We've had a busy week of Halloween activities, and I've been meaning to post them as the week went along, but time got away from me. Here's some of what we've done:

Attended a Halloween-themed birthday party:

The kids wore costumes and ate Funfetti Halloween cupcakes with frosting pumpkins on top.

Went to a Trunk or Treat at Grandma and Grandpa's church:

This Trunk or Treat was held the weekend before Halloween and was a daytime activity. The kids could trick or treat from car to car, and there were a few games to play and snacks to eat, too.

Decorated pumpkins:

The top pumpkin was made with a Mr. Potato Head-type kit. Landon was able to be much more involved with decorating that one than he was with the jack-o-lantern. He named it Ham. As for the carved pumpkin, he told us what shapes to use for the face, but wasn't interested in hands-on involvement, such as scooping out the innards.

Made a pumpkin-shaped pizza for Halloween lunch:

Dressed in costumes:

Landon was a pirate, and since every pirate needs a parrot, Simon was his parrot.

And participated in our own church's Trunk or Treat:

Ours was held on Halloween during Trick or Treating hours in the evening. There were plenty of trunks to trick or treat at and hot dogs and hot chocolate to snack on. Landon is sitting in Daddy's Illini stadium-themed trunk.

Happy Halloween!
