Blaiden is picking a pumpkin for Adilene and himself.
Next up was our family trip to pick out pumpkins to carve. We had a big plan to go one afternoon when Fred was going to get off work early. I had really talked it up to Blaiden and he was ready to go when Fred got home. Fred ended up having to go surgery late that night and Blaiden couldn't wait another day to go get pumpkins so I ended up taking the kids and then we carved them when Fred got home. Adilene was getting ready to go to bed but before she did we made sure that she got to play with the pumpkin guts. It was so cute because she would want to touch it but the second she did she wouldn't like it and would pull her hand back. She did this several times with the same reaction. After she went to bed Blaiden and Fred were cleaning out their pumpkins. Blaiden has never liked touching the guts and this year Fred really tried to get him into it. This turned out into a pumpkin gut fight all over the living room! I was very funny during but not so funny when I kept finding seeds around the house for the next week.

Trick-or-treating was so fun, and actually handing out candy was just as fun. Adilene was not trilled with her costume and she wouldn't keep the hood on, thankfully it was just warm enough that she didn't need it.
Halloween actually was that Friday and the playgroup we go to had a big Halloween party and so the kids got to dress up again. One of Blaiden's friends dressed up as Minnie Mouse but the ears and gloves didn't last long with all the playing so I didn't get a good picture of how cute they were together.
This holiday did not disappoint and I know that each one is just going to get better. The kids are at such a fun age and I am enjoying experiencing these fun time with them. This was Adilene's last first holiday, its funny to think back to last year and how I thought I would be pregnant for another 6 weeks and it only turned out to be another week and a half.
