What a busy weekend! Friday our local grocery stores Lin's was having a Halloween Carnival in the parking lot. The kids had a lot of fun and a great way to start the Halloween weekend. Although it was a little warmer than I would have'd liked it. I can't believe how big my kids are getting. This year all the kids picked out their own costumes, which to my surprise Kayla decided not to be any Disney princess...WHAT! She loves all the Disney Princesses. I think school has changed her a little, just a little. Definitely in a good way. Well, here they are at the Lin's Carnival.

I love that other kids want to help pass out makes me happy.

After Lin's we had a couple of hours before the next one. Luckily for me I got them to take a nap...well Austin didn't but I did. They woke up just in time for the next round which was at the Old Gym in Overton. They were celebrating 70 years and having a fun low-budget carnival. I wasn't to impress just because I had to pay for every game, which was 50 cents x3 and since I have small kids, of course they didn't win anything but a small piece of candy like a tootsie roll or smarties. So needless to say we didn't stay long, but it was OK we went home and carved our pumpkins.

This year Kayla wanted to do her own pumpkin. Here she is cleaning out the inside.

The finished look: Kayla's is the rose, Austin's the big happy face and Ashley's the goofy face.

Saturday morning we went to the Valley of Fire. It was a lot of fun. Austin really liked the bowling.

I'm surprised that Austin let the man put that mask on him.

Enjoying the cookies they got to decorate. The cookies were a little too cooked because Tanya, my mother-in-law, chipped her tooth on one and she just had it fixed a few weeks ago.

And then last but not least, the trunk or treat at the fairgrounds. Waiting to go in.

Kayla was so excited to see her kindergarten teacher Mrs. William's

Kayla relieved to be home

It was a busy weekend but it was filled with fun. The kids had so much fun and more than enough candy.
