Hate Halloween!!

I officially hate Halloween. For 3 years in a row, something horrible has happened on or around Halloween. 2008: My last dog, Katie dies right before Halloween. 2009: I got so horribly sick that I spent a week in bed. That week included Halloween. 2010: The worst of all! First off, my oldest cat Violet has a huge tumor on her stomach again so we know she won't be with us much longer. Then this morning my chinchilla Nathaniel was found dead in his cage. It came so suddenly. He was fine yesterday and then something must have happened last night because now he is gone. I was going to go trick or treating today but I am just not in the mood anymore. The picture posted is one of the last taken of my baby boy. It was only 6 days ago that he had his last photo shoot. Miss you forever, baby boy.

Halloween Party

We had the party and it was a hit. The boys all liked the games and their treat bags. The games we played were:

Toilet paper game where they teamed up and wrapped one team member up like a mummy. Terrell wrapped Trenton and they won.

Bean bag toss. Terrell got one bean bag in the bucket so he won. 

The donut game. They tried to eat the donut faster than the others without using their hands. Trenton won this game. This is Finley and he would not stand still for the pic.

They bobbed for apples. Finley was unable to reach so Terrell had helped him out by picking him up. This is a pic of Corey the dragon.

We also had a stuffed animal hunt where some stuffed animals were hidden and the boys looked throughout the house for them. Each stuffed animal had a numbered tag that matched a prize that the boy who found the animal would get.
After games was time for the family photo of all the boys together.

Terrell is a vampire, Kyle is a ninja, Elijah is a ninja, Trenton is a vampire, Finley is Harry Potter, and Corey is a dragon from How to Train a Dragon. Gavin was not able to come since he was in NYC but he will be back for trick or treating. I'll be taking more pics before trick or treating. TTFN Ta ta for now.

My new blog!!

Hi and welcome to my new blog! This is where I will post about what's new about me and cool things I may find. I will post lots of photos because I love taking photos. Tonight will be the Halloween party so I will have lots of pictures of that. I know that we will have Harry Potter, 2 vampires, a dragon, and I can't remember what Kyle will be. I will be Elizabeth Swann from POTC3. I made really cute treat bags that all the boys will be getting. They have a witch, skeleton, monster, black cat, creepy ghost girl, Frankenstein, and his bride.

I will post more later after the party when I have pictures and know what Kyle is dressed as. Have to finish setting up for it and Corey should be showing up soon. TTFN Ta ta for now.
