Happy Halloweenie!

I LOVE Halloween!! I haven't really dressed up since high school (unless you count wearing Dodgers jerseys), but I always want to. I really hope one day we will be able to afford those awesome costumes at the Halloween stores. Since Max was dressing up this year, I really wanted to wear something, anything this year! I didn't want to do it by myself though. It took some leg-pulling, but I finally convinced Bryan to dress up with me. Our costumes were cheaply made and super simple, but I'm so glad Bryan agreed to do it and I had a lot of fun! Last year Max was only a month old so we just stayed in and bought a ton of candy to pass out, but nobody came. This year we went to our ward Chili Feed and trunk-or-treat. We bought a huge bag of candy from Costco, but it wasn't nearly enough for all the kids that came so we had to close up our trunk about halfway through. We did do some trunk-or-treating ourselves and got a small stash for Max though (hehe, for Max...). I was Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff) from the Avengers, Bryan was Batman, and Max was the cutest little tiger in existence!
 Max likes to try and climb up on the closet shelf.
 Black Widow has red hair so we bought some red hairspray. It was a little brighter than I expected, but it was fun to wear nonetheless.
 I liked wearing red lipstick :)
 Max's camera face.
 I made mine and Bryan's belts and symbols.
 Max really liked eating the pumpkin centerpiece. I'm not quite sure where that thing ended up...
 Happy Halloween!!!
 Max loves exploring in the car.

 Max did really well the whole night considering he skipped his second nap. I love this kid.

Pumpkin Patch

We headed out to a pumpkin patch today! I've always gotten my pumpkins from the grocery store growing up and don't know if they even have pumpkin patches in Riverside, CA. I was so excited to go to one here in Spokane and it was so worth the trip (it was the same place where we picked strawberries, which is about half an hour away). I didn't realize how much dirt there would be though. The dirt was so soft and loose and with every step, dust clouds would fly up into the air. Poor Max. There were so many little inclines and sticks everywhere that he kept tripping and falling on and by the end of the trip he was COVERED in dirt, so much so that it went through his pants and got his diaper all dirty. He had a blast though. He just loves any chance he gets to walk around freely and takes off every which way! They had a corn maze, food and drink stands, and train rides, but everything cost money and we didn't want to pay for more than just the pumpkin.
Max didn't like touching the dirt with his hands so any time he fell, he would try and stand back up without using his hands. One time in an effort to do so, he lost his balance and fell right onto the side of his face/head. Eventually he decided it was easiest for me to just pick him up every time and would sit there waiting patiently for me.
