We had a great Halloween! We ditched all of our other commitments and just took the kids trick-or-treating around our nice little neighborhood. That turned out to be a nice relaxing and fun walk, which was just what we (well, I) needed. That is what we will be doing from this year on. (Famous last words.)
Drew was supposed to be a story book character for his school Halloween party, so I tried to be as resourceful as possible in the little time I had to plan, and made him a Max costume (from Where the Wild Things Are.) Uh… my costume-making abilities need some serious help, but oh well. The kids at school kept telling him he was a bunny. Kids are so mean these days! 😉
Drew had originally planned to be Spiderman, and I should’ve just let him go as that- it would have saved me a lot of trouble. But I have this obsession with following the “rules.” I need to get over it. Beau is Optimus Prime, and here they are striking a pose in the front yard.
I caved and bought Selah a Fairy outfit, thinking she’ll probably have fun with this for ages to come. Well, maybe not ages, but a couple of years at least. She had a lot of fun running free around the front yard, her wings fluttering behind her. She was called an angel and a butterfly a few times throughout the night. Both work. 😉
Saturday we decided to have a dance party in celebration of my mom getting a good MRI report. We went out to eat, and then headed back to our house, where my hubby’s band, Hail the Sound, played a show for us. Then we turned on some good dance tunes (thank you, Pandora) and had a good ol’ time. We decided we need to have dance parties more often at our house.
Sunday we had a Fall photo shoot in Kev’s grandparent’s beautiful yard. They have a ton of leaves, so they lent themselves well to our purposes.
As always… if you wish to see more of our weekend, click on one of the photos and it’ll take you right over to my Flickr page where more photos await you.
