Since Halloween is on a Sunday this year, our neighborhood did the trick or treating part of the holiday last night. So, Audrey was finally able to wear her costume. (Every day for the last two weeks she's begged to wear it, and in an effort to keep the actual day special, I've refused her.) It was so much to see her reaction when I told her it was time to put it on.
Yep, that's her ready to go - she was a fairy this year. Those Tinkerbell shoes' heels light up - they were so fun walking in the dark!
I'm not sure if it's having her hair in mini quasi-buns, or the touch of lavender eye shadow, but for some reason she looks so old in this picture.
And I'm not sure how I feel about it!
As Audrey was sitting on the floor while I took pictures, she started spinning around on her bum, so I took the opportunity to document all 360 degrees.
It was very clear that she truly felt special and very pretty. And who could argue?
Here's the view of our lit Jack-o-Lanterns from the porch as we left for the "Trunk or Treat" activity.
We only had a block to walk,
Audrey had so much fun! Everyone made lots of comments about what a beautiful fairy she made. Audrey really liked that I was dressed up too - I went with the minimalist, under-achiever costume - black cat (which means I wore a black long sleeved shirt and black pants, paired with some cat ears and tail, and called it good), but she really cracked up every time I meowed! It was still funny after I'd cleaned my drawn-on nose and whiskers and taken off the ears and tail. We had a ton of fun together.
Luke and Adam had fun too. They came home and hung out with some Toy Story and treats.
He was feeling a bit better - at least better enough to look at the camera!
All in all, it was a fantastic (and of course, spooky) night! We hope yours' was too!
