For FHE on Monday we decided to carve a pumpkin. We let the kids draw whatever face they wanted, and not try to make it "better" for them. We just carved them how they drew them. We used one pumpkin to save on clean-up, and carved 3 sides of it...worked out pretty well.
This was Logan's side of the pumpkin.
This was Landon's side.
Marlee's side was just a bunch of scribbles, a little too hard to carve, so I thought she'd like a simple star. :)
They were all very proud of their pumpkin!
And here are pics of the kids right before we left for Trunk-or-Treat tonight. I made the kids' robes and scarves when we were in Prescott for fall break. It's always nice to have Mom McB close by for tips on sewing! Overall, I think they turned out well, and people were able to figure out who they were at the ward party, so that's always a good thing. :)
Marlee as Hermione Granger
Landon as Ron Weasley
Logan as Harry Potter
The three best friends ready to cast their spells! Landon had fun telling people at Trunk or Treat to "give me your candy or I'll cast a spell on you!" He thought he was hilarious. :)
Someone asked if I had a hard time getting them all to want to be Harry Potter characters. Logan and Landon were happy about it, but Marlee wanted to be Snow White. Unfortunately, her Snow White costume is 2 sizes too small, and is undone at some seams, so we told her she had to be Hermione this year. She didn't throw a fit or cry or anything...and once she saw the boys in their costumes, she was excited to get into hers. So they all had a good time. I almost forgot about Masen! We put him in some Phoenix Suns warm up pants and jacket and drew a goatee/mustache on his face....he was a Suns player. But darn it, we didn't take a picture! Duh, I can't believe we forgot. Oh well. Happy Halloween!!
