Technical difficulties have kept me from posting the past week or so (technology hates me). For some reason uploading pictures just wouldn’t happen. Well, I found a way around it. I had to email myself the photos for this post. Ha! Take that computer!
Anyway…Halloween! It’s never been my favorite holiday. It’s my least favorite in fact. Not a fan of scary movies, spiders, bats, pumpkin-flavored-anything. But, having kids sure adds a fun element to it.
Squeaks was a butterfly and Little Dude was a dinosaur. Both ridiculously cute. Halloween morning we joined some friends at a local retirement home for a toddler table-side trick or treat. We did this last year and it has been such a fun experience watching the kids with the older residents. The kids make their way around a long table collecting candy from each person. It’s fun to watch how happy it makes all those involved. We don’t give the kids sugar though so Squeaks enjoyed a granola bar while the other kids had some cookies. Since she doesn’t even know what candy is and we call cookies “nasty pods” (half joke, half not), she didn’t complain at all and was quite happy with her granola bar.
Later that evening we walked down to our church’s harvest festival. Squeaks is old enough now that she understands how to play the games and she really loved the petting zoo and pony rides. This was her first pony ride in fact. Little Dude just couldn’t stand staying in the stroller so we let him loose and he had a blast exploring with me following close behind him. He’s getting pretty fast!
All-in-all a fun day!
My sweet little trick-or-treaters! Squeaks ran around our living room pretending to flap her wings. Little Dude looked so cute in his little dino suit (inherited from a friend who outgrew it). Do you recognize Squeaks’ monster feet? LD borrowd them for the day.

Look how happy she is!! Such a sweet girl. I’d totally buy her a pony if I could. The face!
