Clowning Around!

Here are the only two pictures we took at the church Halloween Party. I've learned from the past to take them right when we get there because the chance of taking one during or after the party is impossible! Still, Allison wouldn't look at the camera because she was too excited about the party, and Zachary was distracted by Ryan's wig!
FYI...the clown costumes came about because Allison and Zachary are at the age that Nora and I were when mom made these costumes for us. I will take pictures of the kids sitting on the porch just like we did 20 plus years ago! Stay tuned.

The Winning Pumpkin

Our neighbor grew a gigantic pumpkin this year and decided to enter it into a contest up north. She ended up winning first place which was $8200.00 (not a misprint!) She was so excited to have won that she had a Halloween party with neighbors and friends. There was a ton of food, Ryan made balloon animals for the kids, and it was a great start to Halloween!

The winning pumpkin!
Ryan doing what he does best!
The kids loved all the Halloween decorations. This witch moved when you got close to it and it scared them at first. After a while they wouldn't leave it alone.
They climbed in bed with Ryan and ended up falling asleep after such a fun party!
They normally don't sleep with us, so I thought it was cute that they fell asleep so fast.

Riley's Apple Farm

Now that my camera is back from its vacation to Texas I am able to post some pictures. I was a little disappointed that I didn't have as many pictures on there as I thought. When Emily was down for that week I think there were so many cameras going that mine took a back seat. I know mom's camera has a ton on hers, now we just need to teach her how to post!
