Happy Halloween!

We had a great Halloween this year! I think I enjoyed Halloween this year as much as I did when I was a kid. Isabelle was so excited about her costume, going trick-or-treating and what all of the other kids were dressed up as. This year she was Alice from "Alice in Wonderland" and she looked super cute!

Last weekend we kicked off the Halloween week by going to the zoo for their trick-or-treating festivities. None of the animals were out but they had treat stations set up, a spooky train ride and carnival games. It was a bit chilly but Isabelle loved getting treats to put in her pumpkin bucket.

The bottom of the panda is a HUGE pumpkin that was grown at a farm in Ft Wayne! It was pretty impressive!

On Wednesday, we had a Halloween party with our moms group. We haven't been to very many events since the summer is such a busy time so Isabelle was very excited to see some kids she hasn't seen in a couple of months! She had a lot of fun playing and loved seeing everyone in their costumes!

Then on Halloween we went to spooky storytime at the library in the morning. We haven't been to storytime since spring so it was fun to be back! After storytime Isabelle played with her friends in the Early Learning Center.

After naps we got ready for the big event! Daddy even left work early so we could hit the streets at 6PM on the dot!

We live in a neighborhood with only 9 houses so we went down the street to another neighborhood to go trick-or-treating. We took the wagon so Isabelle wouldn't have to walk the whole time. Little legs get tired sometimes! I was impressed though because she ended up walking for the majority of the trick-or-treating!

The neighborhood we went through is really a big! We didn't even make it through half of the neighborhood before we headed home. Isabelle really had a lot of fun! She would go up to every door and say "trick-or-treat" and made sure to say "thank you" after she was given her treat. I was very proud of her! She would get very excited when she saw a Disney Princess! She went to the same house at the same time as Belle and was just beside herself with excitement! She told us that she was going to go trick-or-treating with her friend, Belle! LOL! Oh and heaven forbid someone think that she was Cinderella! She made sure to tell them, "I not Cinderella, I Alice"!
