Halloween 2018

Happy day after Halloween (or as I like to refer to it as-fair game to play Christmas music;)  This morning we all literally overslept.  Truth be told I don't even set my alarm anymore because my kids wake up so early it's never usually a problem...until it is ;)  Halloween was SUCH a blast and we had the best time but it always seems like a mad rush to get everyone ready and out the door.

 Jordan chose her own costume this year, Vampirina, but she also wanted to do Vampirina ballerina--not the character from the show so we tried to make her look as much like a vampire as possible (she also requested to be purple...still figuring out how to get the makeup completely off her face).  Everyone just assumed she was bat girl which really pissed her off but I think overall she had an AWESOME night.  We went over to our neighbors house for our annual pre-game before trick-or-treating.  The kids had pizza and the adults took sippy cups of wine to-go.  The weather cooperated and it was a beautifully overcast and warmish night, the perfect recipe for a spooky Halloween night.

Lukie was over the Mickey costume as soon as he put it on.  He literally cried and so I had to grab some Minnie ears and throw on a nose so that he would wear his--hot mess train.  I'm always like super impressed with families that get these awesome Halloween pictures with their families--ours looked something like this, "No Lukie, keep your costume on!"  "I'll give you candy!" "ok, Jordan, smile!, no look over here and smile!"  These are really the best times of our lives though, right?

They were super sweet walking around the neighborhood, most of the time Jordan was one house ahead...like bye Felicia!  Girlfriend was NOT sticking around to wait for her slow walking brother.  Luke was super good at saying trick-or-treat and then would say, "next house!"  I think in the end he was loving it.  We are thinking of moving this coming Spring so this Halloween was sort of bitter sweet, knowing it may be our last in this house so we opted to just stick close to home and then hand out candy to all of the trick-or-treaters.

Overall, the night was a success and now I'm ready to be rid of all the pumpkins and spooky stuff and just chill this weekend, finish up the downstairs bathroom, and start to plan our menu for Thanksgiving.

Hope you all had an amazing and memorable Halloween with your little ones!
