Happy Halloweekend!

I know it's November now, but I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween weekend! I know we did! :)
Here are some of the highlights:
[Saturday night was the wedding reception for our cousins, who had a destination wedding back in August, it was a "Spooktacular" reception]
 The Bride and Groom aka Mario and Princess Peach [insert Super Mario Brother's theme music here - do do do do do do do]
 Bryan and me aka scary zombie and Snookie [my other costume fell through so this was the obvious replacement costume, it was fun though]
 He's always gotta be the scary one!
 Some of my favorite costumes [James the photographer aka Alan from "The Hangover"]
 The bride's dad and his girlfriend aka Paula Dean and Ron White
 Our best friend Steven and his girlfriend aka a penguin and banana [who knew the two could fall in love?! :)]

Sunday was spent with family, including my sister who had the pleasure of taking home the "electronic baby" for her Family and Consumer Science class. Hanna said, "Are you sure you want to be a mom? This is tough stuff!" I just giggled. "Yes Hanna, I'm most definitely positive."

Sunday evening was frightfully fun! Bryan's family gets together every year on Halloween and carries on a tradition of making a "Witch's Brew" (yummy stew) like his Grandma did every year. After our bellies were full and happy, it was time to take Sophia Trick or Treating!
 "Scary faces!"
Christine and Kim [my sister and mother in law] Love them both!
And last but certainly not least, our little "Strawberry Shortcake"! :) She just melts all of our hearts! I mean, how could she not?!

Our "Halloweekend" went by entirely too quick but was fabulous! I hope you all had a safe and eventful weekend also! What did you and your family dress up as?


  1. Ok Alan costume from the Hangover = Absolutely AMAZING! LOVE IT!

  2. I agree. I love the Alan costume. Bryan looks pretty gross! : ) Guess that's the point and sophia looks so cute.

  3. this is so cute! and that is literally the best strawberry shortcake i have ever seen. i thought about being snooki this halloween, but not sure i could get such a high quality poof!

    love your blog :)

  4. That is such a fun idea for a reception! I love it! And being a mom is tough but wonderful stuff! You will love it when the time comes :o) We didn't do a single thing for Halloween this year. Can you blame us? Sidney did have a cute skeleton and "my first Halloween" outfit though!

  5. Sounds like you had a lot of fun--Strawberry Shortcake takes the cake, I think. :)

  6. Jessie - Right?! I was CRACKING up! He asked if I'd join his wolf pack! LOL

    Kristina - did you see his picture from last year? What is up with that boy and wanting to look scary?

    e day - I think so too, but I'm the auntie so I'm biased! I kept getting told my poof needed to be higher, I said listen people, I'm not THAT Jerseylicious! :)

    Miriam - Isn't it?! You and Sidney are so beautiful together! How's the Mr. adjusting to baby life? Do you think it's harder for dads or about the same?

    va_grown - hahaha she DOES take the cake! :) in my eyes at least! :)

  7. I know i've said it before, but imma say it again.. she is so darn ADORABLE!
