Shower The People You Love With Love

On October 4th, Pat & I hosted a bridal shower for Maryse!

It was held at the Lakewood Community Center in Vidor.

We went with a 'country sheek' theme.

Also known as burlap & mason jars :)

We played a couple games during the shower.
This one was called 'Put a Ring on It!'

And this one was 'What's in Your Purse?'

After the games, Maryse opened her presents.

She got lots of great stuff!

She had a really great turnout, including

of course, her mom & Mawmaw Helen

my mom

and my best friend Jessica.

The shower turned out great (if I do say so myself) & I was so happy that Pat & I were able to throw it for her!

Happy Halloween

A few days before Halloween, just as we usually do, we went to the St. Catherine's pumpkin patch to pick out a few pumpkins to paint & carve.

And while we were there, we ran into Alex's preK teacher, Ms. Linda!

Later that afternoon, the Gladhills came over & we painted pumpkins in the driveway.

And later that night, the kids carved pumpkins in the kitchen.

Alex carved the word HULK into his pumpkin & painted it green.

And Addy chose to carve a typical jack-o-lantern. Because that's what you're SUPPOSED to carve in a pumpkin!

On Halloween night, we went to the Gladhills house & went trick or treating in their neighborhood.

Alex dressed up as Hulk.

And Addy dressed up as a tiger. Rrroar!

Taking a short break to check out & sample their loot!

It was a fun night of trick or treating with friends & the kids made out like bandits!
