SO these are a bit out of order, but this morning we went to see the Witches at Gardner Village.
Collin was wanting his picture taken in lots of random places.
The token "mom" picture Collin takes everywhere we go.
Insert of the hanging pumpkin Mooler had us make. BIG hit once we sat down and actually made it. We will see if it survives more than 1 day hanging up in Collin's place of choosing and VERY accessible to Liam.
Collin's favorite witch....the one with the "nasty hot dog".
Liam loved pointing out the witches. I tried so hard to get him to say witch...alas, no.
He is smiling right now at this hula hoop witch....I think that was his favorite.
Most mornings, Collin will go in and start reading Liam some stories. This was just a really cute picture of them both VERY early one morning, but Collin has a lot of Liam's books memorized, so it's really cute to see him read to Liam.
Mooler activities...making jack o lantern cookies.... yes, candy corn jack o lanterns. Of the devil those things.
Cupcake the skeleton, Collin named him. He is made out of q-tips. Fun project from Mooler. LOVE pinterest.
Based on an idea from my cousin, I'm doing a simplified version of a countdown to Halloween. Introducing, "Mooler the Mummy". Starting October 1st, he "reveals" something fun like a treat, a fun activity to do, etc. It is a HUGE hit with Collin, which I knew it would be. We actually made it a few days ago, and he has been asking a zillion times a day if Mooler has done anything yet. He may reveal things a couple times a day, but I'm not sure yet. Hopefully I won't regret this....
Mooler's first reveal was to put up Halloween decorations. Ryan went and got lots of stuff from the dollar store for a graveyard in our front little area.
Collin loved the glow in the dark rats best, can't you tell?
Our wonderful neighbors have had an ongoing "help me guy" that they have in their front lawn. Going on 4 years now several times a day we have to go over and see him. He says "help me" in a spooky voice..... but no one wants to help that yucky guy. Geesh, he needs a bath. Seriously, this is a HUGE highlight for the boys.
Grave yard complete.
At a yard sale this summer I picked up this cool techno pumpkin. It changes colors and glows in the dark. Big hit. Proud of my yard sale shopping. We will see if all our stuff survives the O'Berry boys.
We are excited for all the other activities planned for October!
