Halloween 2017

We had lots of fun opportunities to dress up this year around Halloween.
We started at the Compass Fall Carnival which is always a favorite. We met up at Pops and Grams and walked over to the fun.

This year, Kinley was Belle from the village...not to be confused with the princess Belle.

 We threw in a crazy hair day at school sometime later that week.

On Halloween morning, Kinley and Ty got to dress up and walk in the "Book Character" parade at school. Kinley had checked out and read a book about Belle - from the village- pre-The Beast, that worked perfect.

Ty switched it up and was Batman and forgot to carry HIS BOOK.

Started Halloween evening by trick-or-treating at Honey's house.

This year was the first time we actually did Trick-or-Treating in our neighborhood. One of the neighbors decked out a trailer and offered to drive all the neighborhood kids around.
 We were pretty passionate about taking part in this since we really want to invest in our neighborhood but, it was our first time not to trick or treat with playgroup and we really did miss it.

I just couldn't let the night go without being in costume so I happened to have a checkered flag dress in my closet that I threw on with Dylan's car racing hat and it was fun matching my littlest man.

It was so fun to walk our beautiful tree-lined streets with Minnie, Alex, Cannon and our sweet neighbor friends.
 Even Pops and Gram joined along.
 It had been pouring rain for a couple days and all day on Halloween but for the evening it cleared out and was a great night!

We ended the night with a sugar high dumping out all our candy and chowing down.

Happy Halloween
The morning after Halloween Ben and I "Jimmy Kimmel-ed" our kids and told them we ate all their Halloween candy. Their reaction was priceless and I never want to forget it. Not our finest parenting moment. But dang funny. And they were totally fine one minute later.

A few October celebrations

We celebrated a few fun things at the beginning of October. 

 First and foremost, Uncle Matt Matt got baptized in Honey & Boss' pool and he asked Ben to baptize him. It was such a fun family dinner night and a great night for the hot tub...since the pool was chilly! Such a special thing for Ben to be a part of for Matt.

We celebrated Anson's 3rd birthday at the Dallas Zoo. 
 Ty had a soccer game so he and Ben had to miss out. But, I had Cannon with me that day and he loved going through the zoo with us.
