Halloween Fun

Here's a roundup of our Halloween festivities. Some of these are from my phone so sorry for the poor quality. Here is Cam in his penguin outfit with his light saber!
He also had day glo reflective pumpkin stickers. We had to put them on the middle of his back so he couldn't get to them!
My only picture of Cam trick or treating... he went up to every window and peered in! our little Peeping Tom! He also walked right in the first house we went to!
Cam was a little shy at first (other than the peeking tom thing) but he really warmed up to trick or treating! the first few houses he marched right in! After that we corralled him by the door, but he didn't want the candy. I followed behind him and picked up his candy from the lawn where he drop it. Before too long, he decided he wanted to keep all the candy. We had two different candy buckets so I tried to switch them out because his so heavy he kept falling over but he wasn't having it! He wanted that candy!
This was in Party City one day. It was the first time I told him to say "Cheese" and he did!
Cracker decided to dress up for Halloween, too!
We did a craft one night. I found this cute shirt in this post on Dollar Store Crafts, but it originally came from this post on Handprint & Footprint Art. If you like crafts, I highly recommend both of these sites. Camden really enjoyed the project and was so good about letting me paint his feet and hands!
The funniest part was when I was doing his finger prints for the eyes and mouth. I kept saying "Dot, dot, dot. Perfect!" Then he started saying it, too! Perfect is one of his favorite words now.
We made a cards for the Grammy & Nana. I did it upside down, though! Then Camden was very attached to it and carried it around everywhere, including to the trunk or treat at Willowbrook.
Here's the pumpkins we carved. We used patterns. Makes it so much easier! I did this bat pumpkin.
Brad did the face pumpkin.
I also did this cat pumpkin.
I convinced Brad to paint an Elmo pumpkin for Camden. Brad did such a good job and Camden loved it!
Here's all four of our carved pumpkins. Brad did the alien one, too.

Camden wore his Elmo jacket to preschool. He was so proud!
Another shot in the car. What a cutie pie!
And our finished t-shirt. Camden loved it! I did, too.

We are going to make a Thanksgiving turkey shirt this weekend. I'll try to get the pictures up before Christmas! Ha!
