Halloween 2014

Posted by Amy O. , Thursday, November 6, 2014 1:42 PM

We had a spontaneous pre-Halloween when about 5 min. to 6:00pm on the Saturday before Halloween, Rachelle texted and said, "I'm taking the boys to Trunk or Treat at NewSong.  Want to meet me there?"  And we were just sitting around, Vianne finishing up dinner, and so we said, "Sure!"  So we went the easy route (we didn't have all the pieces of her 'actual' costume yet) and slapped a fairy costume from her dress-up clothes onto Vianne and headed out.

So quickly that we forgot the camera...so we're seeing (not so great) cell phone photos here.

 Our fairy with an attitude :-D
 Patrick had a moment to slap on his Tony Stark shirt, too
 Cuteness times three!!

 Vianne had her very first pony ride!!  It was very exciting - I wasn't sure if she'd go through with it after hating the bouncy house that evening - and she loved it!

A few days before Halloween, we finally had all the elements of her costume in place so we tried it all on together.  The cutest little Doc McStuffins ever, if you ask me...

 She, of course, had to give Mama a check-up!

 And now, finally, to Halloween itself!  Little O, the sailor man, on his first Halloween, which also fell on his 3 months old day... Not a big participation factor for him this year, but still a chance to be totally adorable! :-)
 It was fun that Halloween fell on a Friday because that's Story Time day at the library.  So we dressed up about 10:00am.  Vianne is, like usual, brimming over with joy!

 I know, it's a lot of cuteness to take in...

 Story Time in costume!

 Then trick-or-treating around the library...

 ...and a craft afterwards!  Vianne loved it...
 ...and Oliver hung out, taking it all in :-).
 That night, we got her dressed up again and walked down to City Hall with Daddy.  Turns out there's games there, which require tickets, which require standing in a very long line to get them, which we bowed out of and stayed only long enough to get a few photos.
 Then we wandered back north to home, weaving in and out of the decorated neighborhoods, trick-or-treating all the way.  Vianne was so fun & cute and everybody loved her costume, especially the little girls who knew who she was.  San Dimas is a really fun place to trick-or-treat, making us all the more glad we live in this 'town'.  Vianne came home, Doc's bag filled with candy, and in her beautiful child-wonder, went piece by piece through all the loot ("This one's choc-wate!").  All in all, a fun day!

It is A LOT of cuteness to take in. Glad you found V the perfect Doc shirt. And yay for mama outings to the library! Now if they just had a built in starbucks and nursery you'd be all set. :)
