We have had a week full of Halloween celebrations.
On Tuesday, we had a the Trunk or Treat at church. We had to hold it inside because it was raining. I didn’t get a lot of pictures of the actual Trick-or-Treating portion because it was pretty much mass chaos on the hallways where all of the kids were. Mikayla was excited to dress up for her premiere showing as Tinkerbell.
On Friday, Mikayla’s preschool hosted a costume parade. It was a lot of fun seeing all of the kids dressed up – there was some really cute costume. There were a couple of fairies, but I do believe that Mikayla was the only Tinkerbell.
After the Trick-or-Treating, they had a Halloween party full of yummy goodies, stories and crafts. Mikayla had a lot of fun and I was happy to be able to be there with her.
So, finally, tonight was the “big” night. We were a little worried that the weather and rain was going to spoil our plans, but we had nothing more than a heavy drizzle. So with umbrellas in hand, we were able to go out and have a fun time. Mikayla had a great time, but she was also fairly patient in waiting for her slow moving little brother. The were so cute together!
This is my handsome little Peter Pan. You can guess how long that hat stayed on his head, but it was pretty cute for the 30 seconds that it did. He had a lot of fun this year and really enjoyed going to the houses and saying “tweee!” (treat)
This is my cute little nephew, Andrew. He was a turtle – such a cute costume! He was so laid back and really seemed to enjoy watching his crazy cousins.
Gavin, on the other hand, who had no candy, was wired and ready to go all night.
I just love these special occasions with my children – they make for wonderful memories!
