Halloween Day 2009

It was a busy Halloween day at our house. This morning Laura went to a birthday party. Then, while the weather was good, the lighting was good, and the girls were good, we took a new family picture. Thanks Mom and Deb for helping us get some great ones. These are my favorites from the endeavor. It will be wonderful to have a new one above the mantel - particularly one that includes Miss Eliza. Here are my favorites:

Then we went for some yummy food to fill our bellies before Trick-or-Treating; a J-Dawg and Pumpkin Spice Krispy Kremes. YUM-O! But the girls just couldn't wait to get out and Trick-or-Treat! We layered them up to withstand the cold, glittered their hair, took some pictures (in front of Sara's "Mister Bones"), and they were off! And, I must say, they made beautiful little princesses.
Sara really "got" Trick-or-Treating this year and Laura was bouncing off the walls. They went a long ways and got a great haul. Jason and I took turns with the trick-or-treaters, or at home with Eliza and manning the door. We got a LOT more kids this year than we did last year. They loved getting to see both Grandmas and Laura was so beat by the end that she fell asleep on Grandma F's lap. It was grand fun!


  1. What a fun day for two darling princesses!

  2. Looks like you had a great Halloween! Those costumes are really nice. I will have to look into them.

    Your family pictures turned out wonderful. My vote is for the middle one. The girls look like they are looking more at the camera. I like the first one next. Of course, pick the one that you like the best though. You really can't go wrong with any of those!

  3. I love having our very own princesses and they look so adorable! I think the new family pictures look fantastic!

  4. That is wonderful. Your kids look darling and I love the family pics. How will you choose?

  5. Glad the pictures turned out! You guys were so easy!

    Thanks for letting us visit you on Halloween! Jacob LOVED the trick-or-treating!

  6. Such pretty girls you have. I love your family pictures too!
