52 Weeks of Happiness :: Week 34


The whirlwind of Halloween.

This year we seemed to really

get into the spirit of the holiday.

It seemed like every time we

turned around over the last few days

we were doing something Halloweeny.


There was a haunted hayride at a "Festiboo".


Oh, and I did tons of baking
for Griffin's class party.

Cupcakes compliments of

Kids Kingdom Bakery, of course.

(We're still taking pretend orders)


There was a big bad wolf costume
for school which requested

the kids to dress up as their favorite

storybook character.


Then we suited up in our REAL costumes.
We had the Red Power Ranger

and Handy Manny.


Then, of course,
there was the joy

of running around like wild animals

collecting as much candy

as could fit in a little green bucket.

It was a fantastic and full Halloween.

I feel so blessed to have

these two little guys

to celebrate the madness of it all.

I wouldn't take back one hectic moment.
