Happy Halloween!

 Halloween is one of my kids top favorite holidays. They really love it. This year we got to go trunk or treating a couple of times, one of which is to our new church. Wesley is Harry Potter (he just got done reading the 4th book and loves it!) and Greta is a strawberry Shopkin (shocking!). I was buying the items needed to transform Wesley into Harry and didn't want to shell out $12 for a cheap wand. My friend Jessica suggested that I just sculpt one and so I did. Took about half an hour to sculpt, bake and fire it and I didn't have to buy a single thing to make it. He loves it.

Pastor John and Wesley

We love Gwen and her adorable dogs.

We don't get balmy 87 degree Halloweens very often. It's just lovely! The kids had a nice parade to show off their costumes at school. I'm going to miss our elementary school when Wesley goes to middle school.

His buddy Alex went as Steve from Minecraft in a very cool homemade costume.

I did not sign up to be room mom for Wesley or Greta this year but rather to just help out with the parties. It's so nice not adding that stress. I was in charge of fruit for Wesley's party and found this cute fruit kabob idea. Kids loved it!
