Halloween 2013

Wyatt and Kenley were super into Halloween this year. They loved looking at decorations as we drove through neighborhoods, practiced dressing up as all sorts of things all month long, and asked every single night if the next day was Halloween. Wyatt was VERY into carving pumpkins and was teamed up with Daddy. Together they cut, cleaned, drew a face, and made a very good looking jack-o-lantern with triangle eyes, nose, and a crooked smile with teeth. Kenley was VERY into WATCHING her teammate, Mommy, do the dirty work. She would not touch any of the messy stuff. Not even a seed. But she was very proud of our jack-o-lantern with triangle eyes and nose and a straight smile with teeth.

Wyatt changed his mind every day about what he wanted to be for Halloween, but settled on a Texas Tech football player (as I had planned). Chris got him special football player black stripes for under his eyes and that made his costume even more exciting. Kenley was a Texas Tech cheerleader in the cutest outfit ever that I scored on a facebook site from a lady that had handmade it.

We tried to get them to pose and all they wanted to do was go get candy!

So we did...

Cousin Peyton was the cutest bumble bee ever. She was also way too busy with candy to pose for me to take pictures. 

My mom makes chili every year and after we eat she gets her spot all set up on her front lawn to pass out treats (this year they did balls and slinkies). Here's Papa hanging out with the neighbors passing out candy. 

And after the kids made their rounds trick or treating, checked out their loot, and ate as much candy as we would let them, they were pooped. They ended the night watching a movie.

We dressed up the day before for Stroller Strides and I got this super cute picture of Kenley as Snow White. Wyatt was a fireman that day and he wore a construction worker vest with a fireman hat.

Pumpkin Patch

This year Halloween fell on a Thursday and we went to the Pumpkin Patch the Friday before. It ended up being the perfect day and time to go. Wyatt had been asking to go to the Storybook Ranch Pumpkin Patch every time we drove by the big blow up pumpkin they have. So we did and it was a great choice. There wasn't very many people there when we went so the kids got to run around, play, pick out pumpkins, and they had a blast. I got to try and get a few good pictures. Chris had the fancy camera and hopefully he got some good ones, but here's a few from my phone.

I told Wyatt to pose and this is the look I got. I think he's been watching Uncle Garrett and his friends pose for pictures. How is he old enough to try to look "cool" in pictures?!

Kenley was so excited she didn't know which direction to go.

Reagan was enjoying the perfect weather with a little nap and her super cute headband that I won on a blog I read.

There were 3 huge bounce house slides and obstacle courses and the kids LOVED them. They giggled the entire time. Mommy and Daddy might have taken a few turns down the big slide, as well. 

Kenley sure can keep up with big brother. If he can do it, she thinks she can. And most of the time she can. 

Mommy and Daddy

It's near impossible to get a picture with everyone facing the camera and smiling but I'm hoping Chris got a decent one. He will be able to fix up the lighting and all that, but here's what I got. Either way it was sweet memories. 

After the pumpkin patch we went over our friends, the Mikulas', house for jack-o-lantern shaped pizza and hung out while the kids watched a movie.

2 Months {Reagan}

Reagan Elle is 2 months old and...
10 lb 14 oz
20.75 in
She continues to be super easy going letting her big brother and sister love on her and get all in her space without fussing. Wyatt tells us how "cuuuuuute" she is every time he looks at her and follows that with "can we keep her?" Kenley is never far behind copying and calling her "cuuuuuute," too. Reagan is smiling more and more and we can even officially claim her smiles.
