So I changed the eyes on my spider and made a white pom pom and turned it into a ghost.
What do you think?
The kids can't dress up today, but I still wanted them to have the Halloween spirit. So I saw a cute onesie dyed like candycorn. So I decided to do the same with some t-shirts for the kids. Now they can still go to school, but not be too much of a distraction. Well except Rayle is super duper hyper today.
On Friday the boys had a half day so I decided that would be the perfect time to carve some pumpkins. I picked some up at the market and when they got home we got to work. It was perfect because Ashlyn was still napping and we could work without interruptions. The boys gate to touch slimy stuff so cleaning out the pumpkins was not a highlight for them. Both put on gloves to help with the job, silly boys! Then the designing began. Rayle has an obsession with Two-Face from Batman. So we did that. Teagan was undecided, but eventually came up with a dragon. The boys picked a princess for Ashlyn, and after carving two pumpkins, I was done so it was kind of lame. It was fun to spend some time with just the boys. Can't wait to see what they imagine next year!
Notice the gloves!
My phone totally auto corrected Trunken to Drunken, HELLO how often have I used that word phone???? Like never until today. Anywho, last night was our wards trunk or treat. What is a trunk or treat? You line up in a parking lot with your vehicles and pass out globs of candy to the same kids as these make the rounds twenty times. ;) Ashlyn just helped herself to our loot and overflowed her bucket. I think there might be a candy addiction in the making with that girl. So we were the Ghostbusters, and it was a lot of fun. Everyone keeps asking me if I made them all, either our costumes look like crap because I handmade them, or people think I have mad skill, um let's go with the mad skill option! There was a pumpkin contest and Rayle got an award for the silliest pumpkin, and Teagan got an award for most detailed pumpkin. Mom gets a reward for allowing her sons to be as creative as they want, and I end up craving the pumpkins! Also a couple in the ward took family pictures so that was cool. Can't wait for them to send it to us in e-mail. Brian decided about an hour before it was time to go to church to make the Ghostbuster emblem for the sides of our vehicle. Teagan is still amazed at his fathers mad skill. It's funny because both Brian and I have shown our children some of our artwork, but I guess because we,are parents, we don't qualify for having any other abilities. Silly kids! All in all we enjoyed our night.
Okay yes let's address Mr. Rayle, he wanted to go as something other than a ghostbuster, so we met in the middle and painted his face and hair like Two-Face and he wore the ghosrbuster costume as well.

Ashlyn is so full of energy. She loves to get into just about everything. She loves all of her brothers toys, but also has interest in baby dolls and purses. She LOVES shoes and I can't blame her, I do too! When I wear make up she wants to wear it too. I think she is defiantly a daddy girl though and she prefers Brian over me. She also has down pat the GLARE! At dinner she will do it and we will do it back, then she will start laughing. She is so much fun.
