Happy Halloween

I can't believe it was already Halloween, I can't believe how fast the time has gone by. We had a fantastic Halloween, I can't believe how beautiful it was outside, the weather was fabulous and it was so nice that there was more daytime light for us to enjoy. This year Jackson was a giraffe, Hudson was a lion and Oliver a dragon - really Hudson was suppose to be the dragon but he is a bit of a chunko so we switched costumes and all was fine :) We celebrated lots this week with playdates and making yummy treats. We spent Halloween with our friends Jonathan and Karen and their 2 children Josiah and Jessie and also with our friends Aaron and Christy and their daughter Abbey. We had lots of fun trick or treating and then enjoying a nice meal indoors afterwards. All in all a great great time - Jackson was so excited to go trick or treating, he was very curious to look in each person's house and made sure to tell them to put the candy in his bucket and fill it up :) I just smiled the whole time we were outdoors, it was great to see Jackson and his friends having such a great time.

We recently just had family photo's taken and they turned out GREAT - we had a great time and the weather cooperated with us.

I also spent a week in Minot at my sister's house, we had a great time and the cousins sure had fun playing together all day long!!!

Well I will post another blog entry shortly - it is John's 31st birthday on Monday so I'll post some pics from that. Hope all is well with everyone!!!





These are our pumpkins, I love the scary one in the front and the cat one is neat as well :)





I carved 3 pumpkins and John did one, Jackson kept saying GROOOOSSS and MEESSSSY - he doesn't like the feeling of it at all and didn't want to get his hands dirty, must be the texture b/c he has no problem getting them coated in mud!!!




Here they are in light, I painted the cat pumpkin black, I think it turned out fairly well, you can't see the one pumpkin at the back very well but he has stars for eyes





Hudson and Oliver are crawling like crazy throughout the house. Hudson tends to move more than Oliver and Hudson loves to crawl out of his pants and parade around the house. He is too funny.





These are the Halloween cupcakes Jackson and I made, we called his girlfriends over to taste them and I think they approved :)



This is Alexa, Jackson loves to play with her and he loves to go to her house as well. We had a hard time getting them to look at the camera as they were more focused on eating the icing off the cupcakes!!!!!



Jackson and Alexa took a break from their snack to say hi to the camera - they couldn't keep their fingers off the icing - I guess Halloween time is for eating as much sugar as you can :)





Here is Hudson on the left and Oliver on the right and in the exersaucer is their girlfriend Kaleigh :) Kaleigh and Alexa are sisters, again we have fun playing together, Jackson gets his girlfriend and Hudson and Oliver have to fight over Kaleigh:)




Here are Hudson and Oliver in their funky Halloween hats from our friends Bryan and Tara-Lynn, these hats are tooo cute, they remind me of the hats those gangster rappers wear, I forget the rappers name but I think they are adorable!!!




The boys seem so proud of their hats, YO YO YO Check us out !!!!



These are the caramel apples I made for Halloween, I started them with caramel, then coated them in white chocolate then sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar, they were DELICIOUS!!!!




Here are Jackson and Victoria, they are such good buds they just love to hang out and play!!!!!




Here we are starting our trick or treating, Jackson is so excited.... again I couldn't stop smiling the whole time we were out, I'm so happy it was a great day:)




I think Jackson felt the same way I did b/c that smile on his face never came off the whole time:)





Here is the whole gang, Abbey who was tinkerbell, Josiah is the monkey, Oliver the dragon, Hudson the lion, Jackson the giraffe and the white kitty is Jessie - she is trying to catch that Lion :) or is she trying to catch the Dragon :)




Here they all are again, hmmmm that Kitty Cat seemed to make her way inbetween the
Dragon and Lion, what is she up to ????
