Happy Halloweens n Things

I couldn't narrow down the Halloween photos. This year was the first year we actually trick or treated our own neighborhood!  And Rhettsy was by far the most brave.  He figured out the deal really quick and not even a barking dog was going to keep him from the chocolate! 

After we hit the neighbors, we went on to the trunk or treat at the church.  I have to say, it's an easy way for the kids to score a ton of  candy, which they love.  But I hate how quick it goes and also how many strangers there are there.  I just liked it better when I felt like I knew all the kids.  It's nice that the church is providing a safe place for the community to come on Halloween.  It's just so impersonal now.  I wish we could boycott altogether and make our kids work for their sugar!  Like the old days, with pillowcases as bags, running from house to house so you can get the maximum candy before it's time to go home!   

We were supposed to be the Wizard of Oz but Rhett refused to wear the Tin Man costume (as seen here) which meant I wouldn't bust out my Dorothy and Brandon wouldn't don the scarecrow.  So, here we were.  

We ended the night at my parent's house with pizza and lots of candy watching It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.

How to choose

How could I possibly expect them to choose pumpkins when I can't even choose which photos to include/not include in the blog post about the pumpkin patch.  Anyway, the barrage of pumpkin patch photos continued...

It's the Great Pumpkin

We went to the Schilter Farm for Macrae's Preschool field trip.  Upon arrival the boys started directly into a game of hide and seek.  Seriously.
