Going Through The Holidays

It has been a while since my last post and a lot has happened. The holidays are full swing here at our house but lets catch up first.

Halloween was a lot of fun. I dressed us as Flynn Rider while K-Dub dressed like Rapunzel. Evie was Mickey Mouse and BrittWhitFun was a witch. Check out our pics.

No Halloween could be complete without some pumpkin carving and trunk or treating with the nephews.

Thanksgiving is and will always be my favorite holiday and this year was no exception. I made lunch for about 10 people and I made all the fixings. I made the turkey, Mac and cheese, green beans, stewed cabbage, mash potatoes, and rolls. I also made cake pops for the kids, a butterfinger cheesecake, and a apple pie. It was so good I spent the rest of the afternoon passed out on the couch.

Now we are at Christmas and our house is in the full Christmas spirt. The gifts are bought, tree is up, and the lights are shining outside.

Got some great stories coming on the blog this week after having a reader reach out to me wanting an update. Stay tuned.

 

Our Yabba Dabba Doo Halloween!

Well Halloween has come and passed but it sure was fun. As you can see we were The Flintstones for Halloween. I have to say my little Pebbles looked really cute. After we got dress we went to Trunk-or-Treat at the local church and had a great time showing off our costumes to the community. People gave us lots of compliments and said that we were really cute. I think the real stars of the night were of course the babies. K-Dub and HJ who really looked cute with their Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm costumes on. We of course had to stop by Aunt E to see her Christmas decorated trunk.

After we left the church we stop by my mom’s house so she could see us. She was sitting outside in the driveway handing out candy to the local kids. She got her picture made with Pebbles and just said that she was too cute.

Oh, and when I was at work we had a pumpkin carving contest and one team made this really cute pumpkin in the shape of a Big Mac. It was the most original pumpkin I have seen in a long time. They won a free pizza lunch and they deserve it!

How was your Halloween? What did you dress up as? Ours was fun and it will always be one that K-Dub will remember for the rest of her life. If not, I could always just show her this blog entry. As for now I will be taking down the Halloween stuff this weekend to make room for my favorite holiday which is Thanksgiving. This year it is going to be hosted at my house so I have a feeling its going to be very stressful. In the meantime don’t get full on candy!
