Halloween 2013

I can't believe it's already almost November! It still feels like we're all the way back here where Millie was just a wee babe and we were just moving in this house. But tonight watching her walk confidently next to Daddy, saying "teetateet" and "tey too" she showed me just how far we've come this year!

We woke up to rain this morning. In fact, it woke me up around 4am. Thanks for that. Millie and I watched the rain and even ventured out into it a little bit.

Also, our Halloween mantel:

Sarah's birthday is today! She made a deal with Mom a while ago that if she made first chair at her regional choir competition she would get to skip school on her birthday and come shopping in Houston. Of course, she made first chair! So they ventured down despite the rain and we had a fun few hours with them. Happy birthday, Sass!

Gummy bears kept her quiet while Sarah tried things on

She said, "Me! Another one, another one, another one!" 
A happy birthday indeed. Let's just say our childhoods have been very different

Poor Millie only got to sleep for a half hour, thanks to my having to stop at the grocery store on the way home. She was such a trooper though.

We went to our neighbor's house with a few other neighbor families for dinner and pumpkin painting. Millie loved seeing Isabella, who is a couple of months older than her, as well as Jared and Ethan since she sees them frequently and knows them.

That's one sincere smile!
Then it was {finally} time for trick-or-treating! We waited for Daddy to get home from work so he could take her while I passed out candy. While we waited, Millie learned (and was upset by learning) that there's a whole bowl of candy for other kids, not her. She kept grabbing pieces and putting them into her bucket!

Millie fell and scraped her elbow and knee pretty good, which I didn't know about (the scrapes) until I sprayed her with mosquito repellant. Bad move, Mom! I felt awful but she got over it quickly. Once Daddy got home they hit the road!

Millie came back with a bucket full of candy- so heavy that Daddy had to carry it. So we jumped in the car and headed over to Ivy Trail and then to see Gigi and Poppy! 

Delilah was so sweet and kept giving Millie loves
After visiting with Gigi and Poppy (and being spoiled with even more candy!) we came home and got our little soccer player to bed. We're all exhausted. I guess that means the day was a success!

haha! I had to laugh about the mosquito repellent! Horrible/hilarious! Also, I love that little pumpkin painting project. I might have Eva do that to her little pumpkin today.
