Halloween

Zach and I (okay, mostly just me) were very excited for our first Halloween in a house. We've both always been "apartment people" until this year and had honestly never, ever handed out candy to trick or treaters before. We ate it up! Literally, Baby and I ate a lot of the candy up on our own. We still managed to hand out three big bowlfuls to adorable little princesses, pirates, and ghosts before having to turn the lights out at 8:45pm when we ran completely out of candy. I love making memories like this with Zach; the fun, carefree moments are what makes this life so beautiful.
 
 A few pictures of the evening...
 
 
bowl #1 all ready to be handed out

warm peanut butter cookies filled our house with a festive, bring-on-the-holidays smell 

Some of you asked to see our pumpkins from this post...let me go ahead and warn you that we spent a total of about 6 minutes on these bad boys. Football was on tv so Z was on a schedule and I had clothes ready in the dryer....thus our rushed, but still fun, pumpkin spray-painting attempt. (the blue one is Zach's...I really want to replace it but fear it will hurt his feelings, so it stays)

Tiny's first Halloween "costume"...the magic 8 ball!

Hope you all had a great Halloween, full of candy and treats :)

  2. It was our first year in a house too! Unfortunately, I had class so I didn't get to be a part of it. Zac bought Halloween candy early, which of course got consumed by us. I don't think we got many trick or treaters because there was still quite a bit of candy left! I'm sad I didn't watch Nightmare before Christmas or the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, like I do every year :(

  4. The pumpkins are adorable! I love the blue one, tell hubs it is so unique! Tiny's costume is adorable, hehe.

    And it is such a great different feeling handing out candy from your own house because you really do miss out on the experience when you are in an apartment building!

  10. HA! Love your costume! You're too cute. Pregnancy really looks great on you.

    Hubby and I live in a condo so we don't get ANY trick or treaters. Every year I buy candy and we get MAYBE 1 or 2 kids and then I scarf the rest. This year, I opted out and didn't buy candy but ingredients for pumpkin cookies instead. Cookies > Candy when you're pregnant! haha

  11. Love your magic 8 ball - such a cute idea!! And all that candy - love the gummy body parts - fun! It really is the little moments like this....I'm sure you feel the same - seeing all the cute little kids and sweet babies all dressed up - it just makes me think about next year (and the holidays) and the ones to follow...I get so teary-eyed and giddy!! Your pumpkins are adorable....those tiny ones are awesome with the gold paint! And peanut butter cookies - yum!!! I've been on a pb kick and just scarfed down my breakfast of wheat toast and peanut butter!
    Happy November, Brittany!! This month is going to be so amazing for you and your family...I will continue to keep checking in for updates and to see when Tiny will make his debut!! :)
    Have a beautiful weekend, beautiful lady! And thank you so much for all the love and kindness! Xoxoxo
