Photo madness to come. Fall break turned out to be pretty fun. We did a little family fall festival, which the kids look forward to and mom tries really hard to make it good. I think we succeeded.
Just one of the fun creations the boys made. Somehow the game made sense to them and they were happy together. That is all that mattered.
So, for the fall festival we started out with some simple fall crafts. Here is Peter, showing his off, in his own goofy way. When this kid is happy, he is silly.
We did pin the vine and nose on the pumpkin. They all loved this activity. Although Haley made us move all of her's after she had seen them, they were not in the right place.
Peter used his panda costume for his blindfold.
Caleb got a kick out of trying hard not to put it in the right spot.
We made "gingerbread" haunted houses. Peter is a true minimalist, or at least he likes to be done fast.
Haley always tries to make her's the most fancy.
Then we carved our pumpkins. GOOP!
Caleb did a fabulous job of doing his, 100% on his own. An no one was injured in the process.
They got some little treasures from the festival. The favorites were Halloween slime and the balsa wood flyers. Those things flew great!
Kids doing what kids should do in the fall. Jumping in a huge pile of leaves. Although they did not like taking a shower each night before bed. William realized that he would have to take a shower again on Sunday night and just kept his head out of the leaves. That way, his hair stayed clean.
Our finished pumpkins. And a little witch craft that Haley and I made. Yeah for happy kids and fun times.
