happy halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying this season as much as we are. This cold weather has made it feel much more like fall lately... We even had to turn on our heat! I can't believe October is already over.. This is my favorite time of year! 
We celebrated Halloween this year with our nephews, Truett and Jack who came to trick-or-treat at our house. This was their first time, so it was pretty exciting. They weren't quite sure what to do when I greeted them at the door with a bowl full of candy. Truett tried to take the whole bowl. Jack wanted to hold the candy in his hands instead of putting it in his bag. I made these rice krispie treat pops to make it even more festive. :)

We had a little celebration with homemade hot chocolate and marshmallows. Toby had a fun time chasing them around the house. And we only had one spill! I consider that a success.

 Truett is wearing Brian's old batman costume that his mom made for him when he was a kid!
Toby isn't used to so much excitement around here! :)


  1. Loved seeing the fun! I must confess that I miss the years of trying to get everyone ready to head out the door for a night of fun!

    1. I must confess this was really, really stressful for me; don't miss this at all but it sure looked fun!
