Halloween Adventure

Pumpkin guts!!
Whats inside a pumpkin?

 Halloween was a hit!  We started it off with craving the pumpkins.  It was McKinley's and Gabriella's first experience with a pumpkin.  McKinley loved pulling out the pumpkin guts and he couldn't stop smiling from ear to ear.  Gabriella was pretty amused herself.  She loved the pumpkin guts as well and even put some in her mouth to taste.  (Yucky!)
Val craved his pumpkin in what McKinley called a "scary pumpkin" and mine was a "happy pumpkin."  I made sure we saved some pumpkin seeds and roasted them for a tasty treat afterwards.  

Its so big!  Orange is my new favourite colour!
Yay for pumpkin carving!
These two had so much fun carving together.  It really turned out to be a fun family activity.

Happy Pumpkin

McKinley was so excited to be Spider man!  We even got him a Spider man trick or treat bucket.  He had so much fun gathering treats.  When he started to catch on what was going on, he started running to each door with his hands outstretched, waiting for that piece of candy!  It was a hoot watching him.   Gabriella was a quiet observer but she had a lot of fun.  She was adorable as a bumble bee!
I'm a pretty bumble bee
Trick or Treat!
Lets start trick or treating Mom!
We can't wait until next year to go door to door and get more candy!  And Gabriella will be able to go door to door herself next year.
