Countdown to Halloween (A week of activities)

We are so pumped for Halloween in this house and I thought it would be extra fun to do some Halloween/Fall special activities this week to get ready for Saturday.  The girls and I have stayed extra busy by visiting going to a Halloween party, checking out a pumpkin patch, painting pumpkins, and doing Halloween arts and crafts.  Are you ready for Halloween?  We are!

 Sunday afternoon we went to a Halloween party.
The kids decorated Halloween cookies, played Halloween Bingo, and Halloween bowling.
It was an awesome day and the kids had so much fun!

 You know Elizabeth must have purple frosting

 And sprinkles...

 Monday, we went to Nalls to check out their pumpkins, play in the maze, and we discovered a bunch of chickens and a pig named Penny.  :)

 She's a quick one

 Trying to get Elizabeth to take a picture

 Penny the pig

 One of the many chickens

The girls were not thrilled with the "Nalls family photo corner" 

 Tuesday, Elizabeth and I made a Halloween cookie house that my mom sent her

 She loved it!

 She is very focused :)

 And Caroline wore the Halloween outfit that my mom sent

 Ruffle butt!

 Wednesday we went to library preschool in style...
Halloween style

 My mom also sent these hairbows

Trying to smile for the camera...

 On Thursday, we got these cute pictures of my niece and a sweet Halloween card.

 This morning, Caroline put on another Halloween onsie and a hairbow from my mom

 While Caroline napped, Elizabeth and I painted the pumpkins we picked up at Nalls

 Elizabeth used 6 or 7 colors

 And I painted mine teal for the Teal Pumpkin Project

 I think she is having fun :)

 I wanted to participate in the Teal Pumpkin Project this year because I have several friends whose kids (Elizabeth's friends) have food allergies.  Having a food allergy is challenging and difficult every other day of the year, and Halloween should be a fun time.  We wanted to be inclusive of all kids in our neighborhood that will be trick-or-treating so Elizabeth and I went to the store to pick up some non-food goodies.  I hope that tomorrow (or next year) you feel compelled to pick up some non-candy options so that all kids may be included in trick-or-treating.

 For lunch today, I took the girls to IHOP and they each got a Scary Face Pancake
Elizabeth had a blast eating the oreos with her pancakes.

Caroline wasn't sure what was going on, but she loved her pancake with whipcream.

Happy Friday y'all!
