Halloween 2010

Our Halloween this year consisted much less of trick-or-treating, and more of dressing up, attending fun events, and visiting the grandparents. The weekend before Halloween, Sophia's school held its annual Fall Carnival. This was about our best attempt to get a photo of Sophia in her Little Bo Peep costume at the official 'photo spot'...


She was really curious about all the people milling around and seeing her friends in costume...


Her favorite part of the carnival was, by far, the pony rides. Do you think she liked it?



We played a few games inside, including the traditional bean bag toss. Sophia, however, got distracted...


We got a photo of Sophia with her teacher, Ms. K. No, Donna is not her real name...it was part of her costume!


Sophia's class was hosting the 'make a spider' activity...



And then, of course, it was time for another round of pony rides!


This is attempt #2 at an 'official' photo of the costume. This was taken on Halloween day, as we were preparing to go trick-or-treat. And by that I mean visit the grandparents. Not the best shot, but cute nonetheless...


This year's goodie bucket...


Pretending to be too shy to knock on Granny and Pa Paw's door...



And then she spies the treat bowl!



After spending some time with Granny and Pa Paw, it was off to Grandma Jean's for stew (and trick-or-treating) and to visit Rudy the peacock!



Not an overly exciting Halloween, but right up our alley. It's not a 'holiday' for us, but rather a chance for Sophia to dress up and be with friends. I'm glad the school had the carnival on a day different from Halloween. I wonder what she'll be next year.........

Those were some great pictures and at I love your family oriented Halloween. It seems so much calmer and less stimulating. She looked amazing in her costume! Glad to see she is doing well
