Halloween a bit early

Since we will be in Hawaii during Halloween, we decided to celebrate early! We started off the day taking some pictures on the porch in Averie's cute Halloween outfit.
Can you believe how grown up she looks? She really is starting to look like a little girl and not a baby! Brian and I wanted to take Averie to a Pumpkin Patch this year to pick our pumpkins. It was so busy! The line was ridiculous, and we decided to just buy our pumpkins at the store. Not before taking a picture of Averie on one of the tractors though.

Can you see the huge line of people behind Averie? It was insane.
We weren't even going to get Averie a costume this year because we knew we were going to be gone. AmyLyn and Andy decided to have an early Halloween party at their house so that the kids could dress up and carve pumpkins. We had to come up with a costume idea at the last minute. Brian gave me the idea and I slaved for 2 days on this costume. We tried to buy one for her, but there was nothing in her size.
Let me introduce you to our little "Angry Bird". Averie dressed up as the Yellow Angry Bird. I think it turned out pretty cute.

And how would she be an Angry Bird without a green pig?

Trying to get a picture of the two of them had its challenges. You get the idea though!

Brian was a good sport and took over for Sergeant.

Easton was a little green dragon. He looked pretty cute. We had to get their picture together.

After we got Averie out of her costume we started carving the pumpkins. Averie was not too thrilled about this. She didn't want any of the goo on her hands. She was ok watching Daddy and Mommy do all the work.

Pumpkins sure do taste good!

Brian's pumpkin turned out...beautiful?
Here are the three finished.

The last activity of the evening included decorating sugar cookies and watching Hocus Pocus! The cookies were delicious and the movie was not as great as I remembered! Oh well, good food and good company equal one fun night!
