Here are the details on our Halloween celebrations. On the Saturday before Halloween, Brett carved pumpkins for the girls. In the past, we have carved only one pumpkin, but this year he proposed that we get three--one for each girl. That made for a big carving project for dad. About halfway through the project, he sent me to Target to buy one of those pumpkin carving kits with the little flexible knives. Let me tell you, that $3.99 was well spent. Amelia's pumpkin is the silly face; Elspeth's is the kitty face; and Maitlyn's is the cat with the moon.
On Halloween, we went to the Fayetteville Square from 3 to 5 pm to Trick or Treat at the businesses there. We have done this for three years now, and it is the best trick or treating venue for young kids. There are very few scary costumes. It's still light outside, etc. The girls got a ton of candy at the square. Then we headed over to Wilson Park where Brett took some photos of them in costume.
After that, we ate an early dinner at Backyard Burger. Then it was on to the Fall Festival at UBC. Our friend, Rachel, goes to preschool at UBC, and she brought us a flier about it, so we thought we'd check it out. It was really neat, and the girls had a wonderful time. The girls enjoyed pony rides, sliding on a huge inflatable slide, jumping in the inflatable bouncer, playing games, and eating fourthmeal (a hotdog to supplement their early dinner). Amelia's favorite part by far was the bouncer. We had trouble getting her out of it! I think Maitlyn and Elspeth enjoyed pretty much everything, and they got to see their friends, Rebecca and Rachel.
Fun was had by all.
