Halloween Parties

Landon got invited to his first Halloween party this year. -Thanks Bateman's! Christian came along with us. The boys had a blast! We searched for Halloween rubber duckies in the back yard, we ate pizza, there was a pinata, they played pin the eye on the monster and they did a ring toss on to a spider with legs pocking up. Then they decorated cupcakes. Landon just ate the candy that was supposed to go on the cupcake! These are all the pics I got-I am fired at being a good Aunt and photographer!

This is Christian's cupcake that he insisted I take a picture of. Sorry Heath, I'm sure that's not what it looked like when it got home in the baggie.
Sunday night, Jared's family had the big Halloween party, with the parade. Here are a few pics. (BTW he is a turtle---not a frog! Jared!!)

Lanny, you gotta take the paper off babe! -it tastes much better that way.

What a week!

Where do I start? We had a lot of fun and a lot going on too! (Incase some of you haven't noticed, I enjoy looking at pictures on blogs)--so here are quite a few for you to enjoy too!--Hopefully!

Tuesday was my Dad's birthday, we won't mention the number--I'd hate to upset him! Tuesdays are also Enrichment. Angie, one of the girls on the enrichment committee, asked if I would make some cards (examples) for the ladies to make. These are a couple of the ones I made. I am quite proud of them considering how late at night it was when I actually made them.

Wednesday Christian came and spent the day with us. We had a blast. We played with TP [Previous post]. While Lanny was sleeping, Christian and I played in the sandbox-that boy sure loves that sandbox- and played in the leaves.

Thursday, I crafted a little--when do I ever not craft? Need I mention that? Anyway it happened and the big thing that happened Thursday was the replacement of the power service panel. My cute husband did it by himself! We were without power all day long, but luckily he got it finished so we could have power that night.

Friday, we went to Gardner Village to see the Witches! Christian, Becca, Jordan, and Lex went with us. Becca and I went last year with our kids and we had so much fun that we wanted to go again. This year we had so much fun and are excited to go next year we are going to dress up! There were so many people there dressed up it made it fun! We might even have to make it a tradition. I think witches are my new favorite decoration for Halloween.

This morning, I worked so hard on the treats that I planned on bring to Grandma Tess' tonight and lo and behold, they were the worst tasting thing I have ever had! Jared said: "Bran, what's wrong with these?" It turned out the Crisco I used was expired. I was/am so frustrated. I made two batches and the first I used the last of one container of Crisco and the second I used a new container. The second batch is delicious! I wouldn't recommend using expired Crisco, not a good idea! Anyway, here is a picture of the treats I made and then threw away.

T.P. Anyone?

I guess toilet paper can be more than just a necessity!

Yes, this is my son unwrapping the TP rolls-which I had no idea he even knew how to do.

This is my nephew, Christian, wrapped up like a mummy, since it is Halloween and all! And yes, you guessed it, TP.

World's Best Blogger!

I wish I could say I was the World's Best Blogger, but I'm probably a little closer to the World's Worst Blogger! I have not been doing so good at keeping this updated every week like I told you all I would do. So, anyway, here are a few pictures of the fun things we have been doing.
