Halloween weekend recap!

Ok, how fun is it when Halloween falls on a Friday?!
 
We had some errands to run Friday morning so of course we all wore our Halloween shirts.


After cheer we had dinner and put on our costumes for some
trick or treating around the neighborhood.
Elsa :)
 
Pink Lady

 
Salt n Pepa (not a misspelling). If you don't get it, we can't be friends ;)
 
This was the first year Hayden was really into going door to door. She has been really timid and scared in previous years. Abi walked with her to the first few and then she was off on her own running with excitement to get more candy! It was really fun to watch!
 
We met up with our friends the Richardsons and the Cards and hit up houses until
well after dark!
 
Then we came home and sorted through our candy and picked out the ones we wanted to keep.
And since the bowl we left out was already empty, we sat outside and regifted some of our treats to
the trick or treaters.
 
 If you know me at all, you know that the day after Halloween is Christmas season for me.
So of course we put up all our decorations Saturday!!
 
And lit a lovely fire.
 
Sunday was the NCA North Texas Classic in Arlington. It wasn't a great day for the
junior 1 team, but I love watching my girl compete no matter the outcome!
 
Here's to a great week! Xo!

Hayden is 3!

You DONUT want to miss this fun post :) This year Hayden decided she wanted a donut themed party with her two closest friends, Taylor and Adelaide. It was so much fun and so low maintenance. The girls had a blast and it was really special for Hayden to spend the morning with her besties!
 
The setup was simple. Hayden picked out the decorations herself. 
 
The girls made paper donuts and had donut coloring pages.
 
These books were the party favors!

 
They also got to frost and decorate donuts to eat!

 
The birthday girl!
 
Getting crafty.



 
They loved getting to top their donuts with sprinkles, chocolate chips and Lucky Charm marshmallows!

 
'Happy birthday dear Hayden!'
 
Mmmmmm!



 
 Time for some fun on the trampoline! I can't stand the cuteness!
 
 
Presents!!



 
Happy, happy birthday to my wild child! I love you from and ants heart to God!!
