Happy Halloween!!

We had a great Halloween! Our families came here for a yummy but quick pizza meal and then we headed out to trick or treat. My father in law got his tractor and trailer all ready so we could hayride our way through the neighborhood.(Thanks Opi!) It is always so much fun! We had a werewolf, an Indian warrior, a sailor, Spiderman, the red Angry Bird, Sonic, a little witch and a knight. They ran to every door and loved every minute! The only bad part is that we had to cut it shorter than we would like because it was a school night. (Poor teachers tomorrow!!)
Anyway, here are some pictures from our fun evening!!
My little trick or treaters

Cooper's teacher/our neighbor Mrs. Miller-
We love her!

My sweet Mama dressed as a witch--she will do anything to make her grandkids smile.
They loved it all the lashes, the teeth, the wig and the warts!! They adore her-- I do too!

Ready to roll!!

Colton's 1st Buck

My hubby is one proud Daddy! He took the boys hunting this weekend and Colton shot his first buck! It is an 8 pointer and a big ol' boy. Colton was so excited!! He said, "It fell right in it's tracks." In other words, he made a great shot! Way to go Colty!

Colton, Opi, Cody and Cooper
 As soon as the guys got home, we called my Dad. He was waiting eagerly to come see Colton and congratulate him!

 I love this last picture and I really love that my hubby thought to take it!! It is of Colton talking to me on the phone when he called to tell me his big news. I love the sweet smile on his face!
So proud of my boy!!

Cooper's successful hunt

Colton likes to hunt but Cooper LOOOVES to hunt. He is still too young to shoot his first buck like his big brother did, but he did get to shoot a javelina! That was just fine with him. He was so excited! He said, " I smoked him Mama!" Oh my boys and their hobbies! Like father, like son!

Way to go Coops!

Fill in the Blank Friday

 Happy Friday! I gotta start today off by wishing my wonderful parents a Happy 39th Anniversary!! I am so lucky to have them and am so proud to be their daughter! Have a great day Mama and Daddy!!

Okay now I am linking up with Lauren for...
1. When I was a kid I wanted to be an astronaut and a teacher when I grew up.
2. As an adult, my dream job would be  stay at home Mama. I feel so blessed that I get to live my dream!

3. W hen I was younger I wanted to be just like my mom .

4. The childhood Halloween costume that I remember most was when I was a  a genie. It was a really cute costume but I remember it most because I wore if for like three years in a row. I didn't grow much those years ;).

5. My favorite childhood toy was  Cabbage Patch Kids. I had five of them and loved them. My room was even completely decorated in Cabbage Patch Kids too.

6. The time I got into the biggest amount of trouble when I was a kid was when I ...I was such a worrier with an overactive conscience so I really followed the rules pretty much all of the time. I think the worst things I would do was get in trouble in class for giggling and not being able to stop. I was sent into the hall many times for this.

7. I get daily inspiration from   my family, friends, the good Lord and other bloggers.

Have a great day!

A few pictures from the week

 Here are a few random pictures from our week!

This first one is my baby being cute, in a Halloween shirt, hanging out with me on Monday...
Adoraboo!! =)
 Poor Colton had to have some dental work done on Wednesday. He brushes well and has been seeing the dentist every six months since he was 3 but according to the dentist, he is prone to decay. He took after me with that. Sorry Colty! Anyway, he had to have sedation and have a tooth extracted, get one crowned and have another filled. He did so well and I loved that when they brought him back to him he had all these stickers on him. There was one for everything he had done. One even said "Warning-teeth, lips, tongue asleep!"  He was such a tough guy as usual!!

This week was Red Ribbon Week at school and Wednesday's theme was  "Crazy about being Drug Free."  Here are the big boys in their crazy socks and hats. So fun!

On Thursday, Carter has his party at school and they were allowed to dress up. My sweet little man had zero desire to put on his costume so it was struggle to get him dressed. But once we got to his class and he saw his friends dressed up, he loved it! They trick or treated through the church office and I am told he was pretty popular. I love him in his costume. So stinkin' cute!!!!
My little sailor giving me his cheese face

Carter and his buddy Batman
Okay, that is it for now. =)

Haunted house

Nope, we didn't go to one. But we did color and put one together! My mother in law bought the boys a super cute cardboard haunted house and some big markers.  The boys had a ball. They took their time and colored it so neatly and were so proud of their project! They did a great job and enjoyed playing in it while it lasted! =)

Hanging out in the hay

Here are few more pictures from the corn maze that we went to on Saturday. There were some big bales of hay lined up and the boys loved jumping from bale to bale. Then they just laid on the hay and hung out in the shade. Great photo opportunity for me. =)
