We had a nice quiet Thanksgiving with my parents.  Mom prepared most of the food and we had a great feast.  The boys had fun with Nana and Papa!  These are the only pictures I have from the day, how sad!

Scarecrows decorated the Arboretum and Chase liked this banjo player.  They also had every kind of pumpkin/gourd known to man.  Some were a little creepy looking.
The fall color was beautiful!
We loved this funny looking woman!

We loved this huge owl too and the huge pumpkin Chase is climbing on.

Chase jumped up and down trying to get the leaves off the tree.
Jump boys jump!
Check out this huge scarecrow!

The boys threw some rocks into the pond

Owen peeks too

Our church has a wonderful event called "Trunk n Treat". We went for the first time this year and had a blast.  It was so fun to play games, win prizes, see friends, laugh, worship God and then go outside and trick or treat out of people's trunks.

Finally . . . Halloween night!  The boys were so excited.  Dinner came very quickly and I always forget it's a bit of a rush.  They easily got into costume and giggled with excitement.

 My little Owen Spider Man and Chase Bat Man

 Tough guys!

 This was how Owen wore his mask-I don't blame him, I wouldn't want that cloth over my face either!

 Heading out with Daddy, saying, "let's go to that house!"
 Run run!
 At the door

 Looking in the windows to see if anyone is coming.

 Examining the loot
 Nana Sandy has been here for 4 out of 5 Halloweens!  We were glad she could join us.
After examining candy they both held the big bowl for the kids who came by.  I told them to tell the kids, "Take one piece."  So when the first kid came, Owen says in a really deep voice, "ONE".  I had to laugh.  From there on out Chase took over saying, "Just take one," in this little sing song voice.  It was so funny!  They got high fives from the big kids who called them Spidey and Bat Man.  The boys had a blast!  When a friend came by, Chase peeked under the mask and said, "Is that you Jayden under there?"
