We had a great time. The weather was beautiful. The girls didn't have to even wear coats over their costumes. Grandpa and Grandpa Hudnall were with us for the day. Pat, the girls and I went to an auction in the morning and then I made chili with corn bread for dinner.
The costumes were dreamed of by Madeline. She came up with the idea to be Cincerella before and after the ball. Madeline helped grandma pick out fabric scraps for patches and helped sew them on. Madeline even thought of the idea to use a scrub bucket to collect her candy. She enjoyed having me put "dust" on her face, apron, and kerchief. She was a little disappointed when people didn't know who she was but was thrilled when somone "got it".
Lillian was a very pretty Cinderella who lost her slipper on the way home. Actually they both lost slippers on their way home.
Eli made a visit at the end of the night. He had asked if he could come see Lillian in her costume and she was excited for his visit. Cinderella gave a peck on his cheek when he left!! Julie, his mom said he was singing "Lillian is my girlfriend, before they came. Lillian was singing "Eli is my boyfriend", before they came. My hair is turning grey because of all this "love". But, they are cute:).

"Cinderella" before the ball and at the ball.

Getting treats at Allie's.

Grandpa and Eric's pumpkin carving skills.

Best buds. Quite the duo.
