Happy Halloween!

We have been doing some Halloween activities over the past week. Last Sunday we went to a pumpkin patch/hay ride. The advertisements we had seen talked about a hay ride, pumpkin patch, face painting, pony rides, free pumpkin for kids and bounce house. Needless to say, we thought it sounded fun. Apparently however, they were just very good at advertising. They did have everything that was listed, but it was very small and very low budget. We were pretty disappointed. Oh well.. at least Jax doesn't care yet!

On Monday we went to a better place to pick out our pumpkin to carve. We stopped by the store on the way home and picked up the ingredients for pumpkin pie. We made the pie later that day. We carved our pumpkin a few days after that. On Friday we went to Ryan's work because they were doing trick or treating in the battalion hallway. We spent about an hour there, then came home and had dinner and a marathon of The Office.

Today we spent the day being lazy and just relaxing. In the evening, we met up with the Levy's and the Lee's to go on base and go trick or treating. Even though Jax is so young, it was still fun to do the Halloween thing with a kid!

Here's some fun pictures of all the festivities...
