Halloween 2009

This year Avery was Minnie Mouse for Halloween. Although she isn't old enough to tell me exactly what she wants to be for Halloween yet, I had a pretty good idea that Minnie would go over well since she LOVES Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Sure enough, the first time she dressed up in her Minnie costume she was soooo excited and didn't want to take it off. I was glad she got to wear it a few times to our church Fall Festival, a Halloween party, and then to Trick-or-Treat. We had so much fun this year and got many compliments on our precious Minnie. Tonight when we went Trick-or-Treating, a lady called Avery Mickey Mouse and Avery was quick to correct, "No I not Mickey, I Minnie Mouse." Not sure if the lady understood that whole correction, but she smiled and gave her a handful of candy. She also loved her trick-or-treat bag, or her purse as she called it, which my mom actually made for me when I was little. So fun! The first picture is Halloween last year when Avery was a little which - I can't believe how much she has grown in one year!

Halloween 2009 - Avery's "cheese" face
Playing a game at the church Fall Festival
Waiting for the music to start for the cake walk with Hazen
Climbing up the inflatable slide with Hazen
Sliding down the slide
This time she came down the stairs
Choosing a duck (which she really wanted to put in her bag rather than the candy)
Abby wanted to take Avery trick-or-treating with her
Warming up to the idea of trick-or-treating with dad - he held her the whole first part of the adventure
Mom's turn to hold sweet Minnie
She finally got brave enough to walk up to the door with Abby by herself! What a fun night and the weather was great.
