Wonder-FULL Halloween


This year Halloween was all about our 3 year old, Katie. She took great care in choosing a costume with LOTS of prissy elements: the crown, the tights, the (as she calls them) ballet shoes, the tutu, the wings, the beautiful dress. And all that work I took to create her costume (as well as her Christmas dress) was WELL WORTH IT!! I cannot believe there were no meltdowns.
The evening was perfect - in the upper 60's with no wind or bugs or mud...and our neighbors set up an extravagant cemetery scene with lights and sound that really brought Katie's sense of wonder to its highest peak!
As we trekked from house to house she repeated, "My basket's not full yet!"

Her basket wasn't full because Mummy kept eating the goodies, and Daddy was a close second, too cute that photo is a keeper forever!

What an adorable costume! Kids are soooo cute. My almost 2yr old kept yelling ON TOP (Ian Stop) while trying to keep up with her 7yr old brother. By the end of the night when we asked her to say thank you she would say YUM to the people handing out candy. =D

Oh, I can't believe I forgot to mention that when she saw her dad handing out candy to "her friends" - she took candy out of her own basket and gave them MORE!
Oh, and - esther - it's VERY IMPORTANT to TEST the kids' candy...ya gotta make sure it's not poisonous!!! DUH!

What a little doll! You'll have to get her a smaller basket for next year so that it will be full faster ;)
