October is a fun month! I think Halloween is Micah’s favorite holiday/time of the year. This kid loves pumpkins and pumpkin patches, costumes, festivals with games and prizes, and trick-or-treating. We don’t dress the kids up in scary costumes and most of our decorations are Fall related, but it’s a fun time and I find myself enjoying the season as well.
School Pumpkin Patch – Micah’s school set up a cute, little pumpkin patch for the Kindergarten classes last week. They had haystacks, cornstalks, a happy scarecrow and pumpkins. For $2.75, the kids got to choose their own pumpkin to decorate and take home. What a deal! And these weren’t little, itty-bitty pumpkins…they were pretty good-sized pumpkins.
Creekside Candy Company – On Friday, our church had their annual “Candy Company” community carnival. There were games and prizes, cookie decorating, tattoos, and a life-sized version of Candyland for the kids to play.

School Fall Festival – On Saturday, we went to the Fall Festival at Micah’s school. There were games, snacks, a costume contest, crafts, plant your own fava bean, etc. More Fall Festival photos.
We have a few more Fall/Halloween related events coming up…Kindergarten parade and class parties, Trick-or-Treating at CV Village and Harvest Festival.
What are your plans for Halloween?
