Halloween week was festive around here. We went to a pumpkin patch with some friends from church. Henry loved the hayride and corn maze.
We make a cute ghostly looking pair! It was so hot that night it was unbearable, really. Mosquitoes drove us out of there quickly.
Memphis Zoo Boo was the best halloween fun we’ve had in years. The lady working the Panda exhibit said “we have candy and dancing inside” and I replied loudly, “yeah, you do!” And my crew almost died from laughing in embarrassment. Randall took these of us dancing it up with the pandas!
We meet our friends there and enjoyed being with them and making new memories with our kiddos.
This is us with Mandy and Charlie about 10 years ago and now. We have such fun times together. I’m so glad they moved back to the midsouth.
Elvis made his grand appearance at trunk or treat and was a hit! He would take off his wig all the time because he was so afraid everyone would really think it was Elvis and not Henry! I made him put it back on quickly because he looked like Elton john with just those glasses on! Ha
I love my little family and the endless fun we have together.
Our trunk or treat is also our church’s annual agriculture appreciation day. We live in the delta. It’s what we do. Henry and his lifelong friend Élan were testing out the vintage Allis Chalmers tractor together.
Halloween morning was spirit day at school. Henry loves his new school pullover. I loved my porch decor and he really added to it!
I was head of his class party….but of course! Lol. It was such great fun. We LOVE his teacher so much. His friends are so sweet and they are such fun to watch in their classroom. I enjoyed meeting some of the moms in the class too.
Halloween night was cold! Henry was tired and it was a challenge. We powered through it for a while. We got together with our friends at two different houses on the same street and then trick or treated as a group for a while until Randall told Henry it was time for Elvis to leave the building and get to bed! Parenting is not for the faint of heart!

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me!
