Well I still don't have any words, but I needed to put something new on my blog, not to cover up the last post, but to remind myself that time really does go by, and life does go on.  I racked my brain trying to come up with something, and there is still nothing there.  BUT some friends took pictures of the girls at Halloween, and so if you will forgive me for posting them so late, I know there are at least 6 people who respond to various forms of the word "grandma" or "grandpa" that will be interested in seeing them.

 This is at the ward trunk or treat.  Hallie and Hanna are ballerinas, it was kind of chilly so Hallie has pants on and they are both wearing jackets, but their tutus are still cute.  Devin is a scarecrow, you can't see his awesome patches, but he's a raggedy little scarecrow.  My costume came together in the last fifteen minutes before we left, honestly I hadn't been feeling very well and wasn't sure I would go at all, but everyone was so excited it was contagious, and we pulled this together for me.  Devin called it "misguided fairy", although many people thought I was trying to be an angel... which I thought was interesting.  You can't see it in the picture, but I have silver eye shadow on up to my eyebrows, and purple eye shadow on half way up the eyelid.  Pretty intense.

On the actual night of Halloween we went trick or treating with Hallie and Hanna's cute little buddy Cole.  She plans on marrying him someday.  A few minutes before it was time to get dressed Hallie insisted on being Clifford.  Thank goodness she still fit in it from last year.  Hanna is a ballerina again, and their buddy Cole is Professor Harold Hill, from the Music Man.  That's his hero.


  1. I would have guessed you were an angel of darkness or something like that. Way to pull it together last minuted. Woohoo for fancy eye shadows. Since Nick and I were sick and tired, I didn't get any glitter or eye make-up and it didn't quite feel like Halloween. But, I did wear my big cozy robe over my pajamas, and I liked that. Cute family, Amy.

  2. I think there is some Christmas picture potential there for the upcoming holidays!

  3. Avery also insisted wearing an old Halloween costume, but hers was from two years ago. She was an angel. A scandalous one since it was skin tight and extremely short. Kids.

  4. What I could see of your eye shadow was awesome. And that Harold Hill costume is fantastic.
