Hallowen Here and There

Halloween weekend turned out to be quite busy for us. Friday night Blake had his first boy/girl party. He turned 13 earlier this month and really wanted to have a party for his birthday so we put it off so he could have a Halloween party. There were about 30 kids and they had a great time dancing, and hanging out. We even played a couple of games and had a costume contest.

Blake had his first dance. (Thanks to my sister, I have pictures!)

Saturday was busy with finishing up last minute costumes, spending time with my sister and niece, and hanging out with friends and neighbors. Unfortunately Matt had to work (can't turn down overtime), but the kids had a pretty good time despite the cold weather.

It was so cold that these were the only pictures I got. Poor Emma's fingers were so cold and red we decided to go in to town to our local fire station for a party they were having for the younger kids. The kids enjoyed free hot dogs, popcorn, games and prizes and were happy to be warm.

While we were enjoying our Halloween so was our little man on the other side of the globe. New Day doesn't celebrate Halloween, but they did let the kids dress up and have fun carving pumpkins.

Cute photos and NEAT costumes. How did the poor robot get around!!??...great costume though!!

And that Drew of yours... he is SO stink'in cute! Everytime I see photos of him and Adalyn, I just melt...and this one struck me the same... little charmer with his arms wrapped around her waist. I think it's true love, for sure!! :)
