We Love October!

So far this month we have taken some fun pictures:
Here are the girls enjoying Daddy's Sunday morning monster (German Pancake) and peanut chocolate slush.
Here are the girls doing something they absolutely LOVE, wearing my cloths and shoes and being Mama!

I tried doing the girl's hair in a twist around their heads one Sunday morning and they both fell out after about 5 minutes. 

We went to a Fall Festival that the Village of Westcreek (our community) put together.  It was actually pleasant outside and there were not too many mosquitoes out either!  We had messy Cheetos and hot dogs,
Rode ponies,
Enjoyed a little petting zoo,

Met Buzz Light Year

And Elmo,

And got our faces painted!  Fun night!
Today it was actually chilly outside all day.  We were shocked.  I loved it!  We turned our garage door into a monster for Halloween.  Our garage door has these two hideous windows that made perfect monster eyes.  We just used green duck tape for the mouth. 
We replaced the regular light bulb inside the garage for a red one and then put black lights in the side lights and wrapped green spider webs around them and the bushes.  Every time we go in the garage we pretend like we are being eaten by our monster house! 
I am making ghosts out of milk cartons that I have yet to stick lights in so they glow and add more as we drink our milk:)  I got the idea here:
I also made this monster wreath out of tulle.  I got the idea here:  I bought some sparkly green tulle but not nearly enough so I ended up buying some orange.  The sparkly tulle made the biggest mess ever.  We had sparkles all over the house by the time I was done making this.  The teeth are sparkly and also the purple ribbon. 

We are ready for Halloween.  Calree is going to be Violet from Incredibles and Dani is going to be Tinkerbell but for the party that our ward is having Matt is going to be the Lorax and the girls and I are going to be Truffula Trees ( we found these wigs at Target that gave me the idea).  We invited some neighbors over tomorrow to enjoy some Autumn treats.  I am going to make pumpkin butterscotch cake and slice up apples to dip in a home made caramel sauce (because caramel apples are so hard to eat).  I am also looking forward to going to Howl-O-Scream at Sea World and at least one pumpkin patch.  I am also excited for Dani's birthday on Friday!!!  I will be doing a birthday post later this week.  We are celebrating with just us this year, it is going to be great!  Hope you all have a great October week and enjoy the fall colors for me because there are none here.
