Happy Halloween!

This is MiniM.E.'s first Halloween where she actually understands what's happening.  In fact, since her birthday she's been getting excited about it.  "...and I will say "trick or treat" and I will get CANDY!!!"

Also, now that we have so many toddler activities and playgroups and live in such a kid-friendly town, Halloween really started for us on Saturday.  Saratoga held its annual Fall Festival and we decked Molly out in her costume face paint to take part in the festivities.

pumpkin rolling was a huge hit!

the pony ride was not :( 
Sunday we took a break from Halloween and made one last trip to Ellm's Farm before they closed for the season.  It was chilly and we only lasted an hour or so before the sleet started and we decided to call it a day.

In the afternoon MiniM.E. dressed up got her face painted for our neighborhood's annual Halloween Parade. The weather stayed cool and despite the rain that fell on us as we ended the parade, it was a success and MiniM.E. had a great time.

Monday we painted MiniM.E.'s face for our library playgroup, but it was such a hectic morning, I didn't get a photo.

The rest of the week we got a Halloween break.  After our new Tiny Tumbler's class on Thursday (which was AMAZING!)...

 We got ready for the real deal.  Unfortunately, we got rained out of our annual trick-or-treating at the Riggi Mansion.  And even though MiniM.E. was super excited to get out and go trick-or-treating for the first time, we got rained out of that too.  Fortunately, we had a playgroup Halloween Party to go to and MiniM.E. had fun (even though she was so tired because she skipped her nap), so Halloween #3 was a success.

just hanging out
I think next year will be our best Halloween yet!
