When school was over we dropped her friend off at home and picked up Rebecca. We stayed for a while where I had the best cup of coffee and held the cutest newborn for almost two hours while I chatted with my good friend. The girls played and made a big mess, but fun was had by all! So much fun that they didn't want to leave.
After nap time, I got the girls ready in their costumes. Shannon decided she didn't want to wear her Alice in Wonderland, but instead her Jaguar costume from her dance recital last year. We put this costume on her and got Rebecca all dressed as Tinkerbell (her favorite dress up item she wears everyday), and headed outside for some photos. After some photos, Shannon decided she wanted to where something else. We tried on an Angel, Devil and FINALLY the Flower Girl! (Boy am I glad I ordered that costume online!)
We headed over a friends house for a pizza party. This is where Shannon changed once again...I never can keep clothes on her for long and we go through LOTS of laundry. Why should Halloween be any different? I did eventually get her back in her costume and we headed to another friends house to go trick or treating. We took some more photos of the kids and made our way to the tractor they made for the kids to ride while trick or treating. The girls loved the hayride and they even learned the "Trick or treat smell my feet" song!!! We spent about an hour going from house to house and they couldn't wait to see what they got next. I ran into many friends and it was nice seeing all the kids in their costumes. This was the neighborhood to be on Halloween night! Both side of the street were lined with cars and everyone knew everyone.
After trick or treating we headed back to the house and all the kids played for an hour. (More like ran around crazy from all the candy they ate!) We headed home and I put the girls right to bed. The best part was they slept in late the next morning! What more could a mom ask for?
