Is it really November???

So true to my promise to myself, I am doing my Halloween post right on time. Whoohoo!! I really can not believe it's November already! That means in just a few short weeks we'll be dragging out the Christmas tree and decorations for a marathon day of decorating. Usually we do it a week or two before Thanksgiving, but I am thinking of doing a bit of a tree overhaul this year. And I'm planning on using all of those wonderful black Friday sales to stock up on the new decorations:) Can't wait!!

But getting back to the reason for this post, we ended up having a great Halloween despite the horribly cold, rainy weather. The girls were SO disappointed when they realized it was pouring rain right at trick or treat time. But we ended up going to Aunt Crystal and Uncle Chris' neighborhood and trick or treating with Aunt Crystal in the rain. Hailey and Mary Kathryn were completely unconcerned about getting soaking wet and ran from house to house. And believe it or not, there were plenty of other trick or treaters out and about, so it ended up being lots of fun. Bella was not really into some of the scary costumes but she laughed and laughed at Hailey and Mary Kathryn running from house to house in excitement. Here are some pictures from last night.....

And these are pictures from the day before Halloween. The girls dressed all up in their costumes and headed out to a carnival. Unfortunately Bella had a vomiting episode on the way that completely covered her and Hailey and cut our plans short. But we all headed home to cuddle by the fire with hot chocolate and some family time instead. Can't think of anything I'd rather be doing!

Hope that everyone had a fun-filled and safe Halloween....Now on to Christmas!!!
