October/Halloween was quite a marathon of pumpkin patches and dress up. In our house dress up is a daily occurrence, and usually more costume than one. But...as they get older, there is a little something different about Halloween.
First stop was Apple Hill. It just doesn't seem right to make applesauce if you don't go get the apples there. We intended to pick the apples ourselves, but this was the time of the big fire, and as we drove closer we got a little nervous. SO, we stuck to the farms that were a little further out. We also managed to fine apple donuts, apple pie and cider!
Nana & Steph took the kids on an adventure to the next pumpkin patch in Elk Grove. It was a new one they hadn't been to before. Good times were had by all!
Then we usually attempt a friend group shot with whoever can make it, and some cousin pics.
Some holidays got smoother than others!
What a difference a year makes!
Gino had lost the head piece by the time we did pictures with Cole
Then let the trick or treating begin. Everyone does it differently but I choose to spread it out all week and see a few family/friends a night so I don't have to do it all at once. From this point on Beast was out and Batman was in!
A visit with Grandma Carol & Patsy before letting out some energy at gymnastics!
Batman got to dress up for school too. He and Stella were looking pretty cute!
No shortage of fun or candy this Halloween. Making Memories, what more could you ask for!??
