Here's our weekend in pictures...
Look what we found! GO PENN STATE! I asked Chris if he could just build one of these in our house?
FYI--We still do NOT know where our bee infestation is coming from. Poor Kara has been stung THREE times in the past two weeks. Thank God she is not allergic like her mama!
After paying for our perfectly picked pumpkins*, some yummy apple cider and a box of homemade sticky buns (Chris added them to the cart at the last minute), we headed home for movie night with Ryan. We watched Monsters vs. Aliens. We give it two thumbs up!
*not so perfect...see below.
This Halloween I wanted to carve a pumpkin. Believe it or not, we have not carved a pumpkin since Ryan was born. I think we just thought Ryan was too young to understand or even help...so why bother, right? Well, this year I decided we must carve a pumpkin.
I found the perfect template online...
Ryan was ready to help while sporting this super silly t-shirt that Grandma High sent to him!
Chris had a cheering section...
Thus causing this to happen...
The cheering stopped and the gagging started. Yuck!
But we weren't going to let a semi-rotted pumpkin stop us!
Do you see Mickey?
carving the finishing touches...
And may I present...
The High Family 2009 Halloween Pumpkin!
Once the pumpkin was completed, it was time to take pictures of the kids in their costumes.
Kara the Ladybug
Does this costume look familiar?? Yep, it's the same one she wore last year!!! Click here to see our 2008 Halloween pictures.
Ryan the Bee
Once there was a break in the rain (yep, it rained AGAIN...what a rainy October!), I strapped Kara into the stroller and took the kids around the block. They got A LOT of candy for only doing a block.
This year Candi brought over Kianah and Ava (two out of her four girls) to keep us company and Trick-or-Treat. Ava and Kara were born only three weeks apart but as you can see, differ greatly in height and weight. Watch out Ava, Kara is starting to catch up though. :)
