Halloween Costume Party

I have been wanting to have a kids Halloween party forever, but it has just never worked out until this year. We had originally planned on having a bonfire/weenie roast because I had assumed it would be typical chilly fall weather. Of course it was unseasonable warm at about 75 so we nixed the bonfire and just cooked the hot dogs on the grill. I guess I should just be happy it wasn't raining which would of resulted in the party being moved inside.

We basically grilled out and I made some festive treats. Along with getting cupcakes from Sugar Mamas and having our cookie lady make us some matching cookies. The kids decorated pumpkin magnets and then we played two little games.


Love our Cookie lady!!!


Our cupcakes!!

Apple punch with an ice hand. 

Candy corn fruit cups and jello pumpkins. 


Goodie buckets with glow sticks, tattoos, skull erasers, and mini play-doh.

Carson-23 Months


Girlfriend is hilarious. Hendrix is constantly trying to give her hugs and kisses and she is having none of it. She gets not wanting to be touched from me. I always hated when people were trying to love on me when I was younger. I tolerate it now.

Carson has a new found love for yogurt and homemade applesauce. She is adding new words every day to her vocabulary. Some recent additions are "Stop" "Mommy's Busy" and "Why?". Hendrix didn't start constantly asking us "why?" until well after 2 so it's been interesting.

She got her hair trimmed up this past week. She had a few longer pieces and some scraggly ends so we had about a 1/2 inch trimmed off.

Here are some pictures from the past month:




Trick or treating at the park!!

The kids love the our new porch swing.
