Happy Halloween!

This fun weekend keeps getting better! Last night we went to my parents house to carve our pumpkins. Gracie and Matthew did pumpkins too. The girls helped us get all the gunk out. Well...Heidi did...Natalie thought it was yucky. :) Gracie scraped her pumpkin clean inside. Seriously...I have never seen such a clean pumpkin! Matthew wanted his to be a surprise so he went to the front porch to carve his. Shane and I carved our pumpkins and then I made the girls pumpkins polka dot. I saw it on pintrest and it actually turned out pretty cute. 
Then today after the kids got up from their naps, I got them in their costumes. They were so excited!! Natalie decided to be Sleeping Beauty because she wore a pink dress and Heidi wanted to be Cinderella because her dress was aqua. :) I have to say they looked really cute! This was the first year we took the girls trick-or-treating. The past years we have had them help us pass out candy but this year they actually got to go door to door. They had so much fun! First we went Publix. They had a safe trick-or-treating there. It was really fun. They had games for the kids to play in bakery, frozen foods, pharmacy and produce and when they finished the game they got candy. After that we came home and they went to the neighbors houses. They were so cute! After we went to the few houses close to us we started passing out candy. The girls would both give each person a piece of candy. They were so excited to see all the costumes. My neighbor brought out a bottle of wine and we each had a glass while the kids passed out candy. It was a pretty fun night. :)

I saw your Halloween post earlier and it would not let me leave a comment. I'm glad I came back to try again because you added a bunch of pictures I didn't get to see before. Great pictures of the girls pumpkins and them Trick or Treating. So cute. Love you. Daddy
