As tradition, we of course carved our pumpkins for Halloween. This year we tried to not go as extreme as we usually do. Dave carved the Superman pumpkin, Jackson wanted a scary Jack-o-lantern for his little pumpkin, and I did Dora the Explorer, since Jackson just loves watching it. This year Jackson was a football player and Megan was a cute little ladybug. We had a fun Halloween going trick or treating and to our friends house for a Halloween party.
Jackson and his little friend Gwyen reading a book together on her couch at her families Halloween party we went to.
Jackson always has to play in the leaves whenever he sees a big pile of them. When I went visiting teaching, him and his friend Savanna had a blast playing in them. He couldn't help but notice that Megan needed to play too. Jackson never wants to leave her out of the fun.
Our Ward Halloween Party
I didn't know being a ladybug was such a common thing for a little girl. It was funny there were two other little girls that were a ladybug other than Megan. We couldn't resist taking a picture of them all together.
Daves friend came to the ward Halloween party. Dave dressed up as Abraham Lincoln and I dressed up as a deviled egg, ha..ha..! It was a lot of fun with the dinner and trunk or treating they had. The ward parties are always a lot of fun to go to, they always do a great job with them.
I felt ambitious and made a Halloween cake for the Ward Party. It was fun, but a lot of work.
Jacksons Preschool Halloween Party
It's been a lot of fun the past few months doing preschool with Jackson and a few of his friends. We will do a lesson everyday with a letter, number and theme. This past week for Halloween, I taught, we did a lot of fun Halloween crafts and treats. One of the days I had a little Halloween party for them and played a few fun games like a cake walk, but with cupcakes, and eat a donut off a string. They had fun dressing up in their costumes. Jackson has had a lot of fun with preschool, it seems already, and has done so much better going to other peoples houses to play without having a hard time when I leave. It has made me sad to see him break out of his shell, now I have to remind him to give me a kiss, a hug, and say bye. He use to cry, hold onto me, and not want me to leave. But now he does wonderful. So that's been very nice to get over.
