Halloween 2012

Our family tradition has always been to go to my Grandparents house with the rest of my family to trick-or-treat in her subdivision, hand out candies, and eat tons of yummy food while fellowshiping with our loved ones. The last two years have not been any different for our family even though we live in a different area. Last year, Bryar was way to small to fit in any type of costume so we headed over late and cuddled the entire time. This year was much different and filled with lots of brother/sister cuddles!
It took me forever to figure out what I wanted Charli Beth and Bryar to dress up as. But once Charli decided on Dorothy, my decision for Bryar was soon made as well. While I was shopping at the local Lil Angels Consignment Sale I found a dorothy costume for super cheap, and then (BAM!) I found a lion! Perfecto. They were both in perfect condition and a great price, so I could not pass them up! Then even better I found glittery slippers too!

Charli Beth has never been much on candy or trick-or-treating. I know what kind of kid is she? But honestly, it makes me happy. We typically always walk our row of houses then head back to Maw's to hand out candy. I thnk this makes Charli feel "big" or something along the lines of.

She was so sweet all day calling Bryar her "little lion" and taking great care of him when he would tumble over due to his huge belly. (Ha!)

 After lots of good food and family time, we headed back home way later than we meant to finish up homework and get ready for the next day! Charli was exteremly excited about Halloween this year, and said it was the best one ever. Hopefully, we will continue having successful Halloween celebrations and family time in the years to come  - along with a year of Daddy not having to work so we can join the fun too.

OH my GOSH! I am dying over this! This is such a great idea and I feel such a love for the Wizard of Oz because I lived in Kansas for a while. You should be Glenda the Good Witch!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
