before anything...did you guys see the giveaway from monday? have you entered? have a look.

cash // free holiday card design // ad space = worth it

it's friyay again. how do the hours turn into days and the days turn into weeks and the weeks turn into's nearly 2016.

seriously - thanksgiving is less than three weeks away. just sayin'.

and since thanksgiving is less than three weeks away i guess it's about time i share our halloween pictures!

the problem - kaye was so so fa-reaking cute that night it was hard to take out my camera or phone because i was just giggling and gawking at her and constantly turning around to my farmer saying...

"did you just see her?"
"look at kaye!"
"look at her!"
"look, she's getting candy!"
"look, she's running!"
"look, she's scared!"

i was that mom.

but before i annoy you all with my kaye obsession...let's get our link up on -

1 | grab this here snazzy fall-themed button and link back to Sept. Farm.
2 | link up your post at the bottom of this post.
3 | tell all your friends + have a fantastic friday.

H A L L O W E E N  R E C A P

1 | before halloween the gals and i made it out to my parent's house for dinner and pumpkin carving. my dad has some serious carving and scary-face drawing skills. however...i did manage to talk him out of any power tools this year.

i was so proud of kaye for digging right in...and being totally grossed out.

2 | on halloween night we headed to boise to do some dinner and trick or treating with our friends in boise. they live in a great area and the girls may have even scored a couple of king sized candy bars. that's a win.

3 | cathie and dylan's gal, claire, was the cutest izzy from jake and the neverland pirates. she's a year and a half older than kaye and had zero problem showing kaye the ropes around trick or treating. the girls were told several times they had the best TRICK OR TREAT! i think that translates to - most enthusiastic.

4 | my best gal, kaye, was dressed up as a super hero. have you guys ever seen the show pj masks? it's super cute and kaye is WAY into it. it's about kids who turn into superheroes when they put their pj's on. so basically...kaye HAD to be a superhero for halloween. and while i could have gone all out and gotten her a legit superhero this and superhero that...i went for a tutu and a cape. the whole getup cost less than $10. that's a win and she LOVED it.

and miss sawyer-muff (my other best gal) - she wore a recycled kitty cat getup from kaye's first halloween. girlfriend is going to have a lot of recycled this and that's. second kid probs. regardless..cutest kitty cat i've ever seen. edible.

5 | it was basically the very best night. cathie and i walked around with spiced apple ciders. the guys participated in something called trick or drinking...or maybe it was drink or treating? i can't remember. regardless - basically there were houses in the neighborhood that would hand out adult the adults. (think jello shots // beer // fireball). meanwhile...the girls ran wild throughout the neighborhood. sawyer hung out in the wagon. basically i wish it was halloween most every night.

yay! on to the next holiday! here comes thanksgiving!

link up time...


  1. I'm mostly just impressed Kaye kept that mask on ALL night. That's a dedicated super hero.

  2. We love PJ Masks! Kaye made a great super hero and Sawyer was adorable!

  3. So fun!! I am glad I'm not the only one who spent Halloween with a's definitely a necessity to survive Halloween with kiddos. :)

  4. I know Thanksgiving is three weeks away, but seeing that written out is like WHOA! Scary. And also so, so exciting.

    You've got the cutest girlies around!

  5. Cuties! Sounds like the same sort of neighborhood trick or treating we have...the candy corn jello shots got me this year.

  6. Awww such cute costumes! Looks like a great time

  7. Your little ones are precious! My little guy LOVES PJ Masks! If I would have had a little more time to prepare, he most definitely would have been Catboy for Halloween!

  8. That superhero costume is the cutest! And I love that Kaye had a little friend to show her the whole trick-or-treating thing!

  9. This look like such a fun halloween for both of them!! I love Sawyers outfit, too bad it was so cold she had to bundle up and hide her outfit. Drink or treating sounds likes so much fun. We have too many kids for that in our neighborhood, everyone was gone trick or treating.

  10. I can't believe Thanksgiving is right around the corner! The girls look so stinkin' cute! Where is that tutu from, I've been looking for one for my flower girls and that one looks perfect!

  11. So glad you had a great Halloween! Looks like so much fun. The girls look adorable!

  12. your halloween looks so fun!! i love the idea of handing out treats to the adults-maybe we will have to do this next year! :)

  13. Looks like you had a lot of fun! Your girls look absolutely adorable!

  14. I love the picture of Kaye diggin' into the pumpkin, the look on her face is priceless! :)

  15. So the trick or drinking thing is real?! I heard about it from my cousins who were headed out to Harris Ranch for it. Is that where you went? I'm only planning ahead for my future children I may take trick or treating some day...haha. Your girls are too cute! I love Kaye's super hero look!

  16. I need to come to your neighborhood next year! Walk tails and trick or drinking... up my alley! Cute cute ladies of yours!!

  17. Reed discovered PJ Masks two weeks before Halloween and it nearly derailed his three month quest to be Ryder. He changed to Cat Boy, but the Ryder costume was already on the way so I told him to be Cat Boy next year and he was all for it. Crisis averted! Sign us up for trick or drinking! We usually have an ice chest on the porch and say that we feel like we hand out almost as much beer as we do candy.

  18. That picture of Kaye with the pumpkin guts is PRICELESS and PERFECT. I love her as Super Kaye. Cutest... tied with Sawyer!! Little miss looks SO excited for Halloween!! -sara
