We had lots of fun for Halloween. The girls had parties at school, preschool, and the babysitter's. I was exhausted by Friday night and still had Saturday and Sunday activities to go! Once again, Grandpa Pat was busy making costumes!!
Friday morning I couldn't convince Lillian to wear her Halloween shirt because she created her own with the stickers Aunt Janelle sent.
Little Red Riding Hood ready for Preschool party.
Madeline's class getting ready for their "parade" of costumes at school.
Party at Trina's
SATURDAY - Great Grandma and Grandpa and Grandma and Grandpa Hudnall came up for downtown trick or treating and then had lunch with us. It was a full day for everyone with the Huskers playing a great football game and volleyball game.
"Elizabeth" ( Madeline's colonial American Girl Doll), Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf ready for some candy Saturday morning at the downtown trick or treat.
What a fine lady!!
Don and Gaylene's house.
The girls with their beloved babysitter during the summer. Allie was part of a haunted house in the neighborhood. They did a "nice" run through with the kids.
Lillian and Eli finding it easier to trick-or-treat when you get a ride.
This summer on our way to Yellowstone National Park, Lillian had decided she wanted a pink cowboy hat. I thought "okay, no problem". There were none to be found.
She kept saying she wanted one because her friend Eli was a cowboy for Halloween the year before and this way she could be a cowgirl. I pointed out to her that Eli did not want to be a cowboy again for Halloween. She didn't care. She still wanted a pink cowboy hat. So....she turned to the expert..Grandpa Gary. She called him and made the request for her birthday. Surprisingly, he had a terrible time finding one. It was up to Grandma Trudy to find one on her way through the state the weekend of her birthday party. No luck on the way east, but on her way home she found one in a store between Lincoln and Crawford and had it shipped to Lillian.
She was very excited to find the hat in the box and now is very determined to acquire a pair of pink cowboy boots. I'm sure Grandpa Gary will be happy to oblige. Hint, Hint,.... start looking now!
