Halloween Weekend.

I know why so many people don’t blog, or stop blogging.  It can become so overwhelming at times.  I feel like this weekend we did so many fabulous things, with a thousand photos, and then on top of it to have to sit down, sort photos, and write…UGH, overwhelming.   But fun at the same time.

Saturday started off as a sequel to Friday night.  HORRIBLE.  Ashton just wasn’t himself.  What I later learned, a full moon was on its way into town.  Wonder if that is what sparked the horrific behavior?  Not sure, but for now, it’s gone.  I’ll take it.

Saturday we were ‘supposed’ to go to basketball.  That was canceled do to behavior issues.  Then we were going to go immediately over Grandma and Papa’s for a Halloween Party.  Again, canceled.  Behavior was that bad!  Seriously.  BAD.  Grandma was very disappointed, but Mom and Dad were even more disappointed.  but we just could not let the behavior slide.  Eventually, Ashton and Mommy had a sit down where AT realized that he had all these things taken away for something as simple as not wanting to go potty.  Where he could have just said, no thank you, I don’t need to go, where instead he threw a tantrum that didn’t quit for over an hour.  Yes.  One LONG hour.

Ok, but instead of reliving that, let’s get to the fun part.  After a nice afternoon, with a nice long nap for both boys, everyone came over our house for Trick or Treating.  Oh, and Ashton’s 2nd birthday bash. 


Austin was a super cute Mummy and Ashton was still “Fireman Ashton!”  He loved that costume 😉 


Captain Hook (aka:  Howie) joined as well.  I have to say, this was the BEST Halloween yet.  Now, it was 90 degrees outside, 90% humidity in the air, we were all hot, sticky, sweaty, and having a great time. 

Ashton and Howie changed costumes.  Someone asked Howie if he was Hugh Hefner…I nearly DIED.  He was freaking Captain Hook…now sure he didn’t have his hat on at the time, but GESH people.  LOL.  Ok, so they changed costumes.  After Ashton’s pants dropped on him for the 10th time, I noticed how HOT he was in that plastic Fireman Jacket.  So what does a Mom do?  Takes it off, and his shirt…and now, (Howie & Austin following right along) they became….034


They were even telling people that!!!  HA!!  It was freaking CLASSIC!!  Oh, so in the picture see how they are all squatting down?  Yeah, they did this about every 2 houses.  They were turning into Transformers, or something like that.  BOYS.  Girls would NEVER do that.  HA!!!

 So it was a SUCCESSFUL Halloween!!!! 

Miss Chris made sure to juice all kids up on CANDY!  I think the 4 boys (Ethan was there too) shared about 10 Hershey bars…YIKES!!!  Then we came home to this…036

It’s a cupcake-cake.  And it was YUMMY!  The kids were so tired after this that Austin left to go home and passed out on the floor of his house!  HA.  Ashton and Howie had a quick bath and then said goodnight to each other.  All parents were in bed by 10pm.  I think we were all pooped out from the day! 

On Sunday, Ethan had another cupcake, do you think he liked it?

043I would say, YES!  Crazy kid.

Next, I need to blog about Ashton’s birthday present from Grandma and Popi.  But I’ll save that till tomorrow.  I need a bloggin’ break 😉
