Trick or Treating

Trick or treating for William was a complete success!! It took him a little while to warm up but once he realized he got candy out of the deal, he was all over it. We were walking up to one house and I looked down to see an entire Reeses peanut butter cup stuffed in his mouth! I was the child who would save candy for weeks, nibbling here and there, savoring every last bite. Not William! His motto...git er done! So in the midst of his sugar high, I was somehow able to sneak those Mickey ears on his head and, y'all, he kept them on for at least 10 minutes! People, we had a mini Mickey Mouse on our hands!! :) And, of course, while the ears were on, we got a few comments about how cute "she" looked! Are you kidding me??!! Mickey is the boy...Minnie is the girl... a dress or bow was not involved in this costume! Anyway, you know who [the hubs], did not like those comments one bit so he took the ears off. Bummer, back to answering questions like... "Now, what are you dressed up as tonight?"

Our attempt at getting him to wear the ears...before the sugar high.

Wearing his ears!!! :) Woo Hoo!!!!!!!

I want CANDY!!!

I got CANDY!!!

I didn't know how the night would end with all that sugar in him but he slept great!

Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Fall, Y'all...the Party Pics!

I have not been doing a great job taking pictures lately. With that being said, I don't have very many party pics from the Happy Fall party yesterday. :( Although it is poorly documented, there were lots of laughs, good eats, bounce house jumping, pumpkin decorating, pumpkin tossing...overall, a fantastic celebration of my favorite season!

Rebecca came over for the fun.

William trying to sit on a basketball... how long do you think that lasted?? :)

The pumpkin decorating table... the older kids loved it! That made me happy! :)

The sweetest strawberry with her decorated pumpkin.

A few of the little guests.

Once our faces were covered with icing and the meltdowns started, it was time to say goodbye!
Happy Fall Party, we had fun! See you next year! :)

Happy Fall, Y'all!

Ever since I opened my ETSY shop, I get to design all kinds of cute printables for my clients, something I LOVE. But sometimes you just gotta have a party to actually get to use your printables! :) So I decided it was time for a Happy Fall party.

Here is what I like to call the "pretty" party... The party I had by myself with my camera before all the little guests arrived.

We had everything from a spider webbed 7 layer dip to witch hat cookies. I'm so sad I didn't take a picture of either of these items! BOO! :( But the weather was absolutely perfect and we got to chase our kids around the backyard for a few hours! :) We had a blast!! Thanks, girls, for coming over!!! Oh, and in true William fashion, he decided it was time for a nap around noon. He missed out on some of the fun but I actually got to visit with friends so I couldn't complain.
