1st Halloween

Annie was a sweet little pumpkin for her 1st Halloween. She was an asleep pumpkin for the majority of the night and when she awoke she decided that being a pumpkin was way too hot so we didn't get a lot of pictures.

We went trick or treating with my four year old niece and we were walking from the first persons house when I told her to tell them "thank you". As she turned around to do so, the little rag doll tripped over her treat bag and landed right in a prickly cactus. I sat there for about 10 minutes just pulling out the needles in her knee and hand. She couldn't have been wearing a better costume to absorb cactus needles. Needless to say, I felt so bad.

Murder at the Juice Joint!

The day before Halloween, Ben's sister Kate and friends, had a big Murder Mystery party. It was set back in the 20's as you can see. I won the Dressed to "Kill" award. Ben's brother's friend thought I was dressed up to be Mrs. Doubtfire, but whatever, it got me an award right? It was a good time. It's just fun to get all dressed up since it doesn't seem like there's as many opportunities the older you get. So... thanks to all those who put it together!!!
