Halloween '09

We had an eventful week full of Halloween fun! It all started Wednesday with Trace's party at daycare. He dressed up as Superman and then decided he wanted to wear a hat like his friend Addy, thankfully Ms. Heather let him borrow hers.

The party was lots of fun, complete with a pumpkin pizza and moonpie owls on a stick. Trace was the first to finish his!

Then it was off to Trick or Treat on Sorority Row! Trace was a little scared at first, but after he realized they put candy in his bag for saying "Trick or Treat" there was little hesitation. We actually had to keep him from taking candy from the bowls at some point. He decided later that he had enough of the Trick or Treating and wanted to dive right into the candy.

Sorority row was really fun. We saw so many cute costumes, so I have some ideas for next year! You can also check out some pictures on the LSU Web site, like this one:

Then on Saturday, we drove to Hammond to visit Ms. Heather's Pumpkin Patch. Trace loved it! They had a petting zoo with lots of animals, pony rides, face painting, pumpkin picking, decorating, tractor riding, oh and this big blob of a thing to jump on. I'm glad we went. It made for a great family day.

Then, it was on to the main event...our pastor's annual Halloweenie Roast! The kids met up for Trick or Treating around 6:00 and walked the neighborhood for treats. Ernie was a good sport and decided to dress up as Superman with Trace. Trace kept saying "Super Trace...da dada da!"

I dressed up as what was supposed to be a bubble gum "It's a Boy!" cigar, but I don't think most people got past the "It's a Boy" on my shirt. So for those of you who haven't heard...It's a boy. ;) And his name is Fisher Job Ballard. ;) ;)

After Trick or Treating, we roasted hot dogs & marshmellows and just sat by the fire. Trace loved playing with Josh's dog, Gilly, and hanging out with some of his favorite friends.
