Pre-Halloween

We've done all sorts of fun Halloween stuff this last week. On the 17th we went to Barnyard Boo at the farm at Thanksgiving Point. It was fun but we didn't stay very long. They had games for kids and we dressed the boys up in their costumes. Chandler is a dragon again this year. He didn't really have a preference so he is wearing the same costume as last year. If he really cared, we would have gotten him something different. Rowan is wearing Chan's costume from his first Halloween. A cute cubby lion :)







My mom came down this last Friday to spend the day with the boys and me. We went to an aerobics class in the morning, and then went to lunch and shopping. Chandler got to pick out his birthday present from Puppy & Grandpa Nielson and he picked a Little Einstein's Laptop. Thanks! That evening we went to Avry's for a birthday/Halloween party. It was my oldest brother Jason's birthday. Avry had all sorts of cute decorations and we had yummy homemade chili and rolls, salad, and cupcakes. Jason brought his own birthday cake, a chocolate cheesecake, which was incredible. (Happy Birthday Jason!) We went to the pumpkin walk in Syracuse and a little haunted house and then went back to carve pumpkins at Avry's. I forgot my camera, alas no pictures of this exciting night. Hopefully I can get Avry to e-mail me some so that I can post them.

Last night we went to the Halloween Carnival at the Lehi Legacy Center. They had games, trick or treating, a spook alley, movie, and dinner. It was pretty fun and best of all, it only cost $3 to get in. (We only had to pay for Chandler.) I think Rowan and Chandler were the only kids there not dressed up, oops. They did have cute little matching Halloween shirts though.





So we are a week out from Halloween and have already celebrated 3 times. Me - I've celebrated way more than 3 times. I keep buying Halloween candy and it keeps disappearing so I have to buy more. Imagine that......

You and candy - what a combination! You're so funny! It's crazy, but we've known you long enough to not only remember the dragon costume...but the lion as well! My how time flies!!!

Looks like fun! We aren't doing much this Halloween with a new baby and all. I love their costumes! Garrett is going to be a dragon as well!

I just bought that Spider shirt for Logan yesterday. It was $1 and he loves it.

yeah baby! Love the candy. I have bought a lot as well, and eaten it. If you can recycle a costume and your kid doesn't complain, more power to you. That frees up more money for candy. Woohoo. Jason's birthday party sounds like it was fun. Sorry I missed it. The boys are cute little munchkins like always!

What a good mom you are! I haven't done anything fun with Jordan yet for Halloween. Thanks for listening to my complaining yesterday at church! We need to get together soon.

Totally understand, we have celebrated Halloween like all week! So many fun things to do! I love it! By the way didn't know about your baby products blog and I LOVE it! Such a great idea! Businesses should send stuff to you for FREE so you can review it!

Love the matching shirts. I've had a few moms tell me they are only a $1 right now, so maybe I'll have to go pick some up for next year.
