Fall Festivals Times THREE!!!

We partied hardy at 3 different fall festivals this weekend. WOW! And we still have Halloween night to go! (exhausted much?!!)

I’m tellin’ y’all~ this age, 6, is SUCH A FUN AGE FOR HALLOWEEN! We have had an absolute blast!

I reeeeally encouraged the kids to choose their OWN costumes this year (we have always done a group theme)…and I was pleasantly surprised that they all picked Halloween characters!

Drew- A Ghost

Ethan- Dracula

Sav- A Witch

Ben- A Skeleton

The head witch of the household…ahem…

We met our besties~ the Tarrant twins~ (dressed as Madeline! Liz is so creative) at our FIRST festival on Friday night.

In no time Mom was holding on to 4 buckets, a camera and a cell phone… (followed by a ghost costume and 8 shoes)

The cutest little skeleton that I’ve ever seen! (by the way, very difficult to find non-scary skeleton and ghost costumes, just so ya know…)

My super ninja nephew Carter!

Love that Liz! She is sporting Sav’s witch hat that Savannah ditched after 5 minutes.

Yep, Andrew proudly ran around in his sister’s tight athletic T-shirt that was 2 sizes too small while Mom held his costume… tsk, tsk

I was determined to get a costume that he could potentially keep on for longer than 5 minutes…so, I hit the stores late Friday night…

Whallah! Now we have a werewolf! I was cracking up that I could see him smiling behind his mask! That Drew…

Going through these pictures, I have noticed that the majority of them are of Savannah Leigh. Her brothers wouldn’t hold still long enough for a snapshot!

I tell ya something~ this little missy has an incredible amount of patience and determination. She stood in the cake walk circle for 30 minutes until she won some sugary treats to share!

Again, the boys were crazy and having SO much fun bouncing around. Drew could barely contain himself long enough for this picture!

Sunday afternoon: My church’s Fall Festival!

Papa, Granna and Aunt Judy were able to come & join in the fun before Mom starts her radiation and chemo treatments in Houston next week.

I LOVE these pictures of your kiddos every year! Great costumes and they always look like they are having a BLAST!

You look so much like your mom in these pictures! Sav is looking like a teenager (as usual) and the one of your mom laughing at the table with all the kids just melted my heart. She'll be in my prayers as she starts her battle.

Loving your orange and black leggings! Where did you find them?

Loving the scary Steeces this year!Our little ones are 8 and 10 now but every year we say that Halloween has turned into an extravganza for sure! It is somehow stretches to about two weeks of activity. My husband likes to tease me that we have to attend every fall festival and trunk or treat because I am going to get every last dollar's worth spent on costumes!!! And he is correct :-)
Best wishes to your sweet Mama.

I have been following your blog for a long time, and I have to say, your kiddos are gorgeous!!! Yeah, there will be some broken hearts in Texas.

You always look so great in your pics? How do you do a "selfie" so great? I always end up with a weird facial expression.

Thanks for sharing your family, and many healing prayers to your Momma!!!
