Sooooo I was SUPER excited this year because we did our first ever family costume!!!!
I will just go ahead and warn you that I got a little carried away with fun festive food! The kids started the day with a monster donut.
So the Flinstone costume idea actually came together because our Preschool was having Prehistoric Preschool Days so we had to dress up as something prehistoric. And then, all the stars in the world aligned and I found a plain orange shirt in Matt's size and he (reluctantly) agreed to the whole family costume thing. He loves us. He really loooooves us. (; The kids and I went to school and had lots of fun with all kinds of prehistoric activities.
Oh funny sidenote-the kids had no idea who the Flinstones were so we had to google an episode for them to watch.
There was also a prehistoric parade and these two cuties (above and below) did great!
There fall parties were Monday and Thursday so this was the lunch I sent on Monday.
And then we signed up to bring dessert Thursday and Lilly requested, "The two chocolate chip cookies with the icing in the middle." To which Reid immediately replied, "Ohhhh I do, too!" So we made some double doozies and added candy eyes to be festive. (Oh, and I just use break and bake cookies and whipped white icing.)
This was their Halloween lunch. I totally Pinterest failed the apple mouth with marshmallow teeth. Ha!
This is Whitney and I--we were in charge or Prehistoric Preschool days together! She is also one of Reid's teachers.
Lilly's teachers dressed up as paleontologists. I am so glad that both Lilly and Reid have teachers that make learning so much fun!
Here is Christy--she set up all of the recess activities and the kids had so much fun! I LOVED her costume!
And just a few more of the fun ladies I work with. I wish I would have gotten a picture of all of them but I had to go back to teaching. (:
I was such a lucky Wilma!!! I had the cutest Freds EVER all day long.
And then the best Fred ever at night. ( ;
Oh and Lilly's teacher sent me this picture. LOVE it!
After school we were so excited because DeDe, Mike, Bert, Becca, and Breanna were all in town. We were having some friends over for pizza and trick-or-treating later so the kids made their brooms from Reeces and pretzel sticks. We love these because they can make these all by themselves.
Love them--they made every one of the brooms!
This was all the kid food. Mandarin oranges jack-o-lanterns, ghost bananas, ghost cupcakes (that I got from Sam's and added chocolate chips and Hershey circles to make the face), the brooms, and mummy dogs. All the adults ate pizza...and maybe a cupcake. ( ;
Lilly changed into Belle before trick-or-treating. Hopefully I can get some trick-or-treating pics from Aunt Becca because I didn't get any. Reid was Spiderman for trick-or-treating.
And Breanna was a cute little ladybug. We are so thankful we got to go trick-or-treating and spend the night with such fun friends and fun family! Oh, and we are good on candy until next Halloween.
I snagged Matt up out of the dating pool and we got married 8 1/2 years ago! He is an amazing husband to me and awesome father to our two little ones. We are just a couple of Christian people trying to get closer to God, reflect Him better, and raise our children in His Word and His Way!! We are loving every minute of this busy/fun/blessed life!
This little princess is a mixture of sweet and sassy! She keeps us laughing with practically every word that comes out of her mouth. She can melt your heart with a smile and a giggle and then turn right around and keep you on your toes with some mischeviousness! Her facial expressions give away her every thought and we just couldn't love her more (but somehow tomorrow we will)!
This is our boy with the magic smile! He is a perfect mixture of sweet and snugglie and ALL boy. He is laid-back like his Daddy and full of energy like his sister. He is happy climbing and dancing or curled up reading a book with Mommy. He is always learning some new trick and we can't wait to see what he is going to do and say next!
My handsome man and I have been married for 7 years. We are the extremely blessed parents of Lilly and Reid. This blog documents our lives, allows the grandparents and other family to see regular pictures of the little cuties, and helps friends and family stay in the know about us! Overall, we are simply a God-loving family of four!
