Halloween Time at the Gebs'

For me, the thing that really starts getting me in the mood for Halloween is our
annual trip to Fritzler Corn Maze in Greeley. There are all sorts of things the kids love doing. The Jumping Pillow, Shooting Corn and pumpkins, "go cart racing", walking through "The Beast" (even if it's a little scary) and other fun activities. But most of all... picking out the pumpkins.
Who knew climbing a tower of hay could be so much fun?

Duck Races... I think this was a lot of fun. The kids got to keep their little plastic ducks. Those ducks were very much loved for a week after. Especially at bathtime.
The best shot I could get of all four munch-kins together.

Carving the ole' pumpkins. (I wish I would have gotten a picture of them all lit up. The kids drew their own faces and did most of the cutting out this year.)

Of course Halloween isn't Halloween without costumes, and our costumes for the year were......

Buffalo Bill

Our Future Dr. Lindsay Gebs

Our Baby Bunny
Our Tough Pirate

Since Halloween was on a Sunday and we opted not to do Trick-or-Treating, we had a Halloween party instead. It was a lot of fun! We had Halloween Eats galore and fun games like......
Donut eating contest.......
Bobbing for apples....
a fun "pin the grin on the jack-o-lantern", which there are no pictures of and trying to get ping pong balls out of an empty tissue box by wiggling your hips.

What a fabulous Halloween we had this year! On to Thanksgiving!!!!!
