spooktacular saturday

The stars were aligned today...we had a full day planned, everything went smooth and we all had fun! I will be sad to see October leave us, this month has been a blast for our family!

First up bright and early arrived Mimi to have a morning play date. We cooked breakfast, played with our trains and then headed off to Ikea. We were on a mission to find a cute table for our play room that Jack could as well eat at. 

I wish I had my camera at Ikea because I had no idea how much fun it could be for kids. Jack was running around the children's department like a wild banshee, but there was no one in sight so we let him have at it. We also found the cutest table and chair, its gorgeous! The coloring is almost a antique gray and it for sure doesn't look like it comes from Ikea! However just my luck the Houston store has the chairs and the Austin store has the table. So I have my best friends mom on the hunt to score us the table. This picture doesn't do it justice, its really so cute and the coloring is more of a brushed on shabby/french look.

We got home and Mimi needed to get ready for a Halloween party she was attending. 
She was the cutest Mimi witch we had ever seen!

Once Mimi left we put Jack down for a nap around noon. 2 pm quickly came and Jack was ready to rock and roll. We improvised on costumes, with both Jack and Daddy as football players.
I on the other hand borrowed one of my Moms costumes and loved it! I have an entire bin full of costumes for myself but when I saw this on my Mom I knew I had to borrow it :)
With a bribe pop in hand we went to the annual Kruger Halloween party!

Danielle, Noah & Nathan Kruger  ....yeeeeehaw!

They had the cutest spread and oh my the tastiest bites. Ruffles dipped in chocolate!?! Sign me up!
Nathan knocking out the Biggest Loser (love it!)
...and how creative is this, love the train track!!
Jack wouldn't leave this little Frankenstein alone, it danced and he was just in love with it!
He was also in love with the cupcakes and was requesting a 2nd by tossing a mini fit, so we decided it was time to hit the road as we had another party to attend!
A quick pit stop at home for Mom and Dad to change and off to Missouri City for David's 4th birthday party!
Maria invited us over to share in the fun and I'm so glad we got to! It was perfect fall weather and it got me excited for Monday, with all the kids running around in costumes! 
We sat with a fellow longhorn family and we had such a great night with the kids!

Once Daddy got in the bounce house Jack had no fear and was a jumping machine!

Happy 4th Birthday David!
We called Gran/Grandpa to let them know we would be close, so we stopped by after the birthday to say hi.

We pulled out Meet the Sight Words flash cards, as he has been watching the DVD's that Grandma bought him and JACK SHOCKED us, I knew he could recognize a few of the words, but he proved that he knew TEN of them! We kept going and he kept saying them!! We are soooo proud of him and he was so proud of himself! Such a fun moment to share!

But then it was back to playing and showing off his dance moves ... ha
What a busy and great day...and to end it with some sweet kisses sounds like the cherry on top!

little gobblins

 Today was a full day of costumes, candy and children! We headed out for school this morning in one of our costumes. Today Jack was a darling little giraffe, and yep I had to give him a sucker to get it on him :) It was also really chilly out this morning so we just made with what we had to keep Jack warm for the rest of the costume. I think it all turned out so cute :)

 He figured out he had a tail and couldn't stop laughing it was soooo cute!
 I came back to his school as I volunteered to help with the class party. There were a ton of kids in the class today as they allowed all days to come today for the party. It was a zoo, and Jack fit in just perfect!

 Jack really focused his pumpkin to make sure that it lined up just right to knock down the pins!

Then we came home and Jack took a nap while I enjoyed my day off from work, running around getting things ready for an upcoming event I'm hosting. Once Jack woke up we headed over to my dear friend Chasity's house for a little Halloween play date with all our friends. 
She had her house decorated so cute and had pint size bites for the tots and delish drinks for the Moms!

 By this point Jack was tired of his costume, so I didn't make him wear it, but everyone looked adorable!

Mommy is pooooooped and Jack is somehow still running around the house as I type this! Is it 8 pm yet :) ??
We have another full day tomorrow too! A date with Mimi, another Halloween tot party and a birthday party!
Wowzers! October is always so busy but we do love it :)
Happy Friday!
