October 31st

Halloween has come and gone.  Is this year going super fast to anyone else?  It's so frustrating.  Time went by so slowly when I was a kid, and now it seems like the weeks are like days and the days are like hours and the hours are like minutes.  Everyone says it, but really, it's true.  Time flies.

Halloween day started with me trying to study for a math test while trying to get Brendan's costume together.  His costume wouldn't have been difficult except that I had to paint a white t-shirt with orange stripes, since oddly enough, there are no orange striped t-shirts to be found.  It's my own fault.  I should have taken care of their costumes so much earlier.  I really mismanaged my time and ended up short changing my study time, and I ended up making a 78 on that math test.  It bums me out because that has been my first C of the semester.  I'm currently making A's overall, but it brought me down to a low A.  Besides the math test, Halloween was a fun day, and my kids looked so cute.

Bren was Phineas of Phineas and Ferb.  If you haven't watched that cartoon, look it up on Netflix, it's SO funny.
Lindsey was Silvermist from the Tinker Bell movies.  She wanted a picture of her holding one leg up like the fairies do when they fly.
Instead of going door to door this year, we went to James River Assembly's October 31st Party.  It's their Halloween alternative.  I liked it, but getting candy was so difficult.  They had buckets at every ride, slide, and event, but sometimes the lines were so long just for 2 pieces of candy to be dropped in.  Part of the fun for me on Halloween was coming home with a bag full of an insane amount of candy.  They got a good handful, but that was it.  I'm not sure if we will stay there the entire time next year.  I'm thinking we will go to JRA and catch the show, then go door to door.  Get the best of both worlds.  Moving on.  Here are some pictures from the night.


  1. Love these costumes! My boyfriend's 8 year old is a big fan of Phineas and Ferb - she would die over your son's costume!

  2. Adorable costumes!! Bren is such a cutie, and I think Lindsey gets prettier every time I see a new pic ;-)

  3. Looks like an extra fun time! Your kids are so cute. I love their costumes!
