No Tricks, Just Treats

Happy Halloween Ya'll!

I'll start my post at the beginning of last week. Something that is SOO unlike me.

I guess Halloween just snuck up on me because I was under no pressure to get the boys' costumes together. Apparently there is no such thing as a solid color sweatsuit for kids. Trevin wanted to be a lion and Coop was going to be a dalmation. Everything was planned to get started, except the supplies. I searched the small town of Mena, but nothing.....not even a solid colored long sleeve shirt. Seriously?! I decided to do a 180 and come up with something else. Trevin agreed to be a football player and Cooper was going to be a construction worker. By Thursday night I was ready to pull my hair out, take a bottle of anti-stress pills, and give myself the "I'm a horrible mother" award a little worried. The razorback football helmet and jersey that I ordered didn't arrive, and his daddy was not about to let him wear the OU one that they had in stock at Hibbett. After searching.....again.....I found a jersey, and about freaked over the price. I held my breath and bought it anyways. We already had all of the things for Cooper's costume at home. Costumes...check.

Needless to all turned out fine. It always does. Next year I think I'll start on costumes in May. Trevin had his Halloween party at school Friday, and our town did their Trick-or-Treating that night. Here are pics from our adventure!

I Met the Duggars!

My sis and I headed to War Eagle Friday afternoon. What's War Eagle you say? Well, its a HUGE arts and crafts fair in NW Arkansas. This was our 3rd year to go. So much fun. It was FREEZING! I don't think it got above 49 degrees.

We hit the convention center Saturday afternoon and I'm so glad we did! Does anyone watch the show 18 Kids and Counting?! Well, I ran into the mom, Mrs. Duggar. Ha! I sound like I know her! Of course I had to have my picture taken with her and two of her daughters. She was so sweet about it! May be the only famous person I meet in my whole life so I completely took advantage of the situation!

8 for 8

Remember me telling you that my sister is also pregnant? Well, she recently found out that she's having a BOY! Can't believe it! I just knew she was going to have the first girl. They're super excited. Her words....."I don't want a girl. They're too dramatic. Boys are easy." So glad she got what she wanted! Baby Daeton will be a great big brother!
