After the Hoot!

Well! Hope everyone's Halloween was safe and fun! Ours was good...candy overload has set in now...Isn't this little ghost cute? #2 gave it to me yesterday! he made in art class at school.
We don't stay home on Halloween because our church always puts on a mini carnival for children down in the city. A fun safe alternative to the scariness that goes on! We have free hot dogs and chips, hot chocolate and kool-aide...Candy...candy and some more candy!

OOps! Spiderman stopped by...There are games for the children like pumpkin toss, pumpkin bowling and fishing for you guessed it! Pumpkins..
Here are some children playing the pumpkin toss, that is our pastor over there next to the pumpkin. We all get involved and it really is a fun time for the family.
Yup, that's me, I always do the face painting! There were so many kids last night, I think I painted over 100 faces!
It was a blustery 40 degrees F. and nothing feels better than a nice hot bath after an evening of candy and fun...Isn't this bath confetti cute? I picked it up for the boys and they really had fun with their bath last night...
A silky swirl of bats, pumpkins and moons! Again, hope everyone had fun!
Have a great rest of the week! Don't eat too much candy LOL!
Hugs...

I love that bath confetti! Yay for you guys doing a Halloween alternative. My husband and I feel like the only ones who ever do an alternative thing. This year we stayed home because our son was sick but in year past we always put on an alternative party. Blessings... Polly
