Gardener Village and OCTOBER 31st :)

I HOPE EVERYONE HAD A
HAPPY A HALLOWEEN!
We sure did.
***
I am just waking up (it's 10 a.m.) and starting to recover from a busy and fun-filled weekend. I love when my whole family comes home...and we spend DAYS at a time playing games, laughing, staying up late, EATING...and just being together. BLISS
***
We've been busy the last month PACKING our weekends full of Fall activities. November always goes so fast...and then it's too cold to get outside! So we took advantage of the great weather and took Jaxson to WITCH'S NIGHT OUT at:
GARDENER VILLAGE
(totally my idea...Jarom endured it like a champ...until he got hungry...I took him to chili's...problem solved:)
witch

Jaxson was understandably obsessed with this witch. She was holding his toy of choice...a BAT. He ran under the "do not cross" rope in 2 seconds flat and was trying to pry it from her stuffed hand. Great times. Crowds of people watched as we tore him from her screaming.

HA. HA.

My baby's first Petting Zoo!

I was kind of (ok REALLY) excited about taking Jaxson to the petting zoo. He experienced his first PONY RIDE EVER...and once again, was the only child screaming when it ended. Jarom pryed him from the miniature horse while bystanders giggled. Great times:)

pony

I have to point out that my baby thinks the leather tassles on the saddle are Reins (SP?)

IS THAT NOT PRECIOUS OR WHAT????

I wanted to reach in the ring and squeeze him he was so cute.

horse ride


animals

He loved the animals. He pets animals backwards which is really entertaining.

FIRST: He walks up to their rear-end and places his hand on it's back. Then swipes it ONCE in a quick motion toward the head of the animal...and is moving on the next lucky little goat!!!

Crazy kid. I have some priceless pictures.

looking

I LOVE LOVE THIS ONE.

petting zoo

...and this one.

You can see the excitement in his eyes. He just couldn't get enough...

pooping

THE BEST PICTURE OF ALL!

All animals obviously POOP at random...but this was Jaxson's first experience with it.

H.I.L.A.R.I.O.U.S

He thought it was the funniest thing ever.

well

After dark ---Jaxson got all dressed up in his costume...with about 2000 other little children....and we browsed the shops and saw all the witches. It was a fun night out with my family.

HALLOWEEN NIGHT!

We had a wonderful Halloween. My entire family was present to see this ONE little Dragon trick-or-treat for the first time. Me and Jarom even dressed up so Jax wouldn't feel lonely...what good sports eh?

I was Leonardo....Jarom Michealangelo. It was hilarious. My shell was bigger than I was...and it kept about tipping me over. Definitely a night to remember. HA.

We wore them for 4 houses....and then came home to take them off.

trick or treating

Holy crap I am a good sport.

IT'S All for you little Guy...I love you:)

sucker

The Good news:

Jaxson got a dum-dum sucker at the first house and was happier than he's ever been!!! There was absolutely NO NEED to continue we concluded. We went to three more houses...and came home to enjoy my mother's WONDERFUL cooking....

cookies
Homemade soups in bread bowls...cookies...carmeled popcorn...the list goes on.
THEN, the annual pizza PARTY at the BISHOPS, of course.
We were full to say the least....and all in all it was a WONDERFUL HALLOWEEN:)

That was hilarious. You snap some amazing photo's especially him pointing as the goat (or whatever) pooped. I don't know how you always catch the perfect moment, but let me in on it. Aaron and I want to come to your Mom's next Halloween ok. I can't believe all the goodies she makes and home made soup. Dream come true. Also Aaron and I just watched the Ninja turtles on TV the other night and we were just talking about who was our favorites. You guys had some awesome choices.
