Happy Halloween!!!

Our family had a great time celebrating our 1st Halloween as a family of 6! This year was quite a bit different than previous years festivities. In the past 2-3 years the girls have been able to dress up in a themed trio. Examples are 3 blind mice and 3 little pigs- so cute! This year there wasn't a big focus on that especially since JT isn't really into getting dressed up. What ended up as the final product was JT was a little Tigger, Courtney decided on a Hippie, and Sarah and Lindsay did a duo of Thing 1 and Thing 2 from "The Cat in the Hat".

For activities we did again a variety of things. The weather forecast was looking pretty grim with a chance of rain and cool temps for Halloween. We saw that a local big church was doing a fall festival on Friday evening inside and we decided to go to that in case Saturday was a bust with weather. The kids all had fun with tons of inflatables, games, face painting, and candy. Then on Saturday, though it was soggy from earlier rain, it was clear! We started off going to Moss Wright park and walked this walking path that local businesses and churches decorate with themed tables and pass out candy. We met up with some close friends of Sarah and Lindsay there and walked the path together. Afterward, we dropped off the girls at their friends house and they went trick or treating in the neighborhood.

John and I decided to come home with JT because for some reason, he had only napped for about 2 hours during the whole day and he was one grumpy Tigger! It was quite cool out and those two things mixed together don't make for a pleasant experience for parents or kids. It felt so odd being back at the house before 8 and with only the baby. Though JT was sure happy to get into cozy PJ's and zonk out! The girls came home a few hours later with a ton of loot! They did get a few non-candy items that were a little odd: chap stick, mini quirt gun, a mountain camping style clip/key chain, and microwave popcorn. I hope this candy gone quickly and not in my tummy!!!
