For the second year in a row, Mike and I took the kids to a Halloween party at a small farm. Here's last year for comparison.
This year the animals were a much bigger hit. However, learning "moo," baa," boo," and "bye-bye" all around the same time can be tricky. Cows sometimes say "boo" and sheep occasionally say "bye-bye."
Gotta love the tippy-toes.
Watching the kids dance around one day, this costume idea came to me. Ten minutes later, I'd found Sophie's Gymboree poodle-skirt costume complete with tags and Michael's leather jacket on eBay. Right sizes, right prices...ours.
Sophie looooved this rocking horse and we think she'll be asking Santa for something similar this year. Perhaps his elves should make two?
Mike's parents and my mom came along today. It was Mike's dad's first real outing since his illness, and it was great to see him getting around so well. I suspect the photo above will become Grammie's desktop wallpaper very soon. :)
