Candy Time!

Well we now have enough candy to last us for at least a year! Yesterday was a busy but fun day. It started with Connor's football game. They were undefeated and were playing the #2 team. Unfortunately, after going into double overtime, we lost. Our coach gave a GREAT speech afterward though. He emphasized how it's okay to lose sometimes and that he was still proud of all of them. We also got a nice surprise when My Uncle Chuck and Aunt Deanna from FL showed up at the game. They had made a spur of the moment trip up to TN for a mini vacation and to see Deanna's family in Johnson City. It was so nice to have some extra family there to cheer Connor on.
After the game, we headed to Fender's Farm for a birthday party. The weather was perfect and the kids had a lot of fun. Noah especially like the animal exhibit. They had sheep, goats, pigs, ponies, geese, and chickens and they were all super friendly. We did the corn maze and I'll admit, we ended up cheating and taking a shortcut. We had to be home by 4 and it seemed like we were going in circles.
We had just enough time once we got home to change the boys into their costumes and head to the candy carnival at church. After a puppet show, the boys got to get candy at different stations. Each station was decorated like favorite children's books or shows. There was Alvin and the chipmunks, Alice in Wonderland, and Toy Story just to name a few. Upstairs they had games for the kids and a hot dog dinner.
We got back home and saw kids in our neighborhood trick or treating. We thought that would happen tonight but apparently, it had been moved to Saturday. So we ran in and put Connor in his trick or treating costume. He was a glow in the dark stick man so we had saved his costume for after dark. I have to say it turned out really neat and everyone we saw commented on it. They had fun and Noah did a great job of keeping up with the brothers. we were home by 8:30 and the boys were in bed by 9:30. Not too bad! Now we get to relax today before Liam's birthday party tomorrow!
