Halloween 2014

We went with the Batman theme this Halloween and we have been living in costume since we got them.
 Kinley actually got 2 batgirl costumes because we ordered one that the shipping kept getting delayed and delayed until we ordered a second one, only to then have the first one come. 
 Just further confirmation that I should just make the costumes. 
 This is my first year in a while not to make one and it was kind of sad but, I just didn't have the time! But, they sure looked cute.

 We went to the Fall Festival at church on the 28th. This is the first year it hasn't been on Halloween night. Each year we park over at Pops & Grams and walk to the church. This year, we came with our army of Pops, Gram, Minnie, Alex, Honey & Boss. 
 It was so great having them there. Extra eyes are so helpful in the sea of thousands of people and Kinley and Ty just get so excited to be with them. 
 And we got a bat-family picture. 
 Even though its hard to see Ty...he is there.

On Halloween night we did not have any real plans except for going first to trick-or-treat at Honey & Boss's house first. 
 A few friends decided to start there too and it was like old times to me trick-or-treating in their neighborhood.
  IMG_4431 Ty batman? or a thug? I am thinking his choice of the beanie combined with his "posture" changed his costume all-together. 
 I couldn't stop laughing.

Pretty much anyone who lives around there went to this one court block party to trick or treat and it was definitely a happening place. 
 We even got to see Aslynn, Hudson and Ryder there too! 
 Aslynn borrowed Kinley's other Batgirl costume and they were just the cutest together.
Then we headed over to Stacee & Ryan's neighborhood to trick or treat some more and sing Happy Birthday to Leslie who's birthday is on Halloween.

October photo dump

Here are a few other things we did in October...

We've all been supporting Aunt Minnie like crazy.  
She has a new design business and her latest endeavor is monogramming and we are constantly wearing her stuff.  
If you don't follow @mendykayedesigns on Instagram, stop right now and go do it.

 Even though its hard to get up by 6:30 some mornings to wake up Kinley after being up nursing at night, I love it when we are the only ones awake and I get to have her all to myself and sit down to eat breakfast together and pick her brain.
 Kinley & Ty both got their school pictures back and I love how both of them turned out.

Because Dylan still is not a huge fan of the car seat, when we pick up Kinley from school we park and get everyone out and walk up to get her instead of waiting in the car pick up line. 
 Ty loves this because there is a huge rock outside the school that he asks to climb on everyday. 
 Dad went out of town one weekend with Pops, Gram, Minnie and Alex to visit Aunt Deb in Kansas. 
 Kinley and Ty spent the night at Honey's house one night. 
We watched church at home that weekend and Kinley was super excited to take communion with our homemade grape juice from grapes in our juicer. 
She even made this sign for Ben. 
 It says "I hope my dad comes back soon." 

Ryland turned 3 and had the most fun Spiderman birthday party with the coolest superhero training course. 
 These three spidey-boys melt my heart.

All the excitement was just too much for RyRy 

Honey went to eat lunch at school with Kinley and she took her by the library to see her Flounder storybook pumpkin
