A Baby Shark Halloween!

A Baby Shark Halloween!

We had some Halloween ideas, but as it got closer to time to really gather supplies, we changed our minds and went with what Remi REALLY wanted: Baby Shark.

She’s obsessed with the song and video, so we were a shark family.

She LOVED putting on her shark jacket- I wish I had videoed it because she totally got that she was now baby shark and enjoyed it. (The teeth were pretty stiff felt and bothered her a little)

Of course, Daddy and Momma Shark joined in.

And we introduced Gigi and Mimi Shark!

Our town does a big Halloween- high school clubs set up on the walking trail and several churches do a trunk or treat. Well, it was POURING down rain, so everyone moved inside. I was so thankful that the kids still had a great time.

We were going to hit the high school, but the line was long outside and Remi isn’t great at waiting in line yet…so we just came to church.

It was fun to see a lot of our friends, including sweet Eden who helps in the nursery. Remi loved her unicorn outfit!

We waited in line getting candy a little bit, but then she just took off walking around. Thankfully, everyone was in a great mood (and we knew like half the gym), so people would sort of let her come and go in between lines and games and walking around.

She ate several pieces of the candy she got on the spot (What’s Halloween for if not to eat too much candy?!)

She loved this shark game! The people running this booth were dressed like pirates (I think? It was a blur!) and the kids had to “walk the plank” through shark infested waters to get their candy! So creative! Remi loved walking the plank. (We had joined back into line with our sweet friends Sophia and Lyndi! It was a great night)

We did manage to get a great picture of our whole shark family! Remi was too busy eating her sucker to smile.

I joked we were famous locally because the next morning in our big town Facebook group was this post asking for pictures of the shark family. ha! A friend tagged me and I was able to share our picture. I’m glad people enjoyed it.  We loved it and had a great time.


We weren’t out late- at like 6:45 Remi was acting like she’d had too much stimulation (too many people, sights, sounds, packed into a church gym) and we went home. But she keeps talking about when she was baby shark. We had a great Halloween!

Work Halloween: Mean Girls

Work Halloween: Mean Girls

A lot has changed at work this year. Relaxing our corporate culture and allowing for a little more fun (and more jeans! Yay for a relaxed dress code!)

With the changes, we were able to dress up for Halloween and pay towards a fundraiser for a nonprofit. Our team decided that since Halloween fell on a Wednesday, that we would wear pink!

We got several team members in on the fun!

We had Janis, Damien, The Plastics, and Kevin Gnapoor (the mathlete!)

Our team did an AWESOME job dressing the part!

We had to have a little Plastics photo shoot

And with our amazing Janis! She nailed it.

Spirit Week and More Fall Fun

Spirit Week and More Fall Fun

We had a very eventful week between Remi’s school having spirit week and just having some more fall fun.

We bought a pumpkin to paint with my life group but missed the party when Remi was sick, so we decided to paint it (over and over again thanks to washable finger paints!).

She LOVES painting this pumpkin. Keeping it until it rots because the paints just wash right off.

For spirit week, she had crazy hair day, but was much too excited to pose for a picture!

They also had a mismatch day and neon day (which I didn’t photograph), and then they got to wear costumes for a Halloween party!

I was worried about her wearing her real costume all day, so she wore her Minnie Mouse dress!  The cutest little mouse!

Friday was black and orange day! She was pretty excited.

We had a busy Saturday taking family pictures with Tyler’s family and then Remi missed her nap, so we just hung out at home (I was REALLY hoping for a pumpkin patch visit, but without a nap, it wasn’t a great idea).

Sunday, she wore her pretty Halloween dress!

And she CRACKED US UP taking pictures before school Monday morning. This outfit is from last year, but still fit great.

She was in a funny mood posing for her pictures.

We did more pumpkin painting, some 4 wheeler rides and lots of looking at deer photos from the game cameras with daddy.

Weekend Full of Fun

Weekend Full of Fun

When Daddy’s away…the girls will play!

Tyler went hunting for several days with some friends, and Remi and I had a fun weekend together.

I went to the bathroom for a minute and came out to her ON the counter (she used her tower step stool to climb up) and she had opened a banana and was helping herself to a bedtime snack. ha!

I bought some pom poms at Target and she has LOVED playing with them.  I gave her an ice cub tray and she made up a little game. Love her imagination!


We spent Friday evening at the mall and rode the little animals. She’s too fun!

She made me breakfast in her kitchen one morning…

And then she hung with her grandmas while I had a little fun.  While she played with Mimi, I went to a Zumba class with my friend Brandy. We both teach dance fitness, and one the instructors of this class was a former student! It was so neat to watch him teach! He was fabulous and it’s always fun to be a student again.

Then after Remi’s nap, she went to play with Gigi and I went to a coworker’s wedding! Paige was a beautiful bride!  And my coworkers Lindsey and Becca made great wedding dates. 🙂

We had a lot of fun together but we were happy when Daddy came back home.
