More House?

nDelaney and Brody

Halloween is not my favorite holiday. To be honest, it isn't even in my top 4. I love Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, 4th of July...... then Halloween. This year was a bit different. Last year we dressed Delaney up like a bee. She was so cute. She wasn't walking really and we went trick-or-treating at a couple houses. This year, TOTALLY different! We got the kids dressed and headed out to a neighborhood nearby. I really didn't know how Delaney would react. She is a stubborn little thing and I figured we would hear "yo Momma" (she can't say N's... quite funny) or she would love it! Turns out, she loved it! We loaded up the bus and went to the first house. I walked up to the door with Delaney, Eric was carrying Monkey and I rang the doorbell. When she heard it, she yells, "I did it!" (I am not sure what exactly, but still cute). The lady opened the door and held out the bowl for her to take some candy! We showed her how and from then on, she was a pro. At the end of each house she would say, "tank you guys" and then look at me and say, "more house?" So fun. Brody... just ate the stroller. We finished the night by trick-or-treating at my parents house. We didn't tell them we were coming. When they opened the door, their faces were priceless. They were so excited to see them! Once inside, Delaney discovered what all that stuff was in her bucket. It was Halloween, of course I let her try some. Boy, you want to see sugar in action, give it to a toddler at 7:30 at night. Not smart, but funny.

Anyway, I am excited for next year. I will have 2 walking kids and we will be better prepared.
Rule #1: Don't forget a flashlight,
ESPECIALLY in a neighborhood with no street lights and a place where snakes live.

Brody as what else? A monkey!

A monkey hanging out in a tree.... yes, we are nerds.

"Seriously... how long can this monkey thing go on?" But HOW CUTE!
My kids... man I love them!

And that was our Halloween.......

The End

Tomorrow: Delaney's Birthday party (a little late I know)


  1. They look so cute. Glad you had a good time. We were at church with 5 other children, yes that makes 8 kids in the children's department from birth through 5th. Between Halloween and the Newsboys concert we were slow. We had fun though.

  2. Oh my god...Minnie and a Monkey!! So adorable!! Good post! I'm almost done with my "Day 2". Oh and I especially loved the photo of the monkey in the tree!

  3. Hi Nicole!

    My name is Laura and you left the nicest comments on my blog this weekend! Thank you!

    I have only been posting for 2 weeks so I am absolutely no authority in blogging at all, but am happy to share what I have learned.

    First I found a ton of helpful info here: Be sure to read through all of the tabs, it talks about monetizing your blog.

    Second, I read that if you want to make money, make sure to prominently display info for advertisers to contact you. A separate email address would be good. One that is just for people to contact you outside of the comments section.

    Plus, I read that the best way to make money is to grow your blog. Advertisers look for followers and subscribers and number of visitors per month. So that means joining groups and getting out there. And it takes a lot of time. Most people won't make money until after about a year.

    I have found that it is a lot of work, but it is really fun work.

    I think it is fun to look at the stats on Sitemeter and see where my viewers are coming from. I have joined a few blog catalogs and have gotten referrals just from belonging.

    Oh there is so much more! I do not know how much the comment form holds!!!

    As for design, I do digital scrapbooking and designed my header and sidebar titles myself. Then I went to LeeLou Blogs and she set it all up for me except I added the favicon and nav bar. I used her free background template. It is called Jammin and I can change the color around myself. Right now I am feeling red!

    I had read that you want to create a "brand" It really took a long time to think about what I wanted my blog to feel like, but in the end I ralized I wanted it to be fun because that is mostly the tone of my writing, or at least, that is how I want it ot be :)

    you can contact me directly if you want

    I hope I have helped you in some way. There is just so much to blogging, but isn't it fun! I am still learning too. I just recently realized that the awards that I see on people's blogs are awards given by other bloggers! I thought it was something "official", but it really is a great way to get out and be seen. I am working on one for the future.

    Let me know if you have more questions! We can help each other make our blogs be read by millions!!!

    Have a great day!

  4. very cute Minnie and Monkey.

    My daughter is turning 3 next month and this year she was really into it. Made it very fun for us to walk around the neighborhood with her. :)

  5. Loved their costumes....! The cutest trick-or-treaters ever! And Delaney on a sugar high is definitely something to see.
    Love, Mom


I totally appreciate you taking the time to comment! I love it! However, I reserve the right to delete any comment that is inappropriate or malicious. No need for that here:) Thanks in advance!
