Halloween 2017

I have some Halloween pics for you today!!

Halloween 2017 went down with a bang!  Family, friends, food, fun…what more could four kids and two parents ask for?!

Here is a little peek at our fun Halloween…

Kensington was Little Red Riding Hood and Frenchie was the big bad wolf.  K made her a little collar that said “wolf” on it plus put her in a skirt, so you know…totally a wolf 🙂 .

My grandmother sent the four kids cards and these two wanted them photographed.  They were so excited about the day!!

A Sanderson sister and Captain America.

Frenchie Macaroon hung out with the jack-o-lanterns until our family arrived.

Halloween 2017!  Sarah Sanderson, Captain America, Queen Elsa, Moana, a wolf, Little Red Riding Hood and a Storm Trooper.  We were ready to go!

I asked Catherine which pic I should post of their family today and she said this one.  Ha!  I mean…sometimes, your one year old just does not want to wear a wig.  Sweet Samuel was much happier in his panda costume (below).  Love these three so much!!

My parents, Sean, Catherine and Samuel came over for dinner, and then we all headed…

…to Erika’s house!  We typically trick or treat at Andrea’s, but her kiddos had other things going on this year, so we met up at the Slaughters.

The three Sanderson sisters were just as excited as the kids to wear our costumes!

Bat Girl and her family were there too!  We had so much fun!!

Off we went!

I mean…you only have small kids once who appreciate this stuff, right?!

I love spending Halloween with friends!

Little Moana had to put a jacket on because it was chilly.

These two had a great gig!!


All the happy feels!

Samuel enjoyed watching the big kids run around while he ate candy in his stroller.

This Sanderson sister with her sister.

Meagan was MADE for this role.

Her big sister did her makeup for the night 🙂 .

Our sweet Bowen and Ashby are getting so BIG!

Whew!  And then we were home.  And this is how we all felt.

Except for this one.  She enjoyed her lazy night with a bone instead of trick or treating.  Next year, Kensington said this dog is going to be Poppy the Troll.  Get it?  #ofcourseyoudo

Happy Halloween from our family to yours!!

    you reminded me that i need to send my granddaughter a card for every holiday! they just moved so halloween was the first holiday that she did not live with me! i’ll start with thanksgiving! do your grandparents put money {or something} in each card? do the kids keep the cards forever? in a drawer? a box? i remember reading about your grandparents sending cards and i just loved that idea! i am so excited!

    How do you keep your house so clean with two dogs? I’m not a dog person, but my husband keeps trying to convince me to get a dog. I’m wondering what your best tips are for a clean house with inside dogs.

    • Mix and Match Mama November 2, 2017 at 5:46 am

      They’re not big, they don’t shed, they’re not allowed on the furniture (sometimes, I see Poppy sneak up there, but 99% of the time, she doesn’t), we keep them clean and groomed. 🙂

  • Denise November 2, 2017 at 5:30 am

    I truly believe that the Moana Movie & without a doubt costume came up just for Madeley to wear! All the kids are adorable but her costume suited her to a T!!!! Her & Britt had it all figured out no walking & then you can have all the suckers you want!!! Amazing how things can change in a year!! Two lucky families to get 3 precious girls to be their Forever!!!

  • Elspeth Mizner November 2, 2017 at 5:35 am

  • Christina November 2, 2017 at 6:34 am

    Does your neighborhood leave candy on the porch for trick or treaters since you’re all trick or treating?

    • Mix and Match Mama November 2, 2017 at 7:48 am

      So many people do, yes!!

    • Kelly November 3, 2017 at 9:42 am

      Oh really? I thought they looked so cool the way Shay did it! If I do that costume next year, I’m TOTALLY copying Shays idea! Good call Shay!

  • KeLe November 2, 2017 at 2:19 pm

    This is so random, but please tell me the wall color in your house. It would look great in my house.

  • Lizzie @ This Happy Life November 2, 2017 at 2:34 pm

    LOVED your costume! I was Sarah in like 4th grade and I remember my Mom running out to a ton of stores to try and put the costume together since there wasn’t one for kids at the time!

  • Shannon November 2, 2017 at 4:40 pm

    It POURED rain in our part of Houston. I felt so bad for the trick-or-treaters!

  • aimee havens November 3, 2017 at 12:45 am

    I seriously can’t with the Moana costume. I have never even see the movie but she is the cutest little thing I’ve ever seen.

  • Kelly November 3, 2017 at 9:39 am

    Madely And her tummy were just so cute and perfect! What a fun night! Thanks for sharing all your fun with us. Love y’all

  • Sarah November 4, 2017 at 8:21 pm

    LOL she messed up the eyebrows

    • Mix and Match Mama November 5, 2017 at 5:19 am

      I didn’t wear the eyebrows, I left those in the package. That was the eye shadow stickers. Horrible, right?! Ha!

  • Marta November 7, 2017 at 4:35 pm

    Everybody looks beautiful!!! Shay as usual you are a stunner and respectfully, your husband looks better than the actual actor who plays Captain America.
