October Celebrations

Football, band, birthdays, our wedding anniversary and, of course, Halloween makes October a busy month for celebrations. I posted about Stephen's 15th birthday - a casual affair at CiCi's pizza. 

The was another birthday in our little family in October. That's right...I turned 40!
My family gave me a birthday party at a local restaurant. I love gathering with my siblings and nieces and nephews. They definitely are part of my JOY! My sisters provided a special birthday hat...they are just SOooo funny! {eyeroll}

Virgil and I also celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary on the 26th. Not only do we LOVE each other, we totally LIKE each other too! ;)

It has become a bit of a tradition for me to make Halloween costumes for a couple of my great nephews. It thrills me. I know as they get older they will most likely want dress in commercial costumes, so I truly cherish this time while they are little.

This year Aiden was a Jack-O-Lantern and Jaxon [his first Halloween!] was a dinosaur.

Aww, what the are some more!

We enjoyed a weiner roast and handing out candy at sister Jill's house again this year. Love this tradition.

I didn't see this cutie until the end of the evening. My beautiful niece Megan was a Native American princess:

Unfortunately, I missed getting a picture of my nephew Sam. He was an awesome looking Iron Man!

October is done!

Now bring on the turkey.
