Fall Fest '08

In keeping with tradition, our kids enjoyed Fall Fest at our church on Halloween. This year I had a lot more responsibility with Fall Fest due to my job, so the kids and I got there at 9 AM and were there the whole day. One of the perks of that for the kids is they get to christen the jump houses all by them selves, as soon as they get delivered.

The kids got dressed in their costumes at church right before the event started. It was pretty fun having all the staff kids get ready together in our makeshift "salon". Isaiah, on the other hand, was less than thrilled to be stuffed into a frog costume, but he put up with it. It was pretty hilarious watching the expressions on his face. His thoughts pretty much read "I can't believe you are making me stand here in this thing" but he never cried or tried to take it off. In the pictures (below) you can see the progression where he started to warm up to it.

Emma was a princess, and she looked beautiful. Noah wore the pumpkin that Isaiah wore last year, and it's pretty much a toss-up as to who makes the cutest pumpkin. And yes, Biniam went as John Wayne. It wasn't obvious who Biniam was, but he did make a nice looking cowboy.

(Lots of pictures of Isaiah coming, but I can't help but crack up when I see them!)

Great pictures Shana. All your kids are so adorable. (Beniam isn't too old for "adorable" is he? :) ) I love it that he wanted to Be John Wayne.
