Ole Miss/Auburn GameB and I went to our first college football game in five years (and nine since we’ve been to one by ourselves), and we had a blast! Here are some pictures of our day and some more of our fun happenings for the pre-Halloween weekend…

We started out our weekend by spending Friday night carving pumpkins and watching The Nightmare Before Christmas:

And then on Saturday we left in the morning to head to Oxford for the Auburn/Ole Miss game. You know you have two chatty kids when you spend the first thirty minutes of your trip just sitting in absolute silence, enjoying the fact that you aren’t hearing “HEY MOMMY!” or arguing from the backseat:

It was almost 90 degrees the day of the game, which seems perfectly natural for two days before November (insert eye roll):

Halloween HalloweenIt was so hot out that the boys costumes were a bit incomplete, but they loved them anyway! This was the first year all four of them were REALLY into trick-or-treating and came home with quite a bit of loot. It was a very busy, but great weekend!
