Musical Chair-a-thon

Every year, Owen's preschool has a musical chair-a-thon that helps raise money for various events throughout the year.  The kids go in with their classes and play musical chairs. This year was so much different than last.last year where the kids had NO idea what was going on....they wouldn't even get out of their chair! ha!  This year, most of the kids kinda got the concept and would walk around the chairs...when the music turned off, some would race to a seat while others were still trying to dance to the music...too funny! Owen had a great time! Can't wait to do it again next year!
Owen is still in the game....
having a good time
Luckily at the end they were all winners!!! They all get to pick something out of the prize box, which makes them all happy campers!!!

Happy Halloween!

By the time Halloween actually rolled around, we had already had a lot of practice at the whole trick or treating routine.  After Brent got home from work, O got all geared up in his train conductor costume and out the door we went.
We decided to stay in our neighborhood and just walk around, rather than having to drive somewhere.  We have LOTS of kids that trick or treat in our neighborhood.
We didn't hand out candy this year since we were out with O.  In the past, each year we have so many kids coming to our house, we always ran out of candy and had to go to plan B - cut off the front porch light!

We went through our neighborhood for about an hour or so and then we all headed to Chick-fil-A for a late dinner.  O had a ball and was very excited to get his own candy.  However, we went to this one house and the man dressed up on the front porch jumped out and scared O.  He dropped his candy bucket and started crying.  It didn't last long and he didn't get scared any more.  It was a night full of fun!

Trunk or Treat

We enjoyed Trunk or Treat at O's preschool again this year. This is the first year he really got into the candy and was very protective and proud of his treat. So glad he has so much fun.

FOL Halloween Party

Owen's preschool had their Halloween party the Wednesday before Halloween. This year, given O's slight obsession with trains, we decided he would enjoy being a train conductor. We bought his some striped bib overalls, borrowed a hat, and used a red bandana. 

He looked so cute and he really enjoyed dressing up in his costume. He put his train whistle he got at Day out with Thomas at Tweetsie in his pocket and he was all set. You could hear him saying "all aboard". It was too cute.

The party was at 10:00. so afterwards, he left with me.  Instead of going home we decided to head to the Farmer's Market to check out the pumpkin house and grab a pumpkin. The weather was gorgeous!!  What a perfect day to take advange of these few far in between perfect fall days!
Owen had a great time!
