Weekend Recap: Halloweekend Edition

This weekend didn't end up going exactly as we had planned, but we ended up having a blast anyway!  Here's what we were up to in the weekend before Halloween:

Friday was the last day of Red Ribbon Week for me and LL.  The theme this day was Halloween costumes!  LL wore most of her Pirate costume, and I wore most of my Queen of Hearts costume from our girl's trip to Disney.

Matt and Cooper busted out the selfie stick for my "Happy Morning" picture, and it made me SO HAPPY!

Gigi picked Cooper up from school so that Grammy and Pop could go to LL's Halloween party at school.  Cooper was so excited about Gigi coming to get him!

And LL was so excited about Grammy and Pop coming to her party!

She was also mostly excited about Grammy and Pop checking her out after the party - haha.

We have been so blessed that our girl has ended up with amazing teacher's every year of primary school!  God truly had His hands all over her placement every year!

On the way out, they ran into LL's Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Allison!  Isn't she cute?  All of the Kinder teachers were dressed as birds for "birds of a feather flock together".

Notice LL's eye?  Yep.  Remember that.

That evening we headed back to LL's school for her Fall Festival!

Saturday morning we woke up at 6 am to a fun surprise - LL's right eye was swollen huge and completely shut.  Yay!  Pinkeye!  She and I snuggled in bed for a few hours, and then got to the doctor right when they opened at 9.

Because of the pinkeye, we cancelled our plans for the whole day (running errands, family lunch in town, carving pumpkins, neighborhood block Halloween party).  We stayed home all day and cleaned and let the kids play outside.  Thankfully, we have parents who could care less about possibly getting pinkeye, too, and they invited us over to their house (since they knew we had to cancel our fun stuff) for a spooky Halloween dinner!

First up?  Roasting hotdogs outside!

Cooper doesn't like to roast things over the fire ("It hurts my eyes"), so he and I hung out and took pictures instead.  :)

We ate our hotdogs inside with all the lights out and only candles and the jack-0-lantern lit up and Halloween music playing.  It was so fun!  After dinner, it was back outside for s'mores!

Sunday morning we decided to stay at home so as not to possibly infect anyone else at church.  I started my day with my new favorite breakfast: vanilla greek yogurt, strawberries, and granola.

The kids spent the morning outside helping Matt wash his truck, and I stayed inside and did laundry.  After dinner, we went outside to do our pumpkin carving!

Pumpkin guts!

What this translated to was Matt and I carving pumpkins while the kids ran around in the yard - haha.

Pumpkin carving team!

Me and my old school jack-0-lantern.

Finished product!

Two happy kids!

Now we are all ready for a fun Halloween tomorrow!!
