a fun Halloween weekend

I always love when Halloween falls on a weekend. We had a party with my family on Thursday evening and on Halloween we went trick-or-treating to my grandparent's and Tyler's aunt's. I always remember wanting to go over to see my grandparents on Halloween and show off my costume. I know it always meant a lot to them to have us come over then and I know it still does. This year was a little more fun than last year because Jacoby could actually hold a sack and carry it to the door. I remember last year all we did was dress him up as a monkey and stay home. :) He looked really cute as a lion I thought. My brother, Thomas, was a lion once when he was little and my mom always said it was adorable so she helped me make the mane. I want to try to find that picture of Tom and send it to him with a picture of Jacoby. I hope that everyone had a nice Halloween weekend!
My friends used to call me Mufasa in high school because of the big hair, so this is for you guys:
Mufasa and Simba :) At our Halloween party we played carnival games. For Steph's prizes she had these sticker mustaches...I know, we are dorks. We always do this smile too; it's an inside joke that I'm not telling you guys about. :)
For my carnival game we did a donut eating contest. I hate to brag, but I'm GOOD at eating contests because I love to eat. Well I was doing pretty good, but you see that donut above my head that Devan is eating? It fell in my hair! Well that's my excuse for letting Lonnie beat me. Ha ha.

When we were at my parent's I looked over and saw that Jacoby had a sucker in his mouth. I asked everyone if they had given it to them and they said no, so I went over by the candy bowl and there was the wrapper on the ground. That little thief! Well he loved it so who cares.
This is Jacoby's new toy! He was always playing with our broom and I didn't really like that, so his Grandma Roe picked him up this broom. He doesn't really like toys very much, but he loves just regular things that we use all the time. Funny kid!
