Connor's 1st Halloween

What a great Halloween weekend we had here at Casa Shiplett!  The festivities started on Thursday night with a visit to the pumpkin patch to pick out Connor's first pumpkin.  We were lucky enough to share the fun with GMa & Papa Shiplett, who were visiting us on their way back to Florida after a visit with Aunt Lulu, Uncle Matt & their newest addition Cousin Sloane in California.  It was a crisp cool evening & it actually felt like fall!  Connor had a great time trying to eat the hay (that's what I get for trying to get a cute picture with the pumpkins) and Blair was super excited to purchase my yearly bale of hay to decorate with.     


Papa Shiplett & Connor...can you tell where Connor gets those Shiplett good looks?

Can you tell Blair looks excited? Pictures, Pictures, Pictures!

I love his Boo butt!

Connor is getting really good at sitting by himself!!  Now to work on smiling for the camera!

On Sunday we had lots of fun carving the pumpkins.  It was another family affair, as my parents joined us from Phoenix for the weekend, and Aunt Rachael & Luke stopped by for a visit.  It was a perfect fall, pumpkins & family!  

A big thanks to Mari & Don Burtnyk for Connor's adorable Halloween outfit!!

One good looking family :)

Connor loved watching us make a mess!

The finished carvings - a happy family of pumpkins!!  Thank you Luke for carving Connor's name pumpkin, how you did that I still do not know, and thank you to my wonderful husband who buys me a bale of hay every year to display the pumpkins on!!

All the fun wrapped up on Monday with some trick-or-treating with our great friends, the Terrones Family & Merrill Family, out in Anthem at their annual Halloween block party.  They close the street, bring in a bouncy house, hay ride & all the families on the street set up for some major trick or treating!  Connor did not do much actual trick-or-treating but he did manage to stay in his costume for about 30 minutes before all the fun tuckered the little dinosaur out!

Ready or not, here we come!

I mean could he be any cuter if he tried!

Grandma Bordwell could not let Connor be the only one dressed up - loved the race car outfit!!

Hanging out post-costume, Connor is still in the Halloween spirit!

 Home sweet home, hanging out with grandma!!

We hope everyone had as much fun this Halloween as we did!!
