Turkey Day Fun

Turkey Day Fun

Before the main Thanksgiving event, we got to have a little more fun!

Remi recovered from the flu (and after a few well days at home, since the doc said it’s super contagious), she was ready for her school party!

They always do the cutest pictures! Our little Indian!

They set up a huge big table, complete with real glass plates and glasses for the kids.

I was home sick, so Mimi saved the day going to her party. She had been talking about us going to her “chicken day” lunch, so I know she wanted us there for turkey day.

We also went to my dad’s nursing home dinner. They always do a really nice meal for residents and their families. Remi had to help feed grandpa! It was sweet!

And we had to snap our picture. Love my daddy so much.

It’s wonderful to celebrate the things we are thankful for!

The fabulous Jade Graves Photography got these wonderful images of my loves.  Now to choose which ones to print?!


Trunk or Treat

Trunk or Treat

We had a great Halloween! We leaned into Remi’s love of Paw Patrol and went as the whole gang.

We got ready at home and had some extra time, so we played outside. Our Marshall was looking mighty cute!

We were Chase and Skye.  I made our vests from just standard fleece vests, but I bought the tags and hats on Etsy.

The wings also came from the lady who made the pup tags. Remi LOVES having wings to use for dress up.

Mimi was Rubble and Caitlyn got in the fun as Everest.

Gigi (as Rocky) was already at church helping to set up, but we were happy to find her!

It was realllly cold, so our church moved the Trunk or Treat inside the gym. Still SO fun to see all our friends and get candy!

Here’s the whole Paw Patrol Halloween crew!

Each booth had a big thing of candy. She really loved when she got to choose her own treats.

These are Gigi’s life group girls. They are so sweet to our Remi. They had a cute farm booth.

But the highlight was this stick horse to ride- it was Tyler’s from his childhood!

And our Chick-fil-a set up there giving our cows. She loved that, too.

Toy Story was by far the most popular costume. We saw LOTS of Buzz and Woody boys. But we loved hanging with our friends, who were Jessie, Woody, and Buzz.

We had so much fun together! I’m thankful for a community that comes together for things like this.

I always say I love our town the most on the 4th of July, Halloween and the Christmas parade. It just feels like small town perfection.


Halloween Potluck

Halloween Potluck

We gathered our friends for a little Halloween potluck. We made easy snack foods for dinner and let the kids play- bouncy house, football, swing set.

And of course, we had to dress up!  We are the Paw Patrol (Skye, Marshall and Chase)

IMG_2676

With Rubble and Rocky! (Caitlyn will join us for actual Halloween, too!)

The kids painted pumpkins….

And bobbed for apples (which isn’t as fun or easy as it was when I was a kid! ha!)

Remi’s masterpiece!

We wanted to do smores but didn’t want to make a big bonfire, so we had a food-safe roasting log on our grill (our fire pit got a hole in it). Staci was an expert marshmallow roaster for the kids.

We played until dark and ended the night with 4-wheeler rides around the yard. So much fun!
