Halloween 2007

Halloween is always a blast with kids! We had school functions, church functions, and then of course the real deal! They had plenty of practice before performing for the neighbors. Everyone decided on one costume except Paris. She found our costume bin and wanted to be raggedy ann, a witch, and The Little Mermaid, so of course she had to be all 3! We had enough functions to be all! When my kids saw Paris as Raggedy Ann they all said look it's "Jo-Jo"! (for those of you without little kids, Jo-Jo is a little circus clown on the disney channel) I'm getting so old. I had to explain who Raggedy Ann was! Madison stayed home with mom this year and passed out candy while dad took the kids out. Everytime someone knocked or rang our bell, she would make this excited sound and point to the door! When we opened the door, she was always surprised at who was staring back!

Pre-School Field Trip to the Pumpkin Patch!

Paris' class got to go to a pumpkin patch for a field trip and Madison got to tag along too! Unfortunately, it was in the upper 90's during this trip so we stuck to the animals and then flocked to the shade! This was our first year without even carving a pumpkin! I have to say these new fake pumpkins are awesome! No mess!

It's a Party!

Our annual Halloween party was a success! We had so much fun! I was lucky enough to have my sister Shavonne in town to help out with all the little details! It's always tons of work, but so worth it! We decided not to do a murder mystery party this year and opted for a costume party! As you can see everyone participated and we gave away some sweet prizes for the winners! Bet ya can't wait to see what happens next year!
