Cool Cats

This was a year of Halloween firsts for our family! Jude's first Halloween, our first shot at door to door Trick or Treating, and our first Halloween without daddy :( Minus that last one, we had a wonderful time.

Isabelle really wanted to be a leopard/cheetah cat so I decided Jude's costume should match. {yes, I'm one of THOSE moms}

Cheetah Girl and Tiger Boy

This was our first Halloween back our small town of Indiana so I was worried about the selection of costumes we would have to choose from. Luckily, Mamaw found Isabelle's mask, bow tie, and tail at WalMart and I found Jude's tiger costume there as well. We already had the cheetah dance leotard, tights, and shoes so I made the fluffy skirt and we were it business.

We of course had to draw on kitty noses and whiskers which Jude was NOT a fan of...

Smeared Whiskers

Isabelle requested one bent whisker so it would look like she had been in a fight
A couple more pictures and it's Trick or Treat time.

Before we went door to door, we of course had to make the rounds of all our family and friends.

After we had mad our car visits, we walked around our neighborhood and down to the sheriffs department, which had a really nice set up for the kids and by then it was getting dark and very, very, cold so we headed home to check out the loot { I had a very funny convo with Isabelle about what "loot" means lol}

Needless to say, We had an Spooktacular Halloween :)

New Blog

Hello blogger faithfuls! So, I am waaaaaay over due on a blog post but I have an excuse, I promise, well maybe I have several but anywho...I have started at new blog! I will continue to blog about our family, life, outings, recipes, organizing etc. here on this blog, but have started another one for the sole purpose of sharing our new home with you! We will be putting in LOTS of elbow grease to make our new, old house shine like the top of the Empire state building {Annie anyone?} and would like to share the process with the masses.

So, if you are interested in painting, home renos,diy, and home decor I hope you will take a little time to visit From Florida to Flora!
