Trick or Treat!

Lilly and Mamie were a princess and an octopus for Halloween. Obviously, there was no real theme here--just pink. Lilly was so excited this year and it was so much fun to see her really get into Halloween and trick-or-treating. She got to wear her costume to mother's day out at our church on Tuesday. I have never seen her so proud or excited. Mamie is probably still wondering why I dressed her in a costume with extra arms and legs and we knocked on everyone's door. Jon unfortunately had to work until 9:30 and I had both girls and the 94,000 trick-or-treaters that knocked on our door by myself. We have run out of candy every year we have lived in this house. Our neighborhood really gets into Halloween and it seems like every kid (and adult) in Lebanon comes here to trick-or-treat. Does anyone else have adult trick-or-treaters? I find this very strange and just can't fathom knocking on someone's door in my jeans and t-shirt and asking another adult to drop candy into my plastic grocery bag. Oh well. I finally turned the lights out after I ran out of candy and put Scole (the killer dog) on the front porch to scare everyone away. It worked.

I am so glad we had such beautiful warm weather!

I just had to post this picture--I couldn't believe Mamie actually kept this hat on! I loved it and you can see her 2 little teeth.

They look so cute - what a fun Halloween! OK - we got one of the adults this year - a woman - dressed in normal clothes with a grocery sack. What a wierdo. What is up with that?

You are so funny! I can't believe adults do that, not dressed up on top of that. I agree, weird. I love the costumes. They look so cute. Lilly does look proud - she has the perfect posture in that picure of her sitting on the floor - hilarious! I love the two tooth pumpkin!

SO CUTE!! I love the the octopus costume! Where did you find it? Lilly looks very beautiful as a princess with her jewelry and all! Mamie's little teeth are so sweet. I will freak out when Henley gets teeth. I had to work, too. On my home, I saw lot of "costumeless" kids with Kmart sacks all up and down the streets. That Memphis for you.

Your girls are so cute! Lilly makes a perfect princess! Oh, and how did I miss that you lived in Lebanon? I guess I just assumed you lived in Nashville! I don't know if you remember, but I grew up in Lebanon and my parents are still there. The adult trick-or-treaters don't surprise me! :)

The girls costumes were adorable. We missed you guys at Trunk or Treat this year, but it was a mad house! I saw a comment you left on Laura Beth's blog and found yours.. she and I went to high school together. Small world!

Obiviously, I should not post comments when I'm tired because I can't write complete sentences.
