Halloween 2009

This year Bradlee was a fairy/butterfly (if you ask her, she was a butterfly), and Brock was a monkey. It was really the first year that we took them trick or treating to houses. Usually we just do the trunk or treat at church. Anyways, it was a very successful day!


Who wouldn't wanna give this handsome fellow some candy?!


In case you were wondering if Bradlee was at all attractive...here's a close up.


Papa helped me get them ready and took them out trick or treating around our neighborhood. They were a little shy about it at first, but it only took them about two houses to get all warmed up!



Later we went to Sears to surprise Daddy and pick him up from work. Then we went up to see Grandma and Grandpa McLachlan and the rest of the family. We them trick or treating to a few houses up there as well.


Inspecting their earnings.





Pumpkin Pickin'

On the Saturday before Halloween the kids and I went with Wendy, Lisa, Megan and Cory out to Black Island Farms to get our pumpkins and have some fun! First, we went on a hayride (sans hay) to the pumpkin patch.
As you can see, we only had a couple of pumpkins to choose from.


Then we went down the awesome slides. I love the Bradlee is brave enough to do it all by herself.








They had this little train type ride thing that Bradlee loved. It was perhaps one of the cutest things I have ever seen.





When we got back we painted our pumpkins. Bradlee loved doing this. She just talked and talked and talked. We had some good laughs.


Thanks, Wendy, for taking us all out there! I know the kids had a blast. Bradlee also jumped in a huge pumpkin moon bounce deal and went through a "kiddie korn maze".
