Trick or Treat!

So, Halloween is a little different at our house. For specifics on that, you can check out Cole's blog. I mostly enjoy Halloween. However, from about 3pm to 5:30pm, I HATE Halloween. At least it was on a Saturday this year. That 2 1/2 hour time period is complete and total chaos at my house...Cole putting the finishing touches on the yard. Completing the setup. Getting the kids all costumed, makeup'd, and fed. Getting Cole all Makeup'd and helping him with whatever he needs. Going to show the grandparents (which is very important to I really don't mind that part. It just adds to the chaos. I don't survive very well in home based chaos). The inside of my house always looks like a tornado hit...a mess of makeup, brushes, costume pieces, fast food sacks, and the stray fry here and drives me NUTS!!!!

Luckily, that part doesn't last very long. The rest of our day and night was quite delightful.

I put Talia's hair up in curlers hoping for spiral curls that would last awhile. Despite the gel, the hairspray, and the hair dryer, her hair still didn't get completely dry in the 5 hours the curlers were in. So...the curls fell out in about an hour. Oh well...I guess next time I try to do it overnight.

He he he... I love your humor! Oh.. and the pictures. Talia was darling!

I thought your headhunter was so... cute huhumm... I mean awesome! You should be very proud (which I know you are). Even if that wasn't your goal for him in life. ;) lol

They look great! The decorations are fantastic. It looks like a lot of work went into it. Good luck with the clean up.:)

Cole did a great job. My kids and I had fun going through the setup.
