Halloween 2014

Happy Halloween! Boy did we have an full day of fun...with lots of friends, delicious appetizers, and obviously lots of trick-or treat fun! 

Celebrating holidays with little ones is just so magical! Kate was pretty excited about Halloween last year but man it was just that much more fun this year. Kate decided very early that she wanted to be "Ariel Mermaid." However, she loved talking about many many other possibilities but always came back to Ariel...thank goodness. We decided that it would only be fitting to have Millie be Ariel's best friend, Flounder! I had so much fun making their costumes and was thrilled that Kate loved her so much. She will be wearing it for months to come I am sure. 

We've had amazing weather in Iowa since our return but just as luck would have it a major cold front came in for Halloween leaving us to Trick or Treat in 39 degrees...brrrr... fortunately Kate didn't seem to mind putting her coat over her shells...good think her coat was purple :) We didn't stay out too long but with our about hour of trick-or-treating along with the annual med school Halloween parade and trick-or-treat Kate got quite the haul. And unlike last year, Kate actually wants to eat her candy, not just sort it. 

Kate's already got big plans for next Halloween...time will only tell what she will really be come next year!

Trick or Treating at the med school...Kate was thrilled to have other princesses to be with!

  1. Kate and Millie look darling in their costumes! Great sewing, Hay. I think that this will be Kate's favorite dress-up. So glad you all had such a fun Halloween. We loved being with you while you were home!
