Halloween Happenings 2010

We started with a trip to Schnepf Farms.  I took the kids out of school so they could go with me on my preschool field trip.

Logan’s pig won the pig race.  He was “crowned” with a pig nose.  Fitting isn’t it?

On Friday we went to the Halloween Carnival at church.  They started with a costume parade where they were able to trick or treat.


Then onto the games.

Funny note.  I had 2 or three costumes (a dino, Buzz Lightyear, a fish, and a fireman) for Kenyon this year none of which he was interested in wearing.  I came home from the kids’ school to find him perfectly happy in Ashleigh’s Cinderella dress-up.  We finally convinced him that being a fireman was OK.

New Mexico Balloon Festival

Balloon Fiesta '10 005

The fun started with a trip to Grandma’s and Grandpa’s House.  We went to a corn maze.  I don’t know who was having  more fun, Logan or Uncle Brad.  The kids didn’t really care about finding their way out of the maze, they just wanted to run around.Balloon Fiesta '10 018

Here is the group minus Uncle Steven’s Family, who didn’t get in until 2 am the next morning.Balloon Fiesta '10 019The day started early 4:15 local time, which meant 3:15 for us out of towners.
