Halloween 2015

Halloween has come and gone.... Ford was quite stressed when I started taking down our decorations on Sunday... and yes I take down my decorations the day after or else it stresses me out. He kept saying "It's not Halloween Day anymore" and as I put up our Thanksgiving/Harvest decorations, he said "It's Thanksgiving Day!". I kept saying he will have a major detox this week after Halloween is over because we did so many fun things but I think the real detox will happen after Christmas is over. Speaking of Christmas... we got our Christmas lights installed on Sunday as well. Don't worry, we don't have them on but we've been talking about getting them professionally done for a while since our house is so tall and there is no way Jon is getting on the roof and we had a guy come over for an estimate and of course Jon negotiated and they were up by 6pm. It is going to take everything in me not to start putting up my Christmas decor until after Thanksgiving (we usually do our tree the Saturday after). I just love this season!

So back to Halloween. Friday brought in flooding around Central Texas and I was so nervous Halloween would be cancelled but Saturday was beautiful and kind of hot! Leave it to Texas to be super bi polar with it's weather. We set our outdoor sectional in the front yard around 4pm and loaded up the coolers with beer and water (and 350 pieces of candy of course) and our neighbors brought over their popcorn machine and Green Egg smoked meat. The night was fantastic. We had neighbors and friends pop by throughout the evening, my parents came over for a couple of hours and my mom unicycled for the kids (yep she is 52 and can still ride a unicycle!), and took Ford trick or treating. Saying he had so much fun is an understatement. He ate cups and cups of popcorn for dinner and about 8 pieces of Halloween candy and would not stop laughing with his little friends. Jon and I dressed up of course, we were Donald and Daisy Duck to round out the Mickey gang and Ford thought we were pretty cool.  I love looking at life through the eyes of a 2 year old, it really makes you stop and appreciate the joy! Now I'll let the pictures do the talking.


(in case you were wondering, Jon and I were wearing the same "one size fits all" tights from Party City... not sure how he fit those calves in there because by the end of the night my legs were aching! He'll do anything for a costume haha).
