10/30/10: Green Goblins end of season

We had another great season. The kids had a lot of fun and enjoyed playing and seem to also be getting a lot better. Go Green Goblins! Can't wait to see everyone back in the Spring.
Evan looking cute. And Evan and Coach Daddy!

10/29/10: Lauren won the coloring contest!

For the first time Evan and Lauren entered the coloring contest at Market Basket. See my earlier post of her and her brother with their colored pictures. It took them two days to color and they worked very hard. Well I can't believe it but Lauren won the $50 gift card to Toys R Us. Here she is with her card. Her picture is the one in the far upper left hand corner.
And the sign with her name!

10/28/10: Tales of the Night at Drumlin Farm

We went to Drumlin Farm again this year for Tales of the Night. It was lots of fun. Evan was scared last year by the hayride but was brave this year and did it again despite the screaming lady stuck in the spider web.
Here they are at the end of the Storybook characters path.
And checking out the pumpkins. This was Evan's favorite that said Drumlin Farm.

10/25-27/10: Halloween Fun

Well more Halloween activities. The kids colored these wonderful pictures for a competition at Market Basket. We will see if they win.
We went to a Halloween Magic show at the library. The kids liked it.

And here they are at another library doing a parade through the library. Daddy took Evan and Lauren because Mommy was at tap class. I think they all had a lot of fun. They had storytime and music and puppets. Here we were last year.
And here is Lauren and the crew at Neicy's Halloween Party today. It is so funny seeing Lauren as the oldest. Here was last year's party.
