Today is the last “Halloween Season Monday”. Since I blogged last year, I don’t need to include 2017. If you like to take a look, just click on October 2017 in my Archives list.
Katelynn and Sara celebrated Halloween as a Pirate and a Witch. The neighbors were asking, if they can take the girls to “Trick-or-Treat” with them, since their girls said it would be more fun with more people. They all went to Deerfield in Plano, while Kevin and I stayed to give out candy at home. It was a quiet Halloween for sure. We had only a few kids.

In 2016, we went to quite a few events with the kids: Fall Festival at a local nursery, pumpkin farm, 5K Pumpkin Run at Joe Pool Lake, State Fair of Texas, etc. Our October was very busy.

This pumpkin could make a witch jealous. 😀 😉
I love this photo! Sara looks so adorable. ❤

It’s “Halloween Season” Monday, again. Today, I’ll blog about Katelynn helping me carving pumpkins, Sara’s First Halloween, and more visits at the pumpkin patch and the zoo.
Katelynn wanted to help me with the pumpkin carving. So, I’ve got her a little pumpkin she could play with and get the pumpkin guts out. She always loved to say: “We need to get all the pumpkin yikes out!” And then she played with the gooey inside of the pumpkin.
“We need to get the pumpkin yikes out of the pumpkin!” 😀

Sara was only twelve days old, when we celebrated Halloween in 2009. She was such a cute little Pumpkin. Katelynn wanted to help with the pumpkins again, while her little sister took a nap. Katelynn was very proud being a big sister. She really enjoyed taking Sara out for her first Trick-or-Treat. All bundled up we walked through the neighborhood and collected candy on this cool October night. The fresh air was good for the little munchkin.

Katelynn loves going to the pumpkin patch, because she can jump in the bounce house, go on hay rides and pick a pumpkin. Sara just enjoyed crawling around between the pumpkins. Every pumpkin had to be tested by giving it a good slap on top. We also went to the Pirate Days. Unfortunately “Boo at the Zoo” got rained out the day, we went to the Fort Worth Zoo. But it wasn’t the end of the world, either. The girls got out and had fun, anyway.

Bouncy houses are fun
And hay rides are fun, too.
“Mommy, I don’t want any photos taken. I’m hungry!”

Katelynn loves the jump ropes. She bounced all the way high up in the air.
Rain or shine, Sara is happy.

I love my scare crows, pumpkins, flowers, hay bales as Autumn decor. It’s so inviting.

At this time of the year, I usually see a lot of hay bales out in the fields. But finding the right field for some photos can be challenging sometimes. Either the light is not perfect, or the farmer put the bales too close together, which doesn’t look attractive for a little photo shoot. But I found this field across the highway. And when the sun almost set, the light was just at the perfect angle. I was lucky back then. Because now, there is a house community built on that very same field. I don’t like it. But it is part of the progress in the Metroplex.
