Halloween Festivities

A few weeks ago, Ryan and I took Nathan to the farm to get pumpkins.

We saw bunnies.

and ducks,

and flowers.

And of course, lots of pumpkins. Nathan wanted to pick up all the “balls” and if he had been able to, I’m sure he would have thrown them.

We also bought some yummy little apples and some fresh apple cider.

Our pumpkins before we painted them.

Once we showed Nathan what to do, he was very serious about his artwork.

Ryan was pretty serious too (even though we ran out of brushes so he had to paint his whole pumpkin with his finger).

Our finished creations. Mine was supposed to be a golden snitch but it never got farther than being a pumpkin painted gold.

On the 29th we went to our ward Halloween Party.

Can you tell who we are?

In case you can’t tell, we dressed up as . . .

and Pigwidgeon, the Owl

He even had a little message to deliver.

Did I mention he was a screech owl?!

Nathan met up with his friend Lily at the party.

They are only a few days apart and spent some time hugging and kissing each other.

Actually, Nathan was mostly on the receiving end, but I don’t think he minded too much.

He spent the rest of the evening running laps in the gym while Ryan and I halfheartedly chased him.

After about an hour of watching him run and hearing him yell things like, “I go! I go!”, “Race!”, “I’m gonna get you!”, and “RunRunRun!” we decided it would be best to opt out of the trunk or treat part of the evening.

Still, the evening was a success and we got our fill of Halloween!

So cute--good costumes! Did you make Nathan's?

I love your costumes! It's going to be one of those things Nathan looks back at and says, "What did they do to me?!" He looked so cute! I think Hannah's a little bothered that he was kissing Lily. Tell him that. And I love your long grey coat.
