Happy November! Yesterday in Atlanta was super cold and windy, so we hung out inside in our PJs all day relaxing around the fire after a super fun (and long) Halloween. We had friends over on Friday for dinner and sweets before we headed out to go trick or treating. This year was so much different than last year, where Henry and his friends stayed in the wagon and I collected his candy. This year, Henry wanted to run to each house and was obsessed with ringing the doorbell as many times as possible and grabbing as much candy as his little hands could carry. He was even trying to go into people’s homes 🙂 Before Henry was born, I had seen these photos of the UP Halloween costume and I knew that one day he would dress up as Carl. Luckily he owned all parts of his costume and my husband made his “cane” out of PVC pipe, tennis balls and spray paint. It has definitely been the cutest one yet! Our dog Dixie slightly resembles Dug from the movie and they looked so cute together.
My mom and I decorated the “party room” as Henry calls it and made some treats and punch for the party. They were definitely the most fun to make and very festive. Henry loved showing all of our friends who came over the room and when we were decorating it he would say “wow, perfect! I love it!”
I already can’t wait for next year when we will have TWO kids to dress up 🙂 Also, there are only 7 Sunday’s before Christmas and 9 Sunday’s before our new baby joins our family!
