An early "trick or treat" and pumpkin carving

Hello All! I know two posts in one day, so impressive : ) I wanted to include these cute pictures of our kids. Last weekend we spent at Great Wolf Lodge in Traverse City, Michigan. It was a great time as this hotel has a huge indoor water park and many fun child friendly activities. Last weekend the Lodge even had some "trick or treating". The kids were able to dress up and go to different locations in the hotel to trick or treat. Our kids were thrilled as they got to wear their costumes indoors where it isn't so cold : )

Grace is dressed as a Veteranarian as she is now obsessed with becoming one. She loves animals, especially cats. So her costume when found half off was perfect for Gracie. faith is Belle from the Disney movie, Beauty and the Beast. She is equally obsessed with being a princess so her costume again is so appropriately her. Luke is dressed up as a dragon. He is not obsessed with becoming a dragon, but her sure likes to growl at his sisters. This costume is the perfect excuse to growl and act like a boy. Luke loves to dress up as well as his sisters, but it is nice to see him not told by his mother hens what to wear.

This morning we carved pumpkins and roasted pumpkins seeds. Faith did not want to get her hands dirty, Grace went at it quite enthusiastically and Luke did it but wasn't quite sure this was really a fun activity. So this is a picture of the gang and Mommy getting started.

The finished products, Grace choose a cat, Faith the three blind mice and Luke a silly Jack- O-Lantern face.

Daddy and Luke, all ready to get messy. You will notice there aren't many pictures once people got messy because you can't take a picture with goop on your hands : )

The three kids and their creations. Have a great week and enjoy the pictures : ) Love, Crystal
