essays on gay marriageThis Halloween was so much fun! This year we decided to go to our friend’s house (Aubrey + Cody) in town and help hand out candy in their neighborhood. Aubrey and I manned the porch and candy while we sent the dad’s off with the kiddos to trick or treat. The weather was absolutely perfect and the kids looked adorable in their costumes. The girls are at such fun ages right now and we couldn’t resist dressing up to a theme. Paisley is really into the Wizard of Oz right now and I think they made a perfect Dorothy + Glinda. Paisley’s costume is from Target which was fun that I found Toto in a basket. Scout’s crown is from this etsy shop, her dress for $12 from Amazon, and you might remember her wand from Paisley’s 3rd Birthday party. I love to re-purpose. It worked out perfect that Everest was going to be a lion too. The littles got to ride in the wagon while the big siblings ran from house to house for the candy. We ordered pizza in and had it delivered (I forget what a luxury that is since we live in the sticks lol) and enjoyed seeing all of the unique costumes and listening to the cute comments out of the mouths of babes. Aubrey and Cody are new to the neighborhood, one that is a big spot for trick or treaters on Halloween in our town. Aubrey loaded up on FULL SIZE candy bars to hand out and we got so tickled at the kids reactions when they realized they were getting a whole snickers or big sack of m&m’s in their bucket. If I had a $1 for every time I heard a kid yell “WOAH MOM! DAD! THEY GOT THE BIG CANDY!” or “THIS IS THE BEST HOUSE EVER!” Kids are funny. While Zack and Cody took the kids around for candy, Creed told one house “thank you for your candy but you need to mow your lawn.” Creed for the win. That kid is going places. The girls had so much fun playing with the boys and it was nice to just have a low key evening with my sweet friend and our families. I can’t wait to do this again next year! I’m always so sad when Halloween is over because fall is my favorite season and it seems like we immediately slip straight into Christmas. Not that I’m complaining much because we are Christmas fanatics but it seems like this season has gone so fast. I hope you all had a wonderful night with your kids!
Happy Halloween from our little kittens. The girls are off to school and I can’t wait to dress them up in their costumes tonight. We have a fun evening planned with our friends in their neighborhood and Paisley has been anticipating this night for weeks. Have a spooktacular day!
This weekend Zack and I took the girls for some fall fun. We drove up to OKC for the day and made our first stop at Myriad Botanical Gardens Pumpkinville. We’ve never been before and it was really neat. They had the entire thing was decorated in storybook theme, lots of things for kids to play and climb on, pumpkins to buy, trails to walk through, etc. Then we drove the girls to Moore to visit the Orr Family Farm. It was super busy because it was a weekend but a lot of neat things to keep the kids busy. I think it was Paisley’s favorite place of the entire trip and Scout enjoyed their chocolate chip cookies. It was a great weekend. Fall, could you just stay forever?
