Halloween and Chance's B-Day

Well, I have been SUPER busy lately and haven't had a SECOND to blog!!! It's killing me! So this post is actually a two for one :)

Halloween:
Well you guys already saw that Caycen was a cute little lion the weekend of Halloween and we went to the trunk or treat at Marshpoint.  It was so much fun (see previous post).  Here are some more pictures that I took of him in his cute little costume and in his skeleton jammies he got just for Halloween:




Halloween night we decided to just stay at home and hand out candy to the trick-or-treaters.  I had Baby C practice picking up candy from the bowl and everything! But by the time the trick-or-treating started, Caycen was EXHAUSTED.  He passed out and slept through the entire trick-or-treating period. 




Chance is so funny on Halloween! He set up the front and it was SUPER scary for all the kids.  Most of the trick-or-treaters were too scared to even come up and ring the doorbell so a lot of their parents did it for them.  Chance had a skeleton sitting at the door, a strobe light going, a zombie that crawls, a ghost that moves, a bloody head hanging, and even some scary halloween music playing.  Chance dressed up as a crazy doctor.  I would be scared too!!!! It was pretty hilarious though.



After the trick-or-treating was over, Baby C woke up and was so happy to see his Aunt Brooke there... he didn't even know he'd missed anything. 





Well, that was Caycen's first Halloween and he slept right through it :)



Chance's 27th Birthday:
So this year Chance turned 27 years old!!! I'm so sad that I didn't actually get to post on his birthday like I wanted to... I feel like such a horrible wife :(  That week was sooooooo busy though.  I mean, I didn't even have his birthday presents ready for him on his actualy birthday because we were so busy!

On the night before his birthday we went to his parents house for a birthday dinner for him and Brooke's boyfriend, Chris.  We had a delicious dinner and then they got to open presents.  Caycen helped his daddy too!  Then we celebrated with a little cake.


For Chance's birthday I decided that since we're trying to save some money, I would make his gifts for him.  Chance said he really didn't want anything, but how could I do that???  So I found a couple of cute ideas from Pinterest! 

The first thing I made was a box of dates.  I thought this was SO STINKIN' CUTE!  I printed out a ton of date ideas and put them in the jar, then used my cricut to put "Dates in a Box" on the front.  We talked about how we wanted to start doing a date night every other week, so I thought this was perfect for our date nights.  Now all we have to do is go to the jar and pull out a date idea and we don't even have to think about what to do. I'm so excited to start this!!!

The second thing I made him were some grill towels.  You know how the guys like to use the kitchen towels?? Or my husband likes to use these ugly blue towels that he gets from work and just stick them in his back pocket while grilling... well, problem solved! I went and bought a couple packs of plain white hand towels to use for grill towels.  I made some pictures on powerpoint and even used some UGA clipart that I found and printed them on printable iron-on transfers.  Then I ironed them onto the towels and sewed them on around the edges just to be sure that they wouldn't come off in the wash (because you know these towels will be getting dirty!!!).  This was such an easy project and Chance really loved them!!!


 Here is Chance opening his gifts :)

I am so thankful to have such a wonderful husband in my life.  God has truly blessed me and my family! I love you Rooskie!!!!

I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL weekend!!!! I am definitely enjoying my day off with Baby C today!
