Here are some highlights from today's Halloween festivities. Olivia enjoyed dressing up to go to school. She wore her costume all day. The kids went on a parade around the block. Olivia came home with a huge bag of goodies.
Jacob came over for the yearly Halloween photo. It went much better this year. I think Jennifer and I need to coordinate their costumes next year in order to get the perfect shot!
Finally, we all enjoyed trick or treating. Olivia went with Sarah-Kate and Oscar. They went around the whole neighborhood. At first Olivia was timid and worried about which house had a dog, but that passed quickly when she realized how much fun she could have. Everyone thought she played the perfect part of Tinkerbell. At one time she even sounded like her by saying
"I can't walk anymore....BUT.... I CAN FLY!!! Priceless!
FYI-The big blow up decorations were not at my house.

This was a trial run on the Halloween costume. Olivia was Tinkerbell! She wore it for the first time this past Sunday for trick your trunk downtown by the courthouse. She looked quite cute when she wasn't knocking people with her glittery wings! Too cute!

Last night was pumpkin carving night. Olivia actually stuck her hand in the pumpkin and cleaned most of the the gunk out. Amazing! This was quite a change from last year when she would hardly put her little finger inside the pumpkin. Olivia drew on her own face and Michael carved it out for her. Her pumpkin is the baby one in the middle. Michael has the really tall skinny one, and my pumpkin is short and round! We even toasted a few pumpkin seeds for Olivia. Yummy!!!

A Little Halloween Fun

Olivia decorated the house for Halloween. She painted our front windows by the door. It looks cute, and she had a great time doing it.
