We celebrated Halloween three different times this year but surprisingly not on October 31st. This may be picture overload, but there is so much cuteness I couldn't whittle it down.

We went to Hall's Pumpkin Farm in Grapevine a couple of weeks before Halloween. It was amazing! It was completely free and they had tons of pumpkins, a playground, petting zoo, and a hayride (you had to pay for that.)

I made the hat and pants of Will's costume, found the sweater vest at a used clothing store, and we already had the white polo and socks. His costume cost less than $10!

I made Reese's little bunny hat and tail. 

Eating pumpkin seeds

This is one of Matthew's favorite pictures ever. 

This place is gorgeous! Who knew this was in the middle of the metroplex? 

He LOVED the tractor! 

Reese did not love it so much so we had to bail. 

We also went to Boo at the Zoo. Will and Reese dressed up and got lots of candy. A lot of the animals also had a pumpkin inside their exhibit for them to enjoy.

The night before Halloween we held a Trunk or Treat at our church. We had to move the party inside due to bad weather but we still had a great turnout.

Are these not the two cutest boys you have ever seen?

Will is obsessed with the Texas Rangers right now. We go walking 3-4 times a week and he is always on the look out for the Texas Rangers "T". There are lots of addresses with similar "T"s: TCU and Texas Tech to name a few. We always cheer when we find one and then he immediately asks for more. 

Southside Annual Campout

This past weekend was the annual campout. It was so hot! On Saturday, the high was in the 90's but it cooled off that night and we got a little rain. This is one of the weekends we look forward to most out of the whole year. It did not disappoint.

I didn't realize until this weekend that we didn't have any tennis shoes for Will in his size. He pretty much lives in flip flops during the summer, so we had to improvise. 

Maybe we should get Will a tricycle for Christmas? 

Ruby & Will
Will really bonded with Ruby & Stephen Brantly this weekend. Unfortunately, the Brantlys headed to Africa this week to be missionaries to Liberia for two years. We already miss them greatly!
