A Halloween Recap

Monday, November 1, 2010
I am telling you, this past month was crazy. Seriously, crazy. Between keeping up with orders and craft shows, Finley busting up his mouth and getting stitches, school, Halloween hoopla, and our regular toddler madness, I am beat!! In the midst of the chaos, we had an amazing Halloween with the family complete with an eyeball toss, donkey pinata, and ghostie treasure hunt.

As most of you know, Finley insisted on being a purple Mini Cooper.


He's been waiting weeks for the chance to wear this costume and "drive" down the street. But when the time came, he decided he'd rather tow it than wear it. 


Oliver was going to be a ghost and we made a cool little costume out of cheese cloth (thanks to one of my commenters for the suggestion!). Sadly, we couldn't keep the eye holes lined up with his actual eyes and had to ditch the ghost at the last minute. Fortunately, we had Finley's old puppy dog costume on hand and Oliver makes a ridiculously cute puppy.


The day was so perfect that my little guys actually got along and sat for some cutie brotherly pictures. (A major rarity.)



I love Halloween but I'm glad it's over. I'm looking forward to moving on and preparing for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Seriously your family sounds like so much fun...I mean c'mon an "eyeball toss"!!! Sweet! I am glad for October to be over too...but I sort of cringed when you said Thanksgiving and Christmas in the same sentence. As, much as I love them both they always steamroll me with how fast they get here! Here's to the holidays!!!
