The day started with a preschool party...then went to a big costume parade at the outlets, which after the parade we went trick or treating at the outlets. I was kind of sad that the Chocolate Factory had closed, they always gave out the best things, last year is was a chocolate covered banana's with nuts and carmel...hmmmm..mmm. But they still got allot of candy. Then we were going to go to are churchs trunk or treat, but my kids were feeling good. But we did finish it up with trick or treating around our nieghborhood.

Happy Birthday Karlie

Karlie had a great Big Birthday Party. We had our annual Costume Party Theme.
The kids played pass the pumpkin, find the eye ball, they did the cha-cha-cha, and the best part was decorating cookies. They loved that.
I can't believe she is five years old.

My animals

Here in New Jersey, they celebrat the whole month of Halloween.
The grocery stores have the kids come trick or treating there, with crafts, and cake/ice cream. This is what they wore to our grocery. It was so fun. The Library also throws a big halloween bash, but we were to tired to go. We also have two trunk or treats, one with our church and one in the community. We were all trick or treated out by the time the end of the month came. And still even more parties. I'll post those pics later

Howell Living Farm

We had the opportunity to go to the Howell living Farm, it's a farm that run as if it were the early 1900's.
It was a fun for my kids, but the best part was that they got to dig up potatoes for the local food bank. They loved doing service.

Pirate/Dragon Hunting in the backyard.

Just playing in the backyard.

I love how kids are so imaginative, but pushing them in boxes down a hill, sure did a number on my back. But they sure did have a blast so it was worth it.

Water Park Fun!!

J.R. helped out at a camp this year so he was given some water park tickets for thanks. We had such a blast, the best part to was the water was heated, so it was always warm. Nathan and Karlie loved it, they even went down the big slides that I was a little nervous to go on. Karlie meant an boy and Nathan meant a girl and spilt from each other. I was a little weirded out( they're to young :() and a little oh that's so cute. Karlie even held hands with the boy and went down water slides with him. Nathan did the same thing, but mostly him and the girl played on tire swing together, and Nathan would push them. Gavin even had fun playing in the water.
We are going to have to save up and go again next year.

My kind of Camping

This year we wasn't able to go camping. But we still wanted to roast those Hot Dogs and Smores at least once this year. So we just drove about 10mins to Round Valley and had ourselves roast, but without the sleeping over. Yeah!

Our Homemade Salsa
J.R. and I worked together to make this garden fresh salsa.
