This year for Halloween, Auntie Delta, the boys and I attended the Harvest Party put on by our church, North County Christ the King. We all had a great time, and it was nice to be indoors in a nice, warm building. Collin had left earlier that day for two weeks in Japan, so Auntie Delta's help was greatly appreciated.

For his first Halloween Vaughn was a pumpkin.
There were games for the children to play; here Finnian is bowling. Every attempt earned the child a prize, which was a piece of candy.

There was a cookie decorating station...
...and these awesome giant inflatable rings to bounce off of one another.
Ronan and Latham especially liked these. Finnian was still a bit too young to participate in this activity.
There was also a version of the good-ol' favorite, Cake Walk. Every child walked away with a cupcake.
The best part about the Harvest Festival was that the boys had so many games and activities to participate in versus standard trick-or-treating. And they got some candy, but not the obscene amounts that can be collected going door-to-door.
We hope you had a Happy Halloween!
