Happy Halloween

Halloween is such a fun day. When I was a kid I loved it! I was a witch for several Halloweens (and my Cabbage Patch Kid had a matching costume). I remember the year I was old enough to use a pillow case for trick-or-treating instead of a little bag! As an adult I'm not so into this holiday - not really a big fan of dressing up. But I do love seeing the little ones get dressed up! So before this year's Halloween photo of Peyton and Ella I thought I would do a flashback.

This is Peyton on her 1st Halloween as an adorable Ladybug. She was 11 months old and already walking. I thought she looked so cute in this costume!

The following Halloween we had a new pumpkin in the patch - Ella! Peyton was a Patriots Cheerleader and Ella was the most adorable Winne the Pooh! It was actually pretty easy to get pictures of them since Ella didn't move. Too bad that may have been the last Halloween that it was "easy."

This year it was almost impossible to get any good pictures of these two. Believe they would only sit down for 2 seconds (and I think Ella is already getting up in this pic). They were too busy running around and playing w/ the pumpkins. Peyton is a beautiful princess and Ella is the sweeest little Dorothy complete w/ the shoes (Peyton needed a pair too)!

This year both girls enjoyed helping daddy carve two of the biggest pumpkins I've ever seen. They loved them! They like scooping the seeds out of the pumpkins w/ a spoon. Considering how big those pumpkins are there really wasn't much goop in them!

A couple of weekends ago I attempted to take pictures of the girls at the pumpkin farm. Needless to say it was not as easy as I had thought it would be. The bribes didn't even work as well as they usually do. So this is the best I could do! Good thing they are cute!!

So no trick-or-treating for me tonight. I'll be nice and warm at home. But I hope all the kids out there have a lot of fun getting lots of candy.
