I had a Little Turtle...

Hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween. We sure did. We had a good turnout of treat or treaters at our house. Owen loved opening the door (with some help from mom and dad) and seeing all the kids. At first he was upset he couldn't go outside too. We figured out that if we told him to wave goodbye and to close the door then he didn't get upset.

My work had a Halloween Chili/Soup Cookoff for lunch. It was so good and plus they had bread bowls. I made my Pumpkin Pie Cake and I got lots of compliments about it. Later they had trick or treating for the kids. All the employees sit at their desk/cubicle with their candy bowls while the kids come around to them. Owen was so strung out already that we didn't last long. So we quickly worked through the maze of desks and came home. Owen's favorite is Smarties as you can see below. He likes Nerds and Tootsie Rolls too. Tuesday we went trunk or treating with Owen's cousins Lilly, Luci, and Andrew. I had a hard time getting Owen to keep walking. Every stop he wanted to dig through his bag. He was so tired too.

Lately he is only taking one 2 hour nap but he still really needs at least a second small one. He gets so tired and strung out. Anyway, enough of me jabbering and onto the pictures. He finally cooperated!


  1. That is such a cute costume! Sounds like he had a great time!

  2. cute costume! What are your plans for Christmas? Are you going to come to your dad's house? What do you guys want/need for Christmas?

  3. Owen is SO SO SO Cute. Nap time is hard. Hunter always falls asleep late in the evenings. It drives me bonkers!

  4. Oh, that is just the cutest turtle EVER!!!

  5. Okay how adorable is he? I love it!
