Halloween Hootenanny

The 2nd annual Hart's Halloween Hootenanny was a success! This year was a tad different than last year's late night, loud music, baby-less shin dig but it was just as fun! We decided to take advantage of our beautiful new deck and cooler Texas temps and grill out for our neighbors and friends. This being Ford's first Halloween (and holiday in general), we really thought long and hard about our costumes. I was a fountain of ideas but Jon wanted our costumes to be perfect. And this is what we decided on...



A family of garden gnomes. We made our own costumes...felt, fake fur, a couple of T shirts from Hobby Lobby, and a trusty glue gun...they were a hit! We knew Ernie wouldn't be about having a fake beard or hat on so we recycled his shark costume :)

Let's face it, once babies enter the equation, it is all about them! Ford had lots of friends come to his party and the baby picture is about the cutest thing I've ever seen.




Ford and I are heading to Dallas today with Mimi for some fun cousin lovin'! Happy Halloween week!
