Happy Halloween

This last week has been full of lots of Halloween fun!!  Reese started the week off heading to church in her Halloween dress and then we spent Sunday night at our church social.  The kiddos enjoyed lots of food, hay rides, bouncy houses, and so much more. 





Reese had her Halloween party at dance on Monday afternoon, so she wore her costume.  These girls are just the sweetest and we brought some goodies for all of her little friends.


These two skeletons are my favorite!


We went to Kraft (where Lindsey works) and trick-or-treated with Hudson and Nick on Wednesday afternoon.  Mimi and Rusty joined in on the fun too. Reese was a Banana Split and Brooks was a lion this year.





On Halloween, we went down to the Bentonville Square (despite the drizzly and cool weather) and let the kiddos do the costume parade and trick-or-treat at all the stores.  Reese had a BLAST!!  Brooks was already a little tired, so we didn't last long.




On Halloween night, Reese loves to hand out candy.  We dressed the kiddos back in their costumes and handed out all the candy we had and then went to a couple of houses in the neighborhood.  I love living in Hyde Park.  It was FULL of so many precious kiddos and their families.  We consider ourselves very blessed to be here. 


Overall, I'd say we had a lot of family fun this Halloween!! I think we crammed as much in as we possibly could.  This Mama is relieved that it's over. :))

Now bring on November!!

Brooks' One Year Pictures

I know it's probably a bit late to post these, but I can't forget them. We got Brooks' one year pictures back a few weeks ago, and although I wish the little guy would've smiled some more, they are JUST PRECIOUS!!  My gentle giant is growing too quickly!!











Fall Into October

I love the month of October!! It begins my favorite season, and the cooler weather starts to arrive. We've been busy so far and have had lots of family fun. Brynlee Claire turned 7. (How is that even possible!!) She had a party at Jump Zone and the kids had a blast. 

I enjoyed a spontaneous night out with two of my favorite people IN THE WORLD!!

Brooks Man has started Little Gym on Saturday mornings, and so far after just two weeks, I think he's loving it.  The balls and the bubbles are a favorite! :)

We've had fun going to Brynlee and Emma Grace's soccer games this season.

A clean bill of health for Reese at the dentist!!  She was (again) a ROCKSTAR!

I had a great night at dinner with these high school favorites of mine.

Matt and I had a random date night on a Thursday and grabbed some chips and salsa and then went to the movies. We saw "War Room."  I thought it was really good.

Aunt Bee came in town for Craft Fairs, and all the kiddos were out of school.  So of course we went to Dixie CafĂ©...their favorite!


I had meetings in Tulsa and was able to meet up with these beautiful cousins of mine for dinner at The Vault.

We went with the whole family to a Heritage football game.  It was Reese and Brooks' first football game EVER.  Brynlee was performing before and so we all showed up to cheer her on. It was surreal being back at the stadium that I use to cheer at in high school...with my children.  Time is flying!

Saturday night, Kyndall and I had some sister time and stopped to get a Starbucks and then spent the evening at Target, registering for Baby Evie. 

So far, we are loving October and are getting excited for Halloween.  Our neighbors boo'ed us yesterday so we're definitely in the spirit.  I love our neighborhood for so many reasons, but the people just make it wonderful!!  Look for more posts coming on Halloween fun!!
