Parades, Pumpkins and Football Players! Oh My!

This week has brought about lots of fun Autumn activities. Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure!

Gavin's school had a costume parade. I was told to dress Gavin up for this activity, but I was told 3 weeks ago and since Gavin was out sick for about a 1 1/2 weeks, I forgot about the parade. Luckily, I happened to put Gavin in his Superman t-shirt that day, so it looked like I had dressed him up a little bit anyway!

This is what Gavin thought about the parade idea at first!

Then he decided to give it a try.

Here is part of Gavin's class lined up for the parade.

Here he is with his class and teacher.

Here he is being pushed down the hall as part of the parade. They sang songs and played instruments.

Gavin's teacher made these hats for the children to wear. Gavin kept looking up at his wondering, "What in the world is on my head?!"

Gavin's class and a couple of his VERY PATIENT helpers! I told them that they had the patience of a saint, after watching them take care of the children during the parade!

I think that Gavin actually ended up enjoying himself!

Here is Gavin watching his brothers carve a pumpkin. He had the directions and was trying to tell them what to do. Of course, his brothers don't listen very well, so they just did their own thing!

Here are the brothers hard at work on the pumpkin.

We roasted the pumpkin seeds too!

Here is our finished project. We only did one pumpkin...this was enough mess for this Momma!

Here is Gavin dressed up as a football player.

"What have they put on my head again?!!"

"O.K., that's enough pictures Mom!"

Here is big brother Caleb dressed up as a football player as well!

He really likes to get into the part!

My 2 little quarterbacks!

Lots of fun and craziness at our house as usual!

Have a great weekend!!!

How fun!! My peanut hates things on her head also. She refused to wear the hat portion of her costume this year too.

The photos are great. Did you make his football costume? It's awesome!
