Happy Halloween!

It's true that Halloween is even better when you have kids. Costumes on babies and toddlers is one of my favorite things I have decided. We're getting ready to go to Disneyland for Halloween, but here are a few pics of our pre-Halloween festivities.


Steve's co-worker (boss) had a little pumpkin carving party at his house and Steve printed off a Dora template for us to carve. Easton loved it and I think it turned out pretty well. I don't know if you can see in the pics, but it looks just like her, and it's fun to have her glowing face on our porch.

My cutest elephant. He loves elephants, so it was perfect because Reagan wore this last year, so we just borrowed it. If I can get it together, my costume for the ward party will be a ring master/circus trainer. The trike wasn't supposed to be one of his tricks, but I thought it was pretty cool to see an elephant on a radio flyer. We went to a great little party at a friend's house and it was fun to see all the little kids on their costumes.
HERE WE COME!!!

So cute- your pictures are adorable! I love the 'dirty farm' post- its true you think animals are so cute and then you're like "whew- they stink!"

Oh man, I can't believe it! We're going to Disneyland tomorrow!!! And then I leave in the middle of the night back to Belgium! You'll miss me by a day! That would've been so great to see you! One of these Christmases. Isn't that sad? It's come to this. Oh well, I guess that just how it goes now.

Oh I love Halloween. I am totally missing out on it this year. I'll be on a plane all day long. I wanted to dress up but that wouldn't be comfortable to wear for 24 hours straight.Be the ring master. What a great idea. I love couple outfits! Have fun in Disneyland! I'm so excited! We'll be there Thursday, I'm assuming you won't be there until Friday.

I loved your Dora pumpkin, or should I say Reagan loved it! Easton looked so good in the elephant. I am glad that he wore it for a little while. I am excited to hear and see pictures from Disney!

Kara said...

Easton made such a cute Elephant and makes the best elephant noises too! Wish he and Nathan would have been a little more cooperative for a picture, but maybe tomorrow.
The pumpkin does look pretty cool. Even if it is Dora!

Oh wow Disneyland sounds so fun! If we didn't have FRONT ROW tickets to the Blazers vs. Suns game on Saturday we'd totally jump in the car and come join you. We've been looking for an excuse to go. Have a great time! Your little elephant is adorable!

Meg said...

How fun you are headed for Disneyland? Did you buy your tickets already? I heard they sell fast.

Have a super fun time!!!

Super cute elephant.

Carol and Bruce said...

I love the Dora pumpkin and all my little girls would too, I'll have to show them when it's over so they don't want me to carve her.

Keep track of my little elephant in Disneyland and have a wonderful time. I wish I could see his face when he sees it all.
I hope you are feeling better!

Brynne, Aaron and Cade said...

Have fun at Disneyland! Aaron says we'll go for my birthday when Cade is 5 or so. Halloween there sounds like a blast! Can't wait to see pictures.

Two words. TOO CUTE!!!!!

Halloween in Disneyland... the happiest place on earth?!?! I'm so jealous! Have a FANTASTIC time and take lots of pictures! My family's neighbors take their little girl to D-land for Halloween every year. I've heard the candy haul is outrageous, but they mix in some healthy snacks too, like granola bars and raisins. Let me know how Easton does... we're thinking of taking Ethan when we visit Sean's family for Christmas.
Have fun!!

AMY AND MIKEY said...

SO CUTE! He is so cute!

The Grahams said...

definitely the cutest elephant ever! I am jealous of you guys going to disneyland!! Hope you have a ton of fun! I will be looking forward to the post from that- i am curious to hear how Easton liked it- we are thinking about going next summer, but are not sure if Jackson would be old enough to enjoy it yet and can go on rides. Happy Halloween!
