Halloween 2008

This year Katelyn was a princess ballerina. I found the cutest French Fry costume from Pottery Barn that would have been perfect for Katelyn but she wouldn't do it - it was the year of the princess! She even got to wear makeup (not shown in the picture below). She was just beautiful!

Owen played a dual role as a frog (when the temps were warmer) and a monkey (during cold weather). Okay, so I couldn't decide! :) He rocked them both!

It was a week long celebration for us. It started on Tuesday when they got to dress up for Kindermusik. Thursday evening we went to Edgewood Academy's Fall Festival. This was the festival where Katelyn's chicken costume won second place in 2006. Pippi Longstocking, Yoda, and Red Riding Hood won the contest this year.

Katelyn had a great time playing all the carnival games.

On Friday morning we went to the Harvest Festival at FBC (Katelyn's school). They watched "Farmer Collins" carve a pumpkin, learned about the life cycle of a pumpkin and planted some seeds, enjoyed snow cones and face painting, went on a hay ride, and played in the pumpkin patch. It was a fun day with her friends.

That afternoon the kids and I took a quick trip to Alex City to surprise Pop and Nana at their workplaces. They really enjoyed showing off the grandkids! :)

By Friday evening we were all worn out and definitely tired of being in costume! We went to the home of Michael and Marcilla Gross to celebrate the upcoming wedding of our friend Stephen Brumbaloe and his fiance Kelly Falany. Katelyn got to experience "trick or treaters" coming to the door for the first time and she really enjoyed that. We don't get many "trick or treaters" in our neck of the woods!
