Happy Halloween!

Yesterday was busy! We ended up celebrating Halloween the whole weekend long.

First up was a birthday party for Alaina's friend Skyela who was turning 2. It was at a horse farm so Olivia got her first horse ride! I was surprised that she wasn't a bit scared to get up on this gigantic horse. . .

Riding high...

and then continuing with the horse theme Olivia dressed up as the cowgirl "Jessie" from Toy Story.

Our not so enthusiastic ladybug...

They've all got colds right now, even little Corinne. Takes a little bit of fun out of the holiday.
We trick or treated around our neighborhood and downtown where we live. It was fun seeing all the neat costumes and decorations. Then tonight there was a Halloween event at the church with games. The kids all had to play for their candy. Olivia made a bracelet, bookmark, and won a cupcake on the cake walk. Can't wait till next time! Happy Halloween!

Staying Busy

The weather is great for getting out so that's just what we did yesterday. It keeps the girls busy without me going crazy trying to keep them occupied in the house. There is a neighbor down the road who sets up Halloween inflateables all over his yard so that was the first stop. It's a really cool set up with paths to walk through and Olivia loves it.
Alaina hasn't been scared over other Halloween decorations before, but she did not like the Gargoyle! Olivia wouldn't go near it either.

The jack o' lantern and pirate ship were fine though.

Last stop was the playground. Kind of muddy from the rain, but that's ok. Even though Alaina not walking she really gets around at the playground and has her own fun. She likes standing at the bottom of slide ladder waiting for Olivia. Because of course Olivia has to climb the slide and go down the ladder instead of the other way around. Alaina also likes the little playhouse there.
Good times!

Cute new pics

Some cute pics of the girls we had done. Unfortunately Sear's has started watermarking the pictures unless you pay for the digital rights. They were all so cooperative and adorable. Certainly rare for picture day!
