Costumes, Candy, and Cuteness!

It's that time again of the year to dress up, eat sweets, and admire everyone in their costumes. I enjoy this time of the year so much more now that I have kids. 2 weeks ago I found costumes for the kids 1/2 off! Did not know when and where they were going to wear them but I could not pass them up. We especially bought them because each costume represents the kids and their particular stages in life right now.

 JJ was a Hamburger. Why was this fitting for him? JJ is currently going through the "Terrible Twos". Each day we do not what type of Hamburger is going to wake up. We can get a bold and spicy one(attitude), one with pineapple on it(a sweet boy), or one that is medium rare(grumpy with moments of joy).

JoJo was a Strawberry. She is simply Sweet and Plump on each and everyday. We feel really blessed to have such a sweet tempered and easy going baby. SWEET!

 What would you know? Uncle T invited us over to his neighborhood Carnival down the street. It was a great set-up, the kids costumes were cute, and  we thought the sweets were delish(except for JoJo)!

 We then went to Great Aunt Kit's and Uncle Dennis' House. JJ played  when them and in their backyard, still wearing his costume! JoJo was tired from the previous activities and slept.

On Halloween we were invited us to a Halloween Park Party. My friend that we do play-dates with was hosting it. It was so so fun! She did a great job with picking a great park, serving healthy snacks,giving out pumpkins, and favor bags. We had a costume great time. JJ had a wonderful nap after it was all over! 

Who needs to Trick or Treat after all of this? Not us! Instead we passed out Candy to the Trick or Treaters.
