Happy Halloween Ha ha ha ha!

I took a super grumpy super hero to Curtis' Halloween parade and party at school.  I'm so grateful that his school lets the kids celebrate Halloween.  Because it is so fun and the kiddos are just so super cute.  I just love his school so much.  

The kids got to make a few laps around the field in all their costumed glory. 

Our bat boy even took his little sister for a bit.  


Then cupcake decorating in the classroom.

Ready to get out and trick or treat!!

These kids did great.  And betsy walked pretty much the whole way.  She really got into the whole thing.  

After trick or treating snack.

Some candy was enjoyed.  Now everyone is tucked in tight in their beds and we are waiting for the switch witch to arrive. All in all a pretty fantastic Halloween!

picking pumpkins!

My old friend Stacy came for a visit this weekend. It was so nice to catch up with a friend that I haven't seen in a few years.  Stacy and I were roomies in college and she moved to the Monterrey bay area so it didn't feel like she was too far, but now she has moved back to her home state of Louisiana so it feels really far! One of the things she wanted to do was go out to Crane Creek county park and take some pictures of the kiddos. Basically, one of my favorite things. I think she really knows what she is doing when it comes to photography so I'm excited to see the ones she took. These are the ones I took along the way - I think they are pretty cute - probably because they are of my two favorite things.
