Halloween with the Hardy's

We have SO much going on right now. Half our stuff is in boxes, everyother day we are signing more papers for our house, and so Halloween took a step back this year. I had bought Autumn a costume last year during an after Halloween sale, and it was a 2T Witch costume. Really cute! BUT I was out shopping with my mom when Drew called me (he was getting the kids ready for a Halloween trunk or treat party) and said that the costume was tiny, and wouldn't have even fit Weston (who wears 9 months). I was shocked! Luckily, I didn't pay much for it, and I had a back up. So, Autumn was the same thing she has been the last 3 years. Notice a trend??

Autumn at 5 months:Autumn last year, at 18 months:
Autumn at 2 1/2 years:

Did you notice the trend? She has been an ASU cheerleader, a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, and a Raiders cheerleader. I HOPE next year we can have her be something else!

My cute little baby boy was a fisherman. I have had this outfit since before he was born. He hadn't worn it yet, and all I did was make him a fishing pole. I had a "Gilligan's" hat for his head, but he would've kept pulling it off. But he loved his stick and fish!

We didn't go trick-or-treating. We will go next year when both kids can walk, and Autumn can clearly annunciate "Trick or Treat." I didn't want the candy in my house, and Autumn doesn't know the difference, so we went out for dinner and went shopping (the stores and restaurant were empty) it was a perfect Halloween for us!

Just curious, who's the Oakland Raiders fan?

Love the costumes. I didn't take Story this year. I was hoping next year she would be old enough. But maybe we'll have to do the same thing...wait until she can annunciate trick-or-treat. :)

Kristine- Drew's whole side of the family is BIG fans. My father in law was so excited about her "costume"

Oh, Okay. Then that's okay :) It's a rough time to be a Raiders fan, and us long time Saints fans can definitely relate.

I love the fisherman suit - How cute! I can't wait to see those cute little kids at Christmas! Maybe you have started something with Autumn. With her energy she will make an awesome Cheerleader when she gets older!

I am sooooo excited for you! The kids are going to love having more space to move & play And you are going to love having your OWN place. Congrats!

The kids look so cute. I'm glad I was there to see them dressed up. I think you did the right thing, skipping the trick or treating, sounds like you had more fun.
