October/Halloween Mega Update

The week before Halloween, the Adams family visited a local farm which had a pumkin patch and all sorts of autumn activities. Emily and Sarah were determined to select the perfect pumpkin. Here, Emily shows her prize pumkin. Obviously, she was not interested in some of the behemouths remaining in the patch. She wanted to be able to carry it herself.
Emily makes sure she has just the right one.

Melissa and Emily pose for a photo.

Eric, Emily, and Sarah do the same.

That same evening, we made a fire in the backyard to roast hot dogs and marshmallows for smores. Melissa shows her hot dog roasting technique.

Emily chills waiting for her hot dog to be ready.

Sarah: not so interested in hot dogs and smores, but contented just the same.

Later in the week, Emily and Sarah decorated their pumpkins from the farm. Apparently from the picture, it seems as Sarah has seen a ghost.

Definitely a ghost sighting.

Now on Sunday (Oct. 30), we visited the church with the Vaughns for an event called "trick or trunk." In a line outside the church, people decorated their cars, created fair-like games, and had candy for children to visit and trick or treat. Emily took the opportunity to sport her homemade ROBOT costume courtesy of Melissa. Emily loves robots.

The Trick or Trunk had a hay ride on which we all went. As you can see, Sarah was a skunk for the occassion (Dale had bought it at a yard sale earlier).

We all check out Sarah in all her skunky glory.

Our friend David Vaughn was the designated tractor driver for the hay ride. Here Brenda fixes the EMILYBOT 2000 while posing for a photo.

Sarah says: Happy Halloween everyone!!!!!!
