Our fun week

This week has been so fun!  We have been busy with Fall & Halloween activities every day.  I know I have worn you guys out with posts about our activities.  Every single day has been another post about pumpkins!  That is one reason I blog is our online scrapbook!  

I had jello ready one afternoon for Layla when she got out of school.  We were going to do jello jigglers in fall shapes, like Kelli did. 

It was a huge fail, but we still ate the jello!  We still had a festive orange after school snack.  I don't know what happened...for some reason the jello just wouldn't hold the shapes. 

I made a pumpkin sheet cake.  I will post the recipe soon.  It would be a perfect cake for Thanksgiving Day.  Maybe even in the shape of a turkey.  IT is so delicious.

The kids painted pumpkins.

Hayden asked for yellow paint.  He insisted on a yellow pumpkin.

They both did really good with the paints.  At the end though, they started fighting over colors.

But fun memories were made :)

This coming weekend is going to be so fun!  We have so many fun things to look forward to.

We have been watching the practice runs all week for the local airshow.

Here are a few pictures I took.  They fly RIGHT over our homes.

It is really loud, especially at nap time.  But it's amazing.  We get so excited about it and we all love it!

We will trick or treat a little on Sunday night, and we are also attending a Carnival on Saturday.
IT will be a super fun weekend!  I hope you all have a safe and fun weekend too!

I hate that your jigglers didn't work! Did you do the jiggler recipe or just the regular jellow recipe?!? Your pumpkins turned out so cute...I love the pics of Hayden painting his:)
