Halloween Costumes

The other day when I was posting blogs, I completely spaced that I needed to actually post the pictures of the kids in their Halloween costumes. Philip had the camera that night, and it wasn't until later that I realized we didn't really get any great pics of the kids. Sorry. Maybe next year.

Carving Pumpkins

This year I splurged and bought a "pumpkin carving kit". Holy Cow, those little saws make it soo much easier to carve pumpkins!!! I highly recommend spending the $3 and buying a kit.

Pumpkin Patch Substitute

This year, we had coupons to tour a farm for half price. We did that instead of our usual Sutters Ridge tradition.

The kids got to milk a cow, hold a baby chick, bottle feed a baby goat, feed grown up goats as much dried corn as they wanted, go for a tractor ride, and pick out a pumpkin.

It was fun, but kinda expensive, even with our coupons for 1/2 off.
