As always, our family had a busy busy weekend. I love Halloween and just about any reason to do something fun as a family. I love picking the costumes and getting the girls dressed up and all the festivities that come along with it.
Friday night was slow and relaxed at home since it was game #7 for the World Series. I had one happy hubby though when the Cardinals won!!! He was very excited knowing the last 3 times the Cardinals won the World Series were the same years he, Makayla and Claire were born.
Saturday was a great day but we had tons of running to do. Makayla and Hannah had sold Krispy Kreme Donuts as a fundraiser for their cheer team. We did not sell that many but got all those healthy donuts delivered! We had the Altamont Halloween parade Saturday afternoon with Step by Step. It was a great weekend for weather, it was a little windy but tons of sunshine! I got pictures of the girls on the float after it was over. The studio got 1st place and Best of Show for the float, at least I think that's what the two awards were!
Sunday afternoon they were in the Effingham Halloween parade which we almost missed because sleepy mommy took a long nap! We did make it though but the girls left the parade candy in the back seat. I met them half way through to give them the candy and walked the rest of the way with them. That evening we took the bigger girls to Panic in the Park while my grandma came to sit with Claire. The park is only a block from our house so we walked there. I did not think it was a great idea but the girls had seen the stuff getting set up and were begging for over a week to go. We had to carry them after about 2 minutes into it but we survived with no tears until the chainsaw at the end, haha.
Of course Monday was the biggest day of all, trick or treating!!!! This was probably my favorite year for it since having kids. Makayla and Hannah were excited to say "Trick or Treat!", last year they were still really shy about it. We had planned on using a theme for the whole family but the girls really wanted to pick out their own costumes.
Makayla was a cowgirl
Hannah was a purple bat but the wings broke Sunday so she was calling herself a cat.
Claire was a baby piglet, I absolutely love animal costumes for the first year!
Claire was asleep within half an hour and stayed sleeping for awhile, then she was over trick or treating and ready for bed. What can I say? This girl loves her routine!
And a family picture, they didn't turn out well but at least we have one :) The girls wanted us to have costumes on so I told them our sweatshirts made us college students, haha, that satisfied them.
Needless to say, the girls are candied out and still on a sugar high. Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween!!!
