Halloween 2011

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate.
The first one said, "Oh my! It's getting late!"
The second one said, "There are witches in the air."
The third one said, "But we don't care."
The fourth one said, "Let's run! Let's run!"
The fifth one said, "Isn't Halloween fun?"

...And fun is definitely what we had this Halloween! Reid (now being 2 1/2) COMPLETELY got it - he's practiced and played Trick or Treat over and over. And over again. Haha!

The Saturday before Halloween, we headed out to a "real" pumpkin patch in Mayflower, AR with a group of friends. I wish I had more pictures, because all of the kids had a blast! They had playsets, swingsets, slides, bounce houses, food, snow cones, hay rides, horse back rides... you name it! Reid's favorite part of the day was "riding the tractor to pick his pumkins"... We took a hayride out to an actual pumpkin patch to pick our pumpkins from the vine.

That following week was followed with not one, but TWO Halloween (Harvest) parties at Reid's school. He was so excited to have halloween cupcakes and cookies during class! Then the Saturday night before Halloween, some friends of ours threw a mega Halloween party. And let me tell you... the Phelan's KNOW HOW TO THROW A HALLOWEEN PARTY!

Here's our little Superhero enjoying some donuts from one of the games...

Showing us how "fast he can fly!"

All the Mommies... love this pic!

Then on Halloween night, we went to Palio's Pizza with the Darby's, the Smith's, and the Martin's before assaulting all of the neighbors with our tiny trick-or-treaters.

Here's Reid - ready to go!

Best shot I could get of a few of the kiddos at Palio's - Owen, Reid, Alex, and Avery.

Wagons were the transportation of choice during trick-or-treat!

Buddies! - Already digging into their candy =)

Look out neighbors!

Reider's loot - pretty good for a two year old!

We're already looking forward to next year!
