The week began with the cleaning out and carving of the pumpkin. I can't find the pic of the finished product! Jeremy did a really good job of carving. Haiden hated the way it felt (but he'll stick his hands in mud??) Hannah loved it and had a great time throwing the seeds and gook all over the kitchen.

Wednesday this week, we visited Great-Grandma and Grandpa McLean and I took the kids to Trunk-or-Treat at Sunshine Church in GR. It was very crowded and the kids were a bit overwhelmed so we didn't last long there, fun to have tried at least.

Thursday was Haiden's class party where they did a "fruit tasting" rather than candy/cookies/cupcakes...I am sorry to say that Haiden and I tasted pomegranate and after the initial first taste, which wasn't that bad, we both just about died when the follow-up hit us! YUCK! I mean, I've had pomegranate juice and popsicles and it was just fine...the actual fruit? Not liking it so much.

In the morning, his class visited a local nursing home and sang to the residents. Haiden was a little overwhelmed with the class party (the entire program was involved, K through 5, so about 60 kids) and I couldn't come until a little after the party started, but he had fun once Hannah and I were there. Hannah wandered off in the school and a search party of 3 parents, the principal, and a secretary had to hunt her down. She was found giggling and sitting on a bench with a few kids from Haiden's class. Upon seeing us all coming at her, she ran the opposite direction.

Friday was Halloween and it was so nice out! Temps in the 60s and sunny....And here Haiden is showing off his candy. Hannah was having fits in the parking lot, so she didn't get her pic taken. We had to leave our area to do trick-or-treating seeing as we live on a street that just is not set up for that sort of thing. We parked at his school and went to his teacher's house and around that block. We actually only did about 10 houses or so before Hannah started acting up, and after Haiden was traumatized by a very scary haunted house, we were pretty much done for the night. They had fun though and got the candy they wanted.
I hope you all had a good Halloween!
