Halloween festivities

I can't believe that Halloween is in three more days!  This month really flew.  We have been having a blast getting festive around these parts...with crafts, playdates, cute outfits and costume making!  I still feel like there is so much that I want to fit in before Saturday!

Last week we went to our towns fall festival and had a blast.  Brynn picked out a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch, played some carnival games, pet some animals in the petting zoo and went on a hay ride.  She just loved these horses.

We also had our Halloween playdate party with our playgroup friends.  We just love these kiddos.  We have been getting together since the kids were tiny for little holiday playdate parties and the kids just love it.  It has turned out to be such a sweet tradition.

Brynn has been having a blast doing Halloween crafts during our school time, and playing little festive games like this costume matching game.  I taught her the song five little pumpkins last week and its the sweetest thing to hear her singing it at night on the baby monitor.

We made this little witch and we take off one link of hair each day to countdown till Halloween.

I try to incorporate lots of fun cooking projects for each holiday.  Brynn really enjoys being in the kitchen, helping and snacking along the way.

As far as costumes go we picked out what we were going to be about two months ago.  Brynn could not be more excited about it.  I love how she is just as excited about everyone else's costumes as she is her own.  I love carrying on my moms tradition of making the costumes.  We always went to the store together and picked out all the fabric and materials.  I had so much fun doing that this year again with Brynn and her being so involved and interactive.  I'm pretty sure this is the very best age.

And we can't forget matching pajamas, and cutesy Halloween clothes on the daily! Having girls is way to much fun!

We have so much to do the rest of the week.  I have to put the finishing touches on our costumes.  Take the girls to the pumpkin patch to take pictures together, make some neighbor gifts and get things ready for my grandparents to come into town.  They are coming to meet Jolie for the first time and see the girls in their costume and watch Brynn trick or treat :)
