Happy Halloween! I hope everyone has a safe and fun time today.

Are you celebrating? If so, how?

Do you dress up? Or, what are your kids dressing up as?

Adorable! We didn’t dress up our little one (not really big fans of Halloween, so we do the bare minimum!), but our three-year-old dressed up for preschool and was the prettiest little butterfly.

You know, I’m not a huge Halloween fan either, but I couldn’t resist this costume for her. :)

Oh How precious! I love her outfit and she is just gorgeous- like her mother:) My son is dressing up as a fireman. A friend of ours have him a real life firefighter outfit for his 2 yr b-day back in the spring. We took some pics of him at the firehouse and the firefighters were actually in awe of his outfit! LOL! Have a great night!

Your baby girl is ADORABLE!!! Oh cherish this time…. My “babies” are growing too fast. My oldest has been wavering as to whether or not he will dress up tonight. :-) Have fun!

Thank you, I already can’t believe how fast she is growing!

Oh my goodness, how cute! Isn’t this age so much fun!!! My twins are going to be Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf. :)

Holy cuteness!! I miss my girls being that age :( But 5 & 7 are fun ages, too. We’re going to a neighborhood party then a tractor/hayride around the neighborhood for trick-or-treating. The hardest part was deciding what spooky appetizer to bring :-) I’m not dressing up but I’m wearing a black wig and black spackeled nail polish with glow-in-the-dark polish showing through the cracks.

Happy Halloween!! xoxo

25 Rachel October 31, 2011 at 4:28 pm

Sounds like so much fun! What appetizer did you decide on? Sounds like you’re going to be one hot momma!

26 the wicked noodle October 31, 2011 at 4:34 pm

I took the easy route – I did tiny individual cheese balls that look like pumpkins. I also put prosciutto and cheese with halloween cutouts on crackers. And I’m bringing along some of my favorite beer so it should be a fun time! I have to walk all of three houses down so it’s all good :-)
Happy Halloween, my friend! :-)

27 Rachel October 31, 2011 at 4:39 pm

Sounds fun! Can I come? ;)

What a little cutie!! She will be sure to snag all the treats tonight, I am sure. My son is going as Perry the Platypus (from Phineus and Ferb).

30 Rachel October 31, 2011 at 4:27 pm

Fun! We’re not taking her out this year because I wouldn’t let her eat the candy anyways! We just dressed her up for some cute photos ;)

31 Colleen October 31, 2011 at 3:20 pm

SO cute!!! I just want to give her a big hug and kiss XO. Love that neice of mine!

Reply

32 Rachel October 31, 2011 at 4:27 pm

I’ll give her lots of hugs and kisses from you! She’s walking more and more now–it’s crazy! And SO cute.

Reply

33 Colleen October 31, 2011 at 4:35 pm

Is she walking all by herself with no furniture or support?! Evan still needs support, but he has a little walker that he loves to walk behind.

Reply

34 Rachel October 31, 2011 at 4:39 pm

Yep! I think her record is about 8-9 steps but she is getting braver.

35 Geni October 31, 2011 at 4:33 pm

Oh my gosh! I am drooling over the cute baby shots. The costume is adorable, the baby is so cheek pinchable (I actually never do that…don’t worry) and you look great as well. Have a very happy Halloween today. I’ve been out of town with very little electronics…iphone only and have a lot of blogs to catch up on !

36 Rachel October 31, 2011 at 4:40 pm

Thanks Geni! Have a great night :)

She’s beautiful! I’m an empty nester now so I just get to watch everyone else go out trick-or-treating with their kids. Oh, how I miss it. Enjoy your little girl this evening. These moments are priceless!
