Happy Halloween!

This little one doesn’t like getting dressed up. She doesn’t like things on her head. She doesn’t like fancy dresses. She barely lets me put her hair up. But after showing her Wizard of Oz music on YouTube, doing a “practice round” of trick-or-treating at a Friday night Trunk-or-Treat, she had a great time dressing up in her Dorothy costume and visiting our neighbors tonight! More candy? Yes, please!





Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from our little Minnie Mouse. Lil’ Miss K wouldn’t keep her ears on for more than two seconds. I got one sad photo with the ears. In fact, she even threw a fit when I tried to put on the bloomers, and I had to distract her with my phone to draw on her black nose. She definitely has a mind of her own!

Days 303-304: Tricks & Treats

Since we don’t get trick-or-treaters at our apartment, we were happy to help out with Trunk or Treat at our church yesterday evening. I loved seeing all the creative costumes. And today our American Cancer Society office was transformed into the American Zombie Society for a Halloween luncheon. We ate brains (a potato bar) and learned all about how to survive a Zombie Apocalypse.


(FYI: Saturday’s photos will be posted in a day or two – I have about 250 photos from Making Strides Against Breast Cancer to sort through!)

Platte Woods United Methodist had hundreds of trick-or-treaters at their annual Trunk or Treat.

Day 300: A week full of surprises

When we got home yesterday evening, we had package of homemade Halloween cookies waiting for us in the mailbox. And they were still in once piece! Thanks to my thoughtful family for including us when we couldn’t be there for the cookie decorating. Have I mentioned how much I love this time of year? 🙂
