Flashback Friday- October Traditions

October is always full of so many fun activities and so many sweet memories. There is always trick or treating. This year the dog costume was handed down.

The girls usually choose a princess related costume. 

Neither of the boys were too into costumes. I think once they were in 4th grade they didn't dress up. Once my oldest stopped dressing up my younger son wouldn't  dress up (they are 4 years apart) Ninja was the choice of costume 9 times out of 10. 

October always includes a trip to the pumpkin patch.

Carving the pumpkins is always fun and everyone loves to do it. There are usually power tools involved in my husband's case. I am old school and pretty much stick to the triangle eyes and a toothy grin like my dad always did. everyone gets a pumpkin.

There have been a few times when the costume we planned on is not the costume worn Halloween night. The twins loved to dress up on a daily basis when they were younger so we have a pretty big box for the the younger girls to choose from.

The one time out of 10 he wasn't a ninja he was a pirate.

One year there was a pumpkin canon at the pumpkin patch. The boys liked it!

Sometimes we make more than 1 trip to the pumpkin patch.

My sweet little lamb. We will be having our annual pumpkin carving fest this weekend along with a couple of football games. Hope you have a fun weekend!!
