The Halloween Happenings...

Halloween is in full swing this week at the Springer house.  On Monday night for Family Home Evening, we decided some pumpkin carving was in order to get us in the holiday mood.  Me and Bianca had a blast taking out the "guts" while Jack stood by and complained that it was gross and "gisdusting"

Bianca wanted to show you what the guts looked like...


And here is me.  There is little evidence on the blog that I actually exist, so there you have it.




Hey Jack, do you want to join in on some family fun?

"No fankyou"

{see that little gash on Jacks cheek? Um, yeah...that was a trip to the ER for 3 stitches after an unfortunate stumble off the couch onto the corner our ottoman. Man, that kid is always keeping me on my toes.}


There are no pictures of the finished pumpkin, daddy had to step in to do the carving and I had my hands full trying to keep two curious kiddos from getting their fingers chopped off.   But it's a dandy...triangle eyes, a square nose, and a crescent moon for a mouth.  We kept it simple as the attention spans were dwindling :)

Tonight we had the annual Trunk-or-treat.  Bianca and Delaney each have an adorable tutu, so I decided to make them into charming little garden fairies...it's amazing what can be done with some hot glue and dollar store flowers and wings!
  
Bianca was beyond ecstatic to have such a pretty outfit to wear...


There you go, work it girl.

Baby D was pretty indifferent. 



 Or maybe she didn't love it afterall.


And then we had an outlaw.  It is impossible to get a good picture of Jack if there is ANYTHING going on around him...this kid won't sit still for a second.  I'll see if I can snap a better picture on halloween.


We have already had a fun filled two days...we'll have to see what the rest of the week brings!! stay tuned for more!
