Halloween has come and gone this year, and the girls had a wonderful time. I was out of town for a conference for the days leading up to the day (I will post about my great time in New Orleans soon, but for now I will keep focused on the girls!), so I missed a couple of fun parties that the girls (and daddy) attended, but I did arrive home just in time to take the girls Trick-or-Treating around the neighborhood.
While I was away, Daddy took the girls, in their matching Halloween t-shirts, to the park to play. I was so excited because he grabbed my camera and took some great photos (thanks honey!). Below are some of the cute photos of the girls while they played together.
Following the fun at the park, Daddy and the girls went to a couple parties. The Butterfly dressed as a Bumble Bee, with her hair sticking straight up as antennas. The Ladybug went as a sassy Dorothy Gale with sequined red tennies. The girls had a great time playing with friends, bobbing for apples, and laughing and singing the night away.
I finally made it home from New Orleans late Saturday, so I rested up on Sunday, and then it was time to take the girls trick-or-treating. We had an adorable outfit for our Butterfly... keeping with the bug theme she dressed as a Bumble Bee, antenna and all. To finish off the cute outfit, we put some fun little ladybug squeakie shoes on her feet. Yup, a Butterfly dressed as a bumble bee, wearing ladybug squeakie shoes. Gotta love bugs! The Ladybug kept her "cool" by dressing as an Ice Princess, and sparkled her way around the neighborhood the whole night. She looked magical.
Since the Butterfly had never experienced Halloween, she wasn't quite sure what was going on when we started. We walked her up to the path of the first house, then let her sister walk her to the door. As soon as she started walking, the squeakies started squeaking, and people started oohing and aahing. She started grinning from ear to ear, especially when she realized that people were giving her things at each house we visited. She LOVED it!
The Ladybug, of course, also loved her time trick-or-treating, but what made the evening more enjoyable for all of us was watching the Butterfly "float" from house to house. We stayed out for about an hour and then had to call it quits as the baby soon tired herself out with all of the fun.
All in all it was a great night for the family. It will be fun to see what will happen next year.
(As you can tell, this is my favorite photo from our fun evening.)
