Finally Halloween!!

Oh Man, the cutest kids in the world!! 
One Halloween tradition we have is to make Chili.  Jeremy makes his famous chili and it is soooo good!  Friends stop by to get a taste of it.  It for sure didn't disappoint tonight!  We had our friends Tiff and Devan and their kids over too.  Halloween isn't the same for me unless we are with friends.  It was a really fun night and the kids had fun gathering their candies. 
Love this little boy Gaige!  By the end of the night his costume was stripped and he had no shoes on.  He didn't bother to carry a bag for his candy cause he just ate it as it came along!  HA!!
My friend Tiff and little bunny.  It is so fun to be around them!

Cash and Cohen.  Such cuties!!!

Tiff brought the magic potion for the kids to drink.  Super cute fun idea.  It was a big hit!

My little monkey just leaned to sit up!!  He really digs it.  He also pretty much digs the candy too. 

The ONLY 2 girls in the bunch.  Bodie and Olivia.  And of course Livvy wanted Bodie to herself, but who can blame her.  This little beauty NEVER stops smiling.  She is just like Livvy when she was little. 

Preschool Letter J

For Preschool, I was in charge of Halloween week.  (We rotate between the Moms for preschool.)  I sure love these kids.  From left to right:  Trace, Olivia, Dodger, Kessia, Coy, Gaige, and Carson.  Kessie and Coy are BFFs.  They are so cute together.  They hold hands and definitely have to sit by each other for everything.  I LOVE it! 
We painted "J"ack O'Lanterns and went trick-or-treating to the neighbors. We read the book "The Witch Who Was Afraid Of Witches."  It was fun!

Oh man!  I sure do love these little faces!!!!

Pumpkin Carving

It was a big mistake to wait until the Monday before Halloween to get a pumpkin.  I sent Jeremy to the store to get a pumpkin and he said there was 2 left and you can only imagine what they looked like.  So I called my friend Tiff to the rescue.  She let us have a pumpkin.  It was a GOOD pumpkin and the kids each designed a part of its face since we only had one.  Olivia was not to thrilled, but secretly I was.  It's kinda gross.  Cohen thought so too.  He is a funny guy and gets grossed out a lot!!  He even wore a pair of J's cooking gloves and only put his hand in the pumpkin once before I thought he was going to vomit.  HA HA!  You win some, you lose some!  So Livvy was happy to do the "dirty" deed.  Mason was a champ and enjoyed the entertainment.

School Halloween Parade

I rushed, rushed, rushed to be on time for the kids' Halloween parade. I forget that it's Blanding and I didn't need to rush so bad!  I love to see them march around the school to show off their costumes.  LOVE my little Darth and my beauty leopard. 

Averie was Cleopatra!  She looked beautiful!

Halloween Party + Scout Bday!

There were no stops on this Halloween/Birthday Party for Scout! It was so much fun and hard to resist coming so it didn't take much convincing to get Stacy to come up with me.  We borrowed a couple of costumes from Brandalyn.  I was a vampire (sorta) and Stacy was a witch (minus the hat).  Noelle was one of the Avengers.  One of the rotations Noelle had going was this photo wall.  She thinks of everything! 

Coy the Dino loved the painting pumpkin rotation.  He sat there forever till his pumpkin was completely covered in every color they had.  Took a LONG time to dry!!
The birthday girl and her mama!!
The basement was turned into a haunted house!  It was so awesome that Cohen and Coy opted out!
Livvy was a leopard and Addi was a cave girl.  They looked a lot the same! Cute girls!!
Mason my little adorable snuggly monkey! He was content watching everyone wide-eyed!
A face painter came.  She did an awesome job. 
Maxon the Hulk!

All the amazing goodies that Noelle made.  I could not stop eating the muddy buddies!

During the party where do we find Livvy??  Of course, with our newest cousin Arianna.  Beautiful.

Cohen was Darth Vader.  He wouldn't wear his helmet because I had spiked his hair.  Apparently it hurt to wear it.  So I wasn't supposed to do his hair on Halloween. :)
It was so fun to be a part of Noelle's Party.  She is such a fun Aunt and I love her to pieces!  Happy Birthday Scout!

Sneaky Coy

This little monster loves to pull the chair over and eat my "decoration" candy.  He thinks I don't know but sliding the chair over the floor is pretty loud.  Love this sneaky guy!!!

I What???

Cohen came home from school very proud of the Frankenstein art project he made.  He told me he wanted to color his hair yellow because it looked like mine.  Laughing I asked him if he thought my hair looked like that.  Cohen was quite sure of himself and said yes.  He said, " yes, it is squiggly like that."   And with that, he walked away and I was left staring at this face....
