Happy Halloween!

What a fabulous weekend....
It all started with a celebration of Uma's birthday. Ethan announced what all of the presents were before she opened them - so sweet......
Saturday morning was pumpkin cleaning time. Upa is the best! My mom and I roasted the seeds- yum!
Then Brian and Ethan did the carving.
The finished product was awesome! "Jackolen!"
Lucas loved playing peek a boo with Upa.
Uma and Ethan made tootsie pop ghosts to hand out. So much fun!
Then we got dressed up - Bob the Builder....
And the Lion!...
We headed to a local long-term care facility that was doing trick or treating and the boys were charming. Well, Ethan was. Lucas got freaked out by a mask and hid... But he sure did love the chocolate he got.
For dinner? Jello hands, brains, and a snakewich. Delicious!
Brian got home and off to trick or treat at the McConnels and other neighbors. The boys were great!
Lucas loved looking in his bag.
Ethan played cruise director, telling us which way to go. At the end, we were all exhausted, but loved it.
Today we headed to the zoo, where Upa and Ethan serenaded us in Africa.

Lucas made friends with some penguins...
And Ethan used his tongue to clean this penguin (gross, I know).

This tiger was the perfect size for my tiger.

Then Uma and Upa took Ethan to buy a big boy bike! We can't take it home until tomorrow and Ethan is super excited. We had lunch, took long naps and played together tonight. We're so sad to see them go, but so grateful for the fun we had!
Now it's back to a new workweek.... Not sure I'm ready for that!
