Rainy Halloween

Saturday was a busy day of fun.  We started the morning with the Fall Festival at the kid's school.  It is always great to get to hang out with school friends and play silly games.  Ben looks forward to the ring toss each year to try to win 2 liter drinks.  He once again won a Mello Yello!  
 Kate and her friend Marietta really got into the stuffed animal walk and cake walk.
 We came home with cupcakes and a new Beanie Boo!  And 2 excited kids.
 Perry even joined in on the fun which was awesome.  How cute are these cousins?!?!
 Late afternoon we had our traditional pre trick or treating dinner with the McClures.  I love these special traditions.  I hope it builds such great memories for all the kids.  We had taco soup and got ready to head out.
 And guess what happened when we got ready to head out...  Yep, it started pouring down rain!!  I am not talking sprinkles I am talking tons of rain.  It was crazy.  We had umbrellas and ponchos and tried to make the best of it.  Kids loved it.  Thankfully no one lost an eye due to an umbrella but we had several close calls!  It was a crazy scene with lots of kids from the street going together but it was so much fun.  The dads even drove a car that looked a bit like a clown car with how many kids were packed in.  They did't seem to care!
 We didn't make it as long as usual due to the rain but it was still so much fun.  We all came in and got warm and this girl fell fast asleep still with a little Halloween on her head!
Now on to November...
