Happy November, friends!
I hope you had a wonderful Halloween weekend! Today, I have some pics from our Halloween at home this year. You know, 2020 has been terrible for so many reasons, BUT occasionally, it surprises me. This year, instead of meeting up with all of our friends and trick or treating multiple neighborhoods all night long, we had Halloween at our house with my parents and the Slaughters, and when we went to bed, I told Andrew that it was my FAVORITE Halloween to date! Instead of finding the “magic” out front, we made our own magic in the backyard. We had our costumes on (and this year, everyone dressed up!!), my mom brought all of the kids candy and Halloween goodies, we ate dinner and watched a little football and then we played two movies out in the yard…Hocus Pocus and The Sixth Sense and had a bonfire. Watching Smith, Nixon and Kensington watch The Sixth Sense was the highlight of my night. Bahaha! At the beginning, all three of them were saying it was boring and by the end ALL THREE OF THEM were sitting in an adult’s lap. I’ve learned a lot in 2020 and one of my biggest lessons has been that simple (meaning at home) can often be better. I didn’t take a ton of pics…but I did capture a few when everyone arrived…
Our sweet Ariel this year! She nailed it 🙂 .
Kensington and Ebby Lee always coordinate for Halloween but this year, Kensington wanted to be “scary” and Ebby Lee wanted to be “sweet”. They settled on…
Hippies. One super cute and one…a zombie. 😉
How sweet are these girls?!?!
He was the Grim Reaper. Sigh. I think he picked this costume just so he didn’t have to smile in any of my pictures 😉 .
Well, two years ago she was Anna, but this year, she wanted to be Elsa TWO (that was very important to her…not the original Elsa but the second one). She wanted the costume with the leggings and the ponytail 😉 .
It worked really well since her besties was already going as Anna 🙂 .
Last year, Halloween was so cold and raining, but this year, the weather was BEAUTIFUL!!!
These four are certainly getting big!!! Remember our first Halloween together…
Gang’s all here!!!
Your 1980s workout friends showed up to the party too!! For the record, he did have the original Richard Simmons shorts…they are hysterical, they are not suitable for the internet though 😉 .
Jane and Richard…sweatin’ to the Oldies together 🙂 .
Somehow, I do not have a single picture of Tab or Erika. What?! How did that happen???? She posted some on her blog too and they’re SUUUUPER cute!!! A
…we kept things super simple! I made my Pulled Pork Chili with a Caesar Salad, rolls and then a variety of dips. Erika brought pizzas for the kids and my mom brought dessert. It was perfect!!
Happy Halloween, friends!! I hope you all had a fun and festive weekend! Now…
