Colby and I welcomed Halloween the same way we do every year… By me dressing the dogs up in ridiculous costumes. Well, not that ridiculous. Bentley was a Dinosaur, Riley wore a shirt that said, “Same poop, different day,” and Jayda wore a hoodie with bones on the outside of it that glow in the dark. I don’t have pictures of Riley and Jayda’s costumes, well, because the pictures I took were in our kitchen which has the worst lighting and flooring… So the pictures look terrible and I didn’t want to post them.. So You’ll get to see Bentley’s. We decided that this year we were going to get three pumpkins and carve each of the dog’s faces into them. Well, Riley destroyed Bentley’s pumpkin before we got to carve it so I went to get him another one yesterday and they were gone… So thanks to Riley, Bentley didn’t get a pumpkin. Maybe next year… We spent the day cleaning out the garage and had a few trick-or-treaters come around in the middle of the afternoon, but aside from that, we didn’t have any trick-or-treaters after dark. So we have a huge bag of candy and gum left over… most of which Colby has already eaten. I’m not a candy bar fan. So after the garage was cleaned (yay!) Colby decided it was time…. time to partake in .50 corn dog night at the new Sonic they just built here in Joliet… So we went, waited in a long line but finally got a parking space and we took advantage of the .50 corn dogs. After that we watched Paul Blart, Mall Cop which we were afraid was going to be stupid, but turned out to be good. It’s comedy was like any Adam Sandler movie I’ve seen, which I think is funny. That was about it for our Halloween! Oh! And I should mention, Halloween is also my mom’s birthday! So Happy Birthday Mom! I spent awhile on the phone with her while I watched Colby clean the garage… I was sitting down… I’m sure he loved that! hahaha! Anyway, Happy Halloween!
So we still don’t know what got into Jayda, but she was being a very disobedient little lady outside. This was THE only good picture we got of her next to her pumpkin.
And lastly, a picture of all my babies in the fallen leaves. They’re so sweet. I love them all! I’m so glad Riley is still around after his incident.
