Halloween 2012

Since I've become rather bad about posting lately I thought I would lump all our Halloween fun into one big post. So be prepared...lots of pictures below! 

On Saturday after my big families pictures in Ames we headed to my parents to hang out for the day and the kids all played together. We had intentions of taking them to Living History Farms for the Halloween fun but it was really chilly that night so we opted to dress the kids up and mom and dad's and take pictures of them all together.

 On Monday night we carved the 6 pumpkins we had the kids were all sooo excited!! The girls loved playing in the guts and seeds and the boys didn't stop talking the entire time. Joel said at least 20 times that he love Halloween!

We were glad Jon's parents came up before we headed out last night so they could see the kids in their costumes and give them their Halloween goodies!  Then after we were all done my parents stopped over to do the same and see all the goodies the kids got.  We headed out around our neighborhood with Luke and Brady and families for Trick-or-Treating! 

 After watching the older kids just one time the girls knew exactly what to do and would grab their candy and run back to the wagon and put it in. Joel and Jackson were so cute...since we didn't take the girls up to each house they would ask for extra pieces of candy for their sisters and then throw it in the wagon at them before running to the next house.  

 The perfect way to haul the girls around!

Soccer pictures

There was a photographer that came to one of the boys' soccer practices and took their photos but being the photographer I am I wasn't about to pay for individual photos of the boys so I took my own! AND I ordered the buttons and all that jazz for the grandparents AND had them before the other photographer did!

Soccer games

I guess I forgot to publish this post! I wanted to share these pictures of one of the boys soccer games.  They played my friend Kari's team that her son Carter is on. It was such a nice warm day...I'm sure going to miss that weather this weekend!

Last soccer game

The boys had their last soccer game a couple weeks ago. They sure are missing it and can't wait for spring soccer.  Before the game they were doing a lot of stretches...it was so funny! After the game we headed to the coaches house to have a end of the season party. It was fun for all the kids to play together.

My 4 on the 15th

I know I was supposed to post this on the 4th as I have every other month but I've been far to busy to keep up with the blog! So here is a current picture of all the kiddos until I find some time to actually write up a blog post!
