Fall Festival

I’ve never really been into Halloween.  Maybe a couple years when I was a kid, but it’s never really been something I looked forward too.  I don’t get all the hype with spending money on a costume and going around begging for candy.
Now that I’m older and a parent, I don’t care much for candy (with the exception of Reese eggs, trees, pumpkins, etc.!) and it is not something we allow Mia to have much of.  Of course she gets the occasional Dum Dum sucker for using the potty, but that is about it.  I don’t care much for scary things and feel that I have a lot more to do with my hard earned money other than buying a costume to wear one time.
Bah humbug right?! 
The last few years I have felt…obligated to participate, since I am a mom and all.  And that’s what good moms do right?  So I decided to go to the Disney store and look for a princess costume.  I found the cutest princess Jasmine costume!  Besides the amount material being next to nothing, the dag on thing was $50!  That didn’t even count the shoes or accessories that you know I would have had to buy for my girl!  This just confirmed my lack-of-love for this Holiday!  I am sorry if I sound like a prude, but do you know the kind of Christmas outfit I could get her for that?!
Long story short, I was going to skip not participate in Halloween this year, but Mia’s Nana and Papaw bought her a cute little watermelon costume.  It covers her skin AND keeps her warm :)
So that brings me to the Fall Festival at our church.  I may not take her trick-or-treating this year, but a festival at church I could not pass up.  We invited Tina and Eli to come along with us…
Mia and Momma…
Tina and Eli…
Our little cuties!  Yes, we will forgive Eli’s mommy for making him wear UK!  Haha :)
It was so cute because Mia kept calling Eli “We-lie” or “Le-Lie” and he called Mia “Meow!” HA!
Showing love…
We saw lots of other friends including Mia’s other boyfriend Jase!  Jase wasn’t feeling well so we didn’t try to get a picture of him, but we still love him :)
How lucky is my girl to have such cute little boys to pick from ;) HA!  At least I know I will love the in-laws!!
We had a great time!
