Birthdays, Pumpkins, and Costumes!

This post is a jumble of the past week!  This past week has been crazy...but crazy in a good way!!  My birthday was Friday and so was my sweet nephew Ryan.  Thursday night my dad watched the boys for us so Jeremy and I could go grab dinner and have a little date night to celebrate my birthday.  On my actual birthday Jeremy took the day off of work so we could hang out and spend the day together.  Later that afternoon we headed over to Catch Air for Ryan's birthday party.  Bennett was SO excited!  He adores Ryan and could not wait to get there.  The party was so much fun and the kids had a blast.

Saturday we ran around taking care of a bunch of errands.  Later that night we went over to my sister's house for Ryan's birthday party so we could celebrate with family.  Friday night was for his friends, Saturday was for family.  It was so fun and relaxing!  We just all hung out and watched the kids play and Ryan open his gifts.  Still can't believe Ryan is 6 and I really can't believe I am the age I am now :) I am sad I forgot my camera for both parties.  I had it set out to bring and sadly left it home so I have no pictures of any of Ryan's party...Major fail!

Sunday was another busy day.  Jeremy and I co-hosted a couples baby shower for some of our very close friends.  It was a really fun party and my dad had the kids all day, so we got in a kid free day and got to hang out with friends which is always a nice treat!

We didn't get much down time because yesterday was Jeremy's birthday!!  He was able to work from home, so the boys and I tried to make his day special.  We had doughnuts for breakfast, and for dinner Jeremy asked for chicken and dumplings and apple crisp for dessert!  It was a yummy meal and we had a great day celebrating him.  After dinner we finally got around to carving our pumpkin.  Bennett got to carve one with my parents so he was very ready to do ours!

Excited and ready to carve our pumpkin!

Our pumpkins!

Bennett was proud!

Today at school Bennett had his Costume Parade.  He was really looking forward to dressing up for school and having a little party.  Bennett wanted to be spiderman this year, which is what he was last year, so that is what he is going to be!  Luckily his costume still fits so score for not having to buy any costumes this year since Walker is wearing one of Bennett's from when he was younger!

Here comes Spidey!

 He was so uncomfortable with everyone staring.  His face just made me laugh.

This little guy just hung out as long as his snack cup was full!

It has been a busy week so far and tomorrow is going to be another crazy day since it is Halloween but I can't wait.  Bennett is so excited for Halloween and is ready to trick or treat with his cousins!
