Tinkerbell and the Zombie Mechanic ruled the streets in Glendale, AZ! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all....

I hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween last night!!!! Brookie got really into last first she was like, "yeah ummmmmmmm....this is freakin' me out...Abum can go get my candy for me!" lol....but after us telling her a few times that if a house had "lights on" and she could go get candy....she was all over it!!!!!! LOL!!!! She would see a house and say, "the lights are on!!!! come on Abum, they have candy for us!!" and go running towards the was adorable!!! Of COURSE....she still wouldn't go near the houses that looked "haunted"....noooooooooo way noooooooooooooo how!!!!!! LOL!!! But the kids both got some major candy stash, (and Mama of course had to go through it before they could touch Adam's not allowed to have any "sticky" candy because of his braces....and well....I don't want the messy underwears from Brookie having the Hot Tamales candies....LOL....but they still both had some MAJOR candy after Mama dug through it!!! LOL!!!).....soooooooooooooo here are our photos! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

First....the kids got goody bags from the Nana's and the Papa's! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)





And really...she WAS actually EXCITED about her Pumpkin don't know what's going on with her face here!!!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And she actually "loved" her dollar!!! LOL!!!! I guess I just kept clicking the camera at the wrong moment!!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):) And U can see Adam loves his $$$$$$ too!!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):)


And here is some of Adam's stash from the grandparents! :):):):):):):):):):):):)


And it was my parents 40th wedding anniversary earlier in the month...and my in-laws bought them a present! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And nowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww for the COSTUMES! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

My TINKERBELL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):) Here is the problem.....LOL....U have a daughter that has had NINE surgeries for her Port Wine Stains....each time....she gets steroids for TEN DAYS after to avoid as we all know...steroids CAUSE GROWTH too!!!! LOL!!!.....sooooooooooooo we have a THREE YEAR OLD that has had 90 days in her life on steroids!!!!!! Soooooo at THREE....she is ALL READY 3 1/2 feet tall...(she towers over 4 year olds and gets pretty close to some 5 year olds too!!! LOL!!!)....sooooooooooo we have to buy her clothes that are for 5 year olds....but as U can tell from the photos....the dress part is STILL too short for her...sooooooooooo on goes the leggings...but her shoulders are regular sized...soooooooooo we had to put a shirt underneath to help "hold up" the shoulders and wings!!! LOL!!!!! Its a pain to shop for MOST dresses we buy are toooooooooooooo short and we have to add leggings and call it a shirt!!! LOL!!! Thank goodness she is tooooooo young to "get it" yet!!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) 



And here is my ZOMBIE MECHANIC!!!!! **side note** Mama did NOT NOT NOT endorse or help pick out this costume....ummmm LOVE U BRIAN!!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And here we are on our Trick -Or Treating Way! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)




And we saw some cool pumpkins along the way... :):):):):):):):)



And by the end of the night....our ears were getting a little chilled (Yes...I know... we live in AZ....but it is the desert...and believe it or not....the nights get cold here!!! LOL!!!!) :):):):):):):):):) Soooooooooo we got to put on our new stylin' winter hat! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)
