I don't like Halloween. Every year we go through this, "Are we going to do something, and if so, what?"
This year, we dredged up some costumes from the dress up bucket (which is actually two huge totes at our house), and went to a harvest carnival at a local church.
Sparkle and Fluffy went as crayons.
Left over from the year that most of the kids were crayons. I'm thinking this must have been 2005.
I have to say, this little church did a GREAT job. They had free food (hot dogs, nachos, chili, steak sandwiches, sodas, waters, cotton candy, popcorn), bounce houses and other inflatable play areas, and lots of games. My one critique was that almost every single game involved throwing something. They could have used a fishing game or a rubber duck run or a lollipop tree.
Brianna made the noble sacrifice of showing the little kids how to eat cotton candy.
Hannah had never had it before and just wanted to try "a little piece."
I wish I could show you the picture of her face with some in her mouth! Unfortunately, Fluffy is in the background of that one. But, trust me, her expression is hilarious.
We pooled the younger kids' candy. This is Jack, Hannah, Sparkle, and Fluffy's haul from the carnival.
The older kids got to keep theirs, and have enjoyed trading it and rationing it out.
360-something days until we're faced with this moral dilema again.
