we've made it a family tradition every year we've lived in washington to go to jubilee farm to pick out our pumpkins, and we were all looking forward to doing it again this year. especially now that jack sort of gets the whole holiday thing. ;) we rode the hay wagon out to the patch, got our pumpkins, rinsed them off at the farm and watched the festivities. on the way home, b took us all to get hot chocolate and then we watched football all afternoon. it was the perfect fall day.
huddy was a total champ and didn't make a peep, just hung out in his baby bjorn and licked his sweatshirt the whole time. haha.
pumpkin CARVING, on the other hand, was not so much of a win. jack was grossed out by the pumpkin guts and preferred to watch b carve instead. i put this collage on instagram and it still cracks me up every time i see it. haha.
jack declared months ago that he wanted to be a pirate for halloween, which was fine by me since that's what he was last year and i already had the costume. ;) i wanted hudson to be a little parrot to go along with captain jack, so i whipped up his semi-homemade costume the day of our first party with a bunch of felt and a red onesie.
the preschool party:
this one cracks me up. argh!:
visiting dad at work (please note the giant xbox one countdown in the back -- that launch has consumed b's every waking hour for MONTHS now):
we live on a somewhat isolated cul-de-sac with very few kids, so we knocked on the doors of about four nearby houses and then went home. i think it was the perfect speed for jack since he was tuckered out by that time anyway. then we put the boys to bed, ate some of jack's hard-earned candy and watched hocus pocus. ;) such a fun halloween!
