Thanks to my mom for making some of the cutest costumes I've ever seen. It doesn't hurt that they were worn by my adorable little sweeties, but seriously, I loved their pea outfits! Thanks Mom!
We took the girls out in a wagon and Ava wanted NOTHING to do with sitting in the wagon so she had to be carried by daddy. So instead of 3 peas in a pod, we had 2 peas in a pod and a "Pea-Daddy" combo...get it, like P-Diddy? Ok, so enough of my humor...let's get to the pictures and video.

Here is a picture of Alexis from the final fitting the other night.

I need to do some explaining for the rest of the pictures though. Really, I need to explain myself in these pictures. After taking the girls around for a bit, we had to rush off to a surprise 30th birthday party for my best friend April! (Happy Early-30th Birthday April, We love you!) Luckily, April's husband Matt was throwing the party at his Aunt & Uncle's house which happens to be in my parent's neighborhood. So we took the girls around in the wagon for about 5 houses (maybe even less), my dad brought us the golf cart, we loaded the wagon in the back with 2 peas, I held the 3rd and Jeff drove us to the other side of the subdivision so we could be there in time to yell SURPRISE! Then we hightailed it back to my parents house, dropped off the girls so they could have their bedtime bottle and hit the sack. Thanks to my parents and Tammy and Thomas for helping get the girls ready for bed and then watching them while we headed back to the party.

Since it was a combo Birthday/Halloween party, Jeff and I needed to attend in costume. Since I don't get out much and had no creativity left in me to make something fun, I decided to"get a little physical" and combine everything I could think of from the 80's. I call it my
Debbie Gibson/Olivia Newton-John/Cyndi Lauper outfit.
Or maybe it's just me being a crazy mom of triplets that "just wanted to have fun"! Ok, enough with the puns, I promise.
Pay no attention to the crazy mom with pink hair. Instead check out my husband who went as himself (or bouncer GATOR) from about 15 years ago. Complete with Def Leppard back stage pass and everything. He even tucked his jeans into his boots like he used to when he worked. Yea, he really did that. ha! So while our costumes weren't the most original, I figured halloween was all about making people laugh...even if it is at yourself. I figure I need to get used to dress up and costumes...I am the mom of 3 little girls!
Ok, so enough of my rambling. Enjoy the video (in the next post) of us getting the girls into their costumes, their pod-wagon and trying to get a few family photos. Happy Halloween!
