We got to go with Grandma and Grandpa Jaffa this year for a trunk or treat.
It was cold but the kids were CUTE!!!
This year with the exception of Cameron I let the boys pick their own customes.
Ben wanted to be a Witch and I convinced him to be a "BOY WITCH" and we dressed him like harry potter. But he had to have the classic Witch hat!!
Ethan wanted to be a pirate, which I think was partly inspired by Kaleb's Pirate birthday party.
And Poor Cameron ended up with a handie-down custom of Yoda.

Pirate Birthday Party

Mindi and les know how to through the best parties!
In the past we've had customes parties for Kaleb's Birthday. This year instead of coming dressed up they dressed you once you got here. They had all of these fun activites where the kids could earn different parts of a Pirate custome.

They really did have alot of clever games and activites for us to play.

And the kids were so cute all dressed up.
My favorite was the obstacle course they had set up for the kids. With a pirate ship, walking the plank, ect..

Like always their decorations were alborate and really awesome, they drew pirate things on their family photos on the wall with dry erase markers, they had a pirate flag, treasure chests, lights, and spider webs, ect..
They really know how to throw a Party.

ScareCrow Festival

Grandma and Grandpa Jaffa took us to the SCARECROW FESTIVAL
We really had a fun time!

They had a ton of little carnival type games for the kids.
I was pleasantly surprised to see the talent my kids had at throwing balls and bean bags, especially Ethan he is my little athlete.

They also had the funnest blown up slides and things
for the kids to climb in and jump on.

It was alot of fun for everyone.
Even though alot of the activities were centered around little kids,
Doug and lizzie that came too had a lot of fun.

The kids were so spoiled by Grandma Jaffa,
They got kettle corn, cotton candy, Toys from a fishing pond,
they got to pick out popcorn, eat a nice lunch and
they even bought Ethan his halloween costume.
The biggest highlight for me was all of Cameron's Firsts, horsey ride, Cotton candy, wagon ride, blow up slide, ect...

So I have been kinda busy trying to FINALLY get my house decorated. We've lived here for almost 2 years and I finally got Curtains for my kitchen done. These curtains were probably one of the biggest projects I have or will ever do with my CRICUT.
I am so proud of them. They turned out so good! Better than I even imagined.

I also got these other cute kitchen decorations. They only thing I need now to complete my kitchen is a little kitchen carpet for my sink.
