Halloween 2008

We celebrated Halloween a couple times this week. Wednesday night we had our ward "trunk-or-treat." Everyone thought we were crazy being out only 5 days after Seth was born.


My two little ragamuffins!


Here is Savannah's Raggedy Ann costume. Her Aunt Victoria made it for her. We love it. She looks so big in it. Thanks Aunt Victoria!


Can you tell she was excited to be wearing a bonnet?


Grandma and Raggedy Ann...thanks for making my hair!


The whole look...I wish you could see her tights better, they are red and white striped.


Smiley little doll!


Here is my little version of Raggedy Andy. He's so little!


Here is Savannah with our friend Jen Sturdevant!

Here is how Seth experienced his first trunk-or-treating...look familiar?


Here she is when we first got to the church.


This is the view of her that I was used to that night. Off and running! She loves her new found freedom.


Someone at our ward Trunk-or-treat had pizza, or at least that's what my nose smelled. So Orson stopped and got Papa Murphy's on the way home. Doesn't it look awesome. That's my pizza, Orson got a pizza with chicken, artichoke, and bacon, he loved it!

Thursday is Story time at the Library. And since we had grandma and grandpa here to help us this week, I decided to take advantage of that and make sure that Savannah got to go. We switched to the older group, and I think it will be much better for her. There were so many kids there, the room was almost too small, but it was great for playtime which we do at the end of each storytime.


Bubbles are the highlight of playtime for the kiddos, I think. They all just laugh and jump around.


Grandma followed Savannah around since I'm supposed to be taking it easy. You know that it's killing me.


She loves playing with the balls although she just carries them around. We haven't mastered the skill of throwing yet, which I'm okay with b/c then I don't have to worry about flying object around the house.


Here is Seth in one of his Halloween outfits. This one Grandma and Grandpa Anderson got him. They brought it to the hospital when they brought Savannah over to meet Seth. This is one of Kae's favorite pictures of Mr. Seth.


He looks so big. I love his eyes.

Here are the two kiddos in the Halloween shirts from Grandma and Grandpa Anderson. I wish I was looking at the right camera...arggg!!!!!


I love this picture of my TWO kiddos. hehehe... it seems strange to say two kiddos...They are the best! and totally adorable don't ya think?

Friday night we went trick-or-treating on our street for a little bit. The weather was kinda warm, and Savannah was tired so we didn't stay out very long. Savannah had a good time though I think. She loves to just be able to walk, or should I say RUN around.


Here is our little family on Halloween. I decided to not put Seth into his Raggedy Andy costume, he had a onsie that said, "this IS my costume." Everyone in the neighborhood loved to see him.

Here is Savannah starting to trick-or-treat. This is at our house, Grandma Anderson was passing out candy. She is so funny, she just wanted to put the candy back into the bowl.
And we are off...look at her adorable costume. Thanks Aunt Victoria, we loved the way it looked and fit! And Thanks to Grandma Anderson for helping with the hair. I thought it looked perfect, even though she kept pulling it out.

Isn't her daddy the greatest ever? They look so cute together walking down the street. Although the hand holding thing didn't last very long. She's just a tad independent...just ask her Grandpa Anderson.


She was amazed by all the inflatable things that people had in their yards. Especially this one, it had a carousel with witches inside it...she stood there watching it for a while.


It was so funny, she was walking up to this house, saw the door and stopped for a minute. It was almost like she could read what the tape on the door was saying. Funny Girl!


Here she says "knocking" on the door. She would put her hand sup on the door and then turn and run. I think we are in trouble when she gets older. Can you say ding-dong-ditch?

Here is the first treat she got on our jaunt around the block. After they gave her candy, she would just stand at their door smiling. We literally had to turn her around to get her to leave.
All in all we had a fun night. After we got home, Savannah went to bed, and the rest of us adults spent the evening lounging in front of the TV with popcorn and candy. Mom and I watched Hairspray, while Dad and Orson watched Knight Rider.
