Hocus Pocus!

A day late but wanted to re-cap my very busy Halloween! We celebrated all weekend long, with my students, with Mr. Jones' soccer team and with my ladies! Exhausted doesn't even begin to describe how I felt all day yesterday but happy that we're almost at the mid point in the week and feeling very rested!

Our classroom Halloween party was a success! My students were absolute angels all day long, it was a Halloween miracle I swear! Even though they looked adorable in their costumes I had worried that they would be out of control excited about their "alter egos" and the promise of a party later in the day. We made it through our morning activities and then spent our time after lunch watching "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown", making a cute little bat craft, eating cupcakes, playing freeze dance and of course making our rounds in the parade!

My Little Monsters!

(and I realize that I just recently said that I'm trying to avoid posting pics of my kiddos but this was just too cute and such a special memory for me!)


Mickey Mouse Fan Club! Mama Kylie and Ryland were too sweet!

Friends and Co-workers. Love these mama mice!

I also spent the weekend celebrating with Mr. Jones (Halloween is by far his favorite holiday) and his soccer team. They held a fundraiser/ costume party for the team and they had an amazing turn out along with some truly awesome outfits!

One of my favorites was the husband & wife duo that dressed as a "ball and chain" you can see the Mr. in the top left. Loved it!

My Macho Man. Yep. Mr. Jones in all his Halloween glory. Lord help me.

And Saturday was spent celebrating one of my besties birthday's and getting dolled up with some of the girls. I may be biased but I think we made a pretty cute bunch.

The Witch costume definitely got it's wear this weekend. It was one of the easiest costumes to put together and I loved my striped stockings. I have a pretty extensive holiday sock collection and now I can add these as well! (These will also make an appearance during next baseball season too! Orange & Black for my Giants!)

All in all it was a fun weekend but I must admit that I am soo excited that today marks the beginning of celebrating the "Holiday Season" I am going to be adding a few Thanksgiving touches to my Fall decor and have already started planning for Christmas! Ha!

Hope all of you had Spooktacular Halloweens!
