Emma Taylor's science class was having a Halloween party at school today, so she needed to take some treats to school. The girls decided they'd help and take some to their friends too. They loved making the treats and I love that they're old enough to do it themselves now. :)
My sweet girls!
They were pretty proud of their creations....very original!
The kids really don't seem to enjoy carving pumpkins anymore. They prefer painting pumpkins so much more and that's soooo much easier, so that's what we do. Actually that's what the girls prefer to do. Harrison didn't want to slow down from playing to paint with us and Lee was watching a football game, so he passed on our project too! I asked Harrison if he wanted to paint his pumpkin today too and got a big "NO." I guess it's just become a girl tradition!
We started with such pretty pumpkins. It was almost a shame to paint them!
We have Harry Potter, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle and a sprinkled donut.
We had a beautiful, HOT day for Race for the Cure. We sold tons of hamburger and hotdog plates, plenty of candy and nachos along with all the race entrance fees, so I'm sure GMS raised lots of money for Breast Cancer research. :)
Here are my girls in the hall before all the festivities got started.
The girls had a ball. Sarah finished the 1.5 Mile run and Emma Taylor came in second in the Pink Out Contest. They loved the day!
Pinkest of the Pink
The girls said the mechanical bull wasn't as easy as it looked. It sure was fun to try though. They thoroughly enjoyed their first Race for the Cure at GMS!
