Whew, what a Halloween whirlwind!! We have had such a fun day of parties. We started with our MOTs Halloween get together, and we all enjoyed a beautiful day outside, playing in the yard. Helen Grace did pretty well in her monkey suit, but she wouldn’t wear the hat OR the shoes. She was still pretty dang cute though with her pink bows. Later, we stopped by my coworker Ginna’s house and let the babies run around together (she has a 2 yr old little girl). Then we trick or treated at Uncle CB’s house down the street and saw his puppy, Manning, who is now a HUGE dog! And we finally made it to the Anglins’ house for dinner. Helen Grace followed Courtlyn around, and I thought we would never get her out of Courtlyn’s play room…until the trick or treaters arrived! HG once again ran to the door to help give out candy. She cracks me up, and we had so much fun watching the girls play together.
I found/made her a little mini me monkey, complete with pink bows. Will didn’t like his puppy dog outfit. Patting Emsley the kittyPlaying with Callum HG just wanted to hug Caroline in that bumble bee suit- too funny! We tried and tried to get a group pic. This is the best we could do. Checking out Manning the bull…October 2010The two of them…April 2010. It’s amazing what a difference six months can make. Playing with Courtlyn- she LOVED the chalk! AND the Glo Doodle thingie. She carried it around all night. And I finally got her back in her monkey outfit.
And this is what we had at the end of the night…a whiny, wallowing mess on the floor! P.S. Of course I can’t get this on camera, but if you ask Helen Grace what a monkey says, she doesn’t make any noise but she pulls her arms up like a monkey- ha!
