My teeny meanies liked getting dressed up on the big day. We went out to our neighbours just to show them off.
I think parents mostly dress their kids up so they can hear other people exclaim how adorable they are. We got a lot of smiles and a lot of comments.
But really it's the photo opportunity that is the reason for the effort. Years from now I'll look back on this halloween and remember how sweet they were... before they knew what candy was.
The farm was fun and an easy outing and the weather cooperated. Sam and Rachel didn't seem too interested in the animals and definitely didn't understand the dress up business. But they liked the pile of pumpkins, were completely entertained by the live music and seemed interested in seeing each other in costume, Sam enjoyed licking his for some reason.
Rachel surprised and impressed us by taking her first steps on Halloween too....well, Andrew says she did it the day before for him. But I didn't see it so it couldn't count, right?
Actually it seems fitting. Sam took his first stumbling steps towards me when Andrew was at work a couple of weeks ago. So it's only fair that Rachel took hers her Daddy in private.
We're probably just a couple of weeks away from having two walkers! Crazy! Ooooh how our lives are going to change.
This Christmas is going to be the best yet.
