Superpunky takes Halloween

I can’t believe another year has gone by!

Preston celebrated his second Halloween.

I did have a minor parenting fail though. On Thursday around 5pm I found out from my neighbor that trick-or-treating was going to be on Friday (instead of saturday the 31st) due to a home football game. I hadn’t gotten any candy, Preston’s halloween costume was 2 hours away (he was supposed to be buzz & woody with his cousin–they’re both obsessed!), and hubby was still gone on a business trip! I loaded Preston in the car and we headed to wal-mart for candy and a last minute costume. Thankfully, they had a costume in Preston’s size!! My 13 year old self was jumping for joy. I finally had a child to dress as my favorite childhood super hero/crush. So I grabbed the costume and candy and we decided to stop over at the mall quick before heading home. We went inside and everyone had their children dressed in costumes and all the stores in the mall were passing out candy! I couldn’t believe I had dropped the ball again!! With tears welling in my eyes, we ran out to the car, I threw on Preston’s superman costume, and we went back inside! I bought him a little bag at TJ Maxx to use for candy.

He was a little shy at first, I had to show him what to do. Walk up to the stranger, grab candy from them, stick it in your bag, tell them thank you, and move on to the next stranger. He caught on pretty quickly once he realized candy was involved!

I’m SO glad we stopped by the mall. It was so much fun! Preston had a blast!! It was the perfect warm-up for Friday nights shenanigans!

..and thankfully Dada was home to join in on all the fun this time!

Superpunky finished all of his chores just in time for trick-or-treating to start!

image

Even superhero’s have chores.

image

We hung out outside and Preston was able to pass out candy to all the kids!

image

After the rush was over on our block, we took Preston to a few houses around our neighborhood! Thankfully he remembered what to do.

image

It was so great. Last year he was too young to enjoy the fun. This year he was the perfect age! He was so cute knocking on the neighbors door and then peeking his head to look in the windows next to the door.

An Ode to Fatherhood & Husbandhood

In honor of Father’s day, I am going to use this as an excuse to brag about my husband!

Preston and I are so lucky to have Chad in our lives. He is an outstanding husband and father. He is such a hard worker and impresses me with his skills and knowledge on a day to day basis. After working a long day to provide for our family, he comes home, and takes care of all of his ‘husband/father duties’. It seems that the yard work and house work is never ending. There is always something that needs to be done. Whether it’s cooking dinner, cleaning the house, doing the dishes, mowing the yard, changing the oil in one of our vehicles, folding laundry, or watering the garden; he’s always there to get the job done. Not only that, but he also finds the time to hang out with Preston and me. He is always putting our needs before his own and does it in the most selfless manner. He also lets me sleep in on the weekends while he tends to Preston. He does the first diaper change every morning and evening before I feed Preston. AND HE NEVER COMPLAINS A BIT.

So today, (well, yesterday…actually, everyday) I am not only thankful for Chad being a good Father, but I am thankful for him being an outstanding husband. ALL. THE. TIME.

Happy First Father’s Day to my Hubs!
