Happy Halloween!

Well the girlies are full of chocolate and snug in their beds! Halloween is over and I'm pooped! It's been a fun few days. Festivities kicked off on Friday with our play group costume party. Finley was a clown, Rowynn a bag of candy, I was a cotton candy vendor and Kyle(who was at work) was a lion tamer/ringleader. It was such a fun morning spent with friends. There were so many cuties in costumes!!

After the girls' naps we got ready and headed to Kyle's workplace for their annual family Halloween bash. It was awesome! All the different departments had different themes and passed out candy, there were tons of games, music and so much more! We are so blessed for Kyle to work at such an amazing, family friendly place.

Saturday afternoon our church hosted a fall festival and we really enjoyed going. The girls love bounce houses and between two visits to the pumpkin patch and all these fall festivals they've gotten to do a lot of bouncing! Rowynn has been standing by herself for a while now, and as of 10-19, she can take a couple of steps. She loves to dance and was grooving to the music at the festival! And if you notice, Finley in the bounce house with all the big kids, that's my independent girlie! At one point she was in there with three big boys and they were so sweet to her. One of them said, "Wow, she's tough!" Yep. Totally.

Tonight we went to First Baptist's Fall Festival at The Fields. Seriously, they had a rock climbing wall, a petting zoo, about 20 bounce houses/slides, a live band, games, candy, FREE POPCORN, FREE COTTON CANDY, FREE SNOW CONES, and they had Chic-fil-a, Pizza Inn, & Macallister's set-up selling food. And the best part? Everything except food from the restaurants, everything was FREE!!!! WHAT?!? It was so much fun! We met up with several other friends and the weather was perfect!

After we left The Fields we headed to our favorite pizza place to eat with some friends. By the time we got home it was a little late, and I debated on whether or not to let Finley trick-or-treat, but since there were still porch lights on, we went to a few houses on our street and I'm so glad we did, because she had a BLAST! She loved knocking on the doors and loved that everyone was giving her candy! She kept saying, "I go trick-or-treating again!" She came home and dumped her pink pumpkin out and dug in!

Happy Halloween!!!
