This year Halloween was super fun! It was a far cry from last Halloween when I was 9 months prego and was waddling around like a beached whale waiting for my misery to be over. Halloween festivities kicked off with going to The Asylum haunted house with our friends Andrew and Jessica. My aunt who lives in Lehi watched Ava while we were out, and it was nice to see some of our friends from our old ward. Afterward we decided that the night was still young and we hit up IHOP to get some caramel hot chocolate and breakfast food:)
The next night was Friday and Scott's sister and her fiancé watched Ava as we went up to Salt Lake to out 3rd annual Halloween bash with some of our best friends BJ and Aubrey and Craig and Stephanie. Scott and I dressed as "white trash". I was Jimmy Ray and Scott was my hot girlfriend Brandy Jo. My costume was no joke you guys...I kept forgetting that I had paint on my face all night, and before we headed down, Scott helped me plastic wrap my boobs down so that I looked as flat as possible, I was a man after all! Just FYI for all you ladies out there...plastic wrapping your boobs is not only probably bad for you, but it is incredibly uncomfortable. By the time we got to SLC I could hardly breath and the plastic wrap was so tight that I just ripped it to shreds from under my shirt. Never again.
Saturday night we were supposed to go to another friends Halloween party, but Ava started having the mother of all meltdowns during the middle of the day, crying constantly. I tried giving her a couple naps, but I think she was at the end of her rope after being left 2 days in a row with a babysitter. We decided to forgo the party and keep her home since she was so miserable. We put her to bed at 7pm and we watched some movies on the couch together. It was nice to just take a break and Ava woke up in the morning in a much better mood!
Yesterday was Halloween and I was very excited to take Ava on her first Halloween trick or treating! I had to work most of the day, but after I got off Ember brought Ava to my work to visit in her monkey costume! Isn't that the cutest thing ever???? I die over her costume.
I hope everyone had an awesome and safe Halloween!
