Halloween started early for us this year with our trip to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party!  The fun only continued after Zach and I got back from Hawaii πŸ™‚

First up we had Trunk or Treat at church with our sweet church family!

Tess LOVES animals but all three kids enjoyed the pony rides!

Zach wasn’t in the mood for his Hei-Hei costume but the rest of us still dressed up!

We also had our annual outing to the local Pumpkin Patch

Everyone was more interested in the toss game than the pumpkins

I love that Britt is at an age where she enjoys picture taking! Although these pics make me have a flashforward of her as a selfie obsessed teen haha!

Handsome boy

Smiles from Tessie are always a treat!

My babies!

Growing up too fast…soon Kye will be taller than me

Britt requested more photos πŸ˜‰

These two πŸ˜‰

Pumpkin carving!

It was chilly and Kye came down where this INFANT BEANIE hahahaha we died!

Our neighbors are so fun! We got “booed” this year which is where a family leaves goodies at your doorstep. It was awesome and something our kids really enjoyed! They loved getting to “boo” other neighbors. Watching them be sneaky was hilarious. 

Putting together the crafts from our basket

Last year we got a little into Halloween and that continued this year…I bought several outdoor decorations last year on clearance and it was fun having a decorated yard!

Tess LOVES “Spooky” things!

I love our spooky mantel πŸ™‚

Tess and I went to Britt’s school to help do craft time…she LOVES being a big kid helper and always does so well in Britt’s classroom. 

Our Halloween treats for Aunt Casey’s party!

Casey has been throwing a Halloween bash at her house for the past few years! She moved earlier this summer and I LOVE her new place and it was such fun having everyone together!!! 

I love how all the cousins have a BFF πŸ™‚ 

Costume Contest…

Poor Mr Rusty yall was STRUGGLE CITY with super bad kidney stones. He looks likes he’s in pain!

They were football fans haha Lowndes had a game that night πŸ˜‰

Moana crew! (I’m thinking that’s Zach’s chicken face?!?!)

Hilarious. 

The Flemings were PIGS IN A BLANKET!

(and you know I appreciated that they used life changing blankets ha!)

Mema, Cheryl and Jolee were Alvin and the Chipmunks

Carter and Cam were dragons and Casey was “mother of dragons” 

I just started Game of Thrones so I’m pumped that I got the reference and she looked ADORABLE

Mema WON and she was so genuinely excited it was adorable!

Zach was runner up for funniest behind Mema

Mr Rusty won scariest which was very deserving as those kidney stones seem SCARY

And Casey won best all around! Def deserving for her ADORABLE costume- hot mama!!!!

Thanks to Uncle Steven and Aunt Debby for judging! 

Craft time!

The past couple of years a decent sized group has come to our house for trick or treating and it’s been a lot of fun! We invited everyone again this year!

Proud of her pumpkin

Festive attire!

Want one for next year? Here’s a link!

Ready for trick or treating!

It was chilly on Halloween so I was nervous the kids would be cold in their original outfits. Plus they’d gotten PLENTY of wear out of them so I told them they could change it up if they wanted to and dress up like something else for the night. Britt wanted to stick with Moana, Tess also wanted to be Moana, and Kye was some mixture of Star Wars costume pieces. 

Our crew this year!

Triplet Moanas!

My gang

Tess was SO FUN this year! It was great not having little itty bitty babies and I know next year won’t be as laid back and easy going!

I’m pretty obsessed with this cardigan! 

Easy rider πŸ˜‰ 

Twinning with Robyn! 

Lorelai is SO good with the littles!

Love my man!

This girl let me go with her a little bit πŸ˜‰

So this year one house did a haunted house in their backyard and IF you were brave enough to enter you got a FULL SIZE CANDY BAR. Zach and Kye did it so I wanted to be brave too and went with Payton. Omg yall I was FREAKING OUT. The clown was so scary I kept pushing Payton ahead of me and telling her to grab the candy from him. Then this guy came up behind me with a chainsaw and I was DONE. I screamed like crazy and then Payton and I couldn’t figure out how to get out of the tarps and were stuck. Zach was dying. Haha!

We got home and had fun passing out treats to the neighborhood kids!

It was another super fun Halloween!
