halloween

Halloween night. Our first, real trick-or-treating experience. Last year, we went out with Holly and Jamie, but the girls didn't really know what was going on. This year, Sadie could actually say "trick or treat!"
Here we are with our buds Angela and Brayden. Sadie was a Ladybug (2nd year in a row. hey, it still fit and I felt horribly ill most of last week.) and Brayden was a bumble bee so we had little insects buzzing around us for the night. Jack was a "Jack-o-lantern." He was calm and mellow for his first Halloween. I was impressed! We went over to a neighborhood where several of our friends live and did a little trick-or-treating. Sadie loves candy, but was perplexed with the whole "begging" part. She was really cautious and looked sort of lost. Brayden wanted to eat everything he got RIGHT after he got it. None of this putting it in the bag and saving it for later stuff. And if there were any toys left around the yard or in an open garage, he'd go for it and start playing. It was so funny! Jack slept for a good ways of it. He was a really cute pumpkin!

Those two babies look sooooo cute!
Halloween was way more fun this year since the girls are old enough now to get the hang of the whole trick-or-treating thing.

Courtney, you look great!
Oh, and don't feel bad about a repeat costume. Brennan was a fire man two years in a row (though we had to get new coat b/c his was so "loved" it wouldn't work again) and Jackson wore a pumpkin costume two years in a row as well...though the second year on Halloween night he was a bee.
Don't you love Jack the Jack-o-Lanterns????

Courtney, you are gorgeous. How did your hair get so long so fast?! You seriously look like a model, I'm not even joking. The kids are so adorable and Sadie is as always the cutest Sadie bug around. I'm glad you had a good time, even if Sadie was cautious- smart girl! I'm always caustious with strangers too! Tell her Pey Pey says hello ;-)

Courtney you look so great!!! I think I was Batgirl like 7 times growing up so I for one think its cool to have repeat costumes. Why mess with a good thing?
