Halloween 2011

Well, this blog is serving as my families journal so as much as I would like to just start where we are at I would hate to loose those memories we made over the Fall. Fall in our neck of the woods is FABULOUS. We loved all the Fall Festivals and pumpkin patches. They were all free to cheap and really made our fall!!

This festival had a huge hay pyramid with a slide down it. Lee climbed with the kids to the top. They had such a great time sliding down and getting hay all over EVERYTHING!
Little Tessi just liked to be outside. She was pretty happy watching the kids :)
The other thing we loved along with picking apples, pears, blueberries, walnuts, pumpkins, etc. was pressing our own cider. This farm here gave us the pre-picked apples for free, let us use their old press and then we could take the cider in our own bottles. Why is it that anything free tastes so much better to me? We have squirreled away the cider in our deep freeze and pull it out for truly special occasions :)
I have really focused this year on getting healthy. After a diabetes scare and a pretty bad pregnancy I decided enough was enough. I love this picture because it reminds me how great I am feeling. I RAN with Keaton through that maze. I couldn't have ran 10 feet the year before!
Savannah wanted to be Cinderella for Halloween. I cut up the tablecloths from Lee and I's wedding and made her a dress and cape. For Halloween I let her wear my wedding tiara (what else am I going to do with it?!?!?). She was so thrilled. Tessa was an Elephant (which all 3 were for their first Halloween).
This is an even better picture of Annie's costume and cape. Please note her sparkly shoes!
Keaton was a pirate. He looked pretty cute. I made a lot of his costume too. I even dressed up as a witch this year. I think it is the first time I bothered in 10 years or so. It was kinda fun. I think I will do it again next year! We moved the day after Halloween so I am glad we filled up October before we had to get to WORK!
