Halloween Weekend 2016

Who doesn’t love dressing up for Halloween? For as long as I can remember, I’ve enjoyed dressing up and playing a different role for just a few hours. This year was no exception. Our small town held their first Halloween festival, which included games for children, animals up for adoption by the local Greenbrier Humane Society, snack and craft vendors, live music, a costume contest for attendees, AND a pet costume contest. It was only appropriate that Matt and I enter our pups. Well, they won as a tie for Most Original Costume! Needless to say, I’m glad our cheap Amazon purchases and homemade costume from a pillowcase and some buttons were worthwhile 😉 Here’s our 2016 family Halloween picture!

A Jedi Knight, Rey, Leia as Princess Leia, and Miner as R2D2 🙂

Of course there were other Star Wars attendees there, so it was only fitting that dueling went on.

And of course, a couples selfie had to happen. Couples who nerd together stay together!

The force will keep us together.

While Saturday was a day of running around and having fun, Sunday was lazy. So lazy that, in fact, we slept until 11:00, ate breakfast at 1:30pm, and spent an hour driving over a one-lane road (if that’s what you want to call it) ON TOP OF the Greenbrier State Forest trying to find a hiking trail. We ended up at the exact same spot we always go (from a different direction). It was worth it though to see the autumn beauty that was all around us.

Lastly, I couldn’t help but take a picture of the fall setup on our front porch. I enjoy decorating (to an extent), and I absolutely love fall. I’ve really gotten into wreath making too. Thanks to Hobby Lobby for their cute decor and awesome sales!

After an exhausting weekend, it’s only appropriate to end this entry with a picture of Harper, our kitten rescued from the horrendous flood this past summer. If only we all could relax like her after a busy day!
