Does anyone else sort of feel like October was a blur? I sure do! We packed a good bit into the month, but we still didn’t manage to carve a pumpkin. I did tell Allen that he probably needed to bond with BK over pumpkin carving sometime this week. Kidding.
We start out this month with a trip to Boo at the Zoo, we’re huge fans of the Birmingham Zoo, so we like to attend whatever fun they’re planning. We definitely looked at the radar before the trip, and we actually thought the rain would miss us at the zoo. Wrong. While on the hay ride (that has exactly one spot to turn around) we were stuck in a little thunderstorm. Thunder, lightening, torrential down pour, we were soaked! Thankfully, Allen had stayed covered with baby Jud, and BK had an extra set of clothes in the car. As for me? Well, it was a cold ride home!
We also went on BK’s first field trip this year! Nanny came over and babysat baby Jud, and BK and I hit up the pumpkin patch with her classmates. I rarely get alone time with this girl anymore, so it was a fun time with just the two of us.
We had a fall festival at church and both kiddo’s had the best time!
BK celebrated Farmer’s Day at school last Thursday by dressing up like a farmer and having a fun little class party.
And another party with her dance class. There were 7 Elsa’s at the party. That’s right, seven. I just laughed at the all the Elsa’s, but I know that she wouldn’t have it any other way. Sweet girl was so proud of her Elsa dress with real “sequels” (sequins).
Friday was a big day at our house. Allen decided last minute to throw a Halloween party. He said, “just get some pizzas and make it simple.” Which is crazy, I don’t do simple, however, I will do pizza! I dressed BK and Jud up before the party because I knew things had the potential to get hectic, and I didn’t want to miss a shot of Queen Elsa and Olaf.
I ordered his little hat from Etsy, and embellished a white romper for his costume. Super easy.
Elsa basically serenaded with Frozen songs the entire day and froze everything she came into contact with, including baby Jud.
I failed big time at the party picture taking. We had the party outside and it got dark way quicker than I anticipated. We had about 40 of our friends and family over for the occasion. The kids all went trick or treating on a hay ride, we roasted marshmallows, they painted pumpkins, ate s’mores, and shared lots of laughs.
I’ve never loved Halloween so much. Truly, it was the best day. I loved seeing how excited BK was as she trick or treated from house to house and downed M&M’s in between ringing door bells.
Here’s a little peek of the party (I’m 99% sure this is our new annual tradition):
Hope you all had a fun-filled October as well!
