We had a few Halloween festivities this year....
Let me start by saying that my husband goes ALL OUT with the yard decor. He loves decorating for Halloween and Christmas, and if passers-by stop for pictures and what-not, he just gets over-the-moon excited. It's awesome.
Scariest thing in my front yard: THIS girl.
But---before I get to Halloween night, let's post about Trunk-or-Treat at the church. Well, wouldn't you know it---I signed us up to host a trunk, and then find out that we have a baseball tournament that weekend. Whoops.
Mother in law to the rescue! While Damon stayed at the baseball tournament with Gage, I got Eliette and the trunk ready for Trunk or Treat. My mother in law came up to the church to watch Eliette while I finished the set up. Eliette was a mad woman, running all over the place that day.
Oh, those two! Seriously: how blessed are we? So lucky to have two healthy kiddos who ADORE each other. So lucky.
What else did we do pre-Halloween?
Well....there was an awesome backdrop for this little one to have her picture taken....It was our yard! (Thank you, Hubby).... We were actually going to visit family this day, and E just looked so cute that I had to snap a pic.
Here's Eliette in her super cute candy corn headband that Jess got for her. She LOVES the indoor trampoline park. This was on one of our Sunday School mom's gathering there for toddler jump. Good times.
And the creepy doll baby section? Ewwwwww!
On Halloween day, Eliette had a fun play-date at our same indoor trampoline park. After that, it was lunch with friends. It was a busy morning. How cute are these little bitty pig tails?
I took E home to nap and ran up to Baylor to visit a friend who had a baby! Baby K was welcomed into this world before Halloween, but I was super excited to visit and meet her on Halloween Day.
And then, before I knew it, it was Halloween Night! Now, for our actual Halloween pics! Damon usually goes all out in costume. (Yay!) He puts his make-up on with Eliette around so that she doesn't freak out when she sees him. This year, his face was pretty creepy! She wasn't scared at all. Gage? He hardly wanted his picture taken at all, and getting him to participate was like pulling teeth. He wanted to run off with his friends every 5 seconds. He's at that age....
Pics from our night, featuring Eliette as "The Itsy Bitsy Spooky Spider", Mommy as a black cat, Gage as "Death" (though he wouldn't wear the mask, and rarely wore his hood up, and generally had a smile on his face. He was the happiest, non-scary "Death," and this mom is okay with that!).
Gage and R1 with their loot:
I took Sister in to change her diaper. She was burning up. Took her temp. I can't remember how high it was now as I'm typing this, but it was crazy high. Urgent Care vs. ER high.
Got her changed into jammies, dosed with Motrin, hugged Memaw 'goodbye' and hit the road to have her checked out.
Final diagnosis: tonsillitis and double ear infection.
Antibiotics, Tylenol/Motrin, Pro-biotics, and bed.
