Catching up --- Halloween & Nate's NEW gecko Tummietote!!

We took a little vacation and now I am beyond behind in bloggerville.  These awesome peeps are participating in the NaBloPoMo...... this month

Lora - My Diabetic Child 
Rachael - Pumpsley and Me

so I have a lot of reading to do!!  I'm trying to catch up - I promise!! 

I'm also WAY behind on posting so bear with me while I try and catch up!

Today's catch-up (not ketchup or catsup) post is from last month. 


We had a funtabulous Halloween weekend with our annual Family Fall Festival and then trick or treating in my parent's neighborhood on Halloween evening.

This year was our 4th Annual Family Fall Festival and we had such a great time.  We had sack races, played Red Rover, had a 3-legged race and ate lots and lots of goodies.  Nate and all of the children were running around like crazy and having an absolute wonderful time.  Lucky for Nate all of that running caused his bg to run a bit low so he got to enjoy A LOT of goodies --- including marshmallows!!  He didn't so much like his roasted like the rest of us ---- he liked his straight out of the bag!!

Here are a few pictures from our 4th Annual Family Fall Festival

Below are some of the pumpkin carving contest entries:

Spooky Right?

On to Halloween . . .

I thought you all might enjoy seeing Nate WEARING pants and his AWESOME NEW TUMMIETOTE from Tallygear (this is the one that we won in their give-away):

We love Cowboy Nate (wearing pants) and we love his new Tummietote that Donna custom made for Nate -- 1 pocket only for DexCom, clear window, super cute gecko print in size EXTRA SMALL!!  PERFECT!!

On to Halloween . . . just as we imagined it would be . . . SO FUN!  The girls were both mermaids (again!!) and Nate was a cowboy.  We trick or treated in my parent's neighborhood and had a wonderful time.  Nate was right on track with D --- low from walking so much and then HIGH from the entire bag of M&M's that he devoured but with all of the walking that we did he ended up right on target and it was a prefect night.  We got home, pulled out all of the yummy candy to keep and put a huge bowl out with the rest of the candy on the front porch and it was gone before we knew it.

Our entry for the pumpkin carving contest - we came in 2nd!
