Cramming in Halloween

To say that we have been preoccupied over the past 6 weeks would be an understatement.  We spent as much time as we possibly could with Grant's father before he passed away.  That was priority.

During those weeks, all the Halloween fun passed us by.  The majority of our Fall/Halloween decorations are still packed away.  We didn't make it to ZooBoo.  We had to cancel our big Halloween party.  We didn't make it to the pumpkin patch, which is something we look forward to every year.  This weekend was our last chance, and it rained the entire time.  We have yet to carve our pumpkins, roast pumpkin seeds, or bake Halloween cookies.

We did, however, manage to cram in some Halloween fun over the weekend.

On Friday night, we went to my sister's house for a Halloween dinner.  My mom made us all a special Halloween dinner, then handed out treat bags to the kids.  We had so much fun that we decided to make it a yearly tradition!

Yesterday evening was supposed to be the date of our annual Halloween party.  Grant decided to cancel it just before his dad passed, because we didn't have time to prepare.  Instead, we invited a few close friends over for an informal Halloween party.  It ended up being a fun night!

There were kids everywhere and some of our favorite people showed up!

We even had a skunk in our house.  Good thing she was cute.

We ate and talked  while the kids played.  Everybody stayed late.  Even though we were having fun, it was evident that the littlest guests were worn out.

We didn't have a big party, but we still had a fun evening!

Now?  We're down to the last few days of Halloween fun. We have a lot to do! I feel bad that my kids have missed out on Halloween activities this year, but they don't seem to mind.  They have 3 very fun and busy days ahead of them!

  1. You feel like you're not doing much, but you're still doing more than a lot of people. As long as the kids dress up and go trick-or-treating...isn't that all they really care about? We got pumpkins from Kroger and carved them tonight. So, you still have time even if you don't make it to a pumpkin patch. Hope you guys are doing well. Hugs!
