HaLLoWeen PaRty!!!

I am not sure how I uploaded all of these pictures in reverse order... oh well. My good friends Kim Hensley, Cheryl Turan & I did our best to throw a kickin' 5th grade Halloween party at our house last Friday night. I must say- It was AWESOME!!! I think we had more fun than the kids. Jack & Lily Kate each brought 2 or 3 friends also. We had pizza, games & a dance off. We weren't sure if the 5th graders would actually dance, but it was the highlight of the evening! They got down!!! It was adorable! Ethan was a cheerleader (he looked way too good like that). Jack was Jack Sparrow complete with "the walk" and drunken expression, and Lil was a Cheetah girl (not like the show, an actual cheetah!). Kim, Cheryl & I were the witches of Weatherford. I thought we looked pretty cute! It was great! I am already halloweened out and we still have a week until the real deal.
I was so mean to plan this party on Donald's birthday. Poor guy- he celebrated with 30 kids 10 & under. I think he liked it though. He is a trooper like that!
I can't wait to go through all of your blogs to see all the cute costumes!!

Happy Birthday Handsome!

This is one of my very favorite pictures of Donald. I took it near his parents home while he was playing football with Ethan, Jack & several of their cousins. It is just him. For some reason, I think he is the cutest at his parent's house. Every time we go there- I feel the way I felt when we were first dating. I think I fell in love with him while I was on the back of his 4 wheeler while we were riding around his parent's land. It was around his birthday & the air was just starting to cool off. It was so fun! Holding on to him & laughing... maybe that is why this is my favorite time of year. Happy Birthday, handsome! You make me so happy!!! I am incredibly blessed!

MaX & the MuM

This is Lily's sweet (& incredibly cute) friend Max. Max "bought" Lily a mum for Homecoming... then was too shy to give it to her. 4 days later- he worked up the nerve! Give the guy a break- he's only 6! She loves it! It is hanging on her wall.
Back story on the mum- Why I think it is precious...
Max has 3 older brothers. One graduated last year, but the middle 2 went to homecoming & bought mums. As April (my friend, Max's mom) was at the place buying the mums- Max said he wanted one. April said, "For who?" Max said he wanted to give one to Lily. April says they don't need to buy one for Lily. Max either cries or pouts a little. The mum lady felt so sorry for him- she gave him the mum for free! It pays to be super cute like Max. For some reason- it is not so cute when Lily tries to pull that off. So, there you have it. The story of Max & the Mum...
