I’m not sure how it happens, but every year holidays become more and more special. I thrive on tradition and love to celebrate holidays with my family. Although, J would say we are DEFINITELY lacking in the Halloween decor department. He begged everyday to have zombies, skeletons, and grave stones in our front yard. Maybe some day, but probably not haha
ward trunk or treating with dad as a storm trooper, one of J’s fav leaders at church as Darth Vader, and J as Kylo Ren.
A week before Halloween we(ahem, just he boys) carved pumpkins for family night. Us girls watched and cheered them on. I don’t love carving pumpkins, but I do enjoy painting them. Josh on the hand is a pro, his was a storm trooper and J’s was a funny face(forgot to take pics!). We watched a Halloween movie and had donut holes(last years here and here and here)
On Halloween J had his first preschool party. Lily and I helped in his classroom while they played games like bingo, and helped make chocolate ghost suckers.
Then we stopped at my moms to show off our costumes.
Later that night we went to my in laws for dinner and trick or treating. Lily was teething, so she wasn’t the happiest. She did like going up to the doors and getting candy, her and Ezra were too cute!
PS I have to add this funny story. My in laws board horses and when we pulled up they were in their front yard! I quickly called Lee Ann and her and my SIL Alisha ran out to wrangle them back into their gated enclosure. Alisha, was in the middle of painting her Halloween mask and so she ended up running around the neighborhood trying to catch the horses with her scary zombie face! It was terrifying and hilarious!!
