This Monday morning, I have a Halloween hangover!! ha! It's been an eventful halloween week and it is so nice to be home this morning to recover and regroup. I think the kids need it too! It started off on Thursday when the kids had their pumpkin parties at school. It was an easy morning to get the kids dressed since they got to wear their costumes. Getting them into the car was a different story because I couldn't find Landon's cape to his Robin costume. Oh well!

Friday afternoon, I dressed the kids up to head downtown for the trick or treating there. The weather was perfect and thankfully we got a great parking spot and it was an easy adventure. Kennedy got scared at several 'scary' costumes, but other than that, she caught onto the trick or treating pretty quick.

My mom came over on Saturday morning to play in a tennis tournament with me and we did great! We won our division and saw some good tennis. Lance kept the kids all morning and I am not sure who had more fun! As soon as we got home, we got dressed as quickly as we could to head over to a halloween party that we were invited to at the Hunt's house. It was such a great layout and an awesome group. They had a large alligator jumpy that was the biggest thing I have ever seen! The kids were having a ball! Then there were shifts on the hay ride to go trick or treating throughout the neighborhood. Kennedy didn't participate so we made another loop on foot with the entire family so me, lance and my mom could join in together to watch the kids trick or treat. By far my favorite thing this halloween since the kids LOVED it! Also, having the Matt Tyler family join us made it special and fun!

After trick or treating, it was time to head home to put the kids to bed so Lance and I can attend an adult costume party at Tiffany Baldwin's house. We went last year and had a blast and looked forward to it again this year. I, personally, was exhausted so it was a quick stay for us, but it was still fun seeing everyone all dressed up!

On Sunday, I continued to play in the tennis tourney while Lance left for Dallas to attend the Cowboys football game and the Texas Rangers game. My mom watched the kids while we both got to 'play'! It was a fun Halloween and I definitely look forward to what next year will bring!
