Halloween Festivities

Just like many of you, our family had quite the busy weekend. The kind of weekend where you don't have a minute to sit down and you just go, go, go. Kind of like the Energizer Bunny, although I only wish I had half his energy! We finally had our big move on Saturday, which I must say, the hubs and his group of buddies did most of the work. I was busy keeping Abby occupied and out of the way, so we started our Halloween festivities early. A local park held a "Halloween Hunt," where the kiddos went crazy searching for candy and toys. Abby enjoyed it, even though she didn't quite understand what was going on. All the running and playing definitely wore her out and she napped for three hours when we got home. SCORE! We were able to do a lot of unpacking during her long snooze! Then the nasty virus swept through our house ... first Abby, then me, then Daddy, and even the grandparents! Ugh.

Doesn't get much cuter than this.

Then Halloween came. I love this holiday ... the costumes, the candy, and of course the trick-or-treating with friends and their little ones. Since we had just moved into the new neighborhood, we thought it would be a great time to "meet and greet" with some of the neighbors. Good choice - we met some nice people... bad choice - we were dressed as Fred and Wilma Flintstone. Great first impression ... but hey, at least they know we like to have fun!

I don't think this photo requires a caption.
(other than ... laughing starts... now!)

Two witches, a broom, and of course a princess.

Having fun trick-or-treating!

I love my little Pebbles.

You guys look GREAT! I've been looking forward to seeing the Flintstone Family, especially Fred....I knew Wilma and Pebbles were going to be beautiful, but I sure didn't remember Fred being that handsome ;)
