|Ward trunk or treat at the Ballard church. We gave out pixie stix and our scarecrow looked extra scary laying severed behind our van.|
This year's "Lunch with a Witch" was at Stewart's Marketplace and they served chili or cheesy-broccoli soup with rolls and rootbeer. There was trick or treating around the store at different stations where you could play little games or get your face painted. They turned the meat department into a haunted hallway! At the end, you get to take a picture with the witch, if you want.
|Amara with the Witch|
At the beginning of the month, we decided to make a scarecrow out of old clothes and stuff him with weeds. His head was stuffed with plastic garbage sacks and a wire hanger held the round shape, then we put burlap over the top and glued on some googly eyes and drew on a nose and mouth with marker. He was our fall decoration and we eventually added a bunch of pumpkins from our garden to go all around him.

Homeschool Field Trip: Lapoint Corn Maze
This cornmaze is new- this is their second year. We went with a bunch of homeschoolers, many of which are from our ward. It was fun and a nice day. We packed a lunch and had fun doing all the little activities. My favorite is the hayride to the pumpkin patch. I'm so glad my mom got to join us for this trip! She recently quit her job at clinic to pursue opening her own business and finishing her websites.
