Halloween 2010

Our weekend was pretty laid back. Saturday we did our weekend chores and hit up WalMart. We should have gotten more candy because we ran out so FAST last night. We would have no trick or treaters and then all of a sudden 10-15 kids at the door! And I think most of them were not from our neighborhood. It was fun opening the door and seeing all the kiddos in their costumes!

Terence and I worked the 2 year old room at church again Sunday. We had 3 girls and a little boy. I always feel worn out afterwards! It's the room they need help in...maybe because nobody else wants to work that age range...ha..ha..!!! We also got to take some cat naps, catch up on laundry, and we carved our first pumpkin!

Here are some pictures of our weekend:

Connor is wearing his homemade astronaut helmet. Terence and I decided he needed a helmet last minute so we took a plastic pretzel jar, some silver tissue paper, black sharpie, and some logos I printed off the internet and there you have it! It's was really big on him, but cute for the photos and I don't know how realistic it looks, but it's what we came up with last minute!
"Houston we have a problem!"
The helmet was hard to keep up on his head
He looks exhausted & I think he was tired of playing dress up
It was mid 70's yesterday so he didn't last long...his costume was HOT!
I love his face in this picture for some reason it cracks me up!

All done!
"Happy Halloweeeeen!!!"
Hope you all had a great one!
I can't believe it's officially "THE HOLIDAYS" and Christmas is adorning all the shelves in stores now! Oh how time flies and I want to enjoy every second!
I'm praying hard for all my friends who are longing to have their own little babies to play dress up with. I waited a LONG time to dress up my baby.....and I know there are so many out there who are still longing to celebrate this time of year with a baby love. It's hard for so many people who are hurting without a child to celebrate with. I remember the feeling and reading and watching so many people who's lives carried on, but mine seemed to stand still. I hope this post doesn't bring bitterness, but hope that someday too you will have your baby to celebrate the holidays with! Praying and wishing and hoping for you all.....
