Halloween Fun

We had a fabulous Halloween week this year! I love celebrating, and it is so much more fun with a child that loves celebrating, too! Because of backwards pictures, we have our week in reverse!

Halloween night was spent at the end of our cul-de-sac with all the neighborhood kids. We had a pot luck dinner, games, treats, and a fire. We LOVE our neighborhood and all of the great people who live here.

Halloween morning we went to our local farmer's market to pick out the perfect pumpkin. It was the first sunny day in over a week!

With the aforementioned horrible weather, Nolan and I got pretty bored being stuck in the house. We made Halloween crafts!

Earlier in the week, we went to my great friend Kresta's house for a Halloween party. Nolan did wear his costume, but it only lasted 5 minutes and I didn't get a picture in time. I was surprised that Halloween night he didn't want to take it off after over 2 hours!

We had a wonderful Halloween!

Fun week! I guess Halloween was a hit with Nolan- who, by the way, is getting to be such a little boy! He looks so old (you know, for an almost two year old)! I love Fall time, and all of the fun things that go with it!

Oh, Nolan is TOO MUCH in that Buzz costume! Stinkin' adorable. Glad you had such a fun time. Love the marshmallow on the string, that might be fun around here now and then when I need everyone to calm down and get distracted... :)

The pics are adorable. Nolan looks so much older. Cute costume. I'm so excited to see you nextweek.
