Halloween Begins...

With the boys being at different schools this year, we are going to have a crazy amount of carnivals, parties and Halloween celebrating this year. It started off yesterday, with Remi's school Halloween Carnival. Of course, the Cowboys were playing so I left Micah at home and the boys and I had a pretty good time playing all those games that bring you back to the 'good 'ole days'. Favorites of the boys included Plinko, Toy Walk, Putt-Putt, Go Fishing, and the Baseball Throw. We did every game once and then a couple of our favorites twice!

I have to say, I wasn't sure we were ever going to get there though. Back in August, when I was getting costumes ready for the boys, Roen wanted to be a red Power Ranger and Remi wanted to be a tornado. So, I got the costumes and we were ready to go. However, this past week, Remi started saying he was embarrassed to be a tornado and wanted to be planet Earth. In order to make things go smoothly, I broke down and bought the Planet Earth costume for Remi.

But, as we were getting ready for the carnival, Roen decides he doesn't want to be a Power Ranger anymore. So he puts on his rocket costume from last year and we were good to go. Until Remi started crying and throwing a fit about not wanting to be Planet Earth either. Oh, I was so mad. Between old costumes and dress-up clothes he had 7 options...7!!! Nothing was good enough! He literally almost got left and he cried and pouted the whole way there. In the end, there was a smile on his face, but he still insists that he now wants to be a Ninja! I am not looking forward to more fits about our costume in the upcoming days.

Roen really is trying to smile, he was just cold!

Bless his heart! Or bless your heart! It's such a tough decision...even when you have 7 options. Girl, you certainly get to use your patience don't you. Even with the unhappy look on Remi's face they are adorable. Good luck with the rest of Halloween!! Wishes for all tricks!!
