Fall Funfest, Trick or Treating, Pumpkin Carving and a Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

The girl's had a great time celebrating the Fall this year! Each year our church has a Fall Funfest complete with hayride, carnival type games, cake walk and more! Each year we have attended, Hillary Ashton has won the cake walk. It is her absolute favorite part of Funfest. We were so surprised that she her winning streak was broken this year :o( I think she was kinda shocked they didn't call her number! After winning a few pieces of candy, Le Le decided to take a break from the games and eat her winnings! Luckily, we were able to steer the girls clear of the game that has a goldfish as a prize this year :o) We still can't believe the goldfish they won last year, Cowgirl, has made it a year! Happy Birthday Cowgirl! We didn't want to test our luck this year!

Every year since Hillary Ashton was a baby we have gone to an awesome pumpkin patch close to our house, but they were closed this year. So on the 31st, we headed to a pumpkin patch in Mayflower. Besides the fact that we didn't get a picture beside the "How Tall this Fall" wooden scarecrow, it was great! The girls loved playing on the playground, feeding the animals and riding the John Deere tractors.

After the pumpkin patch, we headed back to the house to get the girls ready to go trick or treating. They both LOVED getting their hair curled and putting on make-up. Hillary Ashton insisted on curling little sissy eyelashes several times :o) They both enjoyed trick or treating at the first few houses. By the time, Le Le had her bucket about half full, she decided to just hang out in the wagon the rest of the night eating her candy, while big sister did the leg work for more candy!

The day after Halloween, Wal-Mart had their pumpkins on sale for a dollar so we bought a couple and had our first pumpkin carving!

Here are a few of my favorite pics:
