This is Halloween

Nov 1, 2013
Who doesn't love Halloween!?!

One of my favorite parts this year was getting to do Macey's class Halloween Party.  It was so fun meeting all her friends and getting to observe Macey in the school environment.  I learned she talks just as much at school as she does at home.   I didn't take any pictures of course, but the kids had a blast and luckily Holly came and helped me out since none of the other parents could.  Sometimes I don't know what I'd do without Holly. :)

We did our 2nd annual Neighborhood Carnival and it of course was a blast.  We probably doubled the amount of kids from last year, which luckily made it more fun instead of more crazy.


Paul's work had Trick or Treating and Macey happily skipped the Halloween Parade so we could go.  Domo's Trick or Treating far surpassed all other office Trick or Treating we have attended.  The Candy Bar kind of sealed the deal for me, though.  Pretty sure this was M&M's favorite part of the Holiday.  


Even though the kids had plenty of candy from Trick or Treating at Paul's office, we still of course had to go out into the neighborhood and do a handful of houses.  I love seeing all the neighbor kids dressed up and visiting with everyone.  Yes, we love where we live.  And Paul was much more helpful this year as the Tic Tock Crock than he was last year as the man in the gorilla's cage.

And no, I am not one of those mean moms who gives their kids Halloween candy away!  We've all been enjoying their large haul this year.  




Sad it's over, but for some reason this year I am very happy that October is behind us and it's finally November.

Again another year of great costumes! Paul's work is amazing - he's right he wins. Love Crew sitting there eating candy and enjoying a bottle at the same time. Glad you had a fun October.

Some, ok lots of, October Happenings...

Oct 25, 2012
October is always one of my favorite months and this year has yet to disappoint.

Our bff's came for a visit.


Macey and I have been doing lots of crafts. My desire to do projects is proof that I am beginning to feel more like myself and less like a crazy person 24/7.

Featured Projects: butterfly wand, buzz lightyear costume, and Littlest Petshop Mats.

I also decided that our neighborhood needed to do a Halloween Carnival. So, I sent out an email and made a flyer asking that everyone bring a treat and do a booth. Easiest party to plan ever.

Lots of Spooky Treats.


I of course had to include a guessing jar, what's a carnival without one? And the adorable winner.


Everyone's booths were so fun and creative.

There was face painting.


Airbrush Tattoos.


Crafts.


A Haunted House.

and lots of fun games.


Love these moms.

We also had our 6th annual Fright Fest, one of my favorite October happenings.

To spice things up we played a new game called, "Catch Cheetos in Shaving Cream". I thought it was a hit.


Our Masterpieces, of course.


In other news, Crew has graduated to using the Exersaucer. It's a hit all around.

And Miles is still making everything into a gun. Raff, green beans, cups, wands...you name it, it's a gun.


Less than a week to Halloween!

Fun! Your comment about Miles making everything into a gun reminds me of CJ when he was little.

Yay for October and Fright Fest and carnivals and crafts! Now if we could just prevent winter from happening...
Nana
You're right Brianne just like Christopher. I love the catching Cheetos.

I love the pet shop mats and the cheeto catching. Awesome! Also, I am impressed with your neighborhood party. Good work!
