Fall Festivals

Over the past few days we have been trying to get our money's worth out of our costumes. I bought them Bogo at Target and paid $17.00 total for both. I thought it was a good deal since all the costumes I saw at Toys R Us were $35.00 a piece or more.

On Wednesday we went to the library for games and candy. 

Here is Son playing the fishing game that I first saw on Polyanna the movie. One of my favorite movies by the way! 

He got a sticky slimy stretchy something or other:

Princess collected the candy. The library employees were dressed as storybook characters and were hidden in the aisles:

I have been waiting to meet Mother Goose my entire life. If I run into the Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe anytime soon.... My childhood dreams will be fulfilled:

Here is Son rockin a Mohawk before he got his hair cut:

We bobbed for apples on Wednesday too. No one could really catch one, but it was still fun:

Thursday we went to Trunk or Treat at a local church. Here is Princess staring down a candy hander-outer. He said he wouldn't give her candy til she smiled:

She stared him down, never smiled and  STILL scored her candy! Don't mess with a Princess!!!!!!!! YOU WILL LOSE!

Today we went to IHOP for our free Scary Faced Pancakes:

And then got ready for the Fall Fest at our church. 

Mickey and Minnie were there:

They played games:

Pet animals:

Found the greatest bunny in the history of bunnihood:

Bounced in bounce houses. They had 9 or 10 different ones, so hardly any waiting in line:

Then we watched a helicopter land:

And took it for a spin. Princess's flying lessons are paying off:

We also saw Olaf from Frozen:

And rode a hayride:

The costume of the year was by far the Frozen Princess. I think 1 out of every 5 girls wore that costume. The most unique costume we saw was a boy covered in eyeballs with a sign that said "I'll be watching you". I couldn't figure out if he was supposed to be a monster, a stalker, or Sting.

At this moment I am exhausted and my babies have fallen asleep with sticky candy faces. I suppose that means they had a pretty good day.
