Halloween 2008

Halloween this year was interesting, because Kyra's at that age where she kind of understands what's going on, but in many ways is still just a little, bitty girl.

For instance, she loved the whole idea of dressing up, and couldn't wait to put on her fairy princess costume, complete with crown, wings (thanks Katie!), tutu and wand. However, when it came time to actually go door-to-door, it was a little overwhelming for her. She loved ringing the doorbell, but then when someone she didn't know answered the door, she didn't quite know what to do--we only went around to our neighbors' houses, but it wasn't like ringing the doorbell at Grandma & Grandpa's.

The very cool thing was, even as late as that morning, the skies had continued to pour rain, and the evening forecast didn't look much better--Showers, instead of just plain rain. But about 3 o'clock, the clouds went away and the sun actually came out! And miracle of miracles, it stayed dry & was even fairly warm! How often does that happen here?

All in all, she had a great time, looked absolutely adorable, and we have more candy than should be legal---it turned out we didn't have anybody come to our door because we were out with her during the prime candy hunting time, so the 2 very large bags of Costco candy we had bought to hand out, is unfortunately still here! Boo!

Here are some pictures from our pumpkin carving party and the cutest fairy princess you'll ever see:

Blessings friends!
