Happy Halloween

Introducing Shawn (Royal Falcon Football player) and Queen Elsa. No theme this year, as GK was all about being Elsa. I tried to get Tyler to be Olaf, but it did not work. But, I can't blame when he got to go to Royal's field house and get his own helmet and shoulder pads to wear. Tyler thought that was really exciting. Mr. Big Time. Thank you Coach Robinson for making Tyler's day. 
Matching or not they still melt my heart all dressed up. 
We had a fun and full week leading up to Halloween. It also happened to be Red Ribbon week at Tyler's school, so lots of fun theme days.
However, some days don't go as planned and you just have to go with the flow...... especially when someone becomes sick. Our football player woke up at midnight and I just knew something was wrong. Thankful he got some rest. We were hoping that he could make it to school for his costume parade. However, a trip to the doctor before 8 am is how our Halloween started. Instead of treats this year we got Strep Throat. 
Georgia Kate even missed a fun Halloween party, but some days you just have to take sick days. Thankfully, through the day Tyler improved little by little. He even asked me at one point if he could go back to school.  
We were hoping to spend our night under the Friday night lights, but instead Ryan had to cheer them on alone. I decided to share the kids candy loot and let GK pass out candy to trick or treaters. The lights were on and we waited and waited. The wait worked.... we had 4 visitors! :) 
Well, this is not the Halloween we had visioned, but sometimes Plan B can be just as sweet.
