Halloween 2011

What kid do you know that doesn't love Halloween & dress up? Throw in a school party and a neighborhood bash and you have a good time! We were so excited to share this year's Halloween festivities with a bunch of great friends!

Stryker's class had another great classroom party. All the kiddos dressed up, sang some well rehearsed songs and got to eat tasty treats!

Two Superheros: Elijah aka Batman and Stryker aka Spiderman

Such a handsome Buggy!

BFFs: Stryker & Jarrett as Spidermen

After getting good and hyper on Halloween treats at school, we headed home to have the 2nd Annual Hearthstone Halloween Weenie Roast! For the last couple years (and hopefully lots of years to come!), The Reeds, The Favero's and us have gotten the kiddos together for a pre-trick or treat weenie roast and s'mores! After it gets dark, the ladies take the kiddos trick or treating and the men hold down the fort (aka The Favero's driveway) and hand out candy. This year we welcomed The Honour's and The Grants to help us celebrate!

Cutie Cousins!

Charleston Mommies Trunk or Treat

We had our Annual Charleston Mommies Trunk or Treat today! Lindsey and I are co-Event Managers for the organization and were excited for this special day with our CM friends!

We hosted the Trunk or Treat at a community park in North Charleston. It is situated on the water and has a large field and playground for the kids. We also had plenty of room for the cars to line up for the Trunk or Treat. We had snacks, games, a special guest apperance from Candy the Clown, a decorated Trunk Contest and the Trunk or Treating!

UGH.... Stryker had to be a soccer player for his costume at this event. The costume we originally bought didn't fit :(

Here are some shots of our beautiful Charleston Mommies Kiddos and their costumes! I think everyone had a great time!

Candy the Clown was AWESOME! She brought her face paints and all the children waited patiently for their turn.

Love my Bugs!

After playing, snacks, face painting and some games with Candy the Clown, it was finally time for Trunk or Treating! We had a contest for best decorated trunk! We had great participation and the creativity was abundant! Check out our talented Momma's!


Our car was the snack car, so no decorating! LOL! And Daddy was in charge of handing out candy.

The Winner! Skeleton at the beach!

Having such a great time!

It was a fun afternoon with our CM friends and a great start to Halloween festivites!
