Just a little fall fun

So last Friday, (yes, I've been a little behind on blogging lately)
 my sister B invited the babies and I over to her house for a fun-filled play date! 
She had several wonderful fall crafts planned, and just as soon as we got to her house, 
the kids went to work!
Making Silly Spiders...
As Sophie worked, 
she serenaded us all with her own version of "The Itsy Bitsy Spider"!
It was pure SWEETNESS!!
A tissue paper candy corn craft also added some more sweetness to our fun fall play date!
Al and Hud work hard to complete the project;)
Three budding artists show off their sweet masterpieces!
L-O-V-E!!
After a great day at B's, we decided to continue with a little more FALL fun after we got home.
Every year our neighborhood participates in the "BOO" game! This is such a fun way to kick off the  FALL season and my kids look forward to it every year!
On Friday evening, we decided it was time to get the game going again this year! We picked two of our unsuspecting neighbors and surprised them by leaving a BOO treat for them on their front porch!
When darkness fell, the kids got ready to go! 
They quickly set the buckets by our neighbors front door, rang the door bell, and then hightailed it home as fast as they could,  hoping they wouldn't be found out by our surprised neighbors!
I just loved watching their faces as they "rang and ran"! 
Such a fun way to spread some Halloween cheer!

Those are great crafts! I love the candy corn one, and may try it with Asher!
THe boo bucket? Too cute! I wish we lived in a neighborhood to do that!

LOVE that you started the Booing! Our kids keep asking, but we really don't live in a neighborhood, so I don't know how we would do it...but I guess we could figure out a way! Love your Boo bucket!!
