The annual Halloween party

Every year of Ava's life, and Norah's as well, we have attended a great Halloween party at Auntie Jessica's work.  She hasn't worked there the last two years, but that hasn't stopped us!  We are grateful that they still invite us back!  (Or Jessica convinces them to, whatever the case may be...)
Sadly, I forgot my real camera.  I was having one of those days.  In fact, most of the day I was convinced Norah would not be allowed to go.  She was in full on fit mode all morning.  I vowed that unless she took a nap, I was not taking her.  (She refused the first attempt while Ava was at school)
She did reluctantly get a quick nap in, so all was forgiven.  Except now all we have is blurry pictures.  I'm blaming it on her, she threw off my day.  : )
Fortunately we will have three days in total for photos in these costumes so it's not too tragic.

This party was fantastic, it never disappoints!  All kinds of candy, crafts, games, pizza, cupcakes, even WINE.  Yay!
As many Halloween gigs as these lucky little girls get to attend I really should consider letting them have multiple costumes each year!  

The only flaw with that plan is my bargain shopping would be thrown a little.  As it stands I spent about $6 on Norah's and $10 on Ava's and you can bet we will be recycling in all the candy that isn't our favorite to hand out tonight!   We do seem to have a lot of favorites though...  : )

Just for fun, here's a look back on the last 3 years at Jessica's work parties:

So fun!  Glad we have been able to keep up the tradition!

Silly Faces

 The next two days will likely be filled with these kids in their costumes, again.  So here's what they actually look like before that happens, as I am sure you are likely to forget.  : )

 Now bring on the candy!!

Georgia turns two.

 On Saturday we attended little miss Georgia's birthday celebration.  This little sweetie is about to turn two.
 My girls had a wonderful time playing with all the kids & I enjoyed talking with all the adults.

 I adore their whole family. 
 I love this picture, Happy Birthday sweet little Georgia!!

Costume Fun!

We got invited to a little Halloween thing Chris & D'Auna's church put on Saturday.  It was called Trunk or Treat, they filled a parking lot full of cars with their trunks open & decorated for the kids to trick-or-treat to.  So fun!
 Here's our cute little witch & peacock.

 Love these guys at pirates!  
It was funny at some point in the evening I saw Alayah crying and I told D'Auna, "some woman is holding Alayah, she is crying." D'Auna looks over and says "That's Chris" hahahaha
 Colton, the ninja!

 Our little peacock wasn't sure about this scene right away.  She was in a mood.  Until people started giving her candy...
 The fortune teller.

 Walking the plank through shark infested waters.
 A trunk full of candy, yay!

 Happy little candy collector!
 Alayah and Norah ran around together all night, back and forth, having a great time.  They even got most of the kids involved in their game, it was a hit!
 This family is SUPER.  LOVE their costumes!!
 Love these kids.
Thank you so much Chris & D'Auna for the invite!  We had a great time!
 Our wonderful neighbors called me when we got home and asked if they could come over and have us take a few pictures of them before they headed out to a costume contest.  I was thrilled of course, not only do we get to see them in costume but photos??  You know I love that!! 

 How cute are they??!?  

I love Halloween!!  Why don't I ever dress up?  I need to start, maybe next year.  : )

Back to the Pumpkin Patch.

We had a great time meeting up with Madeline, Logan & baby Kelly at the pumpkin patch on Tuesday, I finally edited the photos, brace yourselves, there are a million of them. Shocking, I know...

 I LOVE this one.
 And this.

 Ava found lots of friends to play with there, hay fight!!

 You are so cute Madeline!  I can't wait until Kelly can get out for photos.  She was missing out!

 The many faces of Logan...

 What a fun day!! Love our sweet friends!
