I have tons of pictures to share so here are some bullet points about our day, to keep things (semi) short and sweet!
1) Our Halloween party went really well this morning! We had 3 moms and 8 munchkins. We lost one mom and kid last minute do to illness, but big brother still got to come over and party! They played in the toy room, had lunch and Halloween treats, and all went home for good naps! We are going to try and get together regularly now --fun stuff.
2) Raya LOVED trick or treating this year. We went to main street where they were doing a little trick or treat "town" and you could go into all the businesses and get candy and do little games and such. We got lots of oohs and ahhs as we pushed angel baby Brielle in her stroller and devil child Raya walked alongside hehe. Raya acted like an angel all night though because she was just in 7th heaven getting all of her candy!
3) After main street we did some door to door trick or treating as well. Brielle and I stayed in the car and drove slowly alongside Lee and Raya who went door to door. Raya kept saying "More candy! More Treat! This way!" LOL. She was a fan.
4) We ended at my parents' house. My mom was dressed as Wilma --her and her doctor went as Fred and Wilma at work today and won first place :-P
Now for some pictures---enjoy!!!! (and don't forget to check my update from this morning---I announced the winner of my Etsy giveaway!)
|I didn't want Brielle to get her white costume dirty this morning|
so she just dressed festively in Raya's hand me downs :-)
|Bubbles were a big hit at the party today!|
|Our new friend is about 2 months younger than Raya--and about 1/2 the size of my chunkbutt :-)|
|Our little pirate just couldn't stay away from the tutu today!|
|Sawyer, Raya, and Harper have all worn this costume!|
|My favorite picture. Brielle is like "Mama! These brats are stealing all of my food!!! |
(Harper's new friend is Sam, who is a tad older than Brielle)
|This was my homemade attempt at a last minute "poker", but I didn't think she would wear the tail|
and I wanted her to have another accessory. Well go figure, she suddenly fell in love with the tail about 10 minutes
before we left LOL
|The evil "Scrunchface" :-)|
|"What the hell *is* this thing?! No, seriously...."|
|A very *tired* angel baby|
|She was scared of Grandma at first LOL|
