As a project for school, Andrew (and our family) had to make a family turkey.  We could either use the picture that was sent home or make our own.  We decided to make our own.  This is how it turned out:

This year we went to my sister’s house in the cities for trick or treating.  Andrew had so much fun and says he wants to go there every year!  I don’t think that will work most years, but maybe next year we can again because Halloween will be on a Saturday.  Right after we arrived at Kelly’s house, the kids decorated the lawn tractor and trailers we would use for trick or treating.  While waiting for the pizza’s to bake for supper, Andrew and his cousins had a dance party.  They loved dancing to scary (well, not too scary) Halloween songs.  After a yummy supper of homemade pizzas and Halloween cupcakes, we were off to the “Boo Train” for trick or treating (this picture was actually taken in the afternoon while we were going on a test run):

Evan is too young to go trick or treating, so he stayed behind to help Daddy pass out treats, but here he is all decked out for the holiday:

Here are our trick or treaters at a house doing their thing:  Andrew is the doctor in green, Kyra is a monkey, Keely is a princess in red, Emma is the little ladybug, and Kaylee is in front of Keely and is a dragon/dinosaur.

Thursday night when we arrived at Grandma and Grandpa’s house, Andrew and Grandma wanted to carve pumpkins.  We had 2 to carve.  Andrew did one, and I did another one.  Andrew even made his own template to use!!

Here are some pics:
