Sports and Halloween!

Carter had game on Monday, Austin had a game on Tuesday, Preston had a game on Wednesday, Preston and Carter both have games Friday, and to round out the end of the week, Trysten, Carter and Preston all play on Saturday.  That's 8 games in one week!  I am thrilled to say it's Thursday, and we have NO GAMES to attend this evening, so it's finally time for some family bonding.  I'm exhausted, but not too exhausted to put up a few Halloween decorations.  My fall decor has been up since September 1st, and now that other people are joining in...and even putting out the jack-o-lanterns...I decided to "drag" out my Halloween garb!  It's so much fun putting cobwebs, spiders and bats on the fireplace mantle!  When else can you do that!?  A few pics of the madness!

The mantle!



The banner I made! I tied it with strips of fabric instead of ribbon, and I love how it turned out!

I love these little guys!  I don't know if you can see it, but I put a little spider on top of the wine corks.  The silver cup is Ryan's from when he was a baby.  His initials are engraved on it, and I filled it with wine corks from special occasions we've shared together like the night when he told me he loved me for the first time, the night he proposed, and special dinners on trips we've taken.  Most of them have the date written on them. =)


The entry table.  I love the little ghost!

How cute is this!?  I ordered the younger boys new candy bags, and Preston and Carter both picked out the skeleton.  Trysten's mom ordered from the same place...Lillian Vernon...and got the "ghoul" for him.  They were only 2 for $19.98, and that includes the personalization!  They are precious and great quality!!

A little bit of Halloween spread everywhere!

Even on the toilet in the powder bathroom!  The boys love it!

Added the black crows!

Filled the book basket with Halloween themed books and magazines for the boys to read!

What?  Hey, the monkeys needed some Halloween love too!  Just a little somethin'!

It's everywhere! 
Happy Thursday!!!
