a belated Halloween

We didn't do our full Halloween plans on Halloween.

Ray was still out of town, Lola had gymnastics and Millie was not in the best of moods.

So I figured, Why push it?

Also, my dad came to visit us that evening, so we had some special Grandpa Al pizza and decided to just stay in and pass out candy.

Of course, after about 15 minutes of that, Lola, who had worn her Rapunzel Getting Married dress to school that day, asked if she could change out of her leotard and go trick-or-treating door-to-door herself in that same "costume."

I was busy with the trick-or-treaters at our place, and caring for a very hyper Millie.

And Grandpa Al was more than willing. So the two of them went out, a little later, but Lola was able to get to about four houses before she came home, proudly presenting her loot.

She had a blast and I so wish I had grabbed the camera...

We decided this past weekend, now that Ray was home, we would have our own miniature Halloween party.

We got Lola in her outfit and then went to see if Millie was in a cooperative mood...

Our little Strawberry.



But it didn't last long. She very quickly started bawling.

Pulling at the strawberry cover and begging us to undress her.

So we gave her a few other options...


But struck out there as well.





Meanwhile, Lola was loving her costume.

Cinderella Getting Married (notice a theme? What a funny kid.).





It was fun. Even Millie had fun, once we took off her costumes and let her run around in just her diaper and jeans. (For some reason, we weren't even able to put a shirt on her until nearly bedtime.)

She's such a cutie.

I am kind of bummed that I was never able to get a picture of both girls side by side in their costumes.

But there's always next year...

Happy (belated) Halloween.
