Some Autumn Fun

Well my kids are now off track (year round school) so I have no time to myself and have to think up things to keep them busy. So in the next few weeks there may be less scrapping/crafting and more running around finding fun things to do.
On Thursday my sister's and I took our kids to Gardner Village, which is a walk around shop area that is decorated with funny witches all over. It's a free event that is fun for kids as well as parents. Well with 4 moms and 16 kids it's not an easy task to herd them all around but we did it. Then we took them to Chick-Fil-A for lunch and then back to our house to run and play while we sat and talked a bit. On Friday the kids went with Dad to the Scarecrow festival were they got to do all sorts of bounce houses, games, making rockets and face painting. I got a day without kids to run some errands. Then we had a cousin Birthday/Halloween party so the kids got to get there costumes all ready. We had a Scream ghost guy, A surfer dude and Wendy from "Wendy's" fast food fame. We plan on going to the pumpkin patch this week to get our pumpkins for carving and then to a haunted house (they are getting brave). On Saturday we have a church Halloween party and the kids get to dress up and play games and get all sorts of treats. Then maybe next week we will take a trip to the zoo. Wow rereading that made me tired. I better get my energy up for the next 3 weeks to come.
