Halloween Parties!

October brought some fun parties our way! We got to celebrate my nephew's birthday with a Jedi Training party. AWESOME!! All the kids were trained in the Jedi arts and then they got to destroy the Death Star - a pinata full of candy!! :) Way cool!

My nephew - the Jedi

We carved Jack-o-lanterns at my mom's house a few days before Halloween

Joss sat on Grandma's lap and watched everyone go by in costume - loved it! My dad was a Smarty Pants!

I love Jossi's kissy face!

Jilli was a witch, Miah was a farmer/hobo and Jess was a zombie cheerleader... Cutest kids ever!!

Feeding the Ducks

I loved going to feed the ducks as a kid. We had some leftover bread and took all of the kids down to feed them in our favorite spot. Jossilyn loved watching them!

Throwing out bread

So many ducks!
