Our Halloween 2016:

Happy Monday Friends! 

I am finally getting around to posting about Halloween and let me tell ya, this year was one for the books! It was so magical and fun with the kids at the ages they are. We truly had such an amazing night with them!

We kicked off Halloween weekend with me finally getting to decorate inside and a little more outside & finally making it to the Pumpkin Patch to get our pumpkins {parents of the year waiting until the last minute...} And because we waited so late to go when we arrived to the first Patch, not a single pumpkin... Not-a-ONE... seriously! oops! So on to the next one we went! Thankfully they had pumpkins! Phew, because we had a panicked little girl in the backseat freaking out {I should have brought momma some wine with us...}. Anyhow, the kids had a blast running through the pumpkin patch trying to find the biggest most perfect pumpkins to carve into some good ol jack-o-lanterns! 

We then headed home and they went to town getting the goop out! 
We baked some seeds and called it a night! 

And just like any Halloween Weekend in Jax it means it is Florida/Georgia time! So we did the same thing we have been doing my entire life... Headed downtown to tailgate with my best friends, just adding in dropping off the kiddos at my parents beforehand! And a Gators WIN!! Woooo! 

 Halloween came and it of course started with me in the hospital with a couple of GI Procedures {I have a whole new round of procedures that will be happening as they are looking for some things and will be starting me back on infusions soon}. Bu after I got home and rested we were ready for a fun filled festive night as a family! My parents, Aunt Christie, Uncle Yaya & Aunt Sarah all came over to celebrate with us! 

Charli has been obsessed with Tinkerbell for sometime now so I felt it was only fitting that recreating Neverland this year was a must! It of course was absolutely perfect and the kids costumes fit their personalities so perfectly! Charli sprinkling pixie dust everywhere she went and Crew trying to fight off every "scary" thing they saw by saying "arrrrrrrrrrr- maney" with his sword was priceless! 

Thank you to my Uncle for making the kids Neverland Ship this year {seriously he's the best!} All I did was paint it and make the sails. If you want to see what he did last year for us you can check out Our Halloween 2015

The kids had an absolutle blast Trick-or-Treating this year! This was our first year in our neighborhood for Halloween and it is truly amazing! We couldn't imagine living anywhere else and are so lucky to be here! It truly was such a magical night! 

I have loved seeing everyone's Halloween posts & costumes! 
Now on to all things Thanksgiving!
