Funky Flora shabby

Thursday, November 14, 2013


Yes, it is a bit late to be posting about Halloween. Because I have a lot of catching up to do on the blog, I decided to break it up or I don't think I'll ever finish. Also, Carson is asleep on the floor next to me which isn't exactly conducive to a good nap so I have limited blogging time.

I think this is the first time Carson has fallen asleep on the floor, so I had to take pictures. Don't mind the cracker crumbs by his mouth, they are just cracker crumbs.

Anyway, back to Halloween...

Remember that pumpkin we got at Southern Belle Farm? Well we carved it for FHE with some friends. Our's is the one with the Elmo face.

Our friends also had a fireplace which we think is how Carson got this little puppy nose even though it looks like we painted it. Cute little puppy.

Our Halloween festivities didn't end there! (Which is good because our pumpkin went moldy at least a week before Halloween. Humidity? I don't know.) The next party was the ward trunk-or-treat. It was awesome! Carson went as Nemo which was perfect since he recently learned how to do a fish face.
I have a season pass to the largest aquarium in the world, and I've never seen a fish cuter than that :)

The cake walk was just that for Carson -- a cake walk. He won on his first try! Lucky #7!

Our fish fishing for prizes.

He had to find marbles in the spaghetti for prizes here.

Bean bag toss.

And of course he got some candy trunk-or-treating :)

This year was also Carson's first year going trick-or-treating for real. We figured he was old enough since he can say "trick-or-treat." Our car wasn't working and our internet was down so we didn't research or go to the best neighborhoods, but we walked to Atlantic Station hoping they would have some activities. They only had some treats at Publix, so we wandered around the nearby houses on our way home. It was really fun for all of us, we had a blast.

The Nemo costume was a big hit. Carson loved wearing it and even keep the hat on. Though maybe next year I'll just put a mustache on him because, seriously, look how cute he is:
