We attended my sister Kelly's Halloween party on Saturday......I haven't been to a costume party in 15 years! It was a lot of fun! I'm actually thinking about hosting some type of fall fest next year. We have lived in the country for 10 years now and have never had a fall get together at our place. With 10 acres of land at our disposal, we could have a big chili cookout and offer hayrides and play games. We also have a fire pit for roasting marshmallows and making smores - perfect for this time of the year. We could plant pumpkins and have everyone pick out their favorite from our very own pumpkin patch. So many fun things we could do!!
Overly enthusiastic crazy woman takes a moment to reflect on her wonderful idea and unusually high level of ambition.
Hmmm......on second thought, sounds like a lot of work. Maybe I should wait and see how I feel come next year! :)
Until then, enjoy these pics!
Like I always say - go big or go home.

I know, I didn't know who he was either. Josh, you funny guy!
My Mom survives another round with help from my brother-in-law Tom.
Ali with my niece, Shelby. Ali LOVES Shelby!
Tom, 10 month old Thomas, Anthony, Nicholas, Jenn, Natalie & Tim.
Aren't they a creepy looking family but in a good way? :)
Don't know what's going on here but it looks like Ben just saw a ghost.
Al & Nat (isn't that cool that both of their nicknames are boys names?)
They were born just 9 weeks apart and are both in kindergarten this year.
Doesn't my Mom look beautiful and my Dad look dashing?
Kelly, me and Jenn.
Ben channeling his inner Michael Jackson.
He was Juan Carlos.......or Don Juan......or Don Quiote......
Actually, I don't really know who he was but he
was pretty funny none the less!
The day before the party, Tom attended the funeral of his Mother, Nancy.
I think being at the party and with family helped take his mind
off his grief for a while.
