What a busy day!!! A couple of other Moms and I decided to put on a Fall Festival at Stevens School today. It was a huge success! We were all so glad to see the kids having fun. I am blessed to have two Teachers who share their students with me. We set up four stations......Pumpkin Painting, Sticker Fun, Playdoh, and Fall Cookie Decorating.

Little Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkin Painting

We rotated the 40 kids between each station. Then George brought up pizza and all the kids had lunch in the classroom. I was surprised at how much Parent participation we had. Over 20 parents sent in goodies for the treat bags, and 8 moms came in to help. It was great fun. I brought in hay bales and set them up with a scarecrow and all 40 pumpkins to make a small pumpkin patch. Each child chose his/her own pumpkin out of the patch and then they painted them. (Thanks to my friend Heather for giving me the idea) The day was flawless.

Around 1pm I left Stevens school for Amanda Lily's preschool. They had a small class party with treats and then trick or treated around the school. It was low key, but fun for everyone.

Pete and Heather brought Sophie by for a photo opp of the cousins. I was so glad that they did. I'm amazed at how much Steven and Sophia look alike! Every time I see her, it takes me back to when Steven was her age. She is such a sweet girl. I am waiting for photos from Heather to post. Pete took some good ones.

To finish the night off, Pam came over with Caleb and Druw for Trick or Treating. The kids had a great time. We even went over to the church festival for a Hayride. Lastly, we headed up to the restaurant to have dinner with George. It was his shift this Halloween, so I wanted him to see the kids in their costumes. Wheeeeeew. What a day. I hit the pillow pretty hard.

Putting on fall festivals is a lot of work, huh? I did one at my work and I am so glad it's over!! It does make it worthwhile when you see everyone having a good time. I'm glad it all turned out well for you.
