Happy Halloween everyone! One day Allie’s the birthday girl and the next she’s Minnie Mouse! She picked this costume out herself a couple weeks ago. I didn’t think to take it out of the bag until this morning, so it was a little wrinkled, but still adorable! She was very excited to wear tights and her pretty shoes again. She was also very excited for Mama to draw whiskers on her face! But halfway through she tried to change her mind. Luckily I got her to let me finish.
And can’t you tell Allie was SO excited to be dressed as Minnie Mouse? Dada said she wore the ears through breakfast. She wore a pretty dress yesterday for her birthday and then Minnie Mouse dress today. I’m not sure how she’ll react to wearing normal clothes tomorrow.
Allie had a great birthday. We had a lot of fun with Bridget, Taegan and Gianna at Chuck E. Cheese’s. I was surprised at how much Allie loved it but I think it helped that the older girls were there to play with her. I think it wouldn’t have been quite so interesting if it was just Doug and me taking her. Thats why I’m glad Allie’s going to have a brother!
The only minor snag was when my camera batteries died while Allie was opening presents. The low battery indicator hadn’t even shown up. So I was afraid it was something worse and that I wouldn’t be able to get the pictures off the camera. But I changed the batteries this morning and the camera’s fine. I took the last few pictures on my phone. It will take some time to get the photos all organized though since this is a really busy week and I have to get the pictures from two different sources. I hope to post them soon though!
Tonight we’re hoping to take Allie trick-or-treating for the first time. Its pretty cold and windy today, but we’re hoping to take her to a couple houses. We’ll have to drive around a bit because our part of the neighborhood doesn’t seem to take part in handing out candy much. I’ll also try to snap a few pictures of the trick-or-treating, but those may take a little while to post as well.
