Our pumpkin creations!

We carved pumpkins for FHE and this year decided to do more traditional pumpkins!  The kids LOVE this tradition and the best part was... all the pumpkins we carved were from our own garden!

Gardner Village!

The kids did not have school on Friday so Allison and I decided to take the kids to Gardner Village.  It was all decked out for Halloween with witches and is such a darling place to visit this time of year!
The crazies!

This reminds me of "da da da da da da" from the Wizard of Oz!

The kids and I

The spinning witches!

Watching the ducks!

It is such a darling little place to visit, but next time I want to go sans kids!
