Bulls, grapes, and basketball

Can you believe it….3 blog posts in a row!  I’m on a roll!  But, I should stop before I jinx myself.

So, in the last post I mentioned how behind I am in our October and Halloween pictures.  Well, don’t worry, I’m here to post those today.

First, {d&k} went to a Mavs game last weekend and had a great time.  I’ve never been to an NBA game before and it was a lot of fun!  The arena was huge and very nice.  It was a pre-season game so it wasn’t very busy so we were able to wander around without the craziness of a large crowd.  And, I sort of wish we wouldn’t have eaten dinner before.  There was so much good food there!  Oh well, next time.


Next up, Halloween!
So, in Texas, there are no specified times for trick-or-treating. That is weird to us because in Ohio, there are designated times per city and sometimes even neighborhood. For example, trick-or-treating might be held from 6:30-8 or 7-8:30. Here, nothing. It’s just a free for all. I was a little worried that 1, we would run out of candy early since our neighborhood is centered around an elementary school and the majority of kids that go there live in the neighborhood and 2, since there were no designated times I was worried we’d be handing out candy all night.

The trick-or-treaters started coming to the house around 7 and didn’t stop (well, we stopped because we were out of candy) at 9:30! Some of the kids were so tired. The parents were literally dragging them from house to house. That’s too late for those little ones to be out trick-or-treating. I think the parents just wanted more candy.

Despite that, we had a great Halloween. We had friends over for dinner and they helped pass out candy. It was beautiful out, around 80, so we sat on the front porch eating our dessert and passing out candy. While we were eating dinner, we were in the dining room and we’d get up to pass out candy when a kid knocked on the door. There were a lot of kids dressed as werewolves this Halloween and 2 in particular were very scary. Our front door has a window at the top that just happened to be the perfect height for these werewolf heads. We heard the knock and went to answer the door and as soon as we turned the corner all four of us stopped because there was a very frightening werewolf staring at us through the window! Haha. This happened again later that night when a kid was wearing a Scream mask. Haha.

We also dressed the pups up for a little bit. Mostly just to get a laugh and a few pictures.

Elvis is a bull, complete with bull rider on his back that moves when he runs! Hilarious! And poor, grumpy, old Oskar is a bunch of grapes. Doesn’t he look adorable?! I love that these guys don’t mind being dressed up to humor their mom. I’m a great parent like that!


I hope you had a great Halloween and a fantastic October.  Now, let’s see what kind of adventures {d&k} can get themselves into this November!

Enjoy your day,
