I haven't posted any new pages in awhile. Life has been busy. I have made maybe 1-2 layouts a week the last month and half. I finished up April 2010 and started May 2010. Josh is leaving for a few weeks soon, so I will have nothing to do in the evenings. I got some new scrapbook supplies for my birthday and I can't wait to use them!
We had to go on base to trick-or-treat. We left early which was a very good idea. The line to get through the gate was pretty long. This year we went trick-or-treating with the McMillian's. They have 3 little girls who are just adorable. They are the our only friends on the island so far. All the kids get along so well.
The kids had so much fun trick-or-treating. It was supposed to rain but the rain held out and only misted a few times. It was humid and we were all pretty sweaty by the end. The kids got a ton of candy. They all had so much fun!
These 3 pictures below were taken by Erica. I love how they turned out!
Blythe just loves Carson and always wants to hold his hand.
After school we came home and had a quick dinner. The kids were beyond excited for trick-or-treating. They each wanted to get 100 pieces. Carson wanted skittles, Cooper wanted licorice, Emma wanted lollipops and Parker wanted chocolate. They were so excited!
Poor Emma was sick all morning. By lunchtime she was keeping food down and was all better. It was the craziest thing. She was very upset when we said we were going to stay home and not go to the trunk-or-treat on Camp Foster. But, she was feeling better so we said we could go. The kids were so excited to finally wear their costumes.
Carson wanted to go as an Old Man and save his pirate costume for Halloween. Carson loves the old man mask. He is so silly when he has it on. Cooper was very excited about being Jango Jett. His costume is pretty heavy, but that didn't bother him. Emma and Parker are the cutest little Batgirl & Batman. They are so funny. They talk about going to the batcave and fighting bad guys. So cute. We drove over to Camp Foster and did a little trunk-or-treating. The kids really wanted to go in the Haunted House. However, Josh is terrified of them and I thought it would be way to scary. The boys were bummed but the little ones would have been so scared!
Here in Okinawa it is still in the lower 80's. There are no leaves falling or turning colors. It just does not feel like Fall or Halloween time. We are all still pretty bummed there will be no pumpkin patch visit this year. We usually go 2-3 times in October. Fall and going to the pumpkin patch is one of our most favorite seasons and fall activities. So, here are some favorites from the past 7 years.
