I think we set a new record on candy collected this Halloween....with an outdoor homeschool Halloween party, our church's trunk or treat, and making the rounds in our neighborhood, we are SET on candy! :-)

Kiddos before the homeschool Halloween Party.....Bo Peep, a "stinky sock", and a Jelly Fish....

Kiddos with their cousins at our church's Trunk or Treat!

Everyone picked a theme for their "trunk" for trunk or treat and had to dress up with their theme.  The Tommerdahl Trunk was a Christmas theme (Summer's idea) complete with a decorated tree, wrapped presents, a fireplace (borrowed from Pastor Paul's office), stockings, and us dressed up as the Claus's (thanks to our church's costume supply).   Grandma and Grandpa walked around with the kids to participate in the fun while Paul and I enjoyed saying Ho Ho Ho and Merry Christmas to the kiddos that came to get treats at our our trunk.....;)

Trick or Treating the neighborhood.


Mr. Ken (our neighbor) always spoils the kids with candy on holidays, and this Halloween was no exception :).  He got a family picture of us when we stopped over, and also one of the kids and him.

School Pictures

 Because we are homeschooling this year, I took the kids to JC Penney's for school pictures...

Celebrating Grandma T and Trip to Fergus Falls!

We went to Fergus Falls for the weekend to celebrate Grandma T's birthday!  While there we had so much fun sledding, hunting pheasants, eating, playing, carving pumpkins, and more!

The drive is SO easy now with 3 voracious readers!  Love this!

Grandpa and the kids made Grandma's breakfast in bed :)

Grandma and Grandpa gave me a gorgeous blanket and candle for my bday, and we gave her a sour dough starter and crock along with a Grandma apron with the kiddos' handprints.

The kiddos LOVE the dogs!  Cute pics of them cuddling...

Colton and I both "walked" along and enjoyed seeing the boys and the dogs work!  The girls and grandma had a blast sledding!

Happy Birthday Grandma!  We love you!
