We SurViVed AnoTher HaLLoWeeN..;)

Hey there everyone!!! well we survived another halloween..and got the usual 20 trick or treaters..and there were 5 houses on our street that was quiet last night..and it didnt' start raining till 9m..when they had all gone not sure why it was so quiet..but some folks from church came and it is always so nice and so much fun to see the little kids having fun collecting their candy..This was my basket of goodies for them..they got like 7 pieces of chocolate, a glow stick and a spider ring or other plastic toy in their bags..I love doing this for..:)still have 4 treat bags left will take them to church on sunday and give them to the missionaries .;)
Our next door neighbors were our first trick or treaters..and they brought baby Landon all dressed up in his monkey suit with a banana on his head..isn't he just the cutest little chubby guy ever!!! I could squeeze for ever..he is getting so heavy..we are guessing between 22-25 pounds and his 5 months old..I gave him his little pumpkin basket for candy..but the treat bag wouldn't fit.;)
He looks thrilled doesn't he?
Our Friends Sarah and Travis brought their 3 little kids over for trick or treating last night..and Nalen (I hope I spelled his name right) was also a little monkey..he was sound asleep..
look at his little belly button..he was so cute too.;)
Here is big sister Nykol and Natalie.Nykol was a witch ( I think) but Natalie was..and her mom was having a ball painting on moles to her sweet little face..she looked more like a mint chocolate chip.;)we had the most curtious little kids come to our door last night..well mannered and wishing us a happy halloween...(you don't see this that often)..they get their candy and run..but this cute little group of 6 came up and were just all ended by a little after 8pm...
This morning I was up bright and early (all for nothing now)..but had to be at our grocery store at 8am to pick up some leftover pumpkins and stems and they sold out of no stems or extra pumpkins..and did I say it was raining buckets..holy cow we have puddles I called up hubby and got my grocery list and went shopping..and I must say it was nice to get it done so early and it was dead in the store..loved it..(note to self)..;)but they had their halloween stuff marked 50% I picked up a few for next year..
and my next door neighbor is getting this..every gal needs her own pumpkin carving she is getting this..cause after seeing her weld a huge knife..this will be so much easier..and Landon can paste on stickers to his pumpkin next year..well I am the house cleaned up..groceries put away...made a nice brunch for us..(hubbys day off)..and now I just want a nice fire so I can take a nap..but don't think it will might as well sew.;) goodness knows with the holidays coming up.I gotta get some sewing done and listed on my etsy..hope you all survived halloween too.;) have a wonderful week ahead everyone.;) and thanks for stopping by to say hi.;) I love hearing from you all:)


  1. Your little trick or treaters were so cute! Those little monkeys were adorable. No trick or treaters for us again this year. I always buy candy in case we get some dropping by....I buy candy that we like. Like you I need to get busy sewing. I'm making several Christas gifts and need to get started. I also need to get the Sailboat baby quilt finished for my doctor.

  9. Gina,
    Peyton was a little money too! We had about 60 kids or so...and I noticed that we had several that wished us a Happy Halloween too...and most of them thanked us for giving them candy. I just love seeing all the little ones in their costumes.
