Halloween Fun

Last weekend we went to Fort Worth and took the kids to Boo at the Zoo. If you've never been before, it really is not about being at the zoo at all. It is just a lot of fun for the kids. You get candy tickets with each admission and the kids get to go to different candy stations around the zoo to "trick-or-treat." They also have a few shows and as we were nearing the end of the path, we found a neat area set up with carnival games for the kids. Unfortunately, as I tried to snap pictures of the kids playing games, the batteries died. Guess we'll just have to go back and take more pictures next year.

Halloween Night:
Abby as Cinderella and Lauren as Tinker Bell of course! We have gotten our money's worth out of that Tink costume I tell ya.
Look at our SWEET Caleb. As you know, Caleb is obsessed with Thomas. For some reason, he did not want to wear his costume. See below:

We fought with him and fought with him. Finally we just strapped him into his car seat and left.

Yes, she is always this happy!

We started off the night at a festival put on by St. Joseph School. There were plenty of games for the kids. We ran into several of our friends from church but didn't think to stop and get pictures together.

The kids got to decorate their own cookies.

Mommy and Thomas. Look at this boy. Not only did he keep his costume on, but by the end of the night we got him to wear his hat AND smile!

Look at those HUGE pumpkins. After the festival we went home to trick-or-treat in our neighborhood. Unlike our old neighborhood, there were tons of kids. It was a fabulous night.
