Halloween 2009

What a great time we had for Halloween this year!

Halloween was on a Saturday, so it seemed like the perfect year to go visit Jody's family for Halloween and make an entire weekend out of it. It was the first time we got dressed up for MaMaw and Papa and got to go trick or treating through Childress! I love small towns like Childress because they always seem to have such great city-wide holiday events. Halloween in Childress is no different. The downtown businesses open up to pass out candy to all the little trick or treaters. Everyone goes! It was a great time, and the girls seemed to have a blast!

This year, the girls went as a Butterfly Fairy Princess and a Lady Bug. I bought both girls costumes at the same time (and actually very early in the month for me!) but when I tried them on them, Eisley's looked super cute, but Mia's...not so much. So, I decided Mia could just wear her ballet outfit and we could make wings and the tu-tu. Easier said than done. I LOVED the way Mia's costume finally turned out (with the GREAT help of Jody with the wings! And the tu-tu was actually fairly easy to make, too.)

Also while in Childress, we got to celebrate Jody's grandmother's birthday with his entire extended family! She is a fabulous lady who loves the Lord, and I am honored to be a part of her family! So much fun!

Enjoy the pictures....

Mama Bea opening cards and presents (with Mia's help, of course.) :)

Always a joy to spend time with Uncle Zach, Aunt Amy, and cousin Zoe!

Sweet sisters!

Gotta appreciate those wings! No, really, YOU DO! :)

We ended the evening trick or treating at Mama Bea's house.

Sweet Cousins. They all had wings, and we didn't even plan it! Great minds think alike, huh Amy??? :)

Beautiful Zoe!!!
