Trick Or Treat 2014

We did trick or treating a little different this year.  It was cold.  Olivia was too big to bundle up and hide in the stroller.  But too small to not be all sorts of bundled and out walking.  So we decided to just trick or treat our street, then head to a local church hosting a harvest festival, and finally trick or treat my parents house.

Trick or treating!  Preston is a pro!  Olivia is learning the ropes.

Then off to the harvest festival!  There were games, a maze, and a jump house!  The kids had a lot of fun!  We even ran into some friends.


Finally we were off to Grandpa and Grandma's house!

The kids headed up to the door to trick or treat and surprised Auntie Jessie that it was them!

Olivia showed off her costume.

While Preston gave away handfuls of my parents candy to trick or treaters.  Literally handfuls.  Both hands.  I had to let him know that he could do a little less.  You know so there was candy leftover for the other trick treaters.

We stayed and hung out for a little while before heading home.  Sugared up and exhausted from all the fun!

Preston's First Grade Halloween Party

One of my favorite parts of Halloween now that Preston is in school is that his entire school does a costume parade!

I dressed Olivia up in her cat costume and we headed down to watch our favorite first grader dressed up as Snake Eyes!

There he is! 

Even the principal got in on the fun!

When the parade ended Olivia and I made our way to Preston's classroom for his Halloween party!

They played some candy sight word bingo.

While Snake Eyes was busy playing bingo my little kitty was entertaining herself by eating all the fishies!

My favorite party game, and Preston's too I think, was the donuts on a string.  His teacher had tied a string to the ceiling and then a bunch of donuts to other strings.  She would attach the donuts and then the kids each took a turn trying to get a bite of the donut...without using their hands!  It was hilarious!

He did it!

I took a turn on the donut game and it was hard!  Some of the kids made it look way easier than it was!

Olivia found the blocks!

Making some Halloween bracelets.

Olivia got to have a cookie snack with the big kids!

Preston and Addi! 

We had a lot of fun at Preston's Halloween party!
