Halloween Happiness

Halloween is always super-busy but ALWAYS super-fun as well.  This year we were able to celebrate lots.  Our good friends April & Tommy invited a group of us out to their farm for a fun Halloween party and campfire.  We just couldn't resist.

Our little ladybug was on-the-go during the whole party.  It sure made for a lot of work for Mommy just trying to keep up with her and keep her from falling down the deck stairs.  Oh well, it was worth it for such a cutie!
Jonas spent most of his time on this motorcycle (or trying to get back on it).  He was a huge fan.  Just look at that smile!

This year, I decided we would do a "practice-run" in preparation for the real trick-or-treat night.  After all, when you have such young little kiddos you REALLY have to amp up the excitement of wearing their costume.  Or else, they will reject you when the big night comes.  Even if candy is used as bribery.  It wasn't long after we started our test-run that a lady drove by in a panic asking if that was the night of Trick-or-Treat.  Nope!  Just practicing our skills maam!

Costume-clad kids and they are raring to go!
Prepping the pumpkins for a fun night of carving!
Addison gets braver every year.  She was anxious to get started.
Jonas got a little help from Daddy this year.  
Reaching in for the gooey guts.  He didn't mind!
Grandpa Bell was able to join us for a quick visit and was lucky enough to enjoy our pumpkin carving as well.
Addison had no fear either!  Much better from when she was a little baby and wouldn't touch that stuff to save her life.
Jonas took a little time out to give us his biggest cheesy grin!
