Weekend Fun

Tuesday, November 3, 2009
I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween weekend! We did. Kaylyn spent the night with my parents on Friday night so I got to sleep in...I really needed that! Kevin had to be at work on Saturday at 5am so I was all by myself. I have to say that I enjoyed it. I got up around 10:30 put an MK order in and got dressed and headed towards Kevin's work.

Kevin is a huge Miami Hurricanes fan and has some friends here in Alabama that are too. They hosts alot of game day partys and one happen to be on Halloween this year. So I met Kevin at work and we headed to the party. The game started at 2:30 and for the 1st 2 quarters we watched the Hurricanes play like crap. Really! We had hamburgers and hotdogs grilled out and they were pretty good. Around 4:30 I left to go get Kaylyn dressed for Trick or Treating.

Kaylyn was Ariel the Mermaid this year. We took some pictures (which I have yet to upload, sorry) and then I headed to my grandmother's so they could see her too. My grandparents on my mom's side have 4 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. All of the great-grandchildren are 5 & younger. Kaylyn was the first. Anyways my grandmother always goes overboard with them and bought Kaylyn a princess pail (to Trick or Treat with) and in it was a whole bag of Hershey Kisses (yes a whole bag and JUST what Kaylyn needed!) a bag of Goldfish and some other small goody's. We only stayed there for a few mins because then I had to head to Kevin's parents so they could see her in her costume and we would Trick or Treat in their neighborhood.

Kevin met me at his parents and we headed out. Let me tell you that Halloween isnt what it use to be. There use to be tons of people out and this year well not alot. I think in all we might of hit about 20-30 houses and after that Kaylyn got bored & cold and wanted to come home. I was fine with that because in all honestly Kaylyn doesnt eat candy so really what is the point of Trick or Treating? So in all we were back in the house by 8 on Halloween night! I didnt mind it though...I had had enough fun for one day.

Then Kaylyn begged to spend the night with my MIL and in the end I agreed. I did feel a little guilty thought because tecnically she stayed the whole weekend somewhere else other than home. But she had fun and I am glad that she is able to stay with her grandparents with no problems.



I agree, it's not what it used to be. It was still fun but it seems like more and more people aren't doing anything.

I've heard so many people saying that halloween is different this year. WOnder if it is the flu junk? anyway- taking a night off once in a while and letting them stay at MIL is much needed, isn't it?
