Pumpkin Patch with hay rack ride and kids train ride
Boo at the Zoo
Costume Parade at the school
Treats for the Halloween parties at school
Another pumpkin patch with an 8 acre corn maze
Carve the pumpkins (next Sunday my Dad and SO are in charge of this)
They will go trick or treating at an assited living facility that my SO's mom is the activity director of. The residents love seeing the kids and the kids get more candy than they know what to do with.
On another note we went and got halloween costume yesterday. Not one of them picked out what they said they wanted to be. I ended up with 2 puppies, a gorilla, Inkie (the blue pacman ghost) and a Diva Devil. At least they are happy. First year that Colby isn't going as Spiderman.

I love that assisted living facility idea! There is a senior home a few blocks from me where one of my friends is a nurse..I'm going to ask her if any of the residents would be interested in seeing two little witches
Wow you guys are awesome. We have not done a thing. Am I a crappy mom? I'm hoping DD will just re-wear last year's costume, but I guess I better at least get on that before too long. I'm afraid to buy candy yet and have not dug the decorations out of the garage. I guess I'll put those things on my to-do list for the week.
The pumpkin fro yo sounds yummy!

DH ususally does the outside but he just hasn't gotten around to it this year. Maybe tommorrow on his day off. Don't think we are going to do the pumpking patch this year. We might carve pumpkins on Sunday.
Let's see, the house is decorated, the porch is decorated and the front gate is covered with our ginormous spider and his web. I took the kids to the pumpkin patch on Sunday and they've carved their pumpkins. We also roasted the seeds and have been enjoying them all week.
We've watched The Witches and Hocus Pocus and the big kids are reading some of my old Goosebumps books at night. DD2 and I have been reading from the dozen or so Halloween books she selected from the library plus the ones we own.
I have all the costumes and accessories except for a pair of red tights and a tiny "hot dog" costume the kids want the pup to wear. I also have some Halloween perler bead kids for the kids and those sticky gel cut-outs for them to stick on their windows. I think I'll pull those out Saturday morning before we head out for a weekend of events. We have 2 parties this weekend (one with a Haunted House) and a Harvest dinner party at a winery in Napa for DH and I.
On Halloween day, Coco's school has a parade in homemade astronauts costumes and the big kids get to dress up for school. I'm just crossing my fingers that it won't rain...
KC - the Napa dinner sounds amazing! Which winery is hosting? I have friends that work in the wine industry there and we have visited a few times. You'll have so much fun! Do you live in that area? I'm in SoCal and being blown away by the Santa Ana's right now.
Would love to see a pic of Coco! My 4 year old is going to be a sprinkle cookie in her class parade - the teachers are bakers.
We went to the huge pumpkin patch. So fun. Went to the childrens museum little haunted (not so much) house. Halloween party tonight at the Y Tommorow maybe another smaller pumpkin patch however it is soooo cold. We are decorating pumpkins sometime this weekend as well.
I haven't done all I have wanted to for this season but we have had plenty.
