This year, West Fest included many carnival-type games, including bobbing for apples (in the sink), eating-donut-off-string races (from the ceiling fan, no less), a cake walk, pumpkin painting, and a viewing of Hocus Pocus - a Halloween classic.
We had a great time, and are grateful for everyone who came. Sorry we had to cram you all in to such a tight space, but we appreciate your good humor about it. We are hoping next year to kick the Halloween season off early and just do the whole thing outdoors in early October while it's still warm. We'll see how it goes.
Anyway, here are some photos from the event:

The kids were awesome sports about bobbing for apples in the sink.
It was so much fun to watch them be so excited.
Isaac had his own method of bobbing.
"Hmm," he thinks. "Which one do I want?"
"I'll have this one thanks!"
The whole family: Casey Jones, April O'Neil, and Leo. Now we just need three more kids!
Once again, the kids were awesome sports - Danika was even willing to try to eat the donut while it was tied to the ceiling fan (yes, it was turned on!).
Take 2, with the donuts tied to Rick's wizard staff.
Isaac thinking, "Hey! Where's my donut?"
All in all, much fun was had, and we're hoping to do it again next year!
