The Halloween Post

It was a long week last week. Poor little Elle was not feeling good and between a cold, some major teething and a diaper rash that ended up needed a prescription cream, she was a mess. I spent Wednesday and Thursday afternoon home with her and then all day Friday and all she wanted to do was be in my arms, with her head on my shoulder, one thumb in her mouth and the other hand in my hair as I rocked her. We literally spent hours like that last week. :( It was so sad. She is normally such a happy, playful girl.

Even so, it was her first Halloween, so I was determined that she was going to get dressed up and go out with us. Ali wasn't feeling great either so we only did a few house immediately around us. Since she's only 3, she didn't realize there should have been more to it than that and was content to go back to the house and dig into the candy she got from those few houses.

This girl is so ready to be walking!

In addition, their school had a Trunk or Treat party. I didn't get great pictures of the carriage. I had put it together real fast, got a few photos of Ali and the she was off to spend the next hour and a half in the bounce house. She literally left it for about 10 minutes to trick or treat. 

So, the carriage was a little crooked because she was absolutely drooling to get to the bounce house and I told her she had to wait until I got the carriage together. I did fix it but then didn't get any more pictures. I also intended to have curtains in the 'window' of the carriage as well as pumpkins and other decorations in front of it, but with Elle so sick all week, it just didn't happen. Oh well. Everyone knew what it was and all the little three and four year old's thought the whole party was fantastic, which it was!

All in all, it was a great Halloween, even through the not feeling well.

  1. Oh I'm so sorry your girls have been sick! That is no fun, but I'm glad you were still able to go out for Halloween. I can't believe how fast your baby is growing up! Both of your girls are adorable and I'm so impressed with the carriage! I LOVE the Cinderella and pumpkin idea too. Too cute!
