Happy Halloween!!!

Pumpkin Carving:
We finally got around to carving the pumpkins we had brought back from the Black Island Farms a couple weeks ago. Cydney was excited to draw the face and wanted to see what was inside.  I asked if she wanted to help take out the seeds, she was all about it, until she say them.

 Nathan losing interest real quick and Cydney not to sure about touching the seeds. Says "It's to slimy!"

 CDC Fall Festival:
We took the kids to the Child Development Center Fall Festival. There were lots of games, activities, food stands and contests for the kids to take part of.  Cydney was very proud of her Cinderella dress and walked into the building holding up the skirt with her fingers, just like a Princess.  She enjoyed playing all the games, getting some candy and other prizes and seeing friends and teachers dressed up.

 Getting a face painting. She decided she wanted a full face butterfly.

 "It tickles!"

 Checking out the artist's work

 Happy with her face painting

 Trick or Treating:
After work I hurried home to get the kids fed and changed, then headed out to go Trick or Treating.  Cydney was really excited to get out there and collect candy. She kept asking "What do I say?". I would tell her to say "Trick or Treat" when they opened the door, she would almost always do this as soon as I rang the doorbell, instead of waiting for the door to open. Once the door opened she was shy and would barely speak loud enough for them to hear her.  By the end of the night she was getting the hang of it and beginning to speak up. While walking through the neighborhood Cydney would see all the other kids in costume and comment on what they were dressed up as, "look there's a superhero, she's a princess too, and he's SCARY!"

 Ready to go.

 Posing for the camera

 Nathan is not too impressed, he just wants his bottle...

 and to go to sleep. 

Finally got the courage to walk up to a house on her own.

Overall it was a fun night, Cydney really enjoyed herself and asked when she could go again.  The next few days after work she would ask to go Trick or Treating.
