|this doesn't really have anything to do with fall, i just love the picture!|
|making pumpkin seeds is slimy business!|
|enjoying food at their preschool Pumpkin Party with Peter's friend, Mason|
Peter's preschool had their annual "Pumpkin Party." This involved a parade in which all the preschoolers walked around in a short oval. Each class made a different mask to wear for the parade.
|this booth was the hit. they had to move ping pong balls back and forth between the buckets. who knew??|
|they had to spray the rubber duckies with a spray bottle|
|Dinosaur and Rango|
|Lady Bug Leona|
It was pretty funny watching a dinosaur, a Rango without a mask cowboy, and an Indian Princess running around our backyard. Matthew didn't feel like wearing his costume...although I finally got him to put it on for a minute and he did the courtesy of showing me his "roar."
The moms were amazed at how long the kids were willing to keep their costumes on. It got pretty hot at one point and Peter asked if he could take his off. Shortly later, "Rango" came up to me and asked if Peter "shared his clothes?" It was so cute! "Rango" wanted to get out of his costume so badly that he wanted to wear some of Peter's clothes. We worked out, but it cracked me up!
Matthew also had the opportunity to go to the library and wear his costume. He gets to go to the library every Tuesday and Thursday while Peter is in pre-school with Omi. He loves going!
Our Fall season would not be complete without a trip to the Pumpkin Patch. We always have so much fun.
This year, the Pumpkin Patch had Pony Rides, a Bouncy House, and a Petting Zoo. It was a lot of fun! Matthew loved feeding the animals. He could not get closer if he tried. However, he hated the idea of a pony ride. Peter hated feeding the animals. He did not want to get super close. However, he LOVED the pony ride. I don't get it.
|this is Matthew's favorite smile these days. I love it!|

Then came actual Halloween. They were so excited to go Trick-or-Treating!
It was fun to go trick-or-treating with my kids on the same street that I went trick-or-treating on when I was a kid.
On our way back to the house, Matthew as cracking me up. He kept grabbing his dinosaur tail and saying "Waggy, waggy, waggy." I managed to get a little bit of it on video.
We have really enjoyed Fall 2011!
