My sweet little goblins! Griffin is Troy (from “High School Musical”), Nathan is Curious George (appropriate) and Meghan is Hermione (from “Harry Potter” – one of my more ultra-conservative friends looked horrified when I told her what Meghan was dressing up as. Whatever.)
Such fun! When they got home, they took over the candy-passing-out duties!
Events leading up to Halloween:
(I know…I’m way behind, but it’s been a crazy week. Again.)
We ventured out with MOPS to a local pumpkin patch…which was quite an adventure. It was pretty crowded, but thankfully the place has wagons to borrow, so I could at least keep sight of Nathan – most of the time, anyway. Ugh. Chasing three kids keeps me skinny! But we found a great pumpkin to take home and got some cute pictures.
Carving a pumpkin with the Dad-a-roo
I was gone on a scrapbooking retreat all weekend, and Michael took over kid duty…and what a dad he is!! They did the whole pumpkin thing and had a blast.
Check this out…have you ever seen anything like it? Some of the pumpkin seeds had sprouted.
Speaking of which, remember my go-plant-pumpkin-seeds story? GUESS WHAT IS GROWING IN OUR FLOWER BEDS?!?!
