Halloween 2010

I'm not anti-Halloween or anything; I'm just not its biggest fan. We never went trick or treating when I was growing up, mostly because the houses in our neighborhood were kinda far apart and there just weren't that many trick or treaters where we lived. Plus we always went to our church's fall festival, which I loved.

I love love love this dress! Of course Avery HAD to wear it to church on Sunday, and after multiple attempts, this was the best picture we could get. Sigh.

Anyway, our church doesn't have a festival, and we weren't too enthused about taking Avery trick or treating, mostly because I didn't want her to have lots of candy because guess who would eat it... yeah. I like chocolate. My waistline doesn't, and I have no self-control.

So we decided to take our little cow to another local church's not-technically-Halloween-but-kids-dress-up-and-get-candy party before camping out at home to watch the Ranger game.

Ugh, it was so lame. There were like no games or activities for toddlers, and it was just boring. Not to mention we didn't know anybody. Avery looked pretty cute though. :)

So we left shortly after our arrival and ended up "trick or treating" at our neighbors' houses. We snagged a picture with Brooke and Dave, but we didn't take any with Whitney and Cody. Oops!

Anyway, spending time in the cul-de-sac was much more fun than our original plan. Perhaps in the future we'll plan to stay in the neighborhood and get to know more of the neighbors. And all of the other people who don't live in the neighborhood but drive here to get candy anyway. Without saying thank you. And actually I shouldn't even complain because we didn't even participate since we weren't home. I'm just going off of what I heard. Maybe I should check that attitude, haha.

But check out my little Avery-bee from last year. I can't believe she was so little!

And next year she will definitely dress up as something more girly. Maybe I'll be able to sew by then :)

What a difference a year makes! We're not big on Halloween either, but I think that will be changed once they go to school because everyone will be dressing up. Too bad the church thing was a bust. We had trunk or treat at ours for the first time. It was fun but I can see some improvements for next year.

Macyn was a cow this year, too! Although she looks more like Avery's bee picture since she was so tiny - and the costume only lasted for a grand total of 6 minutes. I cannot believe how big Avery is getting. Can't wait to see you guys soon!
