Boo!!

I hope your Halloween was a happy one! Our family decided to visit Aili and Mike's house for dinner and taking the kids out for trick or treating.

My sister is a great cook - we enjoyed some seriously fantastic chili (perfect for a cold autum night) and totally cutie pumpkin cookies!


Joseph decided that he wanted to be Cyborg, a DC comics superhero in Teen Titans. I thought he was dressed up like a character from the movie Tron! If you look closely, Mara is bundled up on the couch in the background. A few hours before we arrived she started feeling sick, so she missed out on trick or treating this year.

Miss Baby Elena, however, came to the rescue in her pink super girl outfit to save the day and get some candy for her sick older sister!!

People, I am telling you, I almost melted in to a puddle of love this little girl is so sweet, and brave and spunky and funny and just awesome. It was her first Halloween and it was great to be there for it! After the kids went to bed we enjoyed a marginally scary movie. All in all a great Halloween! Thanks Aili for a great dinner!!

Oh it was just so sad, Sally. It was a stomach bug and was totally gone by the next morning. The kids shared their candy with her. So, boo on being sick. Aili caught it the next day too!! yikes!

Miss baby Elena was ready to go at it again the next morning. She promptly requested her costume be put on, grabbed her Elmo bucket and went and stood by the door. The girl is a Canessa!

Yes she is. No fear or trepidation at all. That she will learn in school. RIGHT!?

Aw... Halloween is so much better with little ones about. Glad you got to enjoy good food and good company :-)

I loved how you enjoyed a "marginally" scary movie ;-)

These pictures are so adorable! These little kiddos are lucky to have an awesome mama and a cool Aunt Lucy.

JAPRA - Oh my that movie was just so blah! I guess that's pretty bad actually, when a scary movie leaves you shrugging...

Laura - You flatterer.
