Par-tay with the Cooks

I don't know how your Halloween Festivities went, but we had some really fun parties here. We went to The Cook's house (my sister) for dinner and games. Here is Jordan and Lexi balancing a ball on a spoon: (Notice how Mason is being his usual Masonater self and succeeding at knocking Lexi's ball off of the spoon) Charles and Marilee raced against Doug and I....and unfortunately, they won.

Another game we played was throwing 5 balls into the Witch's Cauldron. I wonder if Mason did such a good job because he stuck his tongue out to help him concentrate?!

Aunt Marilee had some really fabulous prizes. She is soooo ready to be a Grandma. Doug read a "scary" story to the kids:We all had a great time at the party. We were also going to go to a free corn maze in the area, but we hit really bad traffic on the way there and it closed before we got there. Bummer. Maybe next year....

Ward Halloween Party

We all enjoyed attending our Ward Halloween Party. It was so much fun. It was held on a farm. There were several games...Cake walk, Bean Bag Toss, Pumpkin bowling, Potato sack races, Donut on a string, Fortune Telling, Face painting, and pumpkin seed spitting (which, apparently, I am horrible at by the way)
Kaylee was an angel for Halloween (she is showing off her cake walk prize): Lexi dressed as a Witch: Potato sack races:
Jordan was a Knight for Halloween: Mason was Spiderman: Noah was a Dalmatian puppy (He even has the slobber part down): They had a hayride set up to take all of the kids to the pumpkin patch where they could pick out their own pumpkin.
They also had these really awesome tunnels out of big bales of hay. The kids played in the tunnels and on top:
After all of the fun and games...we had trunk or treat. The kids stocked up on candy. Jordan also attended another party that a classmate held that evening. Party party party.
