Happy Halloween!

First of all... WOW! Thank you Amanada for introducing me and thank you all so much for visiting our blog! It was so exciting to see comments. :) I am so glad to be part of the DOC ( espcecially now that I know what it means! Ha!!) Thank you all so much! I really look forward to "getting to know" you all!!

Friday we had Emma's Fall Party in her classroom. It was my first official duty as Homeroom Mother! I was pretty excited!! So here's a look at how it looked before the chaos. :)
 After the party in the classroom, the whole school had a Mega Party for a fundraiser they wrapped up recently. Here's Emma and Nicholas (our neighbor's grandson - he told our neighbor that Emma is his girlfriend and when he was 13 he was going to kiss her. Oh goodness!!)
 They got to go into the inflatable room since they sold 10 items! WooHoo! Thank you family!!

 Right after school,  we had our school carnival. Nana helped out in the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom game. Sorry, Nana! I always get you with your eyes closed!!

 Then, as if that wasn't enough excitement for one day, we met up with Ella and Rylan and their family for the Razorback Homecoming Parade.

 They had the best time! Nana, this picture is for you - you can see Aiden marching. So cute!!
 This is what I would call Holy Crap a Moly. Aiden actually turned down the first couple of guys who tried to give him candy. But how can you turn this down? Uh... ya can't!
 He even got a Hog nose!
 So Emma ended up with 60 pieces of candy and Aiden had 70. Matt thought that was worth $10 each. Matt and I are sooooo not on the same page about the candy issue. He is NOT a candy person anyway. He is more a steak and potatoes kind of guy. I was practically born with a spatula in one hand and an a bag of sugar in the other. I am like a 4th generation sweet tooth and Aiden was proudly following in my footsteps. Except he was born with a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup in each hand! Ha! He has been doing so great without all of that, we are just terrified to reintorduce it and figure out how to make it OK as part of a healthy diet. And also make sure he learns that it is ok in moderation and that you have to cover it. Matt is really scared that he will just think that if we let him have a fun size Hershey bar on Halloween that he will think it is ok to have one anytime and if anyone gives it to him.  So that is our major delimma for the season.
 Saturday, we got to go back to the Ozark Corn Maze with the JDRF for a Healthy Halloween Party. We got to meet some more families and that is always so helpful and comforting!
 Darn corn maze. It took us FOR-EV-ER!
 They had a little petting zoo.
 And we took a little hayride to the pumkin patch.
And then it was off to cheer on the Hogs!! Woo Pig Sooie!!
