Happy Halloween

For the first time in three Halloweens, we are not Star Wars characters.  I still like for them to coordinate, but I let them choose.  This year they decided on the Avengers, a popular theme this Halloween.
I was going to be Black Widow, but the costume was spandex....I don't mix with spandex.

 After making our rounds to family, we went trick or treating.
Earlier today, we had a Halloween party with festive food, games, and activities.  Thanks to Heather and Amanda for inviting us!!

Lucas' 6th Birthday

The boys are really into Ninjago right now.  It goes without saying, but I found some cute party ideas on Pinterest for this theme. 

I know it's cliche, but I CAN'T believe he's SIX!

Lucas' birthday party was scheduled on his actual birthday, but we had to reschedule it.  The night before his birthday he had an allergy issue and he was having trouble breathing.  After several breathing treatments and a visit to the doctor, we were advised to change the date.  He was devestated, but we knew there was no other choice.  It's no fun to be sick on your birthday!

To him, it wasn't his birthday until his party.  He couldn't wait!

Happy Birthday, Lucas!  You make me laugh everyday.  We are so blessed to have you as a son!
