October for the Mussatos was super busy. We started the first weekend with birthday invites to three separate parties but only made it to two. This is Reese with a hired Rapunzel who painted the girls fingernails. There were also chicken salad & pimiento cheeses sandwiches, a mimosa bar, and bounce house. Three year old parties are serious stuff around here!
We've had some very pleasant nights and have enjoyed spending as much time outdoors before the super cold weather hits in a few weeks. This is a pic of the kids peeking at Ryan as he mows the grass.
And a pic I captured of the whole house with the two peeking out.
My nephew Hayes spent the night with us for the first time Columbus Day weekend and then my parents drove the other cousins up the next day to play at our house. I also took the three big kids to see Ninjago at the movie theater and they had so much fun.
Ryder had his very first school bus ride and field trip last Friday! He has made lots of new school friends and they had a great time at Old Baker Farm.
He insisted that we carve his pumpkin when he got home that afternoon which was basically me doing all the work while the kids threw the pumpkin seeds into the backyard.
We hosted friends one weekend and Ryan smoked several chickens that were so yummy. We had leftover for days and we may do that again soon. At one point of the day we had 9 kids at our house & I am still finding Nerf bullets in the bushes!
Finally, we celebrated Halloween this week with trick or treating with friends. Reese was the most beautiful Anna from Frozen and Ryder was a Lego Ninjago. The last pic is our friend Nora who was Pinkalicious from her favorite book.
