What a great and busy weekend. Friday, Nicholas had his halloween party at preschool. The kids all looked so cute in their costumes. He was very excited and we all had a great time. I made vampire cupcakes for the occasion. After school was over we packed an overnight bag and headed up to Peru Ny (where my dad lives) and surprised him for his birthday. His birthday is actually on Halloween but my stepmom planned a surprise party for him. We dressed the boys in their costumes and hid behind the wall when he got home from work. He was very surprised to see us and the boys were happy to spend sometime with their grandparents. On Saturday we went over and visited uncle Brian and aunt Carrie and play with Olivia and Addison (the boys cousins.) We don't see them very often so it was nice to catch up. The boys and Olivia had so much fun running up and down the hallway. Then my sisters Michelle and Cathy and her husband Ross came up later that afternoon and surprised my dad again. We all had a great dinner together and of course cake and ice cream. Chad and I had to leave that night to be home for Sunday. We didn't get home until about 10:30pm BUT thankfully the boys slept for the whole ride. Sunday morning we got up and went to church. The boys were very excited to be going trick or treating with their cousins later that evening. We went to Dave and Chrissy's and had a great dinner and then went out. Dave and Chrissy had a costume theme this year and decided to be bee's while Dave was the bee keeper. They made Chad the beehive. It turned out cute and so many people made comments about the costumes. Nicholas was a fireman and Jake was a dinosaur. Noel was a princess and Ty was a skunk. Ty and Jake looked so cute together and they managed to snag 2 or more pieces of candy from most of the houses. We got home about 7:30pm and aunt Michelle came over with reeses peanut butter cups (my boys absolute favorite candy) and these mini Mr. Potato head toys. Jake has NOT stopped playing with them. He even slept with the pieces last night. Happy Halloween everyone!!
