More Halloween fun....Olivia's school goes all out for Halloween with a Pumpkin Patch one day and Fall Festival the next. Olivia was very excited about both events and could not wait!
First up was Pumpkin Patch
They filled the playground with pumpkins right before pick-up, so as the parents picked up the kids, you could go and pick a pumpkin, play a little and have a snack. This was the first year they really got into it....Olivia couldn't wait to show off her other pumpkin dress. I got a text from Cate's mom that morning that as soon as she brought Cate into the class room, Olivia ran over yelling "It's Pumpkin Patch Day. Look Cate we are both matching in our pumpkin dresses!!" Her teacher told me the kids could barely take naps because they were too excited about pumpkin patch!
You have to find the perfect pumpkin
And then take lots of pictures with your cute friends
(Sadly, poor little Cate wasn't in the mood for pictures..)
And then its time to play!
But the best part is carving that pumpkin!
Showing off her jack-o-lantern & her new Frozen nightgown!
Fall Festival. The next day after Pumpkin Patch was Olivia's Fall Festival. She was SO excited and literally asked me every day for 2 weeks if it was Fall Festival day yet. That morning she was very direct when she told Matt and I that she could wave to us during the Parade of Costumes but we could NOT take her...we had to go get her back at her classroom. Then she instructed us to write her name on her costume "so everyone knows it belongs to mine!"
Despite a near-miss in traffic, we made it right in time for the parade. SO. CUTE.
And crashing Emma's family picture!
She loved all the games again this year!
Toss the Ring on the Pumpkin
Scoop a Duck
Pumpkin Boowling (this one was her favorite, as she kicked the ball into all the pins!)
Pin the Eye on the Monster
Then some snacks and playtime
It's hard to leave such a fun party!
