I really love Halloween. I have loved it even more this year! Kaylee has been so much fun! At the Sawyer's House there is a big green Frankenstein, and every time we leave the Bringhurst's house, she says, "Lets go see the BIG GREEN MONSTER!" She also keeps track of the 'pumpkin man' across the street. When we go out during the day and he's not blown up, she says, "Pumpkin man fell down!" with a really concerned face. I just explain to her he is sleeping. She doesn't seem to be afraid of things the way she used to. She thinks its all such a fun game!
Last Saturday we decorated Halloween cookies at the Faussett's
Here's Kaylee rolling the doe
Spider oreo cookie. I love Kaylee's serious face in this picture. She's trying not to let the legs fall off this poor spider.
Collection of our artwork!!!
Cookies of special mention: Garfield...
....and the icecream cone. Both by Darin, of course.
I love the expression on her face here.
Look at us. We look beat. I guess making cookies takes all day when you have 2 small babies and a toddler to take care of!
Darin, you put all our cookies to shame! Way to go!
I had to throw in this picture for my mom. She bought these for the girls for Kaylee's birthday! They are ADORABLE! I really love it when they match!
When I asked Kaylee what she wanted to be for Halloween this year, she put her finger to her chin, thought about it, and said, "I'm a ladybug!" So here it is, thanks to Cindy for finding it. About a week later Kaylee said, "I'm a WITCH!" and I said, nope, too bad, I already got your ladybug costume. I tried to avoid the topic until Halloween, and when the time came, she was happy to be a ladybug again.
I couldn't get Brenna to take a picture by herself. She was freaking out and had to have her binky. She semi cooperated with Kaylee in the picture. If you can't tell, she's a
My little sweet pea.
The night before Halloween, we did the 'Trunk or Treat' with the West Point people. It was so fun to see so many people there that I haven't seen in ages! There are too many to even list here, so I won't. It was so fun. There was a soup and rolls potluck, and afterward of course trick-or-treating.
Ladybug and butterfly...friend or foe?
She wasn't afraid of the fake spider rings on the tables! Look, she even put one on her FINGER! She was showing everyone her ring, particularly strange people she didn't know.
Halloween morning we went to the kid's parade at Mckay Dee Hospital where I work. Instead of taking Kaylee through to get more candy, we tried to give her a lesson in sharing by having her pass out candy instead. She actually really loved it! Even when the parade was over, she was going up to people and kids trying to give them her candy.
Thanks Kaylee, Roger, and Remy for coming with us!
Cute little bumble bee.
This man deserves an award.
Another attempt at a family picture. Neither kids are looking. At least Kaylee's not scowling!
