WE LOVE OCTOBER!!!!
This month has been JAM PACKED with Halloween Fun! We have had a FABULOUS month I must say! We enjoy the Halloween weather, the decorations, movies, haunted houses, carving pumpkins, celebrations, dressing up, CANDY, well pretty much EVERYTHING about HALLOWEEN!!!!
Lets Begin with the Beginning of October :)
The Halloween celebration began with the celebration of Laurie's Birthday on October 11th! Grandma Robinson planned some super fun games for us all to play, most of them with a Halloween theme. (I will soon have a post on JUST Minute to Win It games that we have played, so those pics will come later!)

Then on October 19th Grandma Robinson threw a SUPER FUN Little Goblin Party for her Grand kids! What a wonderful Grandma she is, she even got all dressed up for the party! She had games, a little photo shoot, a pinata, an orange themed lunch, sugar cookie decorating, and more! Brooke had a great time! I think the cookies were her favorite :)

On Saturday while Brooke was napping my Mom and I worked on this wreath that Sue and Laurie showed me how to make. I am happy with how it turned out, I just kinda wish I had not put them so close together. Anyway this is how it turned out. My Halloween Wreath!

Then we carved our little family of Pumpkins! We are all very happy with how they turned out :)

Off to the Trunk Or Treat on Friday, Oct 29th! Brookie and I dressed up this year, Daddy did not dress up. I feel bad that he is not represented, he was there tho and we love Daddy. Here is Brooke the Monkey and Mommy the Cave woman!

Halloween Eve Brooke and I drove out to Rincon Indian Reservation where Daddy got a job as a Reserve Firefighter! Daddy was on shift and they just happened to be throwing a Super Spooky Haunted House at the station for the Reservation. Brooke and I were invited to attend so we took up the opportunity! It was SO fun to see where Daddy is now working, the station is BEAUTIFUL, and each of the guys we meet were super nice! They threw quite an awesome Haunted House! Brooke and I had a great Halloween with Daddy!

Kip and I have had this spider for 4 years now! We got it our first Halloween we were married. We randomly started hiding it in places that one another would find it, first off freak each other out, but it has also become a fun way to let one another know in the middle of a day that we were being thought about and are loved! We have gotten very creative in our hiding spots I must say. I hope that this little guy NEVER gets lost and always gets found. I hope he is there on our 50th Wedding Anniversary hiding in our cake :) Here he is! I suppose he needs a name? Any ideas?

Looks like you had a great month of Halloween fun. That spider hiding made me laugh because Danny and I did the same thing with a stuffed football. Ours lasted for maybe a year.

I really don't know how your daughter could get any cuter, but every time I peak back at your blog, it seems to happen! I LOVE the little curls in her hair. TO DIE FOR! Looks like October was a blast for you guys and you make one hot little cave momma. :)

Looks like you had a GREAT October ! Lots of fun ! I'd like to help with naming the spider, but am afraid you might not like my suggestions :)

Wow girl! What a great post! This must have taken you quite some time. I love October too. I never much cared for it before, but this year I REALLY enjoyed it. The pumpkin patch was a blast and I am so glad we did that. Brooke looked adorable. The goblin party was totally cute. How fun! All of it! Spider name...let me think on that....

Liz said...

I love the expressions on your daughters face! She is quite the character!

I think people might be getting busy at this time of year so maybe they won't leave as many comments! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I still have followers, just not commenters!!

Making your words work for you................

If you struggle with depression, use your words to change your situation. You may have been through your situation. You may have been through a lot of disappointments. You may have gone through some setbacks in the past. More than anybody, you need to get up every day and boldly declare, "This is going to be a great day. I may have been defeated in the past, but this is a new day. God is on my side. Things are changing in my favour."
When discouraging thoughts attack, instead of complaining and expecting the worst, say it again and again:"Something good is going to happen to me. I'm a victor and not a victim."It's not enough to merely think positively: You need to speak positively about yourself. You need to hear it over and over again. "Good things are coming my way. God is fighting my battles for me. New door of opportunity are opening."As you speak affirmatively, you will develop a new image on the inside, and things will begin to cahnge in your favour.
