Much Ado About Monday {No.132}


I can't believe it is November already and Halloween is over. Soon it will be Thanksgiving and then the countdown to Christmas will begin, and I cannot wait!! Last week was insanely busy as we prepared for the spook-tacular day, but the business was worth it because this weekend was a blast!

We started the Halloween weekend off with our annual trip to Zoo Boo at the Houston Zoo. It is always a ton of fun for the kids to play festive games, decorate a pumpkin and of course see all of their favourite animals. We have gone every year since Jaydn was a baby and now five years later and can't imagine us not continuing the tradition.

After a fun day at Zoo Boo, we headed over to Lydia's house for a fun Halloween dress-up party, the kids had a blast dressing up, eating all of the Halloween themed treats and getting to play some fun games, including a ghostly pinata.

Saturday was, of course, Halloween, so we woke up early and got to work on carving our pumpkins.

This year my kids dressed up as traditional Halloween characters; a witch, pumpkin, black cat and Frankenstein, so our pumpkins were carved to match their costumes.

After our pumpkins were finished we got ourselves ready for a fun evening of Tricking and Treating. A perfect Halloween weekend to be sure! :)

You were all busy as well, sharing some amazing posts. We so enjoy seeing what you have to share with us each week and every week it gets harder and harder to choose our favourites. But, you gotta do what you gotta do so here they are.
