Halloween 2009

What a Night to Remember!

We headed over to Jeff and Heathers house for some dinner. After that we had to take about 100 photos of the kiddies. I thought that the boys costumes were darling! What a great combo BUZZ and WOODY. Then we got the old' wagon out and hit the road. I don't think that Briggs made one peep all night. Briggs absolutely loved to see all the kids and excitement through out the night. Jace on the other hand was scared to death of everything!! We had a great time hanging out with all the cousins and grandparents. After the TRICKER-TREAT'N we headed over to Pops & Grandma Whivies to visit.

We had the best Halloween this year!

Briggs was a nightmare at his First hair cut...

We had to bribe him with suckers!!

Holy Moly! It is that time of the year again and YES the HALLOWEEN Costumes have arrived.... Jace has thought out and planned very carefully the perfect costume for him and his brother. Jace is going to be BUZZ LIGHTYEAR and little Briggs is going to be WOODY! I thought is was quite funny when Jace was checking for the UPS driver every day wondering when his BUZZ was coming... Well let me tell you I really don't know if the costumes are even going to last to the 31st of October? Every day since we received the costumes Jace and his cousin Rafe have been putting on the get ups while they watch Toy Story 2 They switch back and forth, back and forth and It is exhausting I can tell you right now "IT'S GETTING OLD!" Whatever, I guess that is what it is all about... And poor little Briggs just watches the fast action jumping from couch to couch.. Its all pretty exciting for him to watch!

Carve It Up!!!

Tonight we got a little CREATIVE, and got out all the kitchen knifes!!! Yep, we Carved up some PUMPKINS for the boys.. Jace was just absolutely freaking out about touching the Pumpkins Guts...... We carved a happy face with two bottom teeth just like our darling Briggs. Jace wanted a really scary pumpkin with mean eyes. How did we do?

Pumpkin Patch

This Weekend we hooked up with the Newby and Hofer cousins and hit Staheli Farm... We had a ball, I think we hit everything! You name it we did it...... the kids loved the Petting Zoo, We took a tractor ride to the Pumpkin Patch, Gathered Pumpkins,The boys played on all the slides. But, the best part was the Haunted Corn Field. I tried to talk Jace out of it but he was determined to be a big Brave boy and go with his dad...I don't know what it is about Halloween but I love to hate the Spooky Allies... They just get my blood pump'n and scare me right to death. Ryan, Jace, Jeff, Reggie and I went in the Haunted Corn Field together as a group.... and I think I scared the crap right out of Jeff and Reggie!!! (I wouldn't let go of them) But, what made us laugh the hardest is when the chain saw guy was running after us in the field and I TOTALLY ATE CRAP!!!!!!! on all fours I went down like I was sliding into home..... Man I did not see that one coming! What a Great Night!

Fabulous Fall

I love this time of year!
The nights start to cool off, The smell of Pumpkin Vanilla Candles, The leaves start to change color, Wardrobe changes. It's like a fresh new start of something EXCITING! I really look forward to have the SEASONS change. I always know when October is near because "THE MOTHER" VIV Starts talking about her Halloween DECOR... Ever year it takes about 2 weeks to get all of her Witches, Pumpkins and Wreaths out of storage. She lives for the month of OCTOBER. And I am so thrilled when she calls me up and says " Come put up my business" She is the best!!! she does so much for me and my family, So what ever I can do to help brighten her day I am all over! So, I just got back from her house and all I can say is Holly Crap! How can she fit all that stuff in her house? Well I got the bug! I decided to donate a little space to my Halloween Shrine... It's nothing like Vivs or Amys house but, I think that it is just enough....
