fall happenings...

i know...
i'm a bit late, but, what are you gonna do?
here's a rundown of all of our fall & halloween happenings...

we hosted our 6th annual haywood hayride...

and for the first time in about 3 years, we actually got around to carving the pumpkins we picked on our hayride.
this is not one of our pumpkins. it's my cousin's. pumpkin "pi". love it!

a couple shots of our decor. we had a lot of halloween decor out, but this is the only one i took a pic of.
i'm bad about snapping those random, around-the-house-every-day pictures. i need to get better. especially since it's so easy with my phone.
and i know this is not halloween, but it was put up in october. i am absolutely, head-over-heels, madly in love with christmas! can't wait for it! we are never home for thanksgiving. so my poor little house doesn't even know it exists. it just thinks christmas trees naturally follow pumpkins.

we took the girls to foy's...a local strip of halloween stores. costumes, grim reaper on stilts, haunted ambulances, free candy...what more could they ask for?

and of course, trick-or-treating. the girls almost always pick the same or very similar costumes. ashlyn was a spider bride and jaden was a spider witch.

we live in a tiny 8 houses. and we have the only kids. so our first stop, before heading to my aunt's neighborhood, is the next door neighbor's house. they buy candy just for the girls and love seeing them every year.

then, we hit my aunt's neighborhood. this is the crew that went out to score candy. (that's my aunt in the toy story alien costume) the 2 big kids took the rest of the kiddos around while we hung out in my aunt's driveway with all her neighbors and passed out candy. loved it.

oh, did i mention i'm a candy sorter? and...all this and only one bag of peanut m&m's?!? wth!?
