yes, i mean it when i say it was a weekend full of halloween celebrations for our little family. here's a little run down.
thursday: cooper's school halloween party & parade. it was beyond adorable. he helped mommy make ghost lollipops to hand out to his friends. everyone wore their costumes (cooper was a shark) & the teachers set up some fun booths for the kids. todd & i volunteered & were in charge of the cake walk. well, i was in charge of the cake walk & todd quickly joined in the fun with the kiddos. then the kids marched around the cul-de-sac with in the cutest little costume parade. afterwards we celebrated with one final trip to the pumpkin patch.
friday: eden's 1st pumpkin party: cooper's favorite baby, his cousin eden, turned 1 & threw a wonderful pumpkin party. coop loved playing with his cousins & helping eden celebrate.
saturday: trunk-or-treat: our ward threw a trunk-or-treat. coopy helped me decorate the car. he got all dressed up in his dino costume (he decided to switch things up a bit). but once it was time to do the trick-or-treating he was much too grumpy. he whined & begged to go home. he wanted to trick-or-treat at the scary houses not at the cars. such a little booger!
sunday: trick-or-treating: cooper insisted on playing a game of soccer with daddy before venturing out. he did amazing. i still can't believe how well he can pass & shoot. after the game he put on his shark costume & carried his magic light ax & treat bag outside. he only wanted to go to the scary houses & he wanted to fight all the scary creatures with his ax. he was so brave! he filled his entire bag before deciding it was time to go home. we had a snack & he helped pass out candy. then todd decided we should go drive to a new neighborhood to trick-or-treat, again. after only five minutes in the car cooper was asleep (yea, at only 7:45, unbelievably early for him!). so needless to say he had a very fun weekend.
