Halloween Weekend

Friday October 29th, Jason and I had off work. Our church was having a Fall Festival. Our car was in the trunk or treat part of the festival, so we had to wash our car and get ready for it. We made our car's theme the Florida Gators. While Jason was washing the car, our cat tower came in. I put it together and the cat absolutely loves it. The dog was a little jealous...but he has his own comfy doggy bed!

After the kids got home, we ate dinner and then headed out to the Fall Festival. Over 8,000 people came! The kids had fun getting candy, singing a couple of songs for the children's choir, and jumping around in the bounce houses. The girls and I caught a ride home at 8:30 pm with the Yanko's since Kaylyn had her last swim meet the next morning and we had to be there at 7:30 am. Jason didn't get home until almost 10 pm.

Kaylyn placed 2nd in the Butterfly stroke...I don't even think I could do it anymore! We didn't leave the swim meet until 11:30 and we headed over to Fred Lee Park for the end of the season swim party. Kaylyn got the award for competitive :-)

The next night was Halloween, so the girls got dressed up again (I sure got my money's worth out of these costumes). Then they went around the neighborhood with Daddy and got even more candy! I sat outside giving candy to the kids. We only went through 2 out of the 3 bags of candy from Sam's Club. There were a little bit fewer kids this year...probably because it was a school night???

I took the extra bag of candy to work and we still have two big halloween buckets full of candy that the girls have gotten over the last week.
