We had a fun Halloween week with some typical Fall activities. First of all, I can’t believe Beckham has had 3 Halloweens. He wanted to be a monster this year. Hmm…fitting isn’t it?!
We went to a local pumpkin patch with my mother-in-law, Glenna. We went during the day on a weekday, so it wasn’t crowded at all. When we first got there, he started collecting all the corn that had been eaten by the animals. He was really into them. ???
Bounce House all to himself!
Little man chilling. The weather was perfect also.
B really wasn’t into pictures this day, so we got this.
The hayride was fun. It took us through “Ghost Town” B counted all the “waters” on the ride. The pumpkin patch was a fun little adventure and a tradition I’ll carry on!
I have NEVER carved a pumpkin (at least to my knowledge). Every Halloween, I tell myself I’m going to and then never do. Not this year! I bought a pumpkin and a carving kit (he chose a spider). I thought Beckham would have fun pulling out guts and seeing the end product. Since Ryan isn’t around for a lot of these activities in the Fall (he’s reffing), I had to manage carving a pumpkin with a 2 year old and an infant. Haha…it was kind of a disaster, but I finished it. I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to get them more involved as they get older. Beckham got to wear his pj’s to school for Halloween.
Halloween morning was COLD. I LOVE having to put on cozy socks to keep warm! I was gearing up for a long day with both boys SOLO (Ryan reffing into night when we’d trick or treat).
Our Downtown does something called “Scare on the Square” where kids can trick or treat around town. Many people will sit outside at the restaurants and people watch. We met up with my friend Brittany and her kids. He went as Sully on Monsters…one of his favorite movies. It was the perfect costume for the weather.
These two guys last year and this year…
And all 3 of them…
After downtown, we got some pizza on the way home. I planned on grabbing it to go, but B wanted to “eat at the store” so we did. This was my first time at this place and it was one of the best pizzas (bacon and mushrooms)!!! It’s one of those pizzas where the crust is just as good as the pizza. If you’re local, it’s Durkin’s Pizza. Durkin was there and talked to us quite a bit…really nice guy!
Maddox stayed in his stroller the whole time, but he “went” as a Dallas Cowboy’s football player. Perfect with his little helmet.
Y’all B was so cute trick or treating. Watching his little monster body running up to the doors and SCREAMING “trick or treat” with one bang on the door, was adorable. We definitely need to work on some manners! 🙂
We’re “cheers-ing” our twizzlers in the pic above.
It was a fun week. It’s now November…my ALL TIME favorite time of the year. I am obsessed with Thanksgiving and Christmas!!! As a matter of fact, I’m listening to Christmas music as I type this. I love the food, the stores, the weather, the clothes, the smells, the traditions, the whole atmosphere of these next two months!
