Our Yearly Halloween Party!

This years Halloween Party brought up some interesting costumes. London was once again, a princess. I was Ugly Betty and Madden was a Pumpkin. I drew in my eyebrows really thick and the whole night they were itching!Although, he cried a lot of the night because he was hurting. Poor guy. At least he's chubby enough to look like a Pumpkin! Gabe was Elvis and looked awesome! His hair was so dang cute. My mom was a cat burglar. Mandy was a gypsy. Libby was Goth Brooks. Dan and Emily were lifeguards and little Sammy was a Bear. Madeline was an Equestrian (or lamo because it wasn't really a costume). Dean and Mary were a King and Queen. Mia was a flower. Luke was spiderman and Ginger was a little chick. Trent was a super dud because he was the ONLY one not to dress up. I mean, COME ON!!! It's a costume party! Oh well, I guess we still love him. My dad was Nick Nolte. He pasted pictures of his mug shot all over the house. It was pretty good. I love this picture because Madden is trying to nurse. ha ha! We had a donut eating contest and Dean won. His donut fell on the ground but, that did not stop him from eating it...on his knees...without his hands. Madden was pretty fussy for a little bit of the night. My dad calmed him down and wrapped him in a blanky. Poor guy has acid reflux and doesn't poop for three days. I'd be fussy too!He was so warm he slept all through dinner. The kids were hilarious. Mom had a ghost pinata and they went wild. The got glow sticks and candy and vampire fangs. London loved the fake teeth and also loved her earrings. She wore them all night! It was a really fun night and my mom gave prizes to everyone. She did an awesome job and always makes an effort to make our get-togethers memorable. Thanks mom!

Sounds like so much fun! Poor Madden. Is he on any meds for his reflux? All 3 of mine have it! 2 have it worse than the other one. My boy is just now trying his third medication! It's so sad. I totally feel your pain. Also this may sound gross but have you tried suppositories on him to help him poop? The formula my babies are on is high in iron and backs them up A LOT. So I talked to the doc and he had me use those. Its really not as bad as I thought it would be. Call me if you want tips. It is so worth it to me because it makes my babies happier! Good luck.

Oh, I miss your family! How fun. I do love the Elvis costume. I might have to steal the gypsy or Ugly Betty idea for myself!
