Happy Halloween!

As mentioned in a previous post, Toby and I are not that big in to Halloween. No costume parties for us. Barely any trick-or-treaters. But, as this is Sophia's first Halloween, we decided to dress her up, and at least go call on the grandparents. We didn't want her to be alone, so we also decided to get costumes for our four legged children. May I present...

Bumble the Bee (aka Dharma)..


Mini the Purple Monkey (aka Ami)..


and of course Lady Bug Slinkard (aka Sophia)..


Here they are getting in some
play time before trick-or-treating...


I wish I had a better picture of Ami's costume, but trust me - it was adorable!

We first went to Granny and PaPaw's house. Sophia's costume was designed to be a sort of bag that you zip the child into. Well, that worked fine, except that Sophia's legs were too crowded. So, when we got to Granny's, we promptly got the scissors, and made some little leg holes. So much better! And, no trip to the grandparent's house would be complete without a photo op...


Then, we went to visit Granddad Tobe and Grandma Jean. They gave Sophia a goodie bag with some fresh fruit. Sophia loves for us to peel some fresh fruit and let her gnaw on it with her two teeth! Here's Granddad helping Sophia show off the back of her ladybug costume!

We thought about trick-or-treating in the neighborhood, but Sophia was tired (and so were we), so we decided to call it a night. Nothing too exciting, but such a cute kid and such adorable canine cuteness!

All three of your children looked adorable. Great job on picking out the costumes-hate I missed them.
