Happy Halloween


I know what you're thinking -- wasn't Nate supposed to be Thomas the Train? And wasn't Sadie a fairy? I guess they took a page from their sister because Nate woke up this morning and wanted to be a cowboy. Jill offered me her Sadie's baby Halloween costume and it was too cute for me not to let my Sadie wear, so she also had a last minute wardrobe change. Dustin is the best husband in the world because he didn't even say a word about it. He even put my Grandpa's belt buckle on Nate's costume to make it more authentic. Luckily we had all the other fixin's for a cowboy from my Aunt Kristine! Thanks Beaney!


We decided to stay in the neighborhood this year and I'm so glad we did, even if it meant we had to buy candy this year. A little girl and her grandma threw a little pre-trick-or-treating party for the kids in the neighborhood and then we headed out. Ellie ran off with the big kids while Sadie and I hung back with Nate and the younger ones. Casey's little Bailey was so cute because she would get so excited every time she got candy and would shout, "I LOVE Halloween." Nate held onto his pumpkin for dear life and wouldn't even let me hold it when it got heavy.

Our neighborhood was PERFECT because it's only 2 streets, so we managed to get it all done in an hour, the weather was gorgeous and the neighbors were so generous. My kids came home with loaded pumpkins. I don't even need to separate the junk and hide the good stuff for myself because every single neighbor gave out good stuff. I think we were the chintzy ones with our mini-recess PB cups.

Sadie was really mad that she didn't get any candy, so she attacked the bowl. Luckily we managed to get rid of all of it soon after. YEAY! No left overs. I hope everyone's Halloween was as fun as ours.

The kids look so cute! Carter woke up yesterday BEGGING to be Spiderman or Batman. I was mean and didn't let him. He wears those everyday for dress up and by golly he was going to mind and wear what I had planned! Plus his bag matched his costume and I had to have them match! :)

I'm so glad you left a comment on our blog, I totally forgot, you guys had a blog, so I looked it up. I'll have to have Ryan add your link for me. Ya, I was totally shocked and sad with your delivery news, I was just like you, 4 and 5 weeks early with the first I know I won't go into labor forever, I think I will try to get induced, we'll see what my doctor says at my next appointment.
your kids look so adorable. it's so funny to see them trick-or-treating in shorts and short sleeve shirts. I'm jealous. I hope you had a good Halloween. Katie
