Happy Halloween!

This Halloween we've been busy.  To start things off, a couple of weeks ago we made a second attempt at going to a pumpkin patch.  Paul's grandma was visiting from Kansas so we thought we'd like to take her to a new pumpkin patch that wasn't far from our home.  This time was much more successful than our last visit. 

We took advantage of some photo opportunities
Alexa loved the "corn box"
We got to pick our own pumpkin from the patch
This looks like they're practicing their beauty queen waves which is pretty funny
We went on a hay rack ride
Then we attended Boo at the Zoo.  This was the first time any of us had ever attended even though Paul and I have lived in Lincoln for a long time.  The weather was nice (especially for this time of year in Nebraska) so we decided to take Parker as well.  They had a great time and Alexa learned very quickly to say "Trick or Treat" so she could get candy. 

Then it was time to celebrate Grandpa Tom's 60th birthday which happens to fall on Halloween. 
We had Witch Cake,
Monster burgers,
Bug Bites,
and Marshmallow Mummies.

Then it was time to let our creativity take over and decorate pumpkins. 

And finally, it was time to dress up and get ready for trick or treating.

All in all, this was a great Halloween!!!
