Halloween Fun

HaPpY HaLLoWeEn!!!
We started our festivities with a little bit of

pumpkin carving, or as Aiden calls it

Ryan was feeling "too cool" to help out,

Kailyn ran the other way after a couple handfuls of goop.

but Aiden sat alongside daddy,

helping out the whole time!

TrIcK aNd tReAt!!!
We started our day making a bunch

of yummy Halloween treats.

Cupcakes, orange Rice Krispy Treats, and of course,

caramel apples!

Kailyn was my little chef, head of the kitchen

while Aiden cleaned up the mess. After taste testing all our yummies,

the kids got all dressed up to

go collect even more sugar!

Aiden's sister was a "good" witch,

which she reminded us of many times.

Aiden's brother put on his Yankees

jersey and hat and was an

instant baseball player.

Then there's my little monkey,

whose costume fit him perfectly,

in more ways than one.

(actually sitting in his stroller)

When we got home I went to change

and my little monkey immediately headed

to his favorite place - his sister's room

to find his own monkey business,

aka - up to no good.

The costume was definitely a good fit.

All in all, we had a

SpOoKtAcUlAr EvEnInG!

Hope you did too!

Thank you all for your sweet comments ... it was a fun night!

Jodi - If I could send you some homemade cupcakes that would actually get there "fresh" and "not "smushed", you know I would! But if you need some good ol' Betty Crocker cake batter and frosting, let me know! LOL!

JoeyRes - THANK YOU so much! I've never rec'd a blogger award before! You made my night! ; )

Love it! What a little monkey! (I'm behind again on blog reading, if you can't tell, btw). I love the pics in Kailyn's room! He and Lucas would have made quite a pair that night. We must get together again before you know what!
