Trick or Treat!

I got to go trick or treating for the first time this year!  I was so excited to go outside once I got my costume on.  At first, I didn’t want to hold my pumpkin.  Once I got to put my first piece of candy in there it clicked what it was for and I loved toting it all over 🙂  I got the hang of knocking on doors and taking one…well, maybe 3 or 3, pieces of candy and putting them in my pumpkin.  Then I got my first tootsie pop – pure joy!!!  At first I just munched on it with the wrapper on then Daddy finally took it off for me and boy, oh boy, was I in heaven!!

We visited all of our closest neighbors and had a blast visiting and of course, getting candy.  We also visited the coolest house in the neighborhood.  They super decorate for everything!!  There was a blow up castle, graveyard and boarded up windows and ghosts!  I wasn’t scared of anything – I waved and said HI to all of the monsters.  We even went to see the scary spider and when it jumped out at me I casually climbed up on the porch and tried to stomp on it, LOL.

Here is the spider video:

The photos from my fun evening…plus a few from post trick or treading in my “Candy Inspector” jammies:

iPad Story time with Daddy

iPad Story Time with Daddy..notice my cool, new Elmo slippers!

I love “reading” stories with Daddy on his iPad.  Here I am “reading” the Peter Rabbit “pop-up” book and getting a kick out of being able to make the bunnies laugh:

The Annual Halloween Party!

After feeling pretty crummy Thursday and Friday and sleeping until 10 am on Saturday, it was PARTY TIME!!  Mummy made lots of Halloween goodies and got a bunch of big Halloween balloons.  I LOVE balloons!

I got to wear my awesome dinosaur costume.  I was super adorable!!  Pretty soon, my friends came over all dressed up too!  Miss Elena came as Tigger and her Daddy was Pooh and her Mommy was Piglet – cute!!  Miss Shelby was a super cute lady bug.  Miss Addy was an awesome lion – her hairdo was great!  Miss Soo-ya, our neighbor, was a leopard cat – pretty!

Here I am in my dinosaur costume:

We all had fun playing and eating.  I am so tall I could reach anything I wanted on the food table…and did…over and over.  I ate so much junk that I threw up a little at the end 😦   I had a spider cupcake, 2 forked eyeballs (donut holes), haunted graveyard spinach hummus dip, and vegetarian chili – yum!

We tried to get the group photo we did last year…but we did NOT want to sit still!  We finally got a few shots of the kiddos on our Mummy’s laps and Mummy got a video of me jumping gleefully on the sofa when I should have been sitting nicely.

Here is the video of the attempts at a group baby only photo:

Here are the photos:

Stunt Driver…do not try this at home!

Mummy has been trying to capture this on video for a while now.  This is my preferred way to drive:

More Snow!

I got to go out and play int he snow again this afternoon 🙂  Here are some more photos…you can tell the ones where I would really rather be back outside.  Mummy will post a few videos later.

Here is a video of me in the snow:

Snow!

It snowed!  It snowed! It snowed! Hooray for snow!!  I was mesmerized watching it from the moment i got up and looked out the window (which is right over my changing table).  I just stared and stared, saying “snow! snow!”  When we got downstairs I ran right to the window to watch some more.

Then, I got to go outside and play in it before breakfast and school.  Mummy got me all bundled up in my new snow pants and snow jacket, a hat, gloves and my new boots.  I was so bundled I could hardly move, LOL.  I was warm though 🙂  I LOVED it!  I had a little trouble walking in the deep part but once I was back on the sidewalk I learned that snow is delicious, lol.  The only sad part was when Mummy and Daddy made me go back inside to have breakfast.  I cried and cried and cried…and cried some more.

Here are a few shots from my first snow of the season experience.  This afternoon we’re going sledding!
