Halloween 2017

Halloween really isn't my favorite holiday, so I can't say I'm sad to see it go. But, it was fun while it lasted and as always the boys had a blast. We enjoyed an awesome Halloween Party hosted by the best neighbors around, the Hansens. And just as last year, it was really fun.

 Tayden the swamp monster. 

Beckett the Army Guy

Kyle the ninja. 

And my personal favorite, Cache the tarantula. He begged and begged to be a big creepy spider, so I gave in and made his costume. He absolutely soaked up every minute in his costume. 

Taydens face paint started to wear off and he though it looked so cool. 

Donuts on a string. 

The party was great. We spent Halloween at preschool/school parties, parades around the school and of course trick or treating. It was windy and cold, but nothing the boys couldn't handle. On our way home a car came barreling around the corner almost hitting Scott and the boys. Scott chased them down and gave them a (very loud) piece of his mind. It ended up being a young teenage girl that was headed to see our neighbors up the street. Our neighbor came down and had a talk with Scott to see what had happened. Apparently the poor girl was just bawling. But Scott didn't back down and never apologized. Instead, told the neighbor that he hoped she learned her lesson. He is protective of his kids and I am glad that when he sees something wrong he isn't scared to confront it. 

All and all, it was a good Halloween. And as my friends Erin said now we can enjoy "these weeks of gratitude-centered calm after the chaos of Halloween and before we enter the magic and excitement of Christmas. Long live November"
