I need to do a random update post, maybe tomorrow, but for now it's time to recap our crazy Halloween weekend! My brother and Marla came up for the long weekend and my Aunt and cousin came down from NY. I'm not even sure everyone knows that some of my cousins from NY that were in NC moved down to GA back in April/May. Luckily they had room for them to stay at their place since we already had my sister's gang at our house. Pic with everyone is further down in this post.
Hadley wore her smock (eating cover) to get dirty.
She was pretty excited about the whole thing, too!
A few of our crew.
Next it was costume time! Max was spider man this year. He had expressed interest in being a robot or a super hero and I couldn't find a robot costume or have time to make one so I picked this one up at the store one day. He then wore it that day for the rest of the afternoon. Any costume that he will actually wear is a winner in my book! He loved it. He was shooting his spider webs in this photo.
Colette was a kitty cat to match her cousin Hadley. She had to stay behind as it was getting really cold.
Hadley decided our graveyard was the place to be and posed for her photos in there!
After we got back I put Colette to bed and then brought Max over to his buddy Chase's house. They were all getting over sicknesses so we wanted to stop over since they didn't do a lot of trick or treating. Super heros! The guys had a bon fire outside. I went and made a few smores and called it a night. It started getting really windy and rainy so they had to put the fire out around 10.
Saturday we had the extended family in on my moms side so this is one of the whole group! It was very fun to catch up with everyone.
Colette got to meet her cousin Cole (Coleman) who is 6 weeks older than her. They live in Charlotte now so not too far.
They were just so cute rolling and talking to each other on the floor. Colette is looking pretty serious here, but she was having a good time.
Here is a shot of all of cousin kids. It's all complicated as I'm actually 2nd cousins with all of them. Since my mom is the youngest it makes everything complicated, nevertheless it was fun having lots of extended family and cousins in town this past weekend!
