addison post coming. I know, I know I promise it will be the last for a while, but I promise the pictures turned out pretty cool so of course I have to share.
Okay I'm going to drag my sorry, exhausted, stressed out body to bed. Good grief I just noticed it's only 11:40 someone just call me Grandma and get it over with. I mean I usually stay up till 2 am sheesh, see what stress will do to ya. Night all!

  5. Halloween is just exhausting anyway and with 5 kids and a birthday I can't imagine! The pumpkin heads are adorable. I may store that idea in the back of my brain for next year. The kids look great and I bet your glad it's over. Hopefully you can sit back and relax a little today.

  6. I love your posts on your family and their activities! I tend to post about mine alot too so maybe this is why I like them, LOL!! I love the pumpkin heads too, have never seen those but they beat carving a pumpkin! My kids are out of that stage so we don't do it anymore. I think trunk or treating is the best thing ever invented!! Wish it were around when my kids were little!! Cindy

  10. LOVE the mr potato head idea. Holy cow those are soooo cute! You're tired b/c of the time change my dear. Try peppermint oil for that headache. Just rub it across your temples and forehead and voila, gone! Your kids are so cute as usual. And quit apologizing for posting things! That's what i come for! Silly goose.

  16. I guess because I don't have any little kids in my life I'm behind the times. I didn't know there was such a thing as Mr. Pumpkin heads...but what a brilliant idea...and so much cuter that just carving the dang things! Love the costumes...and you need a nice long nap!

  17. As you know, I read your blog everyday and enjoy every minute of it. You have such wonderful craft idea's and they are usually very simple.
    Looks like you guys had a lot of fun for Halloween. As asked above, where did you get those cute pumpkin pieces? Wishful thinking that I can get any up in Canada, but I thought I would ask anyways.
    Thanks
    Krista
