All Things Halloween

I never really loved Halloween...until I had kids.  It's now up there with one of my favorite holidays.  I love seeing them in their cute little Halloween jammies and ADORABLE costumes.  They had a blast trick-or-treating.  It was seriously the cutest thing.  Hearing them say "twick or tweet" was my fav.  Their little faces lit up in excitement as each house kept giving them more and more candy.  They couldn't believe it.  It was so funny watching them go to the first couple houses.  They would go up and knock on the door.  If the person was taking too long, they'd just turn the knob and walk right in.  Trey didn't really get it this year.  As soon as the door opened he'd crawl in the house and act like he owned the place.  Too funny!
Had to get a pumpkin butt picture this year. Obviously.



 Our 2nd annual adult Halloween party.  My friends Jill and Angie host the most amazing party.  This year definitely did not disappoint.  The decorations, food, costumes, and company was on point.  So much fun!

The kids would not stop starring at my face.  They were like, "What the heck?"
2nd place - Oompa Loompas.
 1st place - Jane Fonda and Richard Simmons. 
 Some of the girls. 
 Oompa Loompa Doompadee Doo. 
Let me start off by saying I am one of the least creative people ever.  I usually just steal other peoples ideas and make them into my own.  I was debating what my family should be for Halloween this year.  I was searching Pinterest and nothing really stood out to me.  Then one day I looked down at Trey and for some reason he looked like a little Oompa Loompa haha.  I was going to do the whole Willy Wonka theme but then just decided to do all Oompa Loompa's.  I couldn't have pulled it off without my mom.  She helped me SO much with all the costumes - sewing for hours!  They turned out pretty dang cute.

My parents came into town for the weekend.  We always LOVE having them with us.

 Cutest little stinks.

Trey bolts in the door as soon as it opens haha.


October was such a fun month.  All things Halloween, hanging out with friends, and taking the littles trick-or-treating (by far my favorite).  The weather has started to cool down to perfect temperatures here.  We love going for bike rides around the neighborhood or to the park.  Cruz and Kash have mastered their little scooters.  They have gotten so good at steering and pedaling their little legs as fast as they'll go.  It's so cute.  
All three boys got sick this past month.  It started out with Cruz.  He got this weird eye infection which of course passed to Kash and Trey.  Somehow Julie was immune to it.  They all had to be on these eyedrops.  It spread to Trey's ears and he got his first ear infection (first one ever in our family). Poor guy!  I thought he was just teething or something because he was randomly waking up in the middle of the night (which is so unlike him).  The eye infections weren't totally going away so I took them back in and the Dr. found Trey's ear infection.  They all had to go on an antibiotic to finally get rid of everything.  They were all surprisingly pretty happy through it all. 
Kash is still obsessed with Julie's Elsa doll.  Too funny.
