Halloween and Ashlyn's fourth birthday

Joe's school has a trunk or treat every year. This year I got to get in on the fun... in case you don't know what a trunk or treat is.. (us yankees don't do this).. you decorate your trunk and kids go trick or treating to each of the trunks. I decided on a "cars" theme at the last minute and had all of these signs courtesy of my friend Brandi. :)
As many of you know, I fought with Joe to figure out what he was going to be. We had a grand total of three costumes and I found the skunk from last year in his closet. It was a bit short on him but worked better because it was pants and a "jacket" that just happened to have a tail on it. HA! You should have seen me shoving him into his car seat.
I worked hard at not letting him see me, hoping that he would go with his class. No dice. He saw me and started crying. Ah well. :)

Halloween afternoon, I wanted to take him to a trunk or treat at McKinney Bible church but as you can see from the below picture.... he was having NO part of his costume. I finally bagged it and decided this was supposed to be fun for him. Poor little guy.

That afternoon, Meg, Jeff and kids came over for a sleepover. Cole and Joe kind of fought the whole costume idea and as you can see, again... the skunk won. :) They were so cute. They would go up and ring the doorbell and the door would open and Joe and Cole would, either one, walk right into their houses. It was hysterical.
The other funny story, was when we walked up to a house that had music... Joe put his bag down and started dancing. Too funny, my little musical guy.

"are you done yet?"

Jeff was nice enough to paint his face and hand out candy to all of our trick or treaters. What a champ!
Joe and Cole took a bath after trick or treating. They are just too cute for words.

Sunday dawned and we had Ashlyn's birthday party. Susan's baby was turning four. Where does the time go.
Shelby came in her princess attire.

Joe had no royal attire, but he did get a spider painted on his face.

The cake was yumm-o! Joe definitely thought so. He couldn't wait!

Awhhh how cute!

mmmmm cake!
