We had mummy dogs, chilli, and of course the smoking rootbeer. We had plenty of dry ice because I have never bought dry ice before and didn't realize that they could cut up the ice in pieces so I bought the whole ten pound block. Needless to say we had lots of ice leftover for smoking pots for the front porch, and with the rest Daddy taught the boys how to make dry ice bombs.
The more kids you have in a picture the harder it is to get a good picture, but of course we always try.

How cute, little Tinker Bell and Cinderella

Doughnut on a string

Just try and guess who won the doughnut on a string contest? Yes, Brenner won and he didn't even use his hands. Cayden got very fustrated and grabbed the doughnut and started eating it.

Our church Halloween party!!

Gentry made a cute bean bag toss for one of the activites and it was a big hit.
Cayden with his friends Tanner, Nathan, and Garrett. What handsome little boys. Brenner hanging out with Brett, don't they look like they are up to no good.

Brenner loves the candy corns. He thought he was a candy corn vampire.
Cayden was so proud of his marshmellow that he wanted me to take a picture of it.

Hanging out and cooking smores before the laser show.

Aren't the three little piggies so cute.

Halloween at Stone Mountain

After our chores we went to Stone Mountain with Mitchell, Abby, and Lindsey. We had lots of fun, we went to the pumpkin patch, roasted marshmellow, and watched the laser show.The boys found a cool tree to climb.
They had lots of cool decorations. They had pumpkin people. Mia loved the mermaid one.

Surprise from Grams and Pa

On Saturday after our chores and before our trip to Stone Moutain we got a very cool Halloween package from Grams and Pa. It was a cute tin full of candy and popcorn. Thank you Grams and Pa!!

Saturday Morning chores

Brenner's favorite chore is sweeping the stairs. I am glad he likes doing that because I don't. Cayden likes to use the swifter and clean the hardwood floors. So, now I just need to get them to love to clean the toilets and fold my laundry and I will be set.

It is about time for the boys to earn there keep around here. I taught them how to clean windows, and they thought it was great fun.

Hanging out in our graveyard

The kids saw these pumpkins at the store and had to have them, so we got them to match- one big, one medium, and one small.
Grams, are you glad to see that your Grandkids names are no longer on the tombstones. Gentry hopes you can now sleep better at night. =)

It is time to stain our fence, it is turning a little bit gray, so we decided to just do it. We were shocked at how expensive stain is. We were also told that one maybe two five gallons of stain should do it. We are at the bottom of our second bucket and we are not even half way done. It is just like every project, it always cost a ton more than you think it will. Gent and I joked that we can just leave the back of the fence unstained since we never see it, and that might save a couple hundred. Ha, Ha. The boys were dying to help and when Mia saw the boys painting, she wanted to do her part. I let the boys do a couple of panels while gent wasn't watching, the perfectionist he is. I am surprised he is letting me paint. Cayden got bored and didn't like it when he got stain on his hands so he was done. Brenner on the other hand loved it and wanted to do more.
