Weekend & a Halloween Party

Our weekend was busy.  I thought it was going to be a low-key one but it was our first weekend home in a while and so we had lots on our to-do list.  We have been wanting to put flower beds in around the front of the house.  We finally got around to doing it this weekend.  Friday we went to a local nursery and picked up plants that we had picked out the day before.  Our plans Saturday was to till up the ground and go to our church's pumpkin patch.  None of those things happened.  The tiller wouldn't start and it was too cold/windy for the babes for a pumpkin patch.  Well, I had bible study today and our church has NO more pumpkins!!!  I wanted to cry!  I didn't even get one picture with Brady in the sad.  And I don't think there are any other patches around that have pumpkins either.  I feel like such a bad mom.

We made a trip to Home Depot for more plants and soil.  We also stopped for lunch while out and about.

We didn't make it to church yesterday.  Honestly, I didn't get out of pajamas except for a quick trip to Wal-Mart.  It was just one of those days!

We did get the ground tilled up (thanks to our neighbor letting us borrow his) and AB got a few plants planted.  He is hoping to finish planting this evening then we'll need to add mulch and rocks around the edge.  Much added curb appeal!
Today was also a busy day for us.  We had a Halloween party this morning with some of the moms from Kindermusik.  Of course, I waited until last minute to throw B's costume together.  I've had the stuff for a few weeks now but lately sewing is the last thing I want to do.  Really all I want to do is plop on the couch these days...just being honest.  The Halloween party was hosted by "Yoda" or this little cutie, Owen.

 Cutest Peter Pan ever!

 We had Peter Pan, Yoda, Superwoman, Little Red Riding Hood, Little Miss Muffet, and a zoo keeper.

 Peter Pan of course found the window and "dog!"

 And I completely forgot my camera.  Thank the Lord for smart phones/cameras.

 Brady went straight for all the toys.  He found a CAT bulldozer that he loved. 

But I do think his costume turned out pretty darn cute if I do say so myself.  I followed this how-to on how to make it.

We left straight from the party and headed to Bible study.  With making a quick stop at Chick-fil-a drive-thru for lunch.

It was a day of going with the flow.  I debated not going to the party because of risking a happy boy during bible study.  Or because I couldn't find the red feather to complete his costume.  Brady normally takes a 2 hour nap in the mornings before bible study and when he doesn't he cries for me.  Thankfully, he did just fine today in the nursery.  I sat him down and he went right to playing.  He also played really well at the Halloween party.  Makes me such a proud momma.  Amazing how much pride you get from your children from them just simply being them.  Makes me think of how my heavenly father loves me, even when I'm in rare-form.

I'm so glad I just went with it today and took Brady to experience life.  It was nearly 2:30 before we made it home and of course Brady fell asleep about 20 minutes before we got home.  So even though we didn't get "all" our naps in today, I am so thankful for days like today and allowing myself to just relish in this season of life.

And to top things off, our sweet friends welcome their new baby BOY into the world today!  I am SO excited for them and can't wait to see them 2 short weeks. 

So much to praise Him for!!!
