"pumpkins scream in the dead of night"


grant and i are finally starting our costumes tonight. just like every year... we wait until the very end. and then it's a very stressful two weeks because we are cramming and have to get every little detail just perfect ;). if any of you out there are having a halloween party or know of one.. please invite us. we put so much work into costumes... and then sort of NEED A PLACE TO GO!

other than that we are taking some family pictures this week that i am super excited for. and yes family as in me and grant. i don't know any guy who actually really likes getting his picture taken but grant is such a good sport. and i TOTALLY take advantage of it. i have a feeling that it's going to turn out to be more of a photo shoot. there is no way that i can narrow it down for us to only wear one outfit. also grant had the swine flu for a day. but apparently that is kind of common? maybe i'll get it too? i was supposed to stay away from him. ya right.

oh poor grant! that is a bummer! i hope he feels better soon. can i just tell you how much i love that you guys are so into your costumes? i think it is so awesome. i really need some help encouraging sean. if you find an awesome party let us know!!

Chloé said...

oh, p.s. who is that in the picture?? i was going to say it's super cute, but then i thought it may be grant, and want him to know that sean dresses up as a girl all the time, so there is nothing to be ashamed of!

I am having a halloween party too if you want...

Ryan ♥ Breelyn said...

Oh I hope you don't get that flu! We've been doing the thieves oil and so far we've been safe!
Okay I feel like I have so much to catch up on with you-first of all the post about the Blogging is so well said! I have totally felt that way for a while. I always tell Ryan that I want to make our blog private for just the two of us because I love printing off the pages and all that but I feel the same way you do about it and then Ryan reminds me how many family members we have that only keep up with us through the blog and I push the idea out of my mind. But still I feel exactly how you do. Good reminder.
The Video was adorable! I wish I knew how to make those. You are talented the way you did the sound and stuff! I'm impressed!
And I was laughing so dang hard at the recount of that kitchen dance story.
And finally I wish you the best of luck on your costumes! We were going to be Max and Carole from Where the Wild Things Are but then we saw the movie and HATED IT so now we're starting from ground zero again. AH! I don't have the time or patience to make anything so hopefully we'll find something to buy. I'm letting Ryan choose.
Holy longest post of my life-there were just so may new things to comment on.

Jess and Matt said...

oh I am so excited to see the costumes! And I am so excited to see the pictures you two take. You are so beautiful and I am sure the family photos will be perfect. Matt used to get herpes on his lip sometimes and would refuse to kiss me, I hated it! If he had the swine flu I am sure I would get it too. How can we stay away from these cute, sweet boys of ours? We can't!

Chloé said...

haha, okay that makes me feel SOOOOO much better. seriously? you have no idea. i sent out like ten, to people that my parents really wanted me to, and the rest? ugh. i don't know. i keep saying i am so busy and will do them eventually. but truth is? i'm not busy. we all know i just don't want to. i feel like everyone should just make a rule that we don't have to send out thank you cards. everyone should know i am very thankful. i gave away a little treat bag at the reception that said thank you! how much more must i do?!? okay now i sound like a brat and you can judge me. but anyway, your comment made me feel lots better. i almost hired my friend to do them for me. that's how badly i don't want to do them. and i don't want to spend just as much on stamps as i did sending out invites. maybe if i ever get married again, i will send a thank you card with the invite?

Michael & Mindy said...

I love this. And I JUST posted about not having Halloween parties to go to. And I'm excited to see your family pictures. And I feel like a weirdo because I comment on almost every one of your posts. And I think that's enough..

Ryan ♥ Breelyn said...

Ha ha ha are you kidding me!?!?! No way! Well I still LOVE the book and think you guys will be darling as that! How funny.
Don't get too excited for us it will be store bought and I had my husband chose it so it's a total boy thing :)

David and Shalynna said...

Swine flu!!!!! We can't be friends. Tell Grant to stay away from David. :)

We were invited to a Halloween party. I'll see how big it is going to be (if it's just a small get together, you might not want to even come) and then I'll see if I can invite you! That would be fun to see you guys all dressed up. I always loved seeing Grant and Wes' costumes every year.

Chloé said...

haha, oh my gosh brittany you ALWAYS look flawless. i just adjusted the lighting because in the picture it looked funny. i did nothing to your face! i almost didn't want to post it because sitting next to you i look hideous! yeah, that video gets me everytime... i get chills watching it. whenever i hear that song..my heart skips a beat. cheesey, but true.

Chloé said...

awww! that is exactly what i want Sean to do! but knowing my luck it will be in a new house and he will probably drop me or i will bang my head on the door. haha. haha. my luck? i make it sound so unlucky if we were to ever get a new house. i sound bratty, but i promise i dont mean it like that. anyway, no i have not seen that movie and i have always wanted to! i think i saw clips of it on disney or something once. not that i watch disney all the time or anything..pause. :)

okay, i have soooooooooooo sooooooooooo much to say write now and i feel like i'm going to lose my train of thought before i get it all down.
first of all you SHOULD HAVE SEEN US making those pictures. I was eating cereal and milk and cereal almost came out of my nose after i made the science one of grant and preston. hahahaha just thinking about it i'm laughing. The comment about your dad in 1960 was so funny...cause i can totally see it!!! And your beard comment, hahaha, I went back and looked after i read that... and it kinda does! ha. All of Cohens pictures crack. me. up.
I'm glad Grant is feeling better. All that flu stuff is just starting to get so annoying!! So I'm glad it's nothing worse.
Seriously Britt it was so fun to see you. I love our talks and i think sometimes i forget how much fun we have together (since we don't get together too often anymore) but then I'm always reminded and I love it! Maybe we could go to that "decades" store sometime, i can't stop thinking about it. And Cohen told me he loves hanging out with the adults cause he can stay up past his bedtime and wants to do it more ;)
Thanks for telling me about your lunch with Trudy and Jess. I'm no where near where I want to be as far as balance in my life, but I do think balance in life is what makes you happy, so I'm working on it! But that was seriously so sweet what Trudy said. And I'm glad that made sense to you what I was saying (at least i hope it did) cause I was kinda rambling and not sure if i was even making sense ha. Anyway, i think trudy is so cute and sweet and i've learned so much from her blog too.
okay.. this is getting tooooooo long. Love you britt :)
oh, last thing, if you were in logan you know we would love for you two to be part of our halloween party! .... if ya wanna make the drive.. ha

The Hopkins said...

oh i just remembered... i wanted to say i totally knew you were teasing about that post... but I'm glad you did cause i think a lot of good came from it, ha. I decided I'd make those pictures since we didn't take any that night. And they turned out freaking hilarious.
