Duck Duck

Friday night we went to our Connection Group Fall Fellowship. We had our annual pumpkin carving contest. There seemed to be a pumpkin shortage around here so only 5 couples carved pumpkins. It was still a lot of fun though!
Here are most of our Connection Group girls.
Cody, me, Katie and Jason

We carved the ;) wink. Cody seriously did not get it. When we left he asked me again, "why did we carve a sideways smiley face?" He doesn't do too much on the computer. ;) He had never heard of this.

On Saturday night I met Jason, Katie and Zach up at the mall for Malloween. Elizabeth (or "Bella" as Zach calls her) met us up there too. The kids could trick or treat at most of the stores. Zach loved his "duck duck" costume!

He has always loved ducks and every bird or duck is a "duck duck!" He gets so excited seeing one. Back in the spring and summer when I had all my bird decorations out he would run to every single one and point at it and yell, "duck duck!" It was so cute.

He loved getting all the candy too. Especially these suckers. He was showing them to me in the picture. I just love hanging out with this little guy!
