Well this Halloween really just came and went. Blake and I have been working so much we almost had no time to do anything for Halloween. But starting on the 27 I began making our costumes. Not having much time because there was only 4 days till the ward party, not to mention Thursday we already had a full day planed. So I was down to 3 days, plus we still had 50 hrs to work before 6pm on Saturday. With no time to spare I hit up Walmart, and thrift stores so by the 29th came we had almost everything.
Then all it took was Saturday at 00:01 I went looking throw some old fabric to make a belt, handkerchief, and collar. Along with fixing up a black skirt and finding big brown boots down stairs.
And Bam!! Popeye and Olive Oil!!
Like I said I started making these costumes on the 27th so I could not have finished without the help of my mom making the handkerchief and collar while we were working.
Even though Blake and I got off work at 3:30pm on Saturday, we stopped by Walmart on the way home to buy some unloved pumpkins that where leftover from 100s of people digging though them all. I even got mine carved to put in the ward contest by 6:30pm... Blake's on the other hand did not make it.
All that work for 1 ward part, spending time with crazy nieces and nephews and their fun loving parents. I would not have changed a thing, except maybe geting a picture with us all in it.

|The macho Wrestling|
|Doc. and Patient + their 3 ninjas and a cute mermaid.|
|A Fairy, Ballerina and the coolest skateboarder ever.|
But wait... that was only the beginning of the evening. Like I said Blake and I work like crazy so when we have time off we take it. After the ward party I went out to dinner with my mom... and on the menu was a pasta, spinach and olive oil salad, that I just had to get.
While Bo, Blake and Adam went out on the air boat.
Blake did not change out of his Popeye outfit to get a good picture on the boat.
And Adam caught his first gator!!!
He looks excited doesn't he.
Well this year was fun, and I can see those costumes coming out again when we have our own little sweet pea one day.
