Halloween 2009

Let the festivities begin...

Wednesday night dressed up for the Trunk or Treat:Carving Jack o'Lanterns:The kids loved pulling out the guts! Better them than me! The kids each designed their own pumpkins (Dylan had help from his own designer aka: Jesse) and Danny did the cutting. The finished product:Notice how Grace's has eyelashes. Jesse went for the traditional look. Jesse helped Dylan by drawing different shapes and letting him pick which ones he wanted. I just love it when they get along...I have to cherish it...it doesn't happen often enough!

We had our friends the Hatches and the Tates over for trick or treating and fun. The Motley crew!Halloween down...Bring on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years!

Random side note:
I was out doing some shopping Saturday morning and came home to find Jesse pulling James around in a laundry basket while Danny was in the shower. He had a jump rope tied around the basket and he kept walking around and when I asked him why, he said that if he stopped James would wake up and cry...it was so cute.What a good brother! And what a sweet baby!

I have to send Grace props for her eyelashes...LOVE them! It's something Izzie would do...
and birth order...it's a special big bro who would think of that and have the patience to keep pulling him around:) Way to go, Jesse!

Awesome costumes - I can't believe Jesse's face paint! Wow. I love their little Jack-o-Lanterns - and your kids are braver than mine as far as pulling out the guts go. Grace's eyelashes are too funny!

That story of Jesse pulling James around in the laundry basket is about the cutest thing I've ever heard, though! What a good older brother. I can't belive James was staying asleep in there!
