Trick 'R Treat

We went trick 'r treating last night, and everyone was excited to go!!.... opps, not Pooh bear. I think he was still spooked from the Halloween party from the weekend. Anyway, after a few houses he clued in pretty fast that it was well worth the effort to walk up to the doors by himself. He ended up having a good time afterall!

Twas the night before Halloween...

BOO! If this picture doesn't stop you from reading any further, I'm not sure what will!

...well the kids are already on a chocolate high! Help! and there's more candy to come!! Trick 'r treat'n is tomorrow night here in Newfields (don't ask why..?) so we are gearing up for another sugar fix. We spent the weekend in Milford at a Fall/Halloween weekend bash. We had a blast getting together with old & new friends, spending Saturday at Jody & Kevin's, then a Halloween potluck/party at the barn at Roger & Bonnie's for supper. The kids had fun going trick 'r treat'n in the spooky haunted house they set up in the barn, (ok, my kids chicken's out), then went for a fun hayride, and enjoyed a fireworks display thanks to Eric & Lori! After crashing hard, we continued the 'gobling' festivities on Sunday after mtg. at Brad & Shelleys.

I'm posting some of my favourite photos, but you can enjoy more photo's from the weekend on Kevin & Jody's blog. I'm really cheating here, but she got alot of great pictures of most of the familes, so I'll just add some snapshots I took.

Mom & Dad were also visiting us this week. We enjoyed a quick visit from them, taking them shopping and a trip up to Kittery & Kennebunk, as well as lunch at Bob's Clam Shack - our favourite. The kids sure enjoyed all the extra attention (and really loved getting spoiled while shopping, but hey, what are grandparents for?) but especially loved Grandpa playing the accordian for them. Kate's got groove.

Favourite quote from David today: "Mama, I have a headache in my ear."

Girls Night Out

Tuesday night was girls night out at Heather's place. It was a crisp night and we ate outside on her porch - it was gorgeous.
Eating by candlelight...

...the fireman had to come and assist.... (thanks Cyler!)

....all ended up well, just a little burnt napkin on the boot!

David's Happy Day

Yesterday David turned 3! He was excited to add to his collection of Cars! He wanted mac & cheese for his birthday so we went to the Macaroni Grill for lunch. After meeting we had a birthday cake with Richard & Nancy.

Opps, did I put this one in!
This morning was story time at the Newfields library, where the kids had a Boo Parade. They walked down to the general store & townhall where the kids got treats. We then went back to the library for a pumpkin cookie from Miss Jean.
